This past weekend I had the privilege to help with a special baby shower. It was held for my friend and neighbor’s daughter. Yes, she’s having a baby boy! When you are planning a baby shower or any party, I think you should try to have a theme. Last year I held a shower for a couple in our church and their nursery theme was Raggedy Ann and Andy – so I carried that theme over to the shower. You can see more about that shower here. Today, I want to share some of the details for this fun boy baby shower!
You can make a chalkboard with any frame you have on hand by cutting a piece of thin plywood or even foam core board to fit the frame and then paint it with chalkboard paint. I have used both the brush or roll on type of chalkboard paint and the spray chalkboard paint. For both chalkboards in this post, I used the spray paint. Search yard sales for old frames or dresser mirrors that can be used for larger chalkboards. I found both frames used in today’s post at yard sales this past year and each were about $5.

This boy baby shower was a huge success! It was a fun day and the soon-to-be Mom went home with several SUV’s loaded down with gifts for her baby boy! A baby is a blessing from the Lord and a baby shower is a way for us to bless a first time Mom!
Here are a few other showers that I’ve planned or helped with!
