Wildly Adorable Jungle Baby Shower Ideas

Plan the perfect celebration with this collection of jungle baby shower ideas.


If you are planning a baby shower and want to assure maximum cuteness then a jungle theme party is the perfect way to go. The jungle has always been a source of inspiration for everything baby related – from nursery décor to baby clothes to plush toys. There is no better way to celebrate the coming of a new baby-cub than with a jungle baby shower!

A jungle theme party is ideal for anyone who loves wildlife. Amazing yet adorable, animals like lions, giraffes and elephants make great subjects to feature in all party decor.

When it comes to colors and accents, this theme has endless options to choose from. Large palm leaves, playful baby animals and incorporating a large letter of the baby’s initials to the backdrop are all wonderful ideas.

Jungle Baby Shower Invitations

Picking out the perfect baby shower invitation will be the beginning of curating the look and feel of the party. Jungle themed invites come with precious baby animals, fun colors and accents that can help you settle on a color-scheme and any special details for the baby shower. Plus, they are appropriate for baby girls, boys or even when the sex is being kept secret for a surprise once the baby is born. The invitation will also inspire guests to come up with some wild gift wrapping ideas or opt for baby gifts that go with the party theme.

Baby Shower Invitations

Jungle Baby Shower Centerpieces

A jungle themed baby shower goes hand-in-hand with wild baby animals and shiny big leaves, ideal items to decorate your tables with. Table centerpieces can become a focal point for your guests, so think about what would create that type of experience. Make a great impression with personalized glass jars as centerpieces and consider engraving a sweet baby lullaby quote or the baby’s initials.

You can fill each jar with lush green leaves and incorporate an animal figurine. Tree branches would make a stunning arrangement, add some moss and bark pieces to serve as a base. You can also fill it with fun snacks like animal crackers or animal gummies.

A centerpiece raffle amongst the guests at each table would be something fun to incorporate into the party activities!

Jungle Theme Baby Decorations

Incorporating the jungle theme into other party areas will bring cohesiveness to every corner of the party. Think about the gift, cake and food table decorations. Bring the jungle centerpiece ideas into those areas by decorating with vases arranged in a similar fashion.

Enhance the décor in these areas by placing metallic big-cat figurines and baby animal plush toys. Consider creating a basket of rolled up onesies and baby socks in colors that go with the theme. Add a selection of wall art pieces, like charming canvas art of sweet jungle baby animals to finish the look. All these items would make fantastic take-home gifts for the parents-to-be!

Jungle Baby Shower Food Ideas

Baby shower food can range from a sit-down meal to an array of heavy appetizers, finger foods and desserts. Whatever you decide on will depend on the party’s time of day, location and budget. Add a jungle themed placemat to tie in your dessert and appetizer table. Here are some ideas for your party menu that you can serve at a jungle baby shower:

  • Lion cake pops
  • Oven baked brie drizzled with honey
  • Chicken Skewers with dipping sauce
  • Almond-bacon cheese crostini
  • Hummus with fresh cut veggies
  • Mini turkey meatballs
  • Stuffed mushrooms
  • Dried apricots with walnuts, cashews and almonds
  • Charcuterie Board
  • Prosciutto-wrapped breadsticks
  • Self-serve popcorn bar
  • Jungle mini-animal cracker cookies
  • White chocolate covered cookies with gold animal crackers

Also, give some thought to what beverage options you will offer. Along with soft drinks, iced teas and sparkling water consider coming up with a fun non-alcoholic signature “mocktail” to serve throughout the party – this surely will add something extra fun to the festivity!

Bring the theme and color scheme into the serving presentation of the day’s food and beverage menu. Wooden bowls, boards, plates and utensils would be perfect for a jungle shower. Serving platters in the form of large tropical leaves will definitely add a special touch. Adding leaves or cinnamon sticks to beverages should be a complementary addition.

Jungle Theme Baby Shower Cake And Dessert Ideas

The cake table is where you can really get creative. This is the perfect opportunity to forgo the traditional route by stacking an array of glazed donuts, cupcakes or mini-crèmes bruleés on a tiered cake stand. Decorate with small leaves, twigs and mini-animals. Add plates at the bottom of jungle themed cookies or macarons to delight your guests.

If traditional is more your style, a jungle themed cake will provide an additional dose of cuteness to the entire celebration. Whether you order the cake at a bakery or do it yourself, the décor ideas are abundant. Setting a branch with a few leaves and an elegant animal figurine as a topper to a naked cake is always an option – a simple yet very chic way to decorate the cake yourself!

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!  Get your guests into the groove of the jungle boogie in this fun, jungle theme baby shower!

