When it comes time to planning a baby shower you might be feeling completely overwhelmed on how to decorate for it, especially if you need to decorate on a budget. 

Trust me, when I was pregnant with my first and living in China, I ended up needing to come home to The States much sooner than I had anticipated. I had to plan a move overseas, pack, and plan a baby shower before I went in just under 4 weeks. Talk about needing to do it quickly, easily and on a budget. I really didn’t have the time to brainstorm all sorts of cute theme ideas let alone afford everything to match the theme idea. 

So, what did I do? I kept it simple and basic, I used baby colors and baby related decorations. Here are some ideas you can ponder if you’re in a similar situation.

Baby Shower Colors For Boy

Most people think of the typical baby boy colors – blue and more blue. But a cool tip to make it more interesting is to find different shades of blue that you can use throughout the decor. This will spice it up a bit and can really compliment the look you’re going for. Or you can also add an accent color such as white, gray, or green. 

  • Blue – Different Shades of Blue 
  • Accent Colors 
  • White
  • Gray
  • Green

Here are some examples of what it could end up looking like.

This will spice it up a bit and can really compliment the look you’re going for. Or you can also add an accent color such as white or purple. 

  • Pink – Different Shades of Pink

Neutral Baby Shower Color Ideas

And yes the same goes for Neutral Color Baby Shower Decorations. Again, most people think greens and yellows for neutral colors but the cool thing about a neutral baby shower is, there is no rule book on what is really neutral. You could literally go with almost any other color other than blue and pink. 

For example, yes greens and yellows may be your typical go to for neutral, but you could also consider shades of browns, and grays. 

  • Greens
  • Yellows
  • Browns
  • Grays
  • Creams 
  • Oranges
