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 baby’s gender.
With building in mind, invitations for this party 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 Themed Baby Shower Decorations
The decorations for a Construction themed baby shower can involve all kinds of things from true tool boxes to DIY projects that you can put up around the party area easily. 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. For the softer route, you can use building blocks in tower shapes 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.
