    Sounds cute overall! Maybe find a way to incorporate some more colors (so they don’t get entirely green gifts)? I recently attended a gender-neutral baby shower, and their “theme” colors were green and beige. To be honest, I could have done without the beige. But what about bringing in yellow (for the stars?) so they could have some bright colors too!

    I think you are on to something. I do agree with Gemstone on bringing in colors. Just because the theme is gender neutral, you don’t have to stop at green and / or beige. If you pick out the right shades of blue or other colors you will find they be just as gender neutral.

    Let us know what you come up with.

    I don’t know much about my shower but I did request a Candyland theme and that was when I didn’t know the gender. I thought it was great because my hostesses can incorporate many colors without swaying towards one gender.

    Yellow and green are generally considered the gender neutral colors.

    Maybe a diaper cake in yellow, or with yellow star accents and a bear on top?

    Jungle themes are pretty easy to go with for gender neutral, because you have yellow lions and giraffes, and black and white zebras, and grey elephants and hippos.  Mostly everything in a jungle theme is a gender neutral color.

    But the bear thing is cute!  And it’s gender neutral I think.

    With all the thought you are putting into this, I’m sure it’s going to turn out great!

    I love the baby green / yellow combo.. so cute!  And you could really do a lot with the “wish upon a star” theme.  I think classic teddy bears would be cute.. or you could throw in a story book animal like..

    The Velveteen Rabbit, Classic Pooh, Peter Rabbit, Mother Goose, Corduroy, Paddington, Curious George, Guess How Much I Love You, etc..

    I’m in love with the “Guess How Much I Love You” Bunnies, but since you are planning teddy bears I think Paddington or Corduroy would be super cute too 🙂  Also, kids books are a great shower gift and could be used as decor.
