I instantly fell in love with turtles while I was pregnant with my youngest son. I did the whole “blue” scheme for the oldest son and needed a change. I decided that green was going to be the color scheme for this child and turtles fit perfectly with the tones I wanted to use. Planning a turtle-themed baby shower was so much fun.

The diaper cake had to be my absolute favorite. My mom made this incredible diaper cake. I will be posting a tutorial in the near future, so you may want to subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss it. Inside the diaper cake my mom put one of my favorite bottles of wine in it. Not only did it act as a base for the cake, but once my son was born, I could use the diapers AND drink the wine! Genius, if you ask me.

One great thing about a turtle-themed baby shower is that it’s gender neutral. So if you are on team green (not finding out the sex), this would be a great theme for you.
