How To Make Nutter Butter Babies

If you are looking for the cutest and tastiest baby shower food to serve, look no further my friend! These are adorable and super simple to make. Go to your local grocery store and scoop up some:

  • Nutter Butters
  • White Candy Melts
  • Blue food coloring (or pink for a girl - or any color to match your theme)
  • Mini chocolate chips.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave according to package directions. Add food coloring, stir, and dip the ends of each cookie into the colored chocolate.

Add the mini chocolate chips for the eyes. Lay on waxed paper or tin foil to dry.

Serve on a platter for guests to enjoy at the baby shower, or bundle them up in cellophane bags and give as baby shower favors! The perfect baby shower treat!

The best food coloring in the entire world are Wilton Icing Colors - they produce such vibrant colors and you only have to use a tiny bit, which makes them last forever.

You can easily make this cute button letter sign by creating a word document with a large letter (first letter of baby's name) - and adding the birth details at the bottom (optional) - if the baby hasn't been born yet, you can just put the baby's firts and last name.

Purchase several buttons to match the color of the baby's nursery. Coat the printed letter with a thin layer of craft glue. Place the buttons neatly onto the letter. Let dry and place in a frame.

Boy Baby Shower Decorations

balloons for boy baby shower decorations

First ask the mom-to-be if she is doing her nursery in a certain color scheme. There are so many fun and stylish patterns and color combos in stores today! Boring boys themes have been jazzed up and are so cute!

If the expecting mommy has a certain theme in mind, jot down her ideas and thoughts.

Decorate with color coordinated plates and napkins and supplies. Target is my go-to store for finding the cutest baby shower supplies! They have the cutest boy baby shower plates, napkins, cups, balloons and banners! If you don't have a Target near you and love to shop online - You can never go wrong with Amazon! 

More cute and easy boy baby shower decorating ideas:

  • Fill empty baby food jars (labels removed) with colorful jelly bellies and place a tea lite on top

  • Sprinkle counter tops with baby-themed confetti in boy colors (found at craft stores)

  • Float colorful balloons all around - my new favorite way to use balloons are to sprinkle confetti inside before blowing them up. For a boy baby shower, use clear balloons and sprinkle in blue confetti - or whatever color matches your baby shower theme.

Baby Boy Shower Favors

  • Hand out cute hand soaps, bath salts or bath beads

  • Blueberry scented decorative candles

  • Bundle tea bags in organza pouches and include a favor tag saying "A baby is brewing!" - or hand out coffee cup with $5 coffee cards in them (I do this for baby shower prizes for the game winners)

  • Make a batch of yummy sugar cookies, cut into cute airplane shapes. Frost with blue frosting, wrap in some cute bags and tie with a blue ribbon.

  • Package up some jelly bellies or M&M's in a baby food jar and attach a cute "babies are sweet - take a treat" tag

Boy Baby Shower Games

Baby shower games are always fun. One of the oldest games is the toilet paper game. Have each guest to pull off the amount of tissue they think will perfectly fit around the pregnant mom. The one closest to the measurement wins. 

  • There's the clothes pin game. Give everyone one clothes pin. Pick a "word" that if the word is said out loud the person that first hears the word can steal the pin. Normally it's words like "baby" or similar. Make it a word that will be centered around having a baby, so it will be hard to not say it. At the end, the person with the most pins win.

  • There's the baby items on a tray game. Put some random baby items on a small tray, like pacifier, diaper, thermometer, baby spoon, etc, and pass the tray around. Put the tray away and have everyone write down the items that were on the tray. The person that got all the items right wins.

Be sure to have a few good baby shower prizes and gifts for the winners of the games. Things like scented lotions, candles, costume jewelry, etc makes good 'shower winner' gifts. Just place them in a gift bag with tissue paper to make it festive.

You could use empty soup cans (even wrap them in scrapbook paper if you want), fill with colored pebbles and poke skewers into them!

For the pennant, simply cut small triangles out of scrapbook paper that matches the baby shower for a boy theme! What a wonderful food table!

So clever! What a great way to serve drinks! Look at how she used chalkboard labels to write the names of the beverages on!

There are so many wonderful, refreshing drinks you can make - Make healthy fruit-infused water by adding slices of fresh strawberries, limes, oranges and/or lemons to regular water!

This tastes delicious and has no calories! Cucumber water tastes great too! We also have tons of great baby shower punch recipes!

Chocolate covered pretzels are an easy way to make a wonderful impression!

Simply dip pretzel rods (or any kind of pretzel) into melted chocolate (you can tint white chocolate with food coloring to match your color scheme) - sprinkle with colored sugar and let dry on waxed paper! So delicious!

Little Man, Mustache Bash, & Bow Tie Baby Shower Decor

There are so many creative possibilities when decorating for a "Little Man Baby Shower" You could incorporate the popular mustache theme into the bow ties to make a complete "Little Man" baby shower! 

little man baby shower favors banner

You can find these cute Little Man stemless wine glasses and mustache cookie cutters here.

  • Whip up a batch of yummy sugar cookies that have been cut into mustache shapes like the ones above. Package them up in, cellophane bags and tie with a cute bow! Don't forget to add a favor tag! A great tip for frosting sugar cookies is to simply buy the frosting tub that you use to frost cakes (vanilla works best), and add food coloring. Tastes great and is so easy!

  • Wrap water bottles in cute "Little Man" water bottle labels - you can also use the labels as napkin rings! - Make simple water bottle labels by buying scrapbook paper in the theme you want, cut into strips and adhere with clear packing tape.

Little Man Baby Boy Baby Shower Ideas

Decorations For A Boy Baby Shower

This "Mustache, Little Man Baby Shower" was submitted by Tiffany Berkeley from Augusta, Georgia.

The mommy-to-be’s favorite color is yellow so we decided to use a yellow and gray color palette.

We used bow tie onesies and mustache design elements and, since it was a little man theme, she suggested that we use argyle and seer sucker patterns as well.

image of mustache baby shower ideas for a baby boy

Baby shower invitations for a boy were customized with the yellow and gray argyle pattern with a yellow and white seersucker striped onesie. 

Tables were covered with white linen tablecloths with gray or yellow pashmina scarves used as table runners. Vases with yellow and white flowers served as centerpieces on the guest tables. 

Baby themed disposable cameras and baby shower mustache photo booth props were placed on each table for guests to pass around and take pictures throughout the shower. 

Place settings alternated between yellow and gray plates and on top of each plate, a white gable box labeled “My Stache” was filled with all the necessary supplies for the baby shower.

“My Stache” boxes included flatware, napkins, a mustache straw, 3 game cards, a pen, and a packet of M&Ms matching the shower’s colors. 

Various paper products were customized to match the shower’s invitation such as the game

cards, party circles, advice cards, water bottle labels, and food tent cards. 

Yellow and white striped napkins, which mimicked the seer sucker pattern in the paper products, were used at the baby shower dessert table.

A spread of appetizers included a cheese and grape tray, vegetable tray, mini quiche, sweet & sour meatballs, ham sandwiches, and cheese with meat dip served with tortilla chips.

Drinks: Lemonade and iced tea as well as mini bottled water with custom bottle labels in the shower’s colors and patterns were served.


The M&M packets, which doubled as game pieces for the Baby Bingo game that guests played, were a perfect favor for guests once the games were over. 

The “My Stache” gable boxes were used by guests as take out boxes for all their goodies. Sugar cookies were bagged in yellow and white striped favor bags for guests to take as they left.
