Yay for one of the most fun parts of celebrating our pregnancy: the baby shower! Picking a baby shower theme is alway so much fun, and this Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower is a wonderful gender neutral theme to celebrate any parents to be. If you’re looking for some inspiration for a themed baby shower and help finding the perfect decorations, read on!
A new baby is headed this way, and it’s such a wonderful time to celebrate! When we found out that we were having a baby boy, I knew that I didn’t want a traditional “boy” baby shower. I wanted something a little more dreamy and fun. We love the night sky, and I loved the idea of having a baby shower that played into that, which is how we decided on a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower.

When I started thinking about what I wanted our baby shower to look like, I kept finding the same ideas for boys. They were so gender specific and just not at all what I was looking for. I wanted our baby shower to really feel like something the embodied our personalities: fun, silly and a little bit offbeat.
My husband and I love the night sky, and already knew that would play into our nursery plans. I was so excited when a friend pointed me in the direction of a twinkle twinkle little star shower for a girl. I was immediately struck by how we could make this into a baby shower for a boy with just a few easy tweaks.
This beautiful ombre cake was the centerpiece of our dessert table, and was inspired originally by a twinkle twinkle little star invitation I found while brainstorming ideas for this day. This kind of icing design would also be beautiful on simple cupcakes.
The gold stars that were added to it are perfect and truly made it pop! These star shapes would also look great on a diaper cake mixed with fun moon shapes too.
I immediately loved this twinkle twinkle little star theme, especially as it was a neutral baby shower theme idea. My husband and I are both slightly obsessed with the night sky, and this was a beyond perfect way to celebrate with our friends and family. Plus how can you go wrong with an ombre cake?? This Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower was perfect.
It’s such an easy and fun baby shower theme, and great for any time of the year! While it’s become a more popular theme idea idea (our baby shower was in 2018), what I still love about this idea is that it’s so easy to customize.

Even though I might not have been able to drink, I wanted to be sure my guests still could partake. How cute is this creative “Mommy & Daddy Drink Bar”? Whiskey and gingers for the dads, and of course a solid mimosa/”MOMosa” offering for the ladies. Chalkboards also make for great editable welcome signs, too.

Below are a few more photos from my own baby shower! The personal touch was a wonderful way to help us feel extra special as new parents.
Such a Fun and Easily Customizable Baby Shower Theme
While we loved this twinkle twinkle little star baby shower idea because it was gender neutral, this is also such an easy theme to customize more for either gender. I’ve seen some gorgeous ideas to make this into a rose gold baby girl shower, and others that focus heavily on the blue twinkle little star baby shower decor instead.
This was such a great baby shower theme for our little one, and I’m glad that we made it our own. Whatever you choose to do, this baby shower idea is sure to make this day feel extra special in so many ways.
