Parties with a purpose!

Since you’re having an African theme, why not give the mom to be this so cute “ Save Elephants from Extinction ” from the Elephant Cooperation with cute mom and baby elephant. There’s also one for the kiddo with Jungle Love featuring two elephants with cute hearts. What’s more, this could be a great gift idea for the big brother or sister. Best of all, 100% of profits from the sales of the tees goes directly to protecting the gentle giants.  Buy a tshirt, save an elephant. ?

There are many more charitable organizations you can showcase at your party. I love this Wild in Africa store with beautiful bracelets. What’s more, they donate 50% of all profits to the charities such as the Wild Tomorrow Fund , the Rhino Rescue project and more!.

Do you know where I can get cutters or templates for fondant cut outs for the animals in the cake with the kangaroo?

Hi Tracy – It appears that the templates were handmade with fondant. The cookie cutouts I’ve seen are similar – but not the same. There are a lot of cute ones out there though on etsy – you may find something you like!

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!

When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

But we don’t have to pigeonhole that experience to just Africa.

The word ‘safari’ comes from the Swahili word ‘safariya,’ which means ‘journey’ – and ‘safariya’ originates from the Arabic word ‘safara,’ which means ‘to travel.’ In essence, a safari is nothing more than a journey.

That’s why having a safari-themed baby shower makes sense. 

Ask any mother, and they’ll tell you the same thing – having a baby is life’s greatest 40-week journey, and motherhood is life’s greatest journey, period. That’s not to say it’ll be easy, but it’s definitely worth it.

So, what better way to celebrate than with a safari-themed baby shower? 

Putting Together the Best Safari-Themed Baby Shower

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Aafari-themed baby showers promise an adventure as wild and entertaining as the journey of parenthood itself, but mothers need to be prepared to make a slew of tough decisions during the planning process. 

Starting with the color scheme.

You could go with more of a jungle or rainforest theme, which would feature a lot of green and color – maybe a waterfall or two. In Africa, this would be the equivalent of the Congo Basin in Central Africa.

Or you could go with a desert theme, which would feature a lot of dull, earthy tones – such as sand, and maybe a cacti or two. In Africa, this would be the equivalent of the Sahara, Namib, or Kalahari deserts.

Either way, a lot of the focus will be on animals. 

When it comes to a safari, the ‘ Big Five ’ game animals are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and African buffalo – but you can also feature the giraffe, monkey, zebra, cheetah, hippo, and crocodile. 

Look at that, you’re already well on your way to a safari-themed baby shower! There’s still a lot to plan, though – so kick back, grab your handy dandy notebook, and let’s hash this out with a little checklist!

Venue & Location

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

The first step in planning a baby shower is finding the right venue and location. It might sound like an easy task, but there are a lot of factors to consider if you want to do right by yourself and your guests. 

For example, it needs to be big enough to fit everyone comfortably, and in a convenient location to prevent any issues with travel. Of course, it also needs to set the tone and match the overall theme. 

Here are five venue and location ideas for your safari-themed baby shower: 

50. A botanical garden offers a lush, green backdrop that can enhance the safari theme.

49. Most local zoos offer event spaces that you can rent for special occasions, like a baby shower.

48. A local park with ample greenery can be transformed into a safari setting with the right decorations

47. A farm or ranch setting can give you a rustic and natural setting that suits a safari theme.

46. Always have an indoor space to use as a backup option – and have decorations ready. 

At the end of the day, your job is to make sure the baby shower is enjoyable, accessible, and memorable for everyone involved. Whether that means doing it at home or elsewhere – well, that’s for you to decide!

Invitations & Thank You Cards

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

By now, you should have a good idea of the who, what, when, and where, but how are you going to let all of your guests know? A simple text would suffice, but let’s be honest – that’s the boring way of doing it. 

Sending formal invitations through the mail (or hand delivered) is the best way to go. 

Invitations not only provide all the necessary information about the baby shower, including the date, time, location, and RSVP details, but the design and style of the invitation can set the tone for the baby shower.

Here are five ways to make the best invitations and thank you cards for your safari-themed baby shower:

45. Use patterns like zebra stripes, leopard spots, or giraffe spots as the background of the invitations.

44. Design the invitations with lush greenery, tropical leaves, vines, and illustrations of safari animals. 

43. Create invitations that look like boarding passes or safari tour tickets, complete with details like flight numbers (date) and seating assignments (time).

42. Incorporate textures into the card design, such as faux leather or a canvas print background, to give a more authentic safari feel.

41. If you can’t find a design online or in-store, use Canva to browse templates – or design your own from scratch!

Of course, don’t forget the ‘thank you’ cards – which are usually sent within two or three weeks of the shower. It’s a great way to show your gratitude for them taking the time to celebrate you on a special day.

Decorations & Design

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Decorations are key to bringing any baby shower theme to life. They can turn the most basic venue into a sophisticated, lush, and vibrant atmosphere that contributes to the guest’s overall experience at the event.

And let’s not forget all the photographs you’ll take. 

Well-thought-out decorations provide beautiful backdrops and themed elements for photos and videos – which help to document this special day for those who couldn’t be there to celebrate with you in person. 

Here are five ideas for decorating and designing your safari-themed baby shower: 

40. Decorate the entrance with faux jungle vines, large green leaves, and large stuffed animals (which can also be used in your nursery).

39. Use green, gold, white, and clear balloons to make a feature arch – and mix in some balloons shaped like safari animals (maybe even some life-sized ones, too!). 

38. Plants – lots of plants. They don’t need to be real, but the more plants, the better. And look for plants that you can re-use in your house, backyard, or at future get-togethers. 

37. Use animal print and fur wherever possible – including blankets, rugs, pillows, seat coverings, and tablecloths. 

36. Having a photo backdrop is a must. Use similar decorations as your entrance and balloon arch, but add in a ‘BABY’ block sculpture. 

If you need some inspiration, you can always google pictures of the Congo Rainforest and Basin, or the Sahara Desert. You can also watch videos of real African safaris on YouTube to get yourself in the mood.

Tableware & Serveware

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Whether you plan on offering appetizers on a snack table or serving a three-course meal in a banquet setting, the tableware and serveware you choose will play a significant role in the guest’s experience. 

