2. Apple of our Eyes

Great neutral baby shower theme, featuring apples of course! There will be enough left for an apple pie once it’s all over! Great theme for a limited budget party. By

The set may look very elaborate but it’s totally up to you how far you want to extend your look and your pocket, of course. This theme only shows how much you can do with only a certain number of elements and at the same time, you can go all out without having to try to find your wits in the midst of all the different elements.

The green and brown make a perfect neutral motif for either a boy or a girl. If you don’t want a gender reveal during your baby shower, this a great way to go.

6. Game of Thrones

This may be the coolest baby shower theme we’ve seen in a long time! Take a bit more effort to pull it off, but it will be well worth it!

I am a die-hard GOT fan and I would not even mind dressing up as the Mother of Dragons and have my husband dress like Khal Drogo for this event. It might seem dorky but who cares?! Its Game of Thrones!

Your food choices are also through the roof! Imagine pretzels as sticks and crushed Oreos as dirt. You just gotta get creative!


10. Baby’s First Library

Build your baby’s first library at your baby shower. Ask guests to bring a baby book, add a few words of wisdom for the baby. You can also try some games involving books – trivia and similar.

By the end of the shower, you’d have a mini library to plan on building. Your food, decors, and giveaways can be centered around your favorite children’s books. Also, you can send out a book list with your invites so your guests would know what books you’re looking for!
