It’s A Boy!

 

This past weekend my friend Shea and I threw a couples baby shower for Alina {from The Neapolitan} and her husband. They are expecting a baby boy in January and we just couldn’t wait to love on their whole family! We went with a rubber ducky theme and incorporated light blues and yellows through all our decorations. Shea found the cutest cupcake toppers and I ordered mini rubber duckies and jumbo rubber duckies from Amazon. They were perfect for spreading out around the food and flowers and looked perfect on top of the baby blocks I made. 

If you’re looking to recreate the blocks or make something similar, it’s pretty easy {but a little time consuming}. I found almost everything I needed at Home Depot and it was all under $30. I used 22″ packing boxes, taped them up and covered them with brown wrapping paper. I googled ‘ABC block templets’ and picked the type of font I liked best {I used the ones on this site I saved the image then went and had them printed to 26″ at Staples {the actual letters are only 16″}. Cut out the letters with an xacto knife to create a stencil but make sure to save the middle sections of the A and B. Trace the letters onto the middle of all the box sides and then paint! I choose a baby blue color at Home Depot and had them mix it in one of their small paint sample containers {about $5} I picked up a mini paint roller to cover the larger areas of the letters and small 1″ paint brush to outline them. They were so easy to make and added a fun touch to the shower!
