Hosting a Celestial-Themed Baby Shower for Your Little Star
There are so many wonderful options for baby shower themes these days. I love the idea of a celestial theme because it’s gender-neutral for families who aren’t finding out if their little one is a girl or a boy, and also because it allows you to stray from typical baby decor.
Check out what I’ve come up with for a beautiful event that celebrates the soon-to-be bright star of your life!
