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 Midland, TX we like to shake it up. Flowerama of Midland 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!
For a more playful and fun party, try a Rubber Ducky gender-neutral baby shower theme. Chairs and tables should be light blue with plates, napkins and cups being white, like bubbles! The Blue Centerpiece arrangement ties in well with the theme, bringing color and freshness into the party. Cute cupcakes with blue wrappers and white icing are a perfect dessert with this theme, and don’t forget to ask the gusts to each bring a rubber ducky. Set up empty vases near the door so as friends and family walk in, they can drop their duck into the vase. Not only will it look fantastic with this theme, the baby now has so many bath time friends!
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 Simply Lily-Pink 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 Flowerama of Midland we try to make every event unique and special for you. When someone you love is pregnant and it's time to start planning, give us a call or stop in our flower shop in Midland, TX. We love planning parties and we can't wait to make your baby shower a beautiful one!
