REAL PARTIES: Darling Bow-Tie Baby Shower

Bow Tie Boy Baby Shower Ideas

Get ready for a serious dose of adorable… because this Bow-Tie themed baby shower thrown for Jesi Haack & her new little man is exactly that! Bow-ties adorned everything from mason jars and flower arrangements to the darling ruffle cake, sugar cookies, and stationery. I think my personal favorite detail has to be the ultra creative “bow tie” party garland fashioned from diapers & ribbon though!

“For Jesi’s baby shower, we (me, Carissa of JL Designs & Melody of Sweet & Saucy Shop) decided to celebrate her new little man by having a bow-tie themed party. Posh Paperie‘s invitations set the tone for the clean, cheery decor.

Guests were greeted with a little ribbon bow-tie clip I made, which everyone wore throughout the shower. Instead of a guestbook, Carissa wrote a mad lib to fill in about the baby, which was a lot of fun!

For the decor we incorporated in pops of mustard yellow, kelly green and baby blue. Carissa used a variety of white ceramic vases to keep it light and modern and filled them with an array of monobotanical arrangements using our theme colors – white pom pom dahlias (Jesi’s favorite!), white hydrangea and yellow ranunculas. Wrapped around each vase was a striped or polka dot “bow tie”, which I created using striped and polka dot ribbons in coordinating colors.

To deviate from the standard diaper cake, I created a bow-tie garland using diapers and ribbon.

For lunch, Carissa, Melody and I made light options including bow-tie pasta salad, chicken salad sandwiches with coordinating ribbon picks and tiny sized tomato basil soups.

Shannon SAYS:

Absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this theme! I am going to try and recreate as much of this as I can for my friend’s shower in March! I can’t figure out how to tie the ribbon onto the mason jars and vases to look like the bow ties though…And is there any special trick to making the diaper garland? I hope to hear from someone! Thank you!

Melanie SAYS:

Shannon, I wondered the same thing. I can’t figure out how to tie them but I just cut two pieces of ribbon, one 5.5′ and one 2.5′ I hot glued the larger piece into a loop and put a dab in the middle to form a bow. Then I hot glued the smaller piece around it for the middle. I plan to just wrap the ribbon around the vases and hot glue it tight and then to hot glue the bow ties over the edge. Then just cut the ribbons off the vases after the party. Hope that helps.

I would love more into on the mad lib!
