Deciding on a Jungle Baby Shower

If you want to create a baby shower that everyone will remember and the mom-to-be will be overjoyed with, then you want to use a jungle theme. A jungle theme consists of baby lions, tigers, monkeys, and more. These jungle animals look adorable and can be placed on everything from the invitations to the cake.

Jungle-Themed Invitations

There are several different ways to find the invitations you like the best. The main goal for the invitations is to display the jungle theme and to send out the time, date, and place of the baby shower as well as who the shower will be given for. Jungle themed invitations are usually a minimal expense.

There are three ways to get the
jungle baby shower theme
invitations: handmade invitations, over-the-counter invitations, or ordering the invitations online.

If you search through your local store, you may find the simple invitations that have the jungle theme however, you may run into problems like they may not have enough for your party, they may not have the jungle theme, or they may not have the jungle theme that you want. You may search online to find the right invitations however, the choices may be too overwhelming and you may not be able to find what you are looking for.

There is always the option to customize the invitations if you can find the jungle theme that you like. To make your own invitations you simply need to purchase plain white card stock and the rubber stamps that display the animals you like the best. You could do a leaf border around the invitation and stamp a lion on the front. Come up with a special way to invite everyone to the celebration.

Of course, you'll have to follow up the party with some cute jungle themed Thank You cards. You can do the same with these, make them yourself or purchase them online or in-store. Either way, it is a great way to incorporate your theme and

Jungle-Themed Decorations

Every party needs decorations and a baby shower is not exception to that rule. You can decorate the party in so many different ways to create a jungle theme that everyone will love. For example, if the mother-to-be is going to be the “Queen of the Jungle” then you need to create her “throne” to sit on. You can do this by using streamers and animal shaped balloons.

The colors could be jungle colors like green, brown, and throw in some pink as well. You could have party paper leading up to her throne for her to walk on. Be creative with her throne by placing a jungle baby animal mobile on the chair. Purchase a CD with jungle songs (for example, The Lion King) that will play in the background. Later on, you can use this jungle music to play one of the games.

You want to create the jungle look throughout the room. You need to have a few hanging streamers from the ceiling to look like vines. To create this look, you need to take three streamers, green, brown, and black, then twist them from the top to the bottom. Tape them up at the bottom so they do not become unraveled.

All jungles have green trees and leaves hanging everywhere. You can create this look by using real tree branches to hang up above the party. You can also use artificial palm trees or Ficus if you have any.

Finish up the decor with stuffed jungle animals. These are fairly inexpensive and can be given to the mother-to-be when the party is over to decorate the nursery. You can order them in bulk from several online stores and they do not cost a lot of money. If you don’t want to use stuffed animals you can use cut-outs instead. These are usually found at craft stores or you can download the template and cut them out.

Have Fun!

Do some research online and find some unique cake designs (or cupcakes) that would fit wonderfully! One example for cupcakes would be leopard print or zebra print. With some creativity and imagination, your baby shower will turn out just great! The photo here even shows a jungle cookie bouquet welcoming the new baby. If ever you're at a loss for ideas, use Disney movies as inspiration for your wild baby shower!