Whether it is a little Tarzan of Jane on the way, this gender-neutral theme is perfect way to celebrate the upcoming birth of any bundle of joy.


One of the first things you need to think about is invitations.  Make that guest list and prepare to send them out because that baby shower date will certainly sneak up on you!

Before you swing on down to the store, try shopping online for invitations.  It may shock you that you can actually buy personalized invitations for the same price or cheaper than the fill-in-the-blank invites at the store!

Take these sweet, jungle theme invites from LeeLaaLoo on Etsy; for only $12.00, you receive a digital file that is customized for your event which means you can  make as many prints as you want!  If that doesn’t make you screech, I don’t know what will!

Special thanks to our friends at LeeLaaLoo.com for this adorable design!


How do you recreate a jungle environment?  Lots of green foliage and animal prints, that’s how!  As for color scheme, green and brown work very well, along with any other colors you wish to utilize; the jungle is a very colorful place!

Have fun with the jungle theme baby shower decorations, and if you need some ideas, here is a few to help you along:

  • Green and brown yarn, ropes, and tulle:  Swag these all around the room, across the ceiling from wall to wall to give the appearance of the jungle canopy.

  • Jungle sounds music:  To really add to the jungle ambiance of the shower, have a hidden speaker somewhere that is constantly playing the sounds of the jungle.  It may not be a decoration to look at, but it will do wonders for the theme!

  • Jungle animals and critters:  Monkeys, zebras, lions, tigers, giraffes, birds, snakes and so many more!  These guys should be all around the room in a manner that you would find them in the jungle:  birds flying or in trees, monkeys swinging on vines, and so on.


Food at a baby shower is an ultimate pleaser for everyone there, whether they want to admit it or not!  Try these ultimate jungle teasers and pleasers to drive the appetites of your guests bananas:

  • Snake subs:  Have party subs made with a twist, literally!  Have the breads made in a way that they are shaped like an “s” or just curved around in a “u.”  Decorate one end to look like a snake face using toothpicks to pin on two black olives for the eyes, and cutting a bell pepper to look like a snake tongue.  Give it a jungle name like a “Ham ssssssandwich”

  • Jungle kabobs:  Your guests will want to sink their teeth into these sweet, fruity treats!  Place jungle fruits such as pineapple, banana and star fruit onto kabobs and viola!  An easy shower snack!

  • Banana bonanza pudding:  Layer banana pudding and cool whip in individual cups.  Top them off with 3 vanilla wafers and a cute, jungle themed spoon, and watch your guests dig in!

  • Jungle juice:  Every baby shower needs a themed drink, so why not serve up some limeade with fresh lime slices, a splash of sprite or ginger ale, and a scoop of a fruity sherbet!


You cannot have a baby shower without a few games!  You could always have the typical baby shower games such as the word scramble or word searches, but for a jungle theme baby shower, your guests should be up and monkeying around!

Give these games a try:

  • Guessing game:  Fill a jar with banana candy, be sure to have a monkey on guard!  Each shower guest gets one guess, and whoever guesses the number closest without going over is the winner of the monkey and jar of candy!  Make it trickier by filling it with runts, but having the guests still only guess the number of bananas in the mix!

  • Tiger Tails:  Much like pin the tail on the donkey, but this time you’re pinning a tail on a tiger! Grrr!

  • Monkey see, monkey do:  Everyone stands in a circle.  Starting with the mama-to-be, she signals an action, no matter how goofy and points to the person who is to copy it, and this continues from person to person, no specific order.  Everyone better be paying attention because if you get the action wrong, you’re out.  Last monkey standing, wins!


At the end of the shower, send your party animals home with something they’ll love!  Sweet treats such as cupcakes and cookies will surely keep the jungle fever (or sugar high) going for hours after the shower!

Not only is handing out favors a smooth way to signal the end of the baby shower, but it is a totally necessary way to say “thank you for hanging with us!”

Children's BIRTHDAY in SAFARI / JUNGLE style. Ideas for organizing, decorating, festive table


All photos used in this post are freely available from the Internet. I do not claim authorship.


“Children's birthday in the style of safari/jungle”

color scheme of the festival in the style of safari/jungle:

1. Attributics/accessories for creating thematic DRD 9000

depending on that , whether there will be a bias on the JUNGLE theme or on the SAFARI theme, there will be different accessories. For example, invited guests can be in the role of the animals themselves, or they can be in the role of tourists who came on a safari.

But there are a number of accessories that are necessary regardless of the specifics of the topic:

This is where houseplants come in handy, especially green (not flowering) in the form of palm trees, and ficuses and other things will do, the main thing is that plants create a feeling of nature.

