Fun Safari Baby Shower Theme to Welcome the New Family Member
The pending arrival or birth of a child is an occasion that calls for a celebration to cheer the parents. For that, a baby shower is usually thrown practically by anyone except the mum and dad to avoid the impression that they’re asking for gifts.
A baby shower can be planned any time after the news of conception is confirmed, but most mums-to-be are inclined to appreciate a shower when she’s already touting a big, round belly. There are many ideas to use if you want to host a baby shower, including a safari theme that guarantees a roaring good time for the baby’s parents and invited guests.
Party Animals in Attendance
It’s fairly easy to put together a safari baby shower. There are a number of party stores, both near you and online, selling fun and festive party supplies essential in transforming an area into a jungle of party animals. A safari theme consists of adorable baby lions, tigers, elephants, monkeys, and other wildlife elements.
Get Guests to Join the Safari
But, what’s a safari without the hunters? You need a matching invitation that spells out the details and theme of the party to bring in the hunters. Let them take a peek of what to expect when they join the safari.
These are ways to get the safari-themed invitation. One way is to make your own handmade invitations using card stock, animal rubber stamps, stickers, and other accessories. Create a leaf border or put an image of the animal then write the details with your safari-related verse, such as: “Pack your equipment around the new baby! Wear your best safari attire to join the expedition.” To make things easy, you can also buy ready-made invitations from an online or a local store. Send out these invitations early with RSVP instructions.
Get It Going with Theme Decorations
Every themed party needs decorations. Create a throne for the parents-to-be as head of the expedition. Bring in some potted Ficus or palm trees and use real tree branches to decorate the area. Twist few rolls of crepe paper and hang them from the ceiling to make them appear like vines. Finish up by filling the place with stuffed big game hunts that can be ordered in bulk. The new mother can use them in decorating the nursery after the party has ended.
For the table decorations, consider using the same safari theme party ware with jungle animal designs. Everyone is sure to have a great time feasting on safari dishes as they sit near their best animal buddy while some jungle songs and animal sounds play in the background.
At the end of the safari baby shower, hand over Thank You cards and party favors in the same design to every hunter in attendance. All these will get them talking until the next day; all successful parties are not easily forgotten.