For starters, make sure you have way more than what you’ll need. 

Having enough plates, cups, utensils, napkins, and serving dishes can eliminate a lot of the headache when it comes time to eat. Of course, you also want it to look nice and go with your overall theme. 

Let’s go over some tableware and serveware ideas for your safari-themed baby shower: 

35. Go to your local party store or Amazon and buy some animal print or safari-themed plates, cups, utensils, and napkins. Opt for disposable items, if possible. 

34. Instead of using plastic cutlery, buy wooden or bamboo cutlery to give a rustic and natural feel.

33. Use large tropical leaves as placemats – for both plates and serving dishes. 

32. Serve beverages in mason jars with handles. You can tie them with raffia or twine and attach a small leaf or animal tag to each for a personalized touch.

31. Scatter small items like faux leaves, wooden beads, or even little toy animals around the table, and create a fun, safari-inspired centerpiece for each table.

Beautifully designed pieces can serve as centerpieces or accentuate the table setup, adding to the visual appeal of the event. Just make sure you’re not sacrificing any bit of quality or functionality in doing so.

Food, Snacks, & Dessert

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Like we mentioned above, you really have two options when it comes to food – go all out with a full, sit-down meal (like a brunch or dinner), or set up a table with a bounty of snacks and/or appetizers. 

I guess your third option would be to do both. 

Either way, it’s important to have some type of food, snack, or desert for your baby shower – and it even gives you an opportunity to display your creativity and play along with whatever theme you choose.

Here are some food ideas to consider for your safari-themed baby shower:  

30. For the snack table, go with animal crackers, trail mix, animal-shaped candy, tropical fruit snacks, and cheese and crackers. 

29. For the appetizers, you can serve animal-shaped sandwiches and a safari skewer (tropical fruits and varied meats or tofu).

28. For the main course, we recommend trying a Braii-inspired barbecue, Moroccan Tagine, East African Pilau, or an Ethiopian Doro Wat – if you want to do the culture justice. 

27. For dessert, serve animal print cupcakes or cookies, safari-themed cake pops, tropical parfaits, or an African Malva Pudding. 

26. Create a platter of dips that resemble the colors of the savannah—hummus for the sand, spinach dip for foliage, and a red pepper dip for sunset hues. 

In a perfect world, I would recommend having a small snack table for when guests arrive, a small meal about halfway through to keep guests happy, and some kind of a dessert to top things off at the end. 

Drinks & Beverages

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Alright, we’ve taken care of the hunger, but now we have to quench that thirst. Since everyone has their own preference with drinks, we recommend serving a variety of light, easy, and popular beverages. 

Lemonade, iced tea, water, soda, punch, juice – any of these will do. 

And just because the expecting mama can’t drink alcohol, doesn’t mean you can’t serve it to guests. If that’s the route you go, try to avoid hard alcohol and opt for wine, spritzers, Champagne, and mimosas.

Let’s take a look at some drink ideas to consider for your safari-themed baby shower: 

25. Blend tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, and papaya with coconut water and a splash of lime juice for a tasty jungle juice. Serve in a punch bowl.

24. If you go with lemonade, add food coloring to make it blue or pink (or both, if you don’t know the gender).

23. Offer a variety of infused waters to keep guests hydrated. You can use combinations like cucumber-mint, lemon-basil, or orange-rosemary. 

22. If you plan on handing out water in plastic bottles, design a customized water bottle label and replace it with the one already on it. 

21. For alcoholic beverages, offer wines from South Africa’s Cape Winelands or go with a mango-flavored mimosa. 

Combined with your tableware and serveware, these drinks will pair perfectly with your safari theme – adding a sense of vibrancy and imagination to something that’s normally boring and uneventful.

Gift Table & Guest Book

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Having a designated gift table gives guests a specified place to leave their gifts as they arrive, which helps keep the baby shower organized and ensures gifts aren’t misplaced or left in an inconvenient spot.

Whether you plan on opening them during or after the event, all your gifts willl be in one place. 

And while a guest book isn’t necessary, it makes for a great memento for your special day. You can store it in your baby’s nursery as a decoration and continue to cherish it as your child grows and develops. 

Here are a few gift table and guest book ideas for your safari-themed baby shower: 

20. Create a wooden sign that reads, “Gift Drop-Off” and style it with foliage and animals. 

19. Make a personalized card box to use as a centerpiece and design it to look like a safari truck – or your favorite safari animal. 

18. Create a mini safari tent over the gift table using light, natural fabric draped over a simple frame.

17. Design a small map that guides guests to the gift table, incorporating fun elements like “Watch for Lions!” or “Elephant Trail”. 

16. Create a small pathway leading to the gift table using lanterns, stones, petals, tire tracks, and animal tracks.

A gift table makes it easier for the host or the guest of honor to acknowledge and thank each guest for their gifts, either during the event or later through thank you cards. It ensures that no gift goes unnoticed.

Games & Activities

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Baby showers usually bring together guests from various parts of the expectant parents’ lives, such as family, friends, and coworkers, who may not know each other well – which is exciting, but nerve-wracking.

Don’t worry – that’s what games and activities are for. 

They act as the perfect ice-breaker for those who have never met before, and they help keep guests entertained throughout the entirety of the baby shower – no matter how corny and silly the games are. 

Here are some of our favorite games and activities for your safari-themed baby shower: 

15. Set up a jar in the middle of a table and fill it with animal crackers. Have guests guess how many animal crackers are in the jar for a door prize.

14. Provide plain safari hats and various decorations like ribbons, stickers, and patches. Guests can decorate their hats and wear them during the shower.

13. Set up a large canvas or paper wall mural and invite guests to add to a jungle scene throughout the shower. 

12. Create a list of animals and have guests guess the gestation period for each – or have them write down what the babies are called (for example, a baby elephant is called a calf). 

11. Play charades where guests have to act out different jungle animals without speaking. This can lead to lots of laughs and good times.

If you really want to keep energy levels up (and introduce a sense of competition to the games), you can always offer prizes to the winners – and even consolation prizes to those who don’t come out on top.

