But with so many choices, which theme to choose and where to start? Of course, one of the easiest places to start would be with the baby’s gender and the traditional pink and blue colors if the mom-to-be already knows what she has. But there are so many other kitschy and unique baby shower themes that everyone will love. Here are 20 ideas to get you started, including a little celebrity inspiration…

1. Blue Themed Baby Shower

It might be an obvious choice, but blue for a boy is still a popular theme for baby showers, and you can always customize it to make it your own. Create a stunning centerpiece with a balloon arch, opt for midnight blue or navy blue to change from baby blue, the choice is yours!
