Choose a pastel color

Choose a pastel color such as pink, sky blue or lilac. Pairing your color with another light color such as white or chalk will look perfect. They’ll create a beautifully balanced setting. Pink with white and green with white are widely-used combinations. And when you’re browsing party items like cups or silverware, try going for pastel colors like pink or sky blue again because they’re the most popular options.

A variety of pastel colors

Using white with a rainbow of pastel colors will create a magical decor. To pull it off, use plenty of white throughout your decor to prevent it from looking too busy with colors. Pastel colors look perfect with white and are simply gorgeous. You can also create your decor with rainbows, marshmallows, and candy, all in pastel colors of course.

Mint is in

Mint green is very trendy these days and a top choice for baby shower decor. Pairing it with white or a light, natural color will refresh and tranquilize your setting. Try using a number of mint green and metallic white balloons together.

Gray and yellow

A combination of gray and various yellow tones will do an amazing job welcoming your guests to your party. Try to use a lighter gray and vary between different yellow tones that suit your decor elements. Try fitting in tones that range from highly saturated tones to pastels.

Pink and lilac

Pink and lilac meld very well together, allowing you to create all kinds of combinations. For example, try using a bunch of balloons together in your decor and alternate the colors. You can also try these colors on string pennants and table accessories.

Pink and sky blue with dark brown

Pink, sky blue and brown is also a great decor trend for baby showers. As you’re using these colors in your party decor, try to limit the brown in a single decor detail. Dark brown has a strong presence so you should use a majority of pink and sky blue to balance it out.
