Keeping your baby’s gender under wraps until the little bundle of joy arrives? Although it may seem limiting to plan a gender neutral baby shower, fear not! Today’s post has innovative ideas that step out of the conventional yellow-only box. With one look at these gorgeous inspiration photos, you’ll be on your way to planning a stylish shower that keeps your guests guessing, and truly celebrates the mommy-to-be.
Start your shower off right with some cute, color-schemed invites that set-up the baby shower theme. This adorably sweet invite not only incorporates a favorite nursery rhyme, but uses a currently trending, gender-neutral color combo I absolutely love: yellow, grey and white. (Just be sure to substitute “HIS” for “THE” to keep the baby’s gender top secret). Both soft and sweet without being too feminine, this eye-catching invite is sure way to start a baby shower off right. (Photo via Pickle Doodle Designs)
Pretty pastels are the key to any baby shower, and this event perfectly plays up the muted-tint rainbow. The combination of pastel-toned green, blue, orange and yellow keeps things light and bright, and completely gender neutral with a fun combination of traditionally masculine and feminine colors. When planning a shower, don’t be afraid to embrace your inner child and add a sweets-filled dessert bar. Complete with cupcakes, macaroons and goodies-galore, a colorful food/present station like this one will easily become the hot-spot of the party. (Photo via Becca Bond Photography)
Rather than throw out blue and pink altogether, why not incorporate them both to keep guests really guessing? This tablescape is a perfect example of mixing and matching the conventional girl and boy colors for a pretty and playful look. Layering two colors not only creates a fun color blocking effect, but adds uniqueness with such an unexpected color scheme. (Photo via Grace Happens)
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! These too-cute-to-resist animal themed favor boxes are a perfect party send-off. Giving guests a little something to take home continues the fun even after all the games are done, especially with these playful party favors. These handcrafted favor boxes can be easily assembled, and can hold a handful of chocolates, gummies, or even cuter—animal crackers. (Photo via Beau-Coup)
