Our favorite baby shower ideas
1. Gender-neutral baby shower
Many parents-to-be opt for gender-neutral showers, which often are thrown before anyone knows the sex of the baby.. Since yellow is a popular gender-neutral color, you can throw in a little twist by adding a cute bee theme to give your celebration a fun flair!
2. Boy baby shower
If you know the gender of your baby and want to play up the baby boy theme, get ready to get your hands on a whole lot of blue! You can totally have fun with different shades and get creative with the food and decorations, too.
3. Girl baby shower
Of course, there’s also the other end of the spectrum — a baby girl shower. This little mom and baby elephant design has us swooning! We also love the use of different shades of pink that have that girly touch but don’t overdo it.
4. Tropical baby shower
For those who want something a little outside the box, this tropical baby shower is perfect, especially for a summer baby. Embrace the warmer months and transport you — and your baby — with on-trend pineapples and lots of greenery.
5. Gender reveal baby shower
Gender reveal baby showers are super popular right now, and it’s easy to see why. You’ve waited long enough to find out your baby’s gender, so why not take a moment to celebrate it with your family and close friends?
We love this pink and blue cotton candy theme, but get as creative as you’d like!
6. Nursery rhyme baby shower
We love the idea of decorating your baby shower around your favorite nursery rhyme. This “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” theme is so adorable, and it’s relatively easy to incorporate into lots of different decorations and food. Plus, some of the decorations and trinkets could move to the nursery once baby is born.
7. Floral baby shower
This is a style for those willing to go the extra mile for their baby shower! Use all kinds of flowers and plants to decorate your baby shower venue, rather than reaching for traditional balloons and banners. Not only could this save you a lot of recycling, but it surely stands out from the crowd.
8. Boho baby shower
If you like the floral look but want a little more style, a boho baby shower could be the theme for you. With a mix of earthy plants, wood and gold accents, we’re loving the rustic vibes from this theme. The best part is this could work for a boy or a girl, making it totally gender neutral!
9. Royal baby shower
This is definitely the shower for someone who wants to spoil their future prince or princess from the get-go. Red is a bright pop of color compared to the standard blue, pink and yellow pastels, and we love how it’s just a little bit over the top and boujee.
