Decorate for a Gender-Neutral Baby Shower

Decorate for a Gender-Neutral Baby ShowerWhether the mother-to-be doesn’t know the sex of her child or is keeping the ultrasound results a secret, choosing gender-neutral decorations for a baby shower can sometimes prove challenging. But with a little creativity, you can easily put together a table that looks chic and doesn’t rely on a palette of tired yellows and greens. Hang a festive garland above a table set with a mod teapot and candlesticks, whose geometric shapes and bold colors emulate children’s toys. A coterie of colorful birds makes a storybook-like centerpiece, while Chicago-themed burp cloths can catch guests’ stray crumbs before the baby arrives to wear them out.
