Classic Gray Decor for a Gender Neutral Baby Shower
When planning your classic gray gender neutral baby shower, you can keep the decor pretty simple. Stick with different shades of gray and add in white and a bit of yellow for a pop of color. Tissue paper balls hanging together create a cute backdrop, and banners and crepe paper can create a wonderful backdrop for a food table or gift table.
Your baby shower can include some fun activities and games, too. Have each guest decorate a onesie for baby once they arrive. Cut out different shapes from gray fabric and have guests iron them onto white onesies. You can even have mama-to-be guess which guest designed each onesie.
Your classic baby shower is sure to be beautiful with simple decor and a few fun activities.
Sweet Gifts for Baby
Because you don’t yet know the gender of the baby, it can be difficult for guest to choose gifts for the little one. Help them out by having each guest bring their favorite children’s book for baby. Books are wonderful gender neutral gifts. They take the guesswork out of what to buy and guess generally love to personalize their gifts and this is the perfect way to do that. Make sure they leave a little note inside the cover of the book explaining why it’s their favorite – reading those will be as fun as reading the book to your little one!