I really liked the idea of ​​decorating flower pots to give them a natural style. You will need dry branches, rope / twine. Below is a small workshop in photographs:

In addition to real greenery, artificial plants can also be used to create the jungle, for example, artificial grass like IKEA:

Or artificial vines or vines from FIX PRICE:

By the way, on ALI EXPRESS many of these are sold for ridiculous money.

You can also make your own palm tree. I liked the master class on making palm trees with my own hands.

You will need: a rod, cardboard rolls from toilet paper or paper towels, or a roll from baking paper or foil, a beige postal type wrapping paper or beige paper bags (tear into pieces), rope / twine, green colored paper, a pot. I think the trunk can be made from some kind of thick stick, wrapping it with the same paper, or for thickness, wrap the stick with foam rubber and paper on top. Below is a master class in photos:

Looks great!

To create a background for a photo zone or a background for a candy bar, bamboo blinds will be very suitable (if we have them, by the way, we have them hanging on the loggia), as well as bamboo napkins for the table. The blinds will become the background, and napkins can be laid on the table of the candy bar, or you can decorate the festive table itself (under each plate for the guest) or put it in the middle of the table under the salad bowls. And in combination with artificial green cardboard leaves, it will work out great:

Plush toys or rubber/plastic figurines accumulated over the years in the form of JUNGLE or safari animals (crocodiles, monkeys, tigers, lions, hippos, giraffes, snakes, elephants, etc.) You can use your own and collect from relatives / friends, I'm sure a whole collection will be gathered:

They can be planted in thickets of plants, hung from vines, along walls, curtains, etc.

For example, a snake or a monkey will look original on a plate (made of cardboard, plywood, boards in the country) with an inscription like "WELCOME to SAFARI" or "JUNGLE CALL" and so on:

You can use soft toys or rubber snakes, or make a snake yourself by cutting it out of cardboard or sewing it from fabric: canopies (not necessarily IKEA as in the photo, but those that are). They can be used for competitions as a shelter for tourists or a cave (tent) or as an obstacle in the form of a tunnel through which you need to climb through in the jungle, etc.:

If a child has some wooden toy racks or racks on the loggia, they can also be used by placing plants on them, planting toys, etc.: can be used in the LIFE in the GRASS contest (more details in the post about COUNTRY DR):

I don’t really like air balloons, but this is a matter of taste, so you can inflate animals and use balloons with tiger / lion / cheetah coloring. This will also add atmosphere:

Another accessory that adds brightness to the theme is, of course, garlands. Now there are so many templates on the Internet, and ready-made ones can be bought:

Also food toppers:


Masks and caps can be put on each guest's plate, the table will look colorful!

If, according to the idea of ​​the holiday, the invitees will be in the role of safari tourists, then there will be such accessories (hats, panama hats, glasses, belts, scarves around the neck. You can ask guests to bring with them or prepare them themselves from the available assortment at home or with relatives ):

Tourists can also be given backpacks, cameras, and of course BINOCULARS (from rolls of toilet paper or cardboard, roll up, tie ropes):

which is cheap to find.

2. Decoration of the room

Well, it’s clear that all the accessories will give the room a jungle feel, for example, you can make a liana yourself:

The photo shows that you need beige paper bags, cut them across, roll up these bundles, connect them with glue or a stapler, also hang the leaves at intervals on them (cut the leaves according to the green cardboard template), and the garland is ready! Wrap vines around a chandelier, curtains, etc. :

You can also make a creeper from twine and leaves of the same cardboard:

Also, creepers can be imitated from corrugated paper in rolls (by the way, it is very inexpensive), twisting it around itself, and also from satin green ribbons:

Well, the plants themselves on the shelves will give the room a jungle feel:

-orange tones):

And again balloons:

3. Festive/sweet/children's table/candy bar

3.1. Common table

Bright tablecloths, dishes with a jungle theme, balls in the holiday palette

Another option with READY suitcases in which there is already a set for each child (this is an option for a children's table, for adults, of course, just food). Green leaves made of cardboard like napkins for plates, cardboard palms (ready-made for sale):

Another option: tiger-zebra-cheetah balloons for chairs to the backs, themed dishes, balloons in the form of animal figures:

And one more thing: plates in the form of animals (such sets are sold ready-made), cases made of felt or fabric in the form of animals for chairs, a tablecloth in the theme, tableware wicker under a tree, caps for each guest:


3. 2. Snack table / candy bar / children's buffet

There are a lot of examples of candy bars on the Internet, so I will not show them here, I will show only individual ideas, that is, where I liked something specific on the table.

