Once in a Blue Moon Baby Shower!

Perfect theme for a boy shower! Once in a Blue Moon!

Planning a baby shower? I just adore this traditional baby blue shower decorated with a “Once in a Blue Moon” theme! I just love the traditional touches and all the baby blue! Below are all the resources for where the items were purchased so you can throw your own baby shower! The book “The Magic Blanket” is nestled down in a cute wooden wagon for a sweet gift for Mom-to-be! The mini cupcakes with little onesie toppers are adorable. What an easy way to dress up your treats! I also love how the wrapping is coordinated to the shower. You can’t have this be the case for all guests arriving but definitely any gifts you’re giving to mom-to-be can be coordinated and serve as cute table decor as well!

Baby Boy Shower - Once in a Blue Moon Theme!

    Hi I love this theme it is perfect. I would love to know how the cupcake toppers are made (edible or not). Thank You. Your Blog is inspirational.

      Fiona ~ the cupcake toppers are just scrapbook stickers stuck to shortened straws – so they are not edible but you could make them with rolled fondant. Have fun getting creative!

    Renee: Everyone was invited for a “bucket” of lunch. Subway cold cut
    combo is in the bucket ~ used the buckets as plates because they are easy
    to carry with a drink. Good luck with your sister’s shower! :0)
