Boy and girl baby shower theme ideas for the sophisticated mum-to-be

Whether it’s a classy high tea gender reveal or a fun glamping baby shower, we’re all for OTT celebrations for the expected arrival of a bub!

If you’ve been given the honour of hosting a baby shower for your best friend, sister, or work colleague, you’ve come to the right place for advice and inspiration. We’ve got first-hand knowledge on how to throw a baby shower, as our very own Founding Director very recently had a new addition to her beautiful family last month!

However, before you choose the desserts, invitations and decorations, you might want to pick a baby shower theme. While not everyone chooses to do this, themes can help tie together all the different elements of the day.

We’ve seen some pretty amazing modern baby shower themes over the years, so we’re sharing with you our faves...

Gender reveal baby shower themes

Want to keep ‘em guessing? Use the element of surprise at your baby shower with a gender reveal. It’s also a great way to keep your theme gender-neutral, right up until the last minute!

  • Pastel
  • Hot air balloon
  • All-white
  • Alphabet
  • Dr. Seuss
  • Sweet as can bee
  • Monochrome
  • Tropical
