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 baby shower cake

Planning a safari-themed baby shower and wondering about the perfect safari baby shower cake? Look no further! In this guide, we’ll help you navigate the jungle of options and find the best safari baby shower cake that suits your celebration.

Choosing the Perfect Safari Baby Shower Cake 

Picking the best safari baby shower cake is an exciting part of planning your celebration. To start off straightforward, consider the theme, flavors, and size that match your preferences. Your ideal cake should align with the safari theme and taste delicious. 

The first step is to think about the theme. Opt for designs that reflect the jungle atmosphere , featuring cute animals and vibrant colors. Consider the mom-to-be’s favorite flavors, ensuring the cake is not just visually appealing but also a delight to the taste buds. Additionally, take into account the number of guests to determine the appropriate size.

Safari-themed cakes offer a wide range of creative options . From adorable animal-shaped decorations to jungle landscapes, there’s a cake design to suit every preference. Think about incorporating safari animal cake ideas and elements like palm trees, wild animals, or baby safari characters for a playful touch. Keep in mind that simplicity can be key – sometimes, less is more when it comes to capturing the essence of a safari.

Budgeting for Your Safari Baby Shower Cake

When it comes to deciding how much to spend on a safari baby shower cake, it primarily depends on your overall budget for the celebration . Consider setting aside a reasonable amount specifically for the cake, ensuring it aligns with your financial plans for the event. 

To determine your cake budget, start by evaluating the overall budget you’ve allocated for the baby shower. Once you have a clear idea of the total funds available, decide on a reasonable percentage to allocate for the cake. A good rule of thumb is to earmark around 10-15% of your total budget for the cake, taking into account other expenses such as decorations, venue, and favors.

In the broader discussion, it’s essential to strike a balance between your desire for a stunning safari-themed cake and the financial resources at your disposal. While elaborate cake designs may be visually appealing, there are cost-effective options that still capture the essence of the safari theme. Communicate openly with local bakeries, providing them with your budget constraints, and explore creative yet budget-friendly designs.

Moreover, consider the number of guests when planning your cake budget. A larger guest list may require a bigger cake, impacting the overall cost. To make the most of your budget, opt for a well-designed cake that not only complements the theme but also caters to the expected number of attendees.

Safari Cakes For Baby Showers: 3 Super Ideas You Don’t Want To Miss

Safari Cakes For Baby Showers: 3 Super Ideas You Don't Want To Miss

Sharing is caring!

Last Updated on February 18, 2023

Looking for some ideas for safari cakes for baby showers? Take a look at this article!

Honestly, there is no better reason to get together than to celebrate a little human being who is about to come into this world. Babies are so cute, soft and have the most beautiful baby scent that I’m literally melting as I write this.

So, regardless of whether you are hosting a baby shower or gathering with friends at a potluck, take a look at this article to get the most unique safari cakes for baby showers ideas. I can’t wait to get into the details.

How To Get Started?

The safari theme in itself is quite fun and should evoke a feeling of happiness and excitement in the guests for all of the adventures that a new baby will bring, not only to the parents but also to the whole community. That is exactly why we suggest you choose one or even several statement lines that will run through the entire showering, from wall decorations to cakes and invitations.

Some of our all-time favorites include the following :

“The adventure begins!”

“The pack is getting bigger!”

“Welcome new baby to the jungle!”

“It’s about to get wild!”

Do you have any ideas of your own that you would like to share with us? Well, it sounds great, don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments section below. We look forward to reading your suggestions.

Safari Cakes For Baby Showers

Safari cakes are among the most popular trends not only for baby showers but for all kinds of gatherings and special occasions. When you think about it, it is not so strange because many elements fit perfectly into this overall concept. For example, you can’t go wrong if you put animal cake toppers, edible colorful splatter, fondant animals, and leaves on the cake.

Is there anyone who can say that all this is old-fashioned or doesn’t like it? I have never met such a person. All the people I’m surrounded by are simply crazy about a safari-themed baby shower cake, and I hope that together we can pass that madness on to you, our dear reader.

Check out my favorite safari cake ideas below. I hope you will fall in love with at least one of them, although I think you will love each one individually because they are so unique.

Choose the finish

When it comes to safari cakes for baby showers, the most important thing is to choose what finish you want it to have. Accordingly, you can choose between a naked, semi-naked, or fully-covered cake. This isn’t just an unimportant step that you can skip, as it has an impact in so many aspects, from the price to the style of decoration, the texture and freshness of the cake, allergens, and dietary requirements, and much more.

Safari Cake Ideas

Let’s finally get to the point!

Pink and gold safari cake

A cute little girl is coming to your tribe? We are so glad to hear that! If you want to treat yourself or your friend who will soon give birth to a wonderful baby girl, I think you won’t go wrong if you choose a combination of pink and gold details.

For example, a cake can be super simple on the outside, bare without fondant, or some super heavy frosting because you know what they say, “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”. Don’t shy away from these types of cakes as they are usually baked and layered with many types of fillings to add flavor and moistness.