The main thing is to think over the BACKGROUND of the table (the wall behind it), for example, print pictures and create bushes from cardboard:

Or use all the same bamboo roller blinds or some kind of burlap or brown fabric. Of course, the animals on the table (figures):

By the way, fancy straws look great if you tie them into bundles or put them upright in a bunch. Or you can make a bunch of dry twigs like this:

And also put a live flower in the center of the table at the back. And be sure to use textiles in the holiday palette:

Whatman coloring paper can become the background, then use it for entertainment and competitions for children - color it all together:

cut or printed templates from the internet and cut out:

And yet, animal toys betray the atmosphere of the holiday. By the way, in the last post I talked about artificial mini-lawns (they are sold for summer cottages to collect coverage, there is a fix price). Here you can use it as coasters for dishes:

3.3. Serving food

These cones with delicious treats:

Grapes on skewers in the form of snakes:

Biscuits in the shape of animals or in the colors of animals:

Snakes in the form of a snake:

Fruits in the form of palm trees:

Salads in the beasts:

9000 9000

9000.000 9000.000 9000 9000.000 9000 9000 Hang creepers on the wall, on the sides and top, hang a toy in the form of a monkey or a parrot or a snake:

Make a frame and decorate with accessories in the style of DR:

Cut out the silhouettes of animals from whatman paper or large cardboard, decorate the muzzles with paints or colored paper, cutting out wide mouths (for guests' faces):

Against the background of a decorated room (choose the most decorated place):

I really liked the idea of ​​photographing guests in the form of safari tourists, against the background of indoor plants, and against the background of toys in the form of animals. As if they are sitting in the thicket and looking out for the beast:


There are a lot of various contests, I will focus on the most THEMATIC, interesting in my opinion and easy to perform.


You will need: a box (decorated to look like a palm tree) with a slot, bananas sweets/sweets/or confetti


You will need: small figures of lizards, snakes, frogs, spiders, etc., jars for collecting. Who will find more than

to go on the track

: sheets with painted traces of different animals leading to the beast in the shelter need to guess in the shape of a trace of which beast

Traveling on the jungle

can be made even a plot series of competitions and tests, if the guests are in the role of tourists. Organize a trip to the savannah: walk along the bridge (lay out a narrow rug made of fabric), jump over the lake (hoop), collect all the snakes (jelly worms or the same lizard figurines, etc. ), climb through the tunnel (just a tent, climbing tunnel, jump from mat to mat like from island to island (who has a sports corner and a couple of mats), etc.


For kids (3-4 years old) I think the competition “Oh, who is this? Oh, what is it? Guess all the animals in the pictures (the animals are representatives of the jungle and savannah) or by the sounds made by these animals (including the sounds of a tiger, lion, monkey, etc.).

For older children, this competition is suitable in a slightly different version: the child is given a picture of an animal, he must depict the animal with sounds, posture.


On the floor we put the hoop inside the animal toy, but 1 less than the participants. The guys are behind the hoop. We turn on the music, the children dance around. As soon as the music stops - each kid needs to grab on 1 toy, whoever did not have time - he leaves the game. 1 toy is removed again and we continue to play. So until there is 1 winner.


The guys line up in 2 teams. The first participant is the head of an elephant. With his left hand he depicts a trunk, and the second he gives between the legs of his comrade from behind. To whom they extended their hands, he takes his hand, and gives his second in the same way to the third, and so on until the end of the column. The latter needs to depict the tail, with one he clings to the previous one, and the second shows the tail.

As the teams line up, on the signal they start a fun race. Those who ran to the finish line and did not break the elephant are considered the winners.


Performed to music. Children are given commands that they must follow, not paying attention to the actions of an adult. For example, the host says: “Sit down!”, And he jumps up, “Hands to the sides!”, And he bends over. Don't forget to take a picture of the whole motley "flock"!

You can also turn on the background (on TV or laptop) music in the style of the jungle, the sounds of nature, birds. It will be very atmospheric!

And you can also interpret the jungle theme a little in such as:

cartoon style MADAGASCAR



based on the game THE JUNGLE IS CALLED!

Children's birthday menu: photos, recipes, dish ideas

How to make a child's birthday truly unforgettable? Gather his friends, come up with entertainment and, of course, treat everyone to something delicious. But pleasing little guests is sometimes more difficult than adult gourmets. Our article will come to the rescue. In it, we have collected 10 dishes that will enchant even the most capricious persons. Serve these treats for a kid's birthday party and no one will leave hungry.

