A very cute theme for a baby shower is “Queen of the Jungle.” In this theme, the focus is a jungle setting with your mom as the reigning Queen. You can use this theme if the mom to be is having a girl, of course because you can use pinks. You can tweak it any way you like and it will be just as adorable. Some jungle baby shower party hosts like to make everything in primary colors, and others choose to go with a pink or a blue accent. It’s up to you.
There are some lovely and festive paper goods available in a Queen of the Jungle theme. They feature a pink tiger and brown accents. Pinks and browns are a really nice choice because they coordinate well with everything. Order up a set of the themed paper plates, cups, napkins and table cover and you’ve got half your décor done already.
See if you can have the shower outside. You’ll be able to do more with the theme. You can bring in large potted trees and twirl strings of lights around them. Go jungle with giant leaves from a craft store. Hang rope vines and have stuffed monkeys swinging from them. Add in lions and tigers in cutouts or as stuffed toys. But even if you’re inside, you can accomplish the same jungle look.
You’ll of course need to give the Queen a crown. Make her one out of paper or get her a tiara from a dollar store or party shop. For fun you can make her a cape in a fun leopard print to throw over her shoulders.
If you want, have everyone come in safari gear like shorts or khakis and give out plastic safari hats (that you can find in a party shop). Have binoculars out on the tables.