Party Favors & Mementos

Handing out party favors at a baby shower is not absolutely necessary, but they’re a great way to thank your guests for celebrating the special day with you – and, of course, thank them for the gifts and support. 

They can also double as a keepsake for those who show up. 

Just like decorations and themed food, party favors can contribute to the festive atmosphere of the event. You can also use them as gifts for those exciting games and activities you have planned for the guests. 

Let’s take a look at some of our favorite party favor ideas for a safari-themed baby shower: 

10. Give out mini succulents or cacti in small pots that have animal prints or are shaped like safari animals. 

9. Distribute handmade soaps infused with safari-inspired scents like sandalwood, coconut, or shea butter.

8. Give them a goodie bag filled with beautifully decorated cookies shaped and painted like various jungle animals.

7. Offer candles that have scents inspired by the savannah and rainforest, such as acacia, rain, or grassland.

6. Give out small photo frames that fit the safari theme, possibly with animal prints or rustic wooden frames. It can house the group photo you guys take later on!

If you decide to hand out party favors, keep in mind that they don’t have to be extravagant or expensive. Simple, thoughtful items that align with the theme or something useful like a small plant would suffice! 

Dress Code & Attire

Safari-Themed Baby Shower Ideas to Get Your Creative Juices Flowing! | When most people hear the term ‘safari,’ they immediately think of Africa – which is understandable because most safaris do, in fact, happen in the motherland. At least, that’s where all the best ones are.

Although not totally necessary, you could institute a dress code for the event. When everyone dresses in a similar style or palette, it creates beautiful, cohesive visuals, which are especially great for photographs.

Keep in mind that strict dress codes might turn some people off from the event. 

If not communicated clearly, a dress code can lead to confusion about what is appropriate or expected, which might make some guests uncomfortable. It’s best to encourage a dress code, but don’t enforce it.

Here are five ways you can have fun with a dress code for a safari-themed baby shower: 

5. Go with a pure safari theme, fit with khaki pants, vests, safari hats, and hiking shoes.

4. Ask guests to incorporate animal prints into their outfits, but give them the freedom to decide how.

3. Make it simple and ask guests to follow a singular color scheme – earthy tones for the desert, vibrant colors for the rainforest.

2. Tell everyone they can wear what they want, but they need to include their favorite set of binoculars in their outfit.

1. Ditch the safari theme altogether and let everyone wear what they want – or have them wear their favorite dress-up outfit. 

If you plan on having a dress code for your baby shower, make sure you communicate it clearly in the invitation, and give guests an ample amount of time to prepare. As always – the less stress, the better!

A safari baby shower is so easy to throw together.

How To Throw A Safari-Themed Baby Shower

Welcome to the jungle!

There’s a lot of hard work that goes into planning the perfect baby shower . Not only do you have to find a great venue and work on a guest list that everyone will be happy with, but you also have to come up with the right theme, and then stick to it... with everything. A safari- themed baby shower is a really fun idea for the mama-to-be who loves nature or animals (or both), and is even more perfect if the parents are going to be doing a safari theme for their little one’s nursery.

To throw a safari-themed baby shower that feels Pinterest-worthy, you’ll need to put a lot of thought into every little detail. I recently threw my daughter a safari-themed birthday party (2 Wild!), so I consider myself something of an expert here, OK? The good news is that the safari theme is a popular one, so there are tons of cute options out there to choose from, whether you’re looking for the best invitations, the most creative food selections, or the most fun decorations. Check out the ideas below to get started.

We only include products that have been independently selected by Romper's editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

Safari Baby Shower Invitations

Invitations are the first step in your party planning. Picking an on-theme invitation is important because it shows everyone exactly what to expect and sets the mood. You have some options on how to go about this:

  • Opt for a calligrapher . If you have the budget for it, hire a calligrapher or similar professional to make your invitations for you. This gives you the ability to help them create a totally customized invitation, and they will typically also write out the envelopes as well, so all you have to do is put them together and send them out. Keep in mind that this is the most expensive option.
  • Order invitations online. Not into the custom idea? There are tons of sites online you can order invites from, and they range from very inexpensive to more premium, depending on what you’re looking for. I personally love Minted because the prices are reasonable, and they will also address your envelopes for no extra charge.
  • Go the Etsy route. For an even cheaper option and something that feels more unique, look for invites on Etsy . Lots of artists make the most adorable invitations, and many of them offer the ability to download them as a PDF for a flat rate (this is usually less than $10). From there, you can get them printed at a store like Staples and send them out yourself, or print them at home.
  • Do e-vites! Evites are super easy, inexpensive (or even free), convenient, and the most sustainable option. A lot of my friends use Evite.com and it works out really well. This is also the easiest way to keep track of RSVPs.

If you do want to order your invitations online, here are some of the cutest safari options.

Safari Animal Baby Shower Invitation

Safari Baby Shower Centerpieces

Get creative and DIY your own centerpieces or buy them already made. Here are some ideas to take inspiration from:

A Sand-Filled Glass Jar

Gold Safari Animals

Buy some glass jars, sand, fake palm leaves, and gold jungle animals (like these from Etsy ). Fill the bottoms of the tall jars with sand, throw some animals in there, and add some leaves. It looks both cute and sophisticated.

Mini Diaper Cakes

Animal Diaper Centerpieces

These mini diaper cakes work double duty as a fun centerpiece idea and as a gift for the mama-to-be — they can unravel them and use the diapers when baby gets here. Buy them from Etsy or craft them yourself.

Metallic Palm Trees

Palm trees are perfect for a jungle-themed party. These don’t require much else at all and they’re super easy since they don’t require any DIY.

Palm Leaves Bouquet

Monstera Leaves

For something slightly more chic, get some artificial monstera leaves and put them in a slim white vase. This is simple and feels more elegant and less cutesy.

Safari Baby Shower Balloons

Balloons are an easy and relatively inexpensive way to make any room or backyard look more festive and on theme. You can either buy balloons online and blow them up yourself (just be sure to look into helium machines), or you can order them from a party store near you. I love the animal print balloons that I used at my daughter’s party (linked below), and it’s also a cute idea to get some animal-shaped ones as well. A balloon arch is always fun, and while they can take a while, they’re worth it for the photos. Or you can hire someone to make them for you!