Original canapes

Kids will appreciate the unusual serving, and adults will appreciate the ease of cooking. Indeed, among the recipes for a children's birthday, it is important to have at least one option for a quick snack. For canapes in the form of ladybugs, it is better to take unsalted crackers with the addition of whole grain flour. You can grease the products with both pate and hummus or curd cheese.


  • crackers - 10 pcs.
  • cherry tomatoes - 5 pcs.
  • leaf lettuce - 3-4 leaves
  • olives - 3 pcs.

  2. Brush crackers with pâté and cover with lettuce. Excess greens can be removed.
  3. Top the salad with half a cherry and a quarter of an olive.
  4. Decorate the finished ladybug with a pattern of white dots. To do this, dip a toothpick in Greek yogurt or mayonnaise and gently color the workpiece.

Snack Muffins

Children are rarely fans of vegetables. But thanks to such muffins, they will even eat the hated green beans or green peas. It's nice that you can change the toppings to your liking. For example, take corn, ham or some broccoli and cauliflower. It is also better not to forget about the vegetable slices on the table. Serve carrot, pepper and cucumber sticks with yoghurt sauce.


  • green beans - 100 g
  • green peas - 100 g
  • cheese - 100 g
  • chicken eggs - 2 pcs.

Cheese donuts

If you don't know what to cook, try these donuts. At a children's birthday party, they will definitely become a popular treat. The main thing is to find a good crumbly cottage cheese with a fat content of 5-9%. It is desirable that there is not too much moisture in the mass, gluing the grains together. Otherwise, wrap the cottage cheese with gauze and put it under pressure for 2-3 hours to remove excess moisture.


  • cottage cheese - 200 g
  • cheese - 80 g
  • flour - 70 g
  • chicken eggs - 2 pcs.

As a sauce, ordinary ketchup or a mixture of pureed tomatoes boiled with spices is suitable. In addition to cherry tomatoes, you can use bell peppers or broccoli for the filling, and put boiled chicken or turkey instead of ham. When serving, garnish pizzas with fresh herbs, if desired.

  3. Transfer to a clean dish greased with olive oil and leave warm for 1 hour.

  7. Bake the mini pizzas for 15 minutes at 210°C.

Chicken skewers

Homemade skewers continue the selection of recipes for children's birthdays. When preparing a marinade, remember that the child likes simple and understandable tastes more. A large set of seasonings, especially spicy, he will not appreciate. But vegetables will add benefits and make the meat juicier.

Funny apple slices

Even ordinary fruits can be served in an original way. For example, make funny monsters out of apple slices. Sweet sprinkles in the form of eyes can be found on the Internet. If there is no unusual decoration, then make it yourself. Melt the chocolate and use a toothpick or skewer to drizzle over the marshmallows.

Brightly colored cakes on skewers - why not a treat for a child's birthday? It is easy to attract even the birthday man himself to their preparation. Or you can make blanks in advance and invite guests to decorate them with sprinkles and icing. For the latter, it is better to choose white chocolate, since dyes can be added to the resulting mass. Let the little chefs cover the balls on their own and show imagination in decorating.


For the biscuit:

  • chicken eggs - 3 pcs.
  • sugar - 90 g
  • flour - 90 g

For cream:

  • curd cheese - 90 g
  • powdered sugar - 30 g

For glaze:

  • chocolate - 200 g
  • butter - 20 g


  1. Whisk eggs with sugar until fluffy white foam.
  2. Carefully add the sifted flour and knead the dough.
  3. Bake the biscuit for 30 minutes at 180°C.
  4. Cool the finished cake and grind into crumbs.
  5. In a clean bowl, beat the cream cheese with the powdered sugar.
  6. Add biscuit crumbs to the cream and mix. Form into balls 4–5 cm in diameter and refrigerate for 1–2 hours.
  7. Melt chocolate in a water bath and mix with butter. Thread the balls onto wooden skewers.
  8. Dip the balls in the frosting one by one. Let the mass take over.
  9. Decorate each cake pop as you like.

Nut bars

Although a sweet table is an obligatory part of a children's holiday, it is not worth pampering children with a lot of sugar. Instead of store-bought bars or candies, make an alternative treat of nuts and dried fruits. Don't be afraid to change the filling to your liking. For example, make a treat only from almonds or add walnuts.


  • pitted dates - 200 g
  • almonds - 60 g
  • cashews - 50 g
  • peanuts - 50 g
  • hazelnuts - 50 g
  • honey - 50 g
  • coconut oil - 1 tbsp. l.

For glaze:

  • chocolate - 200 g
  • coconut oil - 1 tbsp. l.
