Whether the parents don’t know the sex of the baby or reject pink and blue aesthetics altogether, planning a gender-neutral baby shower can be a fun task. Remove the gendered shower themes and baby gifts in favor of ideas that everyone can enjoy, and you’re on your way to a seriously dope party for any pregnant person. 

Start With A Neutral Color Combo

It’s not necessary to have a theme for a gender-neutral baby shower, but it certainly helps the overall vibe. Instead of immediately shooting for something super colorful, consider utilizing earth tones. Taupe, forest green and deep brown are just some options. Another idea? Get creative and use the Pantone colors of the year. Color combos that are reminiscent of moments in your life can also work like your college’s school colors or the palette of the office at your first big job.

How To Make Your Baby Shower Entertaining

One easy way to start planning a gender-neutral baby shower is to do the things you wished your parents did when they were pregnant with you. Think about putting your very first and most recent ultrasounds on display. Upon entrance, it gives guests something to talk about when the party starts.

You should also plan some baby shower activities. Pampers has up to 20 baby shower games that you can print out and Wayfair offers this Onesie Shape Baby Prediction Advice Card game. It lets you guess things like the baby’s day and time of birth and the color of their features.
