I’ve only ever thrown one baby shower in my entire life and it was a gender-neutral party. So basically, I’m a gender neutral shower professional if you will.

Rule number one from my veteran history. Use allllll the colors!

Which is exactly what we’re doing with these 5 DIY gender neutral baby shower ideas and some LINDOR truffles.

You just can’t go wrong with truffles and a splash of color, but especially not when it comes to being almost seven months pregnant and wanting an excuse to notice something in the room besides your expanding… everything.

Trust me, I speak from experience here.

Double bonus: these are all easy-peasy to recreate, so no need to sweat the pretty details when it comes to hosting your next shower.

And we’ve covered all of the staple truffle flavors, so there’s a little something for everyone: traditional Milk, Mint, White, Stracciatella, Mangoes & Cream, Orange, Strawberries and Cream, Citrus, Coconut, Raspberry, Sea Salt, and your Fall favorite, Pumpkin Spice…

1 — Rainbow Truffle Raffle

There are literally very few things in this world as satisfying as seeing a gold raffle drum filled with LINDOR truffles.

I pretty much died and went to heaven the second this baby came to live at the studio, and it’s SURE to be the talk of your party!

Fill it and display it with a stack of cute favor bags or containers for an easy take-away that makes a statement.

2 — Make Your Own Truffle Bag Dessert Bar

Of course, if owning your own gold raffle drum year-round isn’t your thing, you can always go the colorful truffle bag dessert bar route.

I thought these clear scalloped candy containers were super cute!

Pair them with a fun hanging party installation, and you almost don’t need anything else! Besides food, of course.

Let us not forget there are pregnant women involved.
