Cute as a Button Baby Shower

Gather your friends and family to shower the mama-to-be before her cute-as-a-button baby arrives. This baby shower theme is perfect for a baby boy or girl -- Use a neutral color palette if the gender will be a surprise, or opt for blue & green or pink & yellow palettes.
