Ready to plan the perfect gender-neutral baby shower?

Whether you know if your baby is a boy or a girl or if it is a secret even to you, get ready to party. Here are our favorite tips to throw a gender-neutral baby shower.

First Tip: Don’t Tell Anyone, Even the Host.

If you are keeping your baby’s gender a secret, be careful not to ruin the surprise at the baby shower. Trust us. Those grandmas are sneaky, and they will find the evidence if it’s there. 

Lean Into Gender Neutral Colors

What’s your pregnancy mood? Let’s bring that to your baby shower! Are you bold and bright? Metallic? Feeling neutrals and pastels? Choose a color palate that speaks to you. Remember this is your day! Most themes can be any color palate.

No Theme is Off Limits

People are going to read into whatever theme you put out there, so if you are feeling Barbie and you are having a boy, you do it. A true baby shower makes the family feel real good before baby arrives. Just be sure to tell everyone you don’t know if you’re having a boy or girl so you don’t get an overload of pink clothes. (If you're having a girl, you will!)

Let them Guess the Gender-Inspired Baby Shower Activities

People hate secrets and to some, not knowing the gender of your baby is going to drive some people crazy. Let them have fun with it! Some of our favorite ideas to get your friends and family involved are:

Villie’s Gender Reveal Game:

This is online through your baby website. (Don’t know about it?! Check that out!). If you have an active game you can create a QR code and have people guess while they are at your shower. 

Baby Prediction Cards:

Everyone expects to play games at the shower (and you know we’re all about baby shower games)! These cards will be a keepsake for years to come.

Team Boy vs Team Girl:

Have your guests wear the color of their vote - either pink or blue.

Decorate a Onesie:

Have blank onesies and puffy paint. Guests can decorate a onesie with their own design to show their guess of baby's gender.
