Idea One – Jungle Theme
A jungle theme is perfect for a baby shower that features elephants. Imagine an entire room of plants, palms, and tropical foliage that set the mood for this safari-themed party with plush green grass underfoot.
There are many ways to represent the wild with this theme. You can make animal masks out of paper mache or paint them on canvas to hang from the ceiling. You can also string up paper lanterns for festive lighting.
Another option would be to create a photo backdrop using green fabric and wire-framed animals in various poses, like an elephant family.
To give your guests something to take home with them, you could offer custom photo prints of their pictures in front of your animal backdrop or write personalized messages on these prints with markers.
Idea Two – Safari Theme
The Safari theme is a perfect way to bring the animal kingdom to life. A safari party has been done before, but it can be done in a new and innovative way. The safari is full of majestic animals from Africa, so why not create a jungle-themed party?
The jungle theme would have a giraffe, lion, and tiger as the animal decorations. Apart from being entertaining for children, this type of theme will also appeal to adults. The most popular items for this theme would be the jungle print fabric that’s used for decorating and fabric popcorn bags that guests can take home with them.
Idea Three – Circus Party Theme
A circus theme would be perfect for your baby shower elephant party. This is an idea that has not been done before and it’s sure to be a hit! The circus was always one of the most popular parties for children, so why not do it for adults too?
What you’ll need:
-Tent to set up in your living room or backyard
-Circus clowns to shake things up
-A variety of animal balloons
-Balloon decorations, like giraffes, tigers, lions, etc.
-A few games with prizes—you could set out a game where people guess the weight of an object (like a large ball) by leaning back on a scale or picking up objects (balloons) to see how much they weigh. The person who guesses the closest without going over wins!
For food, prepare some easy finger foods like sandwiches, chips and dip, popcorn with caramel drizzle, and even cotton candy. You can also make these cute elephant-shaped cookies if you’re feeling extra creative! They will be the talk of the party.
Idea Four – Dumbo Themed Party
No, you’re not dreaming. This party theme is based on the hit movie “Dumbo.”
It’s a great idea because it’s famous, and people will always associate elephants with the movie no matter how old it is.
There are plenty of ideas for entertainment at this party. You could have guests fly into the room on an inflatable elephant or even work their way around a circus ring to see all the animals. You can also plan games like pin-the-tail-on-the-elephant or elephant charades.
Some other dessert options for this party might include chocolate-dipped bananas, peanut brittle, and vanilla ice cream shaped like an elephant.
Idea Five – Jungle Book Themed Party.
Instead of King Louie, invite King Mowgli to your party. Mowgli is the only human character in the movie and he will be able to mix around with all the party guests.
First, set up a “jungle” theme. It can be anywhere from furniture to table decor—the jungle is your oyster!
Second, get ready for some fun food items that are featured in Jungle Book. The menu should include King Louie’s favorite dish (banana fritters), Roquefort cheese, honeycomb bread, and bean soup.
Finally, make sure you have plenty of photo ops during the party! Put framed pictures of Mowgli on your walls or take pictures with him at different points in the house or backyard!
