Take advantage of the cute teddy bear theme for the baby shower with the color scheme you’ll use for the decor and other party elements. Here are the best colors to use for the teddy bear baby shower. 

 

Classic pink or blue

If you’re having a baby boy or baby girl baby shower, you can never go wrong with the classic colors: blue or pink. They also apply nicely to the teddy bear theme. 

For example, a white teddy bear pairs nicely with different shades of pink, while a classic brown teddy bear would be a fantastic decor with light blue shades. You can also use pink or blue teddy bears as the focal points and centerpieces at the event. 

 

Neutrals

You can always use a neutral color palette for a classy teddy bear baby shower. Think of brown, tan, white, or even gray. 

They are perfect for the boho baby shower, where you can combine flowers and natural elements like burlaps with teddy bears around the venue. You can also use neutral colors on the balloons, banners, or backdrop. 

 

Yellow, white, and green
