The modern rule of thumb when it comes to a baby boy shower color scheme is that anything goes. If you choose a sports theme, the team colors are the way to go. Farming themes in classic John Deere green will beat powder blue any day. Pastel blue is classic and traditional and many feel anything else is a letdown. If you feel the need to take this route, add some other colors into the mix to jazz it up a bit.