Safari Balloon Garland

Safari Baby Shower Signs

Signs are a cute decoration for the entrance into whatever room or venue you’re using, and they’re also fun to scatter along the various food and gift tables. Banners are also a great idea to add below a balloon arch or draped from a table.

Safari Baby Shower Welcome Sign

Safari Baby Shower Decorations

You can also scatter some other decorations around the room. Think baby blocks with a safari theme (bonus points if they can be used as nursery room decor later on), small items like hand-held fans to place at the tables, or diaper cakes that are on-theme.

Animal Safari Set

Safari Baby Shower Photo Backdrops

You obviously need to have a great spot for photos for social media! This is so fun for making memories and capturing images of your guests that you’ll want later on. You can do a sign with your name and date, or something a bit more general, like leafy greens that can easily be reused for photos or an event later on.

Safari Baby Shower Backdrop

Safari Baby Shower Games

This is a baby shower, so of course you have to have games, no matter how corny it might seem. You can keep games on theme with cute decorations that go along with them. Some cute ideas: put animal crackers in a jar and get people to guess how many, match the Disney animals to their parents, and do a jungle Price is Right. You can also rely on classics like advice cards, diaper raffles, and bingo.

Guess How Many Animal Crackers

Safari Baby Shower Paper Goods

If the baby shower is being held at someone’s home or in an outdoor venue that requires you to provide utensils and plates and all of that, then you’ll need to have paper goods on hand. And sure, you could opt for a solid color for everything, and that’s totally fine. But it’s a little more fun to stay on theme. Opt for fun animal print napkins and plates, and Meri Meri offers this amazing line of creative plates and napkins as well.

Go Wild Toucan Napkins

Safari Baby Shower Party Favors

A small favor is expected at something like a baby shower, and they can be fun to pick out. You can go for something traditional and classic, like a candle or hand sanitizer (which is really popular right now), or something that feels more appropriate for the theme: think animal crackers in a bag or leopard print scrunchies.

Safari Baby Shower Dessert Ideas

Maybe the most fun part of the whole baby shower is coming up with a safari themed dessert table. If you’re planning on supplying desserts for the shower, there are tons of ideas out there for the cutest jungle animal treats.

Safari Animal Pretzel Sticks

pretzel animal sticks

Inspired by an image on Pinterest , I *painstakingly* made these pretzel sticks for my daughter’s safari party, and they were a hit. I chose to do tiger stripes, cheetah/leopard print, and zebra print. It’s simple, but time-consuming: dip pretzels in melted chocolate (I found orange, salted caramel, and white chocolate at the craft store near me), then add the design using melted dark or milk chocolate. I used a toothpick to create these designs, and yes, it took about as long as it sounds like it would. But I think they came out so fun! And, bonus: these also work as a good edible favor.

Monkey, Lion, & Tiger Cupcakes

animal cupcakes

Inspired by the recipes for jungle cupcakes on Chelsea’s Messy Apron , I made these lion, tiger, and monkey cupcakes. These were not as hard as they seem — I’m not a professional by any means and had no trouble doing these with my mom and aunt. They’re a little time-consuming, but completely worth it, because they were adorable — and delicious. I chose cupcakes instead of cake, but you can do both.

Chic Safari Cake Pops

You can buy these chic gold safari theme cake pops from Etsy , or you can make them yourself. These definitely look like a professional is necessary, so I recommend buying them if you’re not a pro at this kind of thing.

Jungle Theme Rice Krispie Treats

Another item you can buy from Etsy or make yourself is these jungle-themed Rice Krispie treats. You would decorate them with melted chocolate, which seems relatively simple, if not a little time-consuming. These are another item that look so cute on the dessert table, or can easily be wrapped up and sent off as edible party favors.

Jungle Cookies

Custom decorated cookies like these are always a popular option. They taste good and look so amazing. You can buy these from Etsy , or you can try creating them yourself. This palm leaf and animal set is adorable, but the options here are really endless.

Safari Baby Shower Ideas: Planning a Safari-Themed Celebration

Planning a baby shower can be almost as exciting as the execution! There are many ideas, and when following a Safari Baby Shower theme, the number of animals and colors that can be included is nearly endless. From decorations to gifts, food, and activities, there are so many Safari Baby Shower ideas to choose from.

With many options available there are sure to be many opportunities to choose from alternatives for decorations, foods, and activities that will fit an elegant party, a kid or family-friendly party, or a lighthearted gathering. The expecting mother is sure to appreciate all of the efforts and will remember her Safari baby shower with fondness as they watch the child grow.

Safari Baby Shower Ideas – Decorations

safari baby shower ideas for a girl

Safari Baby Shower decorations really begin with what invitations you choose, as these will set the tone for the guests right from the start. For a safari themed Baby Shower choose invitations that are in green, tan, and natural colours. Safari invitations can be matched to balloons, banners, and much more.

Banners are a great way to share joy and greet people as they enter. Choose one that has baby animals on it, real or cartoon, and announce “congratulations”, or “welcome” or even that has the baby’s name and the month that they are due. Banners can be all one piece or they can be created with a string of flags, letters, or balloons.

Place settings add to the theme and help to create a cohesive appearance. Plates, napkins, and cups can all be themed. For a safari Baby Shower theme choose items that have images of animals on them, ideally baby animals for the baby shower. For added interest, cups can be located that are shaped like animals, for example, elephant cups with their trunk as the handle. These will please even the most serious party guests.

For easy and fun decorations, and even to use as a gift suggestion, use stuffed animals that are animals you would find on a safari, giraffes, elephants, lions, tigers, etc. They can be placed around the room and used as a game later, or they can be all piled in one space like a hammock or scene. Ask guests to bring a copy of their childhood favorites to add to the special occasion.

Small plastic toy animals are ideal for this theme and can be placed around the table or hidden as surprises around the entire space. They are also perfect for putting on top of cake or cupcakes.

Use a tablecloth that is in the colors that match, a dark green or light green, tan, brown, or in animal print for added fun. The tablecloth will not only protect the surface of your table but add to the overall appeal of the space.

