baby shower decor: Setting up the jungle

Whether you opt to host your safari themed baby shower outdoors or keep it inside, plants can be your biggest asset!

Adding greenery to the baby shower decor, sets the tone for a warm and inviting event.

Once you have lined up some plants around your venue, further the green tone with leafy garlands and palm leaves hanging all around.

Straw grass table skirts could work for your food table as well as any drinks and gift tables you plan to set up.

Green, gold and black balloons could work for a more subtle décor while cheetah, leopard and zebra printed balloons would be great if you want to go all out with the safari themed baby shower.

Animal Print Decorations
- Decorate the venue with animal print balloons, tablecloths, and banners. Incorporate shades of green, brown, and tan to mimic the jungle environment.

For centerpieces you could use wild flowers in slim glass vases or  use stuffed animals that could later be used for the baby’s nursery.

Your safari themed baby shower can’t be complete without a table full of delicious food.

For easy starters and finger foods, you could make pretzel sticks coated in orange and brown chocolate to create tiger stripes - or dark brown and white chocolate to create zebra stripes.

You could also make striped chocolate brownies to look like  zebra cakes. 

Hummus dip with thin strips of colorful peppers and pineapple chunks on skewers would look so cute, while animal crackers and trail mix could be a fun options for snacks.

Spinach tortilla wraps, made with cream cheese, lettuce, cheese and deli meats served on a rustic wood board would be perfect for a jungle baby shower.

For dessert, you could offer a simple, traditional baby shower cake with a few sprigs of greenery on it to give the cake a jungle feel. Or you could go all out and add mini jungle animals made from fondant.

Line food serving trays with large palm or bamboo leaves.

Animal faced cake pops, cupcakes with green and orange frosting, safari-themed cookies and a platter full of colorful fruits would complete the food table.

Tropical fruit drinks and a fun Mom-Osa bar would add a fun element to the shower - and doesn't require much work to maintain. Simply have 2-3 juice options, champagne, fresh fruits, and cute glasses.

For the cake, you can opt for a colorful safari theme with wild animals adoring multiple layers or you could opt for a more subtle single layered cake with palm leaves around the edging.
