Twinkle Twinkle Baby Shower


Go for glamorous gold and silver accents with a star-themed party perfect for couples waiting to find out if they're having a boy or a girl. Star garlands, metallic star balloons, gold cupcake wrappers, star cut-out cookies and star-stamped macarons make a studded affair. While art stating "twinkle twinkle little star, do you know how loved you are," is downright sweet.

Bows & Mustaches Baby Shower

Sometimes having a surprise is half the fun. Make the fact that your baby-to-be's gender is still an unknown a game for your guests. At this clever shower, everyone was asked to take a mustache or bow based on whether they thought the baby was going to be a boy or girl. And the theme carried on with a bow and mustache garland, blue frosted mustache cookies and pinked frosted, bow-adorned cupcakes.

Storybook Baby Shower

Make this party for the mama-to-be a literary affair, of the juvenile kind. We love how Kio Kreations used building blocks and children's storybook classics create a whimsical decor for this baby shower. And the theme is universal for both boys, girls and genders-to-be-determined.

Vintage Gender Neutral Baby Shower

Haven't confirmed pink or blue yet? Use both hues in your shower theme like this vintage affair created by Eventfully You. With mason jar centerpieces, a painted vintage bike at the entrance and a chevron decorate cake this party is one your guests will remember. We especially love the rhyme shown above.

Ba Ba Baby Shower

Catch My Party

Make sweet, white, sheep the center of your baby shower decor. Follow the ideas found on Catch My Party including a yarn centerpiece, little lamb cookies and gorgeous, rustic, white and brown color scheme.

Sweet As Can Bee Baby Shower


Especially cute for spring and summer babies, this party theme is all about bees and they're sweet honey of course. The decor here plays off bee hives and honeycomb as well as they cute little striped bugs themselves. Plus, the personalized jars and bottles of honey as party favors are absolutely perfect.

Sprinkles Baby Shower

Don't know whether to focus on pink or blue - focus on a rainbow of colors instead with sprinkles. Sprinkles everywhere. Sprinkles on everything. Your guests are going to love the array of sprinkle-covered sweets you can create from cake pops and cupcakes to pretzels and Rice Krispie Treats. Find more sprinkle-y details from Lulu's Event Design.

Rubber Ducky Baby Shower

Go for gender-neutral yellow in the cutest of ways, by using a theme centered around rubber duckies. Make bathtub displays and bath time favors featuring soaps and salts guests will actually use. Then decorate cupcakes with ducky toppers and other foods and drinks with ducky tags. Rubber ducky is just making more than just bath time fun now!

Yellow & Grey Baby Shower

Grey Grey Designs

While yellow is a classic hue for the "waiting to be surprised" crowd, this party gives it a trendy twist by pairing it with grey. A patterned fabric garland created a beautiful backdrop, while yellow frosted cupcakes on a stand made from hat boxes added interest to the dessert table.