A safari theme backdrop can be used to make a great photography space. These can be as large or small as you want and can be hung on a wall inside or outside. Set up some props including animal masks, balloons, stuffed animals, and a camera to allow your guests to pose in front of it for both decoration and a fun activity to memorialize the event.

Safari gear, such as helmets, all-terrain vehicles, boots, and clothing can all be used to place around the room or even dress a scarecrow for added interest.

Balloons in the themed colors can be grouped near areas of interest such as the gift table, the snack table, and a guestbook to help guide visitors to all the areas that they should be sure to visit and can even mark the way to the bathroom for those guests who are not familiar with the home.

Leaves, palm trees, and sand are all associated with safari and can be added to the theme. Stand some fake palm trees around the space, and add some other large-leafed trees, real or artificial, to create a full safari immersion feeling. Bringing in elements of the environment can help people to settle into the theme and enjoy it even more. 

A safari themed balloon arch is a great way to create a focus in the room and when made with dark green light green, browns, and other neutral and calm tones will fit the theme and feel of your Safari baby shower. Place it around the space for gift opening or where the guest of honor will sit, or use it to frame a space for photographs, surround a framed picture of the sonogram, or bring attention to any other part of the experience.

More Safari Baby Shower Ideas

Print and hang pictures of animals on safari. These can be blown up for larger spaces, or printed smaller to put on place cards, or labelled food. Choose images that are cute, funny, silly, or include baby animals to match the theme the best.

Balloon animals are ideal for decorating a safari baby shower. These can be placed strategically around the room or along with other balloon arrangements to add visual interest, and people are certain to remember the baby shower with the balloon animals.

Goodie bags, or baby shower favors , are another way to tie the theme together and show your guests that you appreciate their attendance. Animal keychains, safari animal stickers to seal bags of candy or animal cracker treats, books about someone who went on safari, and the bags or boxes themselves being animal prints or having an image of animals on them are all a great fit for this theme.

Use wooden blocks with animals painted on them to create staggered presentations for snacks, drinks, and other decorations.

safari baby shower decor

Add animal prints around the space. A zebra print throw blanket, cheetah print throw pillows, fake fur rugs, and even curtains and tablecloths can all be sourced in assorted animal prints.

Add streamers to the doorways, link balloons, and drape the tables to add additional color and detail.

Confetti can be spread around the table to add fun to the decorations and add a pop of color to any space.

Safari Baby Shower Food Ideas

Desserts are always a focus when food is involved, and sand can be a great starting point. Use ground graham crackers to create a sand base and add gummy animals to the “sand” all over a pudding for a great snack that everyone is sure to enjoy regardless of age.

Make your drinks exotic by using flavors related to a safari experience. Sparkling water is easy to flavor and safe for all ages, even the guest of honor, and can be created in pineapple, coconut pineapple, grapefruit, and many other varieties. Serve in champagne glasses for an elegant feel or place out small bottles of flavored water.

Serve cupcakes with green icing to mimic the plains and add a small plastic safari animal on top. Alternatively, an image of an animal placed as a flag on the top is easily added to either homemade or store-bought cupcakes.

Have a Safari themed cake made that has a dessert or oasis theme and use it as a centerpiece for the dessert or food table. This will delight the guests and create a lasting memory of the event.

Donuts can be lined up, standing against each other, and topped with green paper or toppers to look like pineapples. A matching taste profile adds to the appeal.

Fruit salads can add a light and flavorful option for a snack table.

Choose cupcake toppers, either from fondant, modeling chocolate, or printed images to place on top of plain cupcakes for easy dessert.

A punch with fruit floating on top can be used to create a watering hole, allowing people to stop by and pour a drink.

Cake pops covered with animal prints are sure to delight.

A veggie tray can mimic the food choices of the herbivores on safari and can be arranged to look like animals with a carrot mane, raisins for eyes, or bread as an elephant’s trunk. There are many creative ways to organize vegetables and other foods to look like animals.

Kebabs are a fun and easy way to enjoy snacks during a baby shower or other gathering. Chicken or other meats can be used along with vegetables or other savory items, while fruit kebabs with pineapple, grapes, berries, and more can add a pop of color to the table and let people snack as they socialize.

Animal Crackers can be placed in ground graham cracker base to appear as though they are walking across the sand, or in pudding for a mixture of textures.

What to bring to a Safari Baby Shower?

safari baby shower ideas for a girl

  • Request stuffed animals as a gift, and you can create your own safari experience for the baby as it grows.
  • Clothes that are safari themed or have animals on them can fit the theme well.
  • Decoration or images, pictures, framed posters, and other decorative items are wonderful gifts for building a nursery.
  • Gifts for guests can also be safari themed including small bags of candies with safari anima stickers holding them closed.
  • Plastic or even robotic animals are great gifts for a safari-themed baby shower and can help the baby to learn about animals as they grow.
  • Books on animals, safaris, and baby animals are all great gifts for any shower.

Safari Themed Baby Shower Games

  • Create an animal safari by setting up stuffed animals around the room and putting up cards with basic information on each animal.
  • Build a photo booth with a cut-out where the face would be, allowing guests to take pictures of themselves as those animals.
  • Create a scavenger hunt with stuffed or plastic animals around the room and have guests find them all and check them off.
  • Play a trivia game based on basic facts about the animals you see on safari.
  • Fill a jar with small plastic elephants or giraffes and have people guess how many are in the jar.
  • Create a bingo card using safari animals and plants.
  • Rent animal costumes and have a race to see who can get dressed as an animal the fastest.
  • Face painters can paint all the guest faces as different animals to bring some whimsy and light fun to the event.
  • Pin the tail on the tiger.
  • Fill a tub with sand and place toys within, then blindfold participants and have them search through the sand to find the animal toys. The first to find a certain number can win.
  • Enjoy a wordplay game taking characteristics of safari animals and applying them to children. For example how they walk when they are first learning, how joeys ride with their mother, lions roar when they want something, and see who can come up with the best comparisons or puns.
  • Play animal sounds and see who can name the animal the fastest.

