One of our favorite and most popular baby shower invitations is Wild Arrival From The Jungle, so we decided to throw a baby shower to show you all the different safari baby shower ideas we could come up with using the jungle animal theme. We held the party in an atrium of our building, which was filled with lush plants and perfect for a jungle theme.
We did a little hunting and found this fantastic green dresser at our local thrift store. It fit in so well in our little jungle we decided to use it as our dessert table and decorated it with a burlap table runner down the middle. We used a mixture of lanterns and tissue poms hanging above it to make it our focal point, along with garland made from our Jungle Table Decor.
Our new baby shower decorations are oh-so adorable and versatile to use when planning a baby shower. We put together our top 5 baby shower decoration ideas using different versions of the table decor from Pear Tree Greetings! But we’re always coming up with new ways to use them, so don’t be surprised if we have a new ‘Top 5′ every week!
1. Cake topper. Our Jungle Table Decor was used as an accent for this delicious polka dotted cake. We hot-glued our table decor to wooden skewers and placed them at staggered heights on top of the cake as a fun decoration to this baby shower.
2. Table decor. Genius, right? Why not use our party decorations as table decor? That’s what our designer, Michelle, did for her friend’s baby shower. She used our Alphabet Animals design and sprinkled it over the gift tables, dessert tables and food tables. It’s the perfect personalized addition to any baby shower!
Owls are the latest craze in baby themes, and these owl baby shower ideas at celebrations.com take full advantage of the owl’s inherent cuteness. Inspired by our Whimsical Hoot Owl Baby Shower Invitations, this party borrows the owl motif and color palette to create a modern, gender neutral baby shower theme.
An orange and white floral fabric became the base layer of color on the guest table, with white, green and orange place settings. Napkin holders were created from card stock and ribbon, topped with our Whimsical Hoot Baby Shower Favor Stickers. A centerpiece of orange and yellow flowers with a white ceramic vase and thrift store owl tied the colors together, along with a green and orange candy filled baby bottle holding the invitation.
The only thing more fun than going to a baby shower is planning one for a friend! It’s just soooo fun to pick a theme, and come up with creative ideas for food and decorations. But, first have you picked out the baby shower invitations? The baby shower invitation wording, colors and theme can go a long way towards setting the mood for your shower.
Not only will it help you with decorating ideas, but the baby shower invitation wording can let your guests know what the mom-to-be is thinking about for nursery colors, what she might need in the way of baby gifts, where she is registered, or whether you’re planning any special activities they need to prepare for. Of course, there are a few must-haves when it comes to baby shower invitation wording:
- host’s name and address
- date of party
- start and end times
- contact info for RSVP
- gift registry information if mom-to-be wants to include it
- anything else you’d like guests to bring
Lastly, keep it fun. There are lots of ways to say, “You’re invited to a Baby Shower.” Here are a few baby shower invitation wording ideas that will get your shower off to the most adorable start.
Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Invitations — Retro Rubber Duck Toy
I am so excited to share a few photos and ideas from my best friend’s baby shower! I had fun planning the shower with her sister Liz, who flew in from California, and her sister-in-law, Shawna, from southern Minnesota. We thought it would be fun to have the baby shower for both Mom and Dad-to-be, so it turned into a big party for family and friends.
We wanted to involve Lisa and Sam, the parents-to-be, in the planning so to get ideas we asked them to pick out their favorite three baby shower invitations from our collection. Their top three were Alphabet Animals, Personalized Poster or Togetherness. Lisa and Sam are having a girl, but aren’t flooding everything in pink. They provided us with material swatches that are going to be included in the nursery. We thought the Alphabet Animals Baby Shower Invitations would be a perfect match! The invites were sent out in fuchsia colored envelopes, and we used the Alphabet Animals address labels to make them even more festive.
There were extra invites, so I created some paper banners by cutting and sewing flags together. I also made baby advice cards that doubled as a guest book for the party. I used rubber stamps to write out “baby advice” on each card. Liz put together some salt-water-taffy pinwheels, and we attached Alphabet Animals gift tags to them for party favors. Continue reading
