Two weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to style this beautiful Twinkle Twinkle Little Star gender neutral baby shower for one of my dearest friends. As I write this post today, she’s been discharged from the hospital after the arrival of a beautiful and healthy baby boy.
But, two weeks ago, we had no clue what she was having! I still don’t know how she was able to manage the uncertainty for the last nine months. I could never do that. But, it sure was a great pleasure to style the room with neutral touches of white, ivory, silver and gold, and break the mold of pinks and blues.
I would not take total credit for the styling of this stunning event, as it was a vision that the mom-to-be and her close friends had. I took their ideas and supplies, added my own personal touches, and executed it. It was
Below there is a detailed explanation of the decor. You will also be able to find a list of all the resources at the end of the post.

Table Settings for a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower
But don’t let those shiny and stunning table settings fool you… it is all shatterproof and disposable!
For centerpieces, the mom-to-be chose classic glass mason jars spray-painted in metallic gold, filled with baby’s breath. It’s amazing how the simplicity of these centerpieces add such an elegant touch to the tables.
I tied the napkins with handmade glittered stars napkin ties.
Wishes for the New Big Sister Table and Favors Table
Coming up with a comfortable table layout was a bit difficult. We needed to accommodate 24 guests and still have room for a candy bar, a ‘Wishes for the new big sister’ table, a table for the food buffet, an extra table for the favors, diaper cake, game cards, and presents. We moved those tables around several times. But we made it work!
A stack of glittered stars was cut and laid out for the guests to write wishes for the new big sister.
The framed artwork reads: “Wish they may wish they might, make a wish for the new big sister to read at night”
On the opposite corner, we set up a table for the diaper cake, favors, game cards, and pens.
Favors for a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower
One of my favorite touches was this silver tray holding the favors. The favors consisted of miniature handmade organic coconut soaps wrapped in a label that read: “From Jessica’s Shower to yours!”.
I slipped them inside ivory and gold organza bags and sprinkled them with miniature gold stars confetti. The confetti stuck to the soap and it actually looked like the soap came this way. Worked out perfect!
Candy Bar for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower
I wanted to leave the star (no pun intended! ) of this event for last. The candy bar was like a picture from Pinterest came to life, in the room.
The bummer for me -because I am still working on my photography skills- was having the light behind the candy bar, because it was hard to photograph. But, it all came together beautifully. I am not sure if I could recreate it one day. The room lends itself to this theme, as it is decorated with gold and ivory tones. The curtains served as the perfect background for the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star banner and star garlands, and I made a gold and white tassels banner that added the perfect amount of bling to the table.
We flanked each end of the table with tall glass cylinder vases filled with white carnations and baby’s breath. Sweets galore spread all over the table. Cupcakes, Sixlets, star-shaped lollipops, star-shaped rice Krispies treats, rock candy sticks, you name it. See for yourself!
Glittered star-shaped cupcake toppers, decorated the plain vanilla cupcakes which we sprinkled with edible gold powder.
Apothecary jars were filled with butter mints in gold wrappers, pretzels, and gold foiled chocolate balls.
I framed an original artwork reading ‘Sweet Treats’ (available at our shop for instant download), and centered it on the table.
The white porcelain tray holds white chocolate covered Oreos, topped with a gold star… Say no more.
