So that it does not become multicolored, a topic or motto should be selected. If the sex of the baby is already known, you can also keep the decoration in pink or blue. Or you can choose a completely different color, for example a fresh lemon yellow. Whatever the decision is, it looks especially great if the interior design and also the food and drinks are uniform.
