Duck themed baby shower is perfect for couples who are keeping the gender of the baby a big secret. It is one of the cutest gender-neutral themes out there. Simply adding a touch of pink or blue to the decors will convey the gender of the baby for parents-to-be who already know the gender of their upcoming baby.

Rubber Duck Baby Shower Decorations
Creating a rubber duck-themed baby shower offers plenty of opportunities for adorable and playful decorations. The predominant color for the decorations for a duck themed baby shower is yellow.
