Baby showers are a part of the pregnancy experience and can happen at any time of the year. The parents are frazzled and stressed out, making it hard to plan a great baby shower, let alone try to pick a theme. It's easy to fall into a normal blue for boy pink for girl theme, but here in Westchester, IL we like to shake it up. Palmer Florist - 1-800-Flowers would like to help with a few interesting ideas for gender neutral baby showers.
Whether you're planning a surprise gender reveal, or you just want to shake up the norms, planning a gender-neutral baby shower is going to be fun! When you're planning a gender-neutral baby shower, we suggest starting with a fun theme with color palettes that shy away from tradition pinks and blues. We love planning gender neutral baby showers so here are a few of our favorite themes!
At some point in time, we all wanted to live Under The Sea! This gender-neutral baby shower is a theme based entirely on living in the ocean. We suggest cute fish to cover the walls and Blue Centerpiece to decorate the table. A candy bar is always a hit and for this theme try displaying the candy large, fun shaped glass vases. The candies should be separated by color, and with a sand colored table cloth, you have your very own candy coral reef. In the background try playing The Little Mermaid. Not only will it tie the theme together, it will also entertain any kids in attendance.
For your education-loving friend, try a Book Worm theme for their gender neutral baby shower. Everyone brings a favorite childhood book for the baby and writes a little note on the inside. The books can all be displayed on a table right as people walk in with a Peach Splendor Bouquet sitting right next to it. As guests walk in they know where to place the books and will be met with the light fragrance of flowers. Book themed table settings are a great idea, some would include The Very Hungry Caterpillar, A Light In The Attic, The Lorax, Whinny The Pooh and Little Bear.
All of these themes are just starting points. Each party can be made your own and more customized to the parents and their new baby. At Palmer Florist - 1-800-Flowers we try to make every event unique and special for you.
