Baby Shower Color Themes
Pastel colors are generally associated with newborns. But what colors do you use, and what on earth could you possibly pair them with? Here's a list of colors that work well for baby shower invitations.
Powder Pink: Light, dusty pinks are generally used when the baby is going to be a girl. This is often themed with tea sets, dollies, and flowers in similar color schemes. Pinks pair well with whites and off whites (ivory, bone, etc etc) when designing color schemes for both the invitations and the party itself.
Baby Blue: Light, bright blues are used when the baby is expected to be a boy. Themed with rubber balls, toy trucks and tools, and stuffed animals drives home the "It's a Boy" theme! Blue also works well with whites and off-whites, but will also pair with pale greens.
Lavender: Lavender is often thought of as a neutral color or slightly feminine color, which works well if you're unsure of the baby's gender (or if you just really like the color purple!) Lavender pairs well with pale greens, yellows, whites and off whites. Good themes for a purple color include flowers, toys, or simple abstract themes.
Mint Green: Another gender-neutral color, mint greens and other pale greens can easily play the role of either masculine or feminine. If you're looking for it to be a little more boyish, go ahead and make it a jungle theme with cute cartoon animals, or froggy themed if you're looking to narrow the theme down even more. Girlish? Simply use the green to make flowers in shades of pink, yellow, and purple pop against it!
Pale/Lemon Drop Yellow: This is what I personally consider the most gender neutral color. Pale yellows will pair easily with almost any other color, and most themes will work easily with it. This also opens up the possibility of a duckling theme which will easily work for both girls or boys!
