It seems like there is an endless supply of baby shower themes all over the internet, but when you want to stick to a more gender-neutral theme, it can get a little tricky! When it comes time to throw a baby shower, there are many reasons why you might choose to go gender-neutral. Maybe the parents-to-be are keeping the gender a surprise, or maybe they’re just not in love with the more traditional pink or blue baby showers. Whatever the reason, we have you covered with the most trendy gender-neutral themes perfect to welcome the sweetest of babies!
1. Teddy Bear Baby Shower Theme
I am in love with this sweet, cuddly theme! Tie in all the beautiful neutral colors with teddy bears everywhere to create the most adorable gender-neutral shower. Pops of gold and greenery bring a sophisticated element sure to wow any mom-to-be. When I was a baby, I was gifted a teddy bear that went everywhere with me, and eventually, I was able to pass it on to my firstborn, so this theme is very near and dear to my heart. If the expectant parents have any special “loveys,” it would be the most adorable personal touch to display them at the shower, along with a childhood photo!
2. Modern Safari Baby Shower Theme
Your guests will go wild over this neutral, modern safari-themed shower! The black and white are so chic, and the animal prints and figurines add the perfect amount of whimsy. The stenciled animal cake is such a sleek look, and it can be pulled off as a super easy semi-DIY! Purchase a white frosted cake from any bakery (even a supermarket), purchase this stencil on Amazon, lay it on the cake, spread on any type of icing or luster dust for a bit of bling, and voila! You have the perfect cake for the occasion!
3. Pastels Baby Shower Theme
The best thing about modern, gender-neutral baby showers is that they don’t have to be primary yellow and green! Soft and beautiful pastels mixed with tans and wood elements work wonderfully. I love these invitations, with their vintage vibe, to set the stage. Using a color scheme instead of a theme is a bonus when the colors match the mom-to-be’s nursery decor. The leftover decor can have a second life as soft accents in the baby’s new room!
Maybe the best thing about modern, gender-neutral baby showers is that it doesn’t all have to be primary yellow and green! Beautiful, soft pastels, especially when mixed in with tans and wood elements, work wonderfully. I absolutely love these invitations with their vintage vibe to set the stage. Using a color scheme instead of a theme works even better when the colors match the mom-to-be’s nursery decor- all the leftover decor can have a second life as soft accents in the baby’s new room!
4. Classic Children’s Books Baby Shower Theme
Classic children’s books may be my all-time favorite baby shower theme. Maybe because I truly love reading classic books to my babies, or maybe it’s the nostalgia; either way, I can’t deny my love for this one. I love the idea that you can use any classic books you already have as the perfect decor, and you can gift any new books you purchase to the new baby’s library.
How insanely cute are the tiny books as cupcake toppers?! For an added special touch, ask guests to inscribe a special message inside their favorite children’s book & add it to their gift in lieu of a card – how sweet for a child to have a collection of books from people who loved them before they were even born!
5. A Little Honey on the Way Baby Shower Theme
A trend I have been loving lately is anything geometric. It’s clean and modern, and I love how that trend was incorporated into this “Sweet as Can Bee” shower theme. Utilize honeycomb shapes in your decor to take bumblebees from sweet and sticky to chic! Elevate your shower even further by incorporating nature tones and lots of greenery. And I can’t think of a more fitting shower favor than these personalized wildflower honey sticks from Etsy!
6. You are My Sunshine Baby Shower Theme
Does it get more gender-neutral than a classic lullaby? I am head over heels for these mellow yellow sunshine vibes and think they might be the perfect fit for a gender-neutral shower. These invitations found on Etsy could not be any more perfect. Combine sunny yellows with soft oranges, other neutrals, and greenery in all your decor to create the perfect feel. I love when you can also bring the shower theme into the food and drinks – think lemon and other delicious citruses to incorporate the sunny vibes throughout!
7. Ready to Pop Baby Shower Theme
This one is all about the fun, bright colors! Start with this adorable invite from Etsy, and your guests will know they’re in for a real party! Use rainbow-colored balloons, signs, florals, and even sequins to make this shower come alive. I can’t think of a better theme to have a super fun champagne toast – pop some bubbly (and sparkling cider) and pour over beautiful fruit popsicles – they will look so festive and taste just as good!
