Baby Shower Decoration Ideas for Unknown Gender /Unisex

What if the parents want to be surprised and not know the gender of the baby?  You might think this might complicate things for you, but actually you might have even more themes to choose from.  This list of baby shower themes.  The best thing is to organize this celebration with a neutral theme that can go well with both the genders – maybe brown and white (burlap decorations).  One simple theme is the “Gender Reveal” – boy or girl? And with this question, you can make a baby shower game for the guests to guess the baby’s gender (they can also guess what day it will be born, what time: morning, afternoon or night, what will the baby’s name be if girl or boy, etc).


Party Decorating Ideas – Best Value for Your Money

One of the most important things that you should keep in mind is cost and where to find the best deals and best quality for the decorations. The party decorations for a baby shower should be tailored to the theme, gender and obviously your budget.  You can save on decorations and favor costs if you make them yourself, but be careful for them not look ‘tacky’ or cheap.  You don’t want for the guest to say: “I can’t believe she bought them from the dollar store”.  If you are crafty this might work, but if you are not, then there is a possibility that it will not turn out the way you want them to.

Decorating a baby shower is also about food. As the candy bar will be probably the main attraction.  You can save by baking cupcakes, cookies and even a beautiful cake.

Last tip for saving money on decorations is to buy in bulk such as Kisses Milk Chocolates in bulk.  Just like food, when you buy in bulk, it is cheaper.  Also you can find deals and specials online.