Furthermore, in order to keep everything in the spirit of the theme of the party, you can decorate it with lion, giraffe, zebra, and baby elephant figurines. These figurines can wear crowns made from a combination of pink and gold flowers and green foliage. Additionally, you can put a pom pom garland and/or mini presents stacked together and tied with a ribbon bow, which will also be a combination of green, pink, and gold.

pink and gold safari cake

Tall jungle cake

After you started making a list of people you want to invite to this get-together, you realized that there will be more of you than you originally thought. We have got you covered! The best thing you can do is get a two-tiered cake. Besides, there will be enough for all the guests, so you can go with the theme.

Speaking of jungle theme baby shower cakes, try to imagine the following: The bottom layer of the cake is a super juicy chocolate sponge cake with chocolate filling, and the top layer is made of pillowy soft crumb and creamy vanilla buttercream. Can it get any better than this? – Probably not!

You can decorate the cake by stenciling it with royal icing or whipped cream, fondant animals, and animal-printed chocolate balls. Ingenious!

Safari experience with edible leaves

If you are thinking about making or purchasing safari cakes for baby showers, we have a great idea for you.

Namely, things don’t have to be complicated at all. For example, if you’re expecting a girl, you can opt for a classic cake like the White Cake with Berry-Swiss Meringue Buttercream (it’s pink on the inside). On the other hand, if you’re expecting a boy, you don’t need to go beyond a simple frosted ombre cake with buttercream or a cake filled with lollies (it’s blue on the inside).

As for the decoration, all you have to do is make the cake, cover it with frosting, and decorate it with store-bought jungle leaves, sprinkles, and pearls. Trust me, you can buy or order these decorations online for less than $8, and they can make your cake look like you bought it at the most expensive cake shop in town.

To Round Up

When you think about it, no party is complete without a cake to mark the occasion, right? The same applies when it comes to the imminent arrival of the youngest in your tribe. With a little creativity, effort, and time, it is really possible to make the most delicious and appealing safari cakes for baby showers.

We hope you find these ideas useful. I tried to make them modern, unique, and suitable for every skill level.

Jungle Baby Shower Cake Inspiration

Slow the train down, though…because I get it…maybe you’re not crafty. I am with you. Sometimes I don’t like to make stuff. It’s ok.

Too much stuff to do or no energy to create–I. Get. It.

And so, to help you out–if you’re in that place right now, here’s a few awesome jungle themed diaper cakes that you can just have delivered to the party.

Necessary Materials to Make a Baby Shower Cake with a Jungle Theme:

Ok. So, if you’re like “nah, I’ll make one” I’m also with you–making a diaper cake doesn’t have to be hard. Just 20-ish minutes from start to finish, right?! So, to make a standard diaper cake, you just need a handful of things:

  • Diapers  (obviously)
  • 12-inch Cake Plate
  • Rubber Bands
  • You may also want a couple of receiving blankets, but they’re not necessary–you see plenty of diaper cakes without them.

To personalize my jungle diaper cake, I also grabbed a few little things to add that “final touch”.

  • A baby giraffe stuffie
  • Some baby lotion or shampoo
  • A cute onesie

Fun Jungle Baby Shower Decorations:

So, I went overboard, of course, and made a whole coordinated set of decorations and more that goes with this adorable jungle diaper cake. And you can find each of the coordinated items below:

  • Jungle Baby Shower Games
  • Jungle Themed Shower Decoration Pieces  (the mini-banner, big banner, cupcake toppers, bow centerpiece and table scatter)
  • Printable Jungle Baby Shower Invitations

Tips and Tricks to Make a Jungle Diaper Cake:

Because I’ve made a few diaper cakes in my time, I have a few tips for making them right the first time.

  • If you have leftover diapers, don’t panic! Just make a fourth tier for the diaper cake or toss them in a gift bag for the mom-to-be.
  • Lumpy sides on your diaper cake? No worries. Add a few rubber bands to tighten it all up. Or, wrap some ribbon snugly around the center of your diaper cake in order to hide the lumps.
  • Add a bit of loose tulle under your diaper cake to hide the cake plate.

Jut How Many Diapers Do You Need to Make a Diaper Cake?

Although it sounds like a lot of diapers, basically, to make a simple 3-tier diaper cake, you really don’t need to many. Here’s what I used:

  • 1 Small Package Newborn Size Diapers – about 20
  • 1 Large Package Size 1 Diapers – about 75

Jungle Themed Baby Shower Diaper Cake

Just a few minutes and you have the most fun little centerpiece for your jungle themed baby shower--a fun jungle baby shower diaper cake!

