Asian Inspired Baby Boy Shower (13 photos)
Because the guest of honor was having a boy, I suggested doing the party in hues of blues and greens instead of the traditional red, black, and gold colors typically associated with an Asian theme.
I used Chinese take-out boxes in blue and green, and embellished them with coordinating ribbon, beads, and charms as centerpieces. I printed out Chinese characters for “mother”, “father”, “baby boy”, “family”, and “happiness” and glued each one to the front. I filled them with goodies for the mother-to-be to take home and added a set of chopsticks.
To fit the party theme, I used an Asian style font for the labels, served almond cookies, wafers, and chocolate dipped fortune cookies. To make the labels and “sweets” banner, I used coordinating scrapbook paper, cut slits on both sides, and inserted a matching ribbon. The candy I chose also coordinated with the theme and colors. To create height, I used boxes covered in wrapping paper and matted the top with black scrapbook paper cut to size. I used photo holders and frames for some of the labels and made sure to put out napkins, tongs and scoops for the guests to use.
I made homemade Candy Dipped fortune cookies. I added a personalized tag using colored card stock, my computer, and a heart shaped punch. These candy dipped fortune cookies made perfect favors for each guest to enjoy immediately or take home for later.
My brother made this cute sushi themed onesie gift set. I think the pictures speak for themselves. Besides the old sushi container and the chopsticks, he made everything else…the life like sushi design, the label, and the onesie (there were actually two onesies but one of them is packed in a box for future baby). He’s a genius!
