Your DIY Multicolor, Gender Neutral Baby Shower Guide is Here

My closest friends are starting to get married and beginning to have BABIES! And I’m totally okay with being deemed the go-to “Ms. Party Planner” for events that go hand-in-hand with said events. When my very best friend told me she was going to be bringing her very first child into this world (ie. the BEST news ever), I was ecstatic, tears ensued and I couldn’t believe what an unbelievable blessing God had given her and her family. There was only one teeney-weeney, itsy bitsy problem for this obsessive planner. She was going to keep the gender a surprise! As much as I totally understand waiting to find out the gender is truly a once-in-a-lifetime surprise which pales in comparison to any other surprise in this world, it makes planning (FOR ME) a bit of a challenge! With wanting to plan everything down to a T and wanting to make everything perfect for the mommy-to-be, I accepted the challenge and came up with a gender neutral bright and fun multi-colored theme for the baby boy or girl en route! SO! If you’re like me and need a little bit of inspiration for your gender-neutral baby shower, here is what I did!

To make things super easy? Everything that I used can be ordered with a click of a button from Amazon!


The Room

In order to bring my own style and vision to life, the space will need rehabbing. How can I transform a non aesthetically pleasing space, is the first thing I think about when I begin my planning. If it’s a large space, there will be lots of guests and you want them to have a lasting first impression. What I focus on the most is how to distract from the ceiling. Since it’s one of the main focal points of any room, it’s the biggest culprit of making a venue look empty. [Disclaimer-I wasn’t allowed to hang anything from any of the walls or ceilings, so I had to get creative!]

Candy Bar

Candy bars never get old, they double extra color and decor, AND they triple double as DIY favors for your guests (and by that, I mean, THEY get to do-it-themselves). Ensure you have a wide range of sizes, heights and shapes of apothecary jars and buy enough candy to fill them. I guarantee they won’t eat it all, but it certainly looks better when they’re all full!

Apothecary Jars

Candy: Rock Candy | Candy Dots | Mini M&Ms | Jelly Bellies | Chupa Pops | Pixie Stix | Laffy Taffy

Photo Booth Backdrop

Giving people a designated space for selfies and pictures to remember the momentous occasion is a great way to add more color and decoration. All you need to do is cut long pieces of bright colored streamers and tie each piece in a knot on a piece of rope. [There was a rolling easel at the location where I tacked the rope onto. If you’re not as lucky, hang it on a wall if you’re allowed.]