  • 1 Small Package Newborn Size Diapers (about 20)
  • 1 Medium Package Size 1 Diapers (about 75)
  • Graduated Cake Pans (size 6, 8 and 9 1/2)
  • 12-inch Cake Board/Plate
  • 12-24 Large Rubber Bands
  • 1 Receiving Blanket
  • 1 Baby Blanket
  • 1 Giraffe Stuffed Animal for a Diaper Cake Topper
  • 1 Cardboard Tube (paper towel roll), optional
  • 2 Baby Socks, optional
  • 3 Baby Onesies, optional
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Tape, optional


  • Remove the diapers from their packaging.
  • Stack the newborn sized diapers 3-4 at a time, fanning them out horizontally and forming a spiral, fit inside the smallest cake pan.
  • Fill the cake pan with the diapers completely, then wrap a rubber band around them, securing them in the shape of the pan.
  • Remove the cake pan and set aside the roll of diapers.
  • Repeat creating a roll of diapers using the size 1 diapers in both the second largest and largest cake pans.
  • Place the largest diaper roll on top of the cake board/plate. Optional: tape this in place--however, be aware that this could damage the diapers.
  • Wrap the baby blanket around the largest diaper roll, folding the blanket to only be as wide as the diapers are tall.
  • Wrap a rubber band around the baby blanket, securing it in place around the diaper roll.
  • Fan the tutu out on top of the largest diaper roll, spreading it out neatly.
  • Place the second largest diaper roll on top of the tutu.
  • Wrap the receiving blanket around the second largest diaper roll, folding the blanket to only be as wide as the diapers are tall.
  • Place the smallest diaper roll on top of the second largest.
  • Wrap the receiving blanket around the smallest diaper roll, folding the blanket to only be as wide as the diapers are tall.
  • Wrap a rubber band around the receiving blanket, securing it in place around the diaper roll.
  • To hide the rubber bands, wrap a ribbon around the diaper rolls, hot gluing or taping them in place. To avoid damaging a diaper, hot glue only ribbon-to-ribbon.
  • Add giraffe stuffed animal topper.
  • Hot glue paper roses onto the ribbons, stacking them carefully so as not to get the hot glue on the blankets or diapers.
  • Decorate as desired. I added a onesie hanging off the top tier, some baby gear and a couple of sock/onesie cupcakes. To make the sock/onesie cupcakes, just fold the onesies in half, then roll them up, with an inside-out sock in the middle. Then, when the onesie is rolled tightly, fold the sock up around the onesie to secure it in place.

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 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 Candle

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

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

safari rice krispy

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

safari 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: decorations, cakes, and more


By HEATHER LEE | Last Updated: May 17, 2022

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

  • 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

Jungle Animal Sketchbook by Alethea and Ruth

  • 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

Camouflage Warriors by Grae

  • 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

Baby Tiger by Vivian Yiwing

  • 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

Baby Animal Giraffe by Cass Loh

  • 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 safari theme should be full of fun and get guests excited for all of the adventures that a new baby will bring. So get playful with your invitation wording ! Here are a few ideas:

  • “The Adventure Begins”
  • “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.

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.

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.


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.

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 by Lori Wemple

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.

  • 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 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 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.

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.

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!

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 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!”

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 theme baby shower cake ideas

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.

safari theme baby shower cake ideas

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.

Click here to read about How to make a Baby Shower backdrop .

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.

Check out our post here for easy instructions for How to make a DIY balloon arch.

safari theme baby shower cake ideas

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.

safari theme baby shower cake ideas

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.

Read about how to make an amazing Baby Shower dessert table here.

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.

safari theme baby shower cake ideas

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 theme baby shower cake ideas

  • 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.

Safari Baby Shower: 12 Ideas For Your African Safari Themed Shower

A safari baby shower theme is a great way to bring playfulness to your baby shower.

I have explored the plains of the world wide web to find you the perfect party ideas for your shower.

Animal treats, safari props, and khaki accessories are just a few of the essentials you’ll find listed below.

Safari Baby Shower Food Ideas

The food table is a great place to amp up the safari shower theme.

An imaginative way to display your food is to label each appetizer as a food that a certain safari animal would eat.

Below are some fun examples of this.

Get creative!

  • Turn everyone’s favorite pretzel rods into sweet and salty “tiger tails” for your guests to snack on.
  • Throw together a display of “hungry hippo dip” and “cheetos for cheetahs” like this avid party planner did in this blog post .
  • Serve up a nostalgic tray of animal crackers as “giraffe snacks” in these festive leaf dishes
  • Do it yourself “monkey treats” are easily crafted with candy bananas and a few cheap little supplies. This blog post will teach you how to make them. Alternatively, you could choose to play around with banana pudding cups for an inspired version of monkey treats.
  • Take a trek through the lion’s den to gather up these “lion’s cub-cakes”. Cupcakes are a baby shower staple. Check out these adorable  safari cupcake toppers !
  • Display your “zebra pops” on a bed of green tissue resembling the safari grasslands. Cake pops are a splendid treat that will please every baby shower guest with a sweet tooth. The cake pop photos below are borrowed from this blog post .
  • Your baby shower attendees will need a spot to cool off. Lead them to the “watering hole” – a cute and inexpensive hydration station for your guests – by placing a bunch of water bottles in a massive metal tub/bucket ( just like this one ). To make this idea special, wrap each water bottle with animal print tape! This idea was borrowed from a blogger who hosted a summer safari baby shower of her own. Check out these safari print tapes  on Amazon.
  • Feed your baby shower guests Nutter Butter cookies in these leaf dishes . Label the dish as “elephant cookies”.