Safari Themed Baby Shower Final Note

When planning a baby shower there are many things to consider. Once the theme is determined it can be easier to piece together the event and choose food, activities, and decorations that will match. A safari is full of new foliage, expansive views, and animals that some may never see in zoos. By incorporating each of these aspects into the planning a fun and whimsical experience that will bring joy to all those in attendance.

Many of the decorations and games are easy to find and the food can be made in ways that are budget-friendly and easy to execute. A safari-themed baby shower is sure to impress all of the guests and can even help them to choose what gifts to choose or how to wrap them. Be sure to take plenty of photos, or have everyone send the pictures they take to one online photo album to share the memories and keep them for years to come.

A sweet theme for a mom about to embark on a new adventure.

Whether you’re a first-time parent or already have a growing family, welcoming a new baby into the world is a wild ride. So why not channel that spirit with a safari-themed baby shower?

Safari-themed baby showers are a fun twist on the usual soft blue or pink-themed baby showers full of stork and rattle decor. They give you a chance to show some personality and to create a day that will be memorable for all of your guests for years to come.

The safari theme can go a couple of different ways. You can lean into the more dusty, muted tones of the African Savannah: decorating your space with animals like cheetahs, elephants, and giraffes. Or, you can go for a jungle vibe with bold greens, punchy florals, parrots, and monkeys.

Whichever type of safari you decide to embark on with your shower guests, this guide to throwing the perfect safari-themed baby shower will have you covered. Read on for everything you need to know to plan the perfect day to celebrate your wild new arrival.

Safari Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

Your invitation serves as the first chance for you to show off your safari theme — so go wild! First, pick an invitation that matches your Savannah or Jungle safari theme, then get creative with safari-inspired invitation wording.ar

  • Storybook: Channel childhood classics like The Jungle Book in your invitation by going for a design that looks like it could come from the pages of a storybook. Look for invitations with illustrations of safari animals that are full of personality — and remember to select a design that matches either your Savannah or Jungle theme!

Jungle Animal Sketchbook

  • Watercolor: For an unexpected twist on the safari theme, go for a monochrome watercolor invitation. The soft colors and whimsical watercolor animals are sure to catch guests' eyes, and they elevate the invitation into a true keepsake.

New Adventure

New Adventure by Pati Cascino

  • Bold: For a more modern take on baby shower invitations, go for a design that swaps out cute cartoon-style illustrations for bold artwork and typography. Go wild with color and large-scale text for an invitation design that is as cool as you are.

Camouflage Warriors

  • Boho: Safari-themed baby showers are perfect for parents-to-be that will be welcoming their baby into a home full of bohemian decor. Channel that aesthetic by looking for an invitation design that features hallmarks of bohemian interior design — like the illustrations of rattan shelves and houseplants that frame this invitation.

Baby Tiger

  • Sweet and Simple: A safari theme can also lend itself to a more minimal aesthetic. If that is the vibe you’re going for, look for a design that keeps things simple by featuring just one illustration of a classic safari animal.

Baby Animal Giraffe

  • Foil-Pressed: Though metallics aren’t often the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a safari, your invitation can be a great way to add a bit of glamor to the nature-focused theme. Look for an invitation that features animal illustrations pressed in foil for a high-design touch.

  • “A little wild one is on the way!”
  • “We’re wild with excitement!”
  • “It’s about to get wild!”
  • “The Pack is Getting Bigger!”
  • “Help Us Welcome a New Baby to the Jungle!”
  • “There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go.” - Dr. Seuss
  • “Let the wild rumpus start!” - Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are
  • “In the jungle,the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.” - The Tokens

Etiquette Tips

When to have a baby shower?

It is traditional to hold the baby shower 4 to 6 weeks before the baby is born. This timing means that the pregnancy is far enough along for the mom-to-be to celebrate without fear of a miscarriage, and is early enough to avoid a preemie.

That said, you can always host the shower after the baby arrives as a Sip and See party if you aren’t able to get it planned before the due date. As with all things related to parenthood, do what feels good to you!

Whom should I invite to the baby shower?

The best rule of thumb here is to invite your nearest and dearest. Traditionally, baby showers were women-only events, though that has changed in recent years. So if the mom-to-be wants the dad-to-be or her own father at the shower, definitely invite them!

Whom should I not invite to the baby shower?

The people you leave off of the guest list can be an intensely personal choice — and can depend on the size of shower you’re hoping to have. If you’re having a more intimate party, don’t feel obliged to invite casual friends or acquaintances like coworkers and distant cousins. We also recommend only inviting people who you know will be happy to shower the new baby in love. Remember that it is OK to leave family members that don’t support you off your guest list.

When should I send out the baby shower invitations?

We suggest sending your invitations at least a month before the date of your shower. This gives guests enough time to put the date on their schedule, and will give you the best chance to have all of your loved ones join you.

That said, if you plan to invite many people from out of state, we’d suggest sending invitations as early as possible to give them time to plan travel and accommodations.

Safari Baby Shower Decoration Ideas

Your safari shower decor can be as wild or as simple as you’d like it to be! No matter what level of decor you decide to include, be sure to tie in shades of greens, browns, and tans throughout your venue to keep things festive and on theme.

Safari Baby Shower Centerpieces

Diy centerpiece.

If you are going to be DIYing the decor of your safari-themed baby shower, go for something simple and striking like this centerpiece. Simply fill glass vases (or mason jars) with rocks to anchor leaf clippings that look like they could’ve come straight from the jungle. Accenting a simple white tablecloth with a burlap runner reminiscent of classic safari tents is another great way to further nod to the theme.

Safari-Goes-Glam

For something a bit more opulent, go for a big, bold centerpiece like the one pictured here. The mix of florals, gold, and sweet animal figurines perfectly captures the theme and makes for an epic backdrop to your photos. Just remember, if you are going to go for big, bold monstera leaves in a centerpiece, make sure to place them above eye line so your guests can still see and connect with each other!

Gilded Animal Figurines

To give your safari theme a sophisticated feel, go for gilded accents like these golden giraffes. This is another budget-friendly DIY, as you can simply spray paint animal toys in gold, rose gold, or silver. Placing them inside a large vase like this adds a bit of interest to a simple floral arrangement, or you can use them as stand-alone centerpiece decor.

