To create this special occasion, all you need are a few simple ideas and someone you trust to keep your secret until the moment of the reveal. Decorate your space with blue mustaches and pink lips and ask guests cast their predictions on a DIY voting board.

2. Sip and See Shower

A “Sip and See” is a new way for mothers to skip a baby shower and opt for a relaxed gathering after the baby is born. Guests can meet the baby and offer their congratulations to the new parents.

3. Rustic Baby Shower

Want a nature-inspired shower? Rustic-themed celebrations are trendy and great for any time of year. Create a beautiful rustic baby shower in a pink, gray and sage green palette or switch up colors if it’s for a baby boy.
