Safari baby shower ideas

a “wild” party by throwing a
Safari Baby Shower

A safari baby shower or any animal baby shower theme is
perfect for a mom-to-be who loves the outdoors, wildlife, and cute,
cuddly animals. Here are some ideas that will bring this party to life.


Start the invitation with something like “Please join us for a Safari
Baby Shower!” Use various pictures of trees, leaves and baby animals
for your background.

For this theme, you can either select a color scheme, or have
multi-colored decorations. You want to definitely have brown and green
in your colors in order to have that “safari” feel, but you can easily
incorporate pink, blue or any other color into your decorations. These
decorating ideas will be based on a multi-colored scheme.