Foliage Runner

For a more low-profile centerpiece, swap out a traditional fabric runner for a bit of greenery. If you are going for more of a lush, jungle theme look for leaves (real or faux) in deep greens and mossy tones like the ones pictured here. For a centerpiece inspired by the Great Plains, line the center of your table with soft grasses. The gilded animal figurines make a nice touch here, but you could skip them in favor of decor like candles or to leave room for shared dishes of food.

Subtly Sophisticated

For an unexpected and on-trend take on balloons, go for a half balloon arch in neutral colors. Then, tie in the theme by weaving in large faux leaves and accenting the arch with oversized safari stuffed animals.

Photo

Playful Messages

To have a bit of fun with a more neutral color palette, go for gold balloons that spell out phrases like “Oh Baby” or even “Wild Child” for something on-theme. You could keep things simple and have these balloons stand on their own, or pair them with a balloon arch like the one shown here.

Photo

Photo by The Wooz Craft

Simply Festive

If you don’t have the budget for a balloon arch, go for smaller bouquets of balloons. Pick clusters of balloons in colors that nod to safaris — think neutrals like the ones shown here for a Savannah-themed shower, or deeper greens and browns for a jungle safari look.

For a glamorous safari-themed photo backdrop, go big and bold with your balloon choice. The mix of cascading neutral-colored balloons and pampas grass offers a bit of sophistication that will look great in photos, as will a sign with the new baby’s name!

DIY Photo Booth

If you don’t have a ton of space to create a photo backdrop for your safari-themed shower, go for something like this. You can hang gold streamers from a rig as seen here, or simply take over a blank wall. The sweet paper pom-poms, green leaves, and balloons are a nice way to further tie in the theme, and add a bit of visual interest to photos.

Repurpose the boho decor you already have at home by using it to create a sweet photo backdrop that doubles as the seat of honor during gift time for the mom-to-be. Accent the area behind the chair with a balloon arch, woven baskets, and animal-inspired decor to connect everything back to the safari theme.

Safari-themed Personalized Art Prints

In addition to traditional party decor, it is a great idea to use multi-purpose decorations like on-theme art prints that the parents can use to decorate the baby’s room once the shower is over. Minted offers a huge selection of safari- and animal-themed prints from independent artists around the world, many of which can be personalized to feature the baby’s name or birthdate. Here are a few of our favorites.

Safari Baby Shower Signs

Whether you’re going full-out with safari decorations or are keeping things more simple at your shower, use signs to tie in the theme. From welcome signs, menus, and chair signs to game instructions and more , there are plenty of ways to weave your safari aesthetic across the celebration.

Welcome Signs

Minted’s selection of baby shower welcome signs all offer the perfect mix of design and readability. For a safari-inspired shower, look for welcome signs that feature illustrations of flora and fauna, and don’t be afraid to take a jungle-inspired twist on what the sign says. “Welcome Party Animals” or “Welcome to the Jungle” are cute, safari-inspired options.

  • Sweet Illustrations: If you went for a storybook-inspired invitation, keep the whimsical vibe going with a welcome sign that features sweet illustrations of elephants, giraffes, and crocodiles.

Jungle shower

  • Abstract: You can still capture the safari spirit without going over the top on animal iconography. This abstract design calls to mind the colors of a safari and the shapes of nature. Just be sure to pick a colorway that matches your decor!

Rainbow Shapes

Rainbow Shapes by Morgan Kendall

  • Jungle Greens: If you’re inspired by the lush ferns and trees of jungle safaris, pick a sign that puts them front and center. This particular style is a nice way to highlight vibrant foliage, while still keeping a minimal and clean look.

jungle edge

  • Cute & Playful: For another take on an abstract style, look for a sign design that features a playful take on the shapes of safari animals. This particular one is super fun — and calls to mind some of the toys the new baby is sure to receive.

Safari

Table & Menu Signs

Minted offers suites of safari and jungle-look baby shower signs featuring the same design for a cohesive look. Or, if you prefer to switch things up, you can mix and match your table and menu signs for a more eclectic vibe.

  • Vibrant Floral Menu: If you’re looking to add a bit of variety to your day-of signs, go for a menu that calls to mind the bright flowers found in jungles and other tropical climates. Safaris aren’t all grasses and ferns, after all!

Watercolor Blossoms

  • Classic Safari: Or, you can keep things cohesive and classic with this sweet take on the sights of a safari. This particular design is available across a range of different signs, and is a great option for a more elegant safari theme.

Jungle shower

  • Dino Deserts: You don’t have to stick to the Big 5 family of animals if you are hosting a safari-themed baby shower! Channel a safari that is more along the lines of Jurassic Park with this cute dinosaur-themed dessert table card.

Oh Boy!

Oh Boy! by Michelle Shanaman

  • Abstract Watercolor: Going for a simpler sign to mark the cards and gift table is a great way to let the pile of presents the parents-to-be are sure to receive shine. The turtle colorway of this sign calls to mind the colors of the African Savannah with sweeps of khaki green, dusty earth, and sky blue.

Hello Baby Shapes

Hello Baby Shapes by Pixel and Hank

Chair Signs

Reserve seats for the parents-to-be with sweet chair signs. This is another chance to have some fun with the safari theme, so instead of going for standard text like “Mom to Be” we’d suggest playing with phrases like “Mama Bear” or “Leader of the Pack.”

  • Monochrome: If you’re going big and bold with your shower decor, keep the chair signs simple. Opt for a style that is inspired by the colors of a safari to ensure it doesn’t compete with more eye-catching centerpieces.

Whisper

Whisper by Sara Hicks Malone

  • Starry Sky: If “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is one of mama’s favorite songs, go for a sweet night sky-themed chair sign as a subtle way to nod to the safari theme.

baby balloon ride

  • Elegant Script: This is another great option if you’re looking for a sign that won’t compete with the themed decor. If you’re going to use gold animal figurines or accents in your decor, go for the Snow colorway of this sign to tie it all together.

