Jungle Baby Shower Food


There was no monkey business involved when the host of this baby shower planned such a beautiful spread. Every detail, as shown on Amy Atlis' Sweet Designs Blog reminds one of the wild.

You see lots of green in this photo. Salads are a great main dish for a safari spread, as they are food of the jungle. Appetizers wrapped with large leaves, like the ones shown above, make for a nice presentation. Using green napkins, decorated toothpicks, and even leaf cut-outs as place mats for the food gives the table a outdoors feel. Adorable paper food signs, brown wrapped food stands, grass and tropical food dish names are additional fun touches.

Safari Baby Shower Decorations


This idea by Kindra of At Home with Kindra is brilliant. She displayed baby pictures of the soon to be new mom and dad on crepe paper paper and attached them to some scrapbook paper. This is such a warm and personal way to decorate. She didn't break the bank with the materials either.

Safari Favors


Finding or making jungle baby shower favors is very easy. While there are many products available online, many baby shower hosts opt for making homemade baked goods and decorating them with jungle theme ribbon.

Jungle Baby Shower Food - Snake Sub


A silly safari snake submarine sandwich is sure to be a hit. Heather from Chickabug writes that the sandwich was made by Jimmy Johns. However if you wish to make your own, you can shape the bread dough to curve. You can also use a standard long submarine sandwich bun and cut it in small sections, then form it into an S shape.

Jungle Safari Baby Shower


You know that you have walked into a jungle safari baby shower when you see this wonderful dessert table. From the majestic giraffe on the cake to the animal print printables, this party by Honeycomb Events most certainly made the guests go wild.

Jungle Cupcakes

It is always a bonus when your food adds to the theme of your party. These cupcakes are cute and delicious.

Safari Room Decorations

Remind your guests that it's a jungle out there and inside too with these cute mini stuffed animals, balloons, lanterns and goodie bags.

Jungle Baby Shower Ideas - Safari Pudding Cups


If you are looking for great jungle baby shower ideas, Brittany of Grey Grey Designs has lots of them. She created these wonderful safari pudding cups with a little animal print crepe paper on the spoons. The scrap book paper on the bottom of the plate is also a nice addition.


Safari Baby Shower Invitations

Sending Printed jungle animal invitations are an easy way to let your guest know all of the details about the shower. Be sure to proofread all of the information carefully and include the following:

Type of Event: (Baby Shower)

Guest of Honor

Date and Day of the Week



RSVP Instructions

Registry Invitations (optional)

Food: Be sure to let guests know if they are coming for brunch, lunch, dinner, snacks, etc.

Free Baby Shower Printables - Safari Theme


I love free ways to decorate and these cute free baby shower printables quite the discovery. Elegant and super cute, they were created by the Ellinée Design. The sticker sheet, water bottle labels, welcome sign, topper and flags, and pennants/buntings are downloadable and free.

Jungle Favors Spotted: Animals with stripes, trunks and opposable thumbs all in one. This candle set happens to be my favorite safari favor because you can use individual animals as decorations as well as guest gifts.

Safari Baby Shower Decoration - Cupcake Tower with Leaf Prints


Aren't these cupcakes amazing? Jesse from created this wonderful decoration. I love how she wrapped each level of the tower with brown paper and stamped leaf prints on top of them. She also made leaf prints for the runner that went along the dessert table. If you are wondering, the animal print initial "I" is for the new baby's first name.

Safari Baby Shower Decorations - Animal Print Cones


It amazes me how such simple products, like animal print scrap book paper can make a huge contribution to a theme baby shower. It is great for storing and displaying treats or baby shower favors. Jessy from came up with this inspired idea.

Blue Safari Baby Shower


This modern blue safari baby shower table, by Chris of Celebrations At Home shows you that you can do more with less.

Safari Baby Shower Sandwich


This safari baby shower tiger sandwich from Little Food Junction, will satisfy your guests' fierce hunger after a long morning of visiting. Bread, cheese, cucumbers, black and green olives, and carrots make up this tasty treat. You could also make this for your kids so that they have a fun way to get raw veggies.

Jungle Shower Favors Boxes


Jungle Shower very well inside these cute boxes.


Jungle Baby Shower Decorations

Animal prints are everywhere. I found some cute towels and bins at Target that would be fitting for a safari baby shower. Washcloths and towels can be used as hot pads for bowls of food.

Place any tall potted plants you have inside of these plastic bins. After the shower is over, your guests will want to take them home. I couldn't believe the price was only $3.99 each. You might also find some jungle print items within the dollar bins at Target or at your local dollar store.

Safari Animal Fabric

Animal print fabric are ideal as table decorations. Safari baby shower planners have used it for:


*Wrapping for pots with plants

*Bases on which to place food
