A Construction Baby Shower can bring you an innovative theme that is unique and leaves all different kinds of options for decorating fun. This theme, although easier to create for a baby boy, could also be utilized for a little girl and of course, a neutral tone for those who want to wait to find out the baby’s gender.
Construction Baby Shower Invitation
With building in mind, invitations for this baby shower can really go two directions and still have a brilliant outcome. You can go with a more realistic approach using bold fonts and true-to-life artwork reflecting cool tools like saws, drills, hammers, and more. Or you can take a softer approach using rounded fonts and artwork more pointed toward baby-to-be with building blocks and toy tools.
If celebrating for a boy or gender neutral, you can use browns, oranges, reds, and blues. Using red and orange as the more prominent colors, you can utilize this theme for a little girl, or you can always work in some pink to add a cute little feminine touch.
Construction Baby Shower Decorations
The decorations for a Construction themed baby shower can involve all kinds of things from true toolboxes to DIY projects that you can put up around the party area easily. Welcome the guests with a large caution sign that reads “Baby Bump Ahead!” It would set the mood and get the guests excited with what’s about to come!
If you go the more realistic route, using bandanna-type covers for the tables could bring a rustic charm to the area, you could string up some clothesline and hang baby coveralls, jeans, and t-shirts for an adorable addition. These will become part of the gift for the baby also so it’s a very practical decoration!
For the softer route, you can use toy trucks, helmets and cones as centerpieces, creating a cute effect, with little characters from Bob the Builder to emphasize a fun construction vibe. This theme would be a wonderful one to use all those rustic decorations you have around your workshop, from shovels and pails to hardhats and goggles.

Construction Baby Shower Food
The food spread for this party can include a variety of different things. Using bold colors like a veggie tray with carrots and broccoli, you can blend with your color palette and use your snacks as a bold centerpiece. Also using foods that construction workers eat, small sandwiches, mini-hotdogs, little burritos, all make a good snack and emphasize the theme nicely.
Desserts can include an array of bright colors and textures to give a full and vivacious effect. Cupcakes with bold frosting with construction picks, popcorns, truffles on sticks, cookies and cupcakes in a variety of flavors all make delicious and easy-to-eat treats.
Construction Baby Shower Drink
Set up a “Fuel Station” serving fruit juice, fizzy drinks, fruit punch, or even sweet tea. You could create fun labels like these below from a baby shower planned by amor creations event and design. Depending on the drinks you are serving, you could put a name to each drinks. “Crew Punch”, “Gas”, “Petrol”, “Fuel”, “Motor Oil” are some other great ideas.
Construction Baby Shower Cake
The cake for this construction baby shower can be like a real construction zone with trucks, cones, and signs all decorating a delicious chocolate cake. You can use thick chocolate whipped cream to create an image of a pile of dirt. Chocolate blocks or rolo chocolates can be used as block of bricks. The top of the cake can have a truck dumping chocolate rocks, and the digger about to grab the cake from the side.
Construction Baby Shower Printable
If you are on a budget, I find that using printables is a perfect way to keep the main decorations to match. This particular printable includes a banner, cupcake topper, thank you tags, mini favor box, bottle wrapper, and so on.
Construction Baby Shower Activities
The interactive activities for this theme can include all different kinds of ideas, you can always have the guests build something, like a birdhouse that can be painted and decorated, giving them something to take home with them.
You can always do a group-type building project as well, like having each guest decorate a different part of a box and then putting it together as a play toy for baby-to-be. Another idea would be to have a station for guests to decorate a block for the baby! You’ll be able to find plain wooden blocks on Etsy or Amazon.
Shit Happens Baby Shower Games
You may want to go past the parents-to-be to decide whether her friends and families would enjoy playing something a little gross, but hilarious! Setting up for this game involves melting different chocolate bars onto the diaper. Have the guests smell and touch to figure out which gooey ‘Poo’ made the mess!
Junk in the Trunk Minute to Win it Game
A perfect co-ed baby shower game would be this Junk in the Trunk game! Mom-to-be can rest and be the judge of the hilarious game! Each player is given a rectangular empty kleenex box with 8 ping pong balls. The box is strapped around the waist and the players need to try to get all the balls out using movement. First with an empty box wins.
Construction Baby Shower Favors
As a take-home gift for the guests, making sugar cookies in tool-shapes can be fun and that allows you to add frosting that matches your theme and an opportunity to personalize them with labels with the same artwork from your invitations.