Elegant Mom

Elegant Mom by Carolyn MacLaren

  • Gingham: Though gingham isn’t the first print you think of when imagining a safari theme, we think it is a sweet way to nod to the great outdoors. This works best for showers with a Savannah safari theme, and in muted colors.

Charming

Charming by Lea Delaveris

Safari Baby Shower Game Ideas

No baby shower is complete without a game or two! You can give any traditional baby shower game a safari twist, especially if you go for a baby shower activity sign with a sweet safari-inspired design. Here are a few game ideas that are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

Guess the Birthday

This is one of the most straightforward games in the book. Hang a calendar featuring the birth month up for guests, and provide stickers for them to use to guess when the baby will finally arrive. If you’re comfortable, you can mark the due date on the sign, but you don’t have to. We’d also suggest buying some safari-themed stickers for guests to use as a fun additional nod to the theme.

Tiny Human

Tiny Human by Corinne Malesic

Diaper Raffle

Holding a diaper raffle is a fun way to say thank you to the guests who brought what a new parent needs most: diapers, diapers, and more diapers! Simply hand out raffle tickets when guests drop off their package of diapers at the beginning of the shower. Then, when you’re ready to play games, pull a winning ticket or two out of a safari hat. Bonus points if you keep your raffle prize on theme by giving the winning guest something like a potted plant that looks like it could’ve come out of the jungle.

Guess the Sex

If the parents-to-be haven’t revealed the sex of the baby (or if you are hosting a safari-themed reveal party), let guests compete to see who can guess it. If you already know the sex and the couple is comfortable sharing it at the shower, you can give any guest who guesses correctly a small favor. Again, bonus points for keeping the prizes on theme!

Cakes, Food, and Drink Ideas

Your shower safari doesn’t have to stop at the decor. Your cake, food, and drinks are another opportunity for you to tie in a wild theme. Look for treats that feature animal prints or serve more traditional snacks in safari-inspired vessels.

Safari-Inspired Cakes

Animal tower.

Use a classic three-tier cake as another opportunity to display sweet gilded animal figurines. You can keep things minimal by featuring just the figurines, or add a bit more visual interest with fondant foliage and flowers.

Bold & Boho

If you are hosting a safari baby shower with a more bohemian flair, go for a cake that is perfectly imperfect. The two-tone effect of this one is a nice way to mimic the look of a traditional tiered cake, and helps balance out a wild topper of animal figurines and leaves.

Image Source:

Image Source: Naked Bakes

Party Animal Cupcakes

Picking up a pack of safari animal cake toppers is a great way to make simple layered cakes or cupcakes on theme for the shower. These toppers can go with nearly any safari-shower style, but we love how they look when paired with funfetti cupcakes.

Image Source:

Image Source: Painted Parade

Cute Cookies

If cake isn’t your thing, opt for cookies instead! Go for a mix of sugar cookies in the shape of safari animals, jungle leaves, onesies and more for a sweet eclectic look.

Food & Drink

Safari snacks.

Serve your snacks in bowls that look like the huge leaves you might see while on a jungle safari. (Another option would be to serve them in bowls that look like the classic safari hat.) If you can’t find safari-inspired snacks like truffles in the shape of monkeys, don’t worry — these festive dishes will ensure everything stays on theme!

Pineapple Palm Tree

For a snack table centerpiece that is easy to DIY, go for a pineapple palm tree. Simply cut the tops off a few similarly-sized pineapples and thread them onto a dowel with a platform at the bottom. Then, top with a few faux fern leaves and a sweet safari-animal figurine!

Image Source:

Refreshing Mixes

Serve a mixed drink like a virgin mojito or even water infused with fruit in a vintage-looking glass jug for a safari-inspired look. Adding natural decorations like a wooden pedestal and grass-like texture around the top of the jug will help bring the safari theme to life, as will clever puns like “Jungle Juice” or “Mirage Mimosas”

Safari Baby Shower Favors

Say thank you to your guests in safari style with on-theme favors. As with all party favors, we suggest sticking with something your guests will use long after the due date. Whatever you choose, be sure to attach a safari-inspired gift tag , or wrap them in something like burlap to continue the theme.

Personalized Pouch

If you are hosting a more intimate shower, say thank you to your nearest and dearest by giving them a pouch personalized with their name. Minted offers pouches in a huge range of prints created by independent artists, but look for one that features safari-inspired colors or textures.

Basic

Basic by Bethania Lima

Sweet Succulents

Send guests home with something that will grow right alongside the new baby! Go for succulents to keep things easy, or you can opt for something more jungle-inspired like a snake plant or monstera.

Snacks for the Road

Create safari-themed mason jars by spray painting the lids and small animal figurines in silver or gold. Then, hot glue the figurines to the tops of the jars and fill them with treats to send your guests something sweet to snack on for days to come.

Baby Shower Thank You Cards

In addition to sending your guests off with a favor from your shower, be sure to thank them for supporting you in this next adventure with a thoughtful thank you card. Pick a design that reminds them of the day’s safari theme and be sure to add a personalized note in each before sending them off.

When to Send Thank You Cards

A general rule of thumb is that thank you cards should go out no later than two months after the baby is born. That said, if the shower is before your due date, it’s never a bad idea to write your thank you cards before the baby arrives. That way, you can be sure you don’t let thanking anyone fall through the cracks.

Whom to Send Thank You Cards To

You should send a thank you card to anyone who attended the shower. It is also a nice gesture to send thank you cards to guests that couldn’t attend the shower but still sent your new arrival a gift.

Elephant Shower

Elephant Shower by Lori Wemple

Tips for Writing the Perfect Thank You Card

Writing the perfect thank you card is all about being thoughtful. Ask a trusted friend to take notes of who gave you what while you open gifts, and then be sure to mention how much you appreciated the specific gift a guest gave you.

  • Include a general thanks for coming to the shower or sending a gift.
  • Share a specific reaction to their gift or to a memory you made together at the shower.
  • Wrap things up with a closing statement of appreciation.

When put all together, this could look like: “Thank you so much for attending my shower, having you celebrate this adventure with us means so much to me. I can’t wait for you to meet our new addition, I’m sure they will look so sweet in the onesie you gave us. I am so thankful to have you in my life!”
