Cutest Animal Baby Shower Themes

An animal theme is perfect for a boy, girl, or gender-neutral baby shower. From jungle animals to woodland creatures, this baby shower theme will win over any mom-to-be. We’ve put together a list of the cutest animal baby shower themes and a few ideas for how to go about planning. Let your creativity shine as you plan the perfect day!

Owl themed baby shower: An owl baby shower has become increasingly popular, and there’s no guessing why! Plan the cutest baby shower based around woodland creatures for a truly memorable day. Start with the invitation – we’re loving this fox and owl online invitation inspired by a popular Boppy® print! You can include phrasing such as “Look whoo’s having a baby!” to really tie in the theme. Carry the color scheme over with balloons, streamers, and table settings. Solid color party supplies are a great, easy way to coordinate everything without spending a fortune on custom items. Grab the coordinating Boppy® Feeding & Infant Support Pillow as a perfectly matched baby shower gift!

Sea creature themed baby shower: Transport baby shower guests into the deep blue sea with a fun sea creature theme! Use shades of blue to give it an underwater feel, with bright pops of color like orange and green. Create custom table centerpieces each highlighting a different sea creature. Some cute ideas are a friendly octopus, brightly colored fish, or an adorable baby whale! Don’t forget to pick up a coordinating Boppy® Feeding & Infant Support Pillow for the perfect baby shower gift.

Elephant themed baby shower​: These lovable giants are the star of this theme! Use several shades of gray throughout the event space to really tie the theme together. Easily personalize with added pops of color if the mom-to-be knows if she’s having a boy or a girl (or keep it gray for an easy gender neutral theme!). Hang streamers from floor to ceiling behind the guest of honor’s seat to give her the special attention she deserves. Serve themed snacks such as sandwiches cut into elephant shapes with a cookie cutter, and end it with cupcakes decorated with elephant faces! Set the tone for the day with a matching elephant baby shower online invitation. Still looking for that perfect baby shower gift idea? Grab a coordinating Boppy® Feeding & Infant Support Pillow with the matching print.

Jungle themed baby shower: Go wild with a jungle themed baby shower! Set the tone for the day with an online invitation featuring the cuddliest jungle animals around. Carry the theme throughout with games, décor, menu items and more! Treat guests to something sweet with a festive candy buffet. Fill several different shaped glass containers with candies of all types and colors! Create cute labels for each container such as “Lion Lollipops”, “Monkey Marshmallows”, “Tiger Taffy” and “Giraffe Jelly Beans.” Let guests take home their sweets in animal-print goodie bags! We love the coordinating Boppy® Feeding & Infant Support Pillow for an expertly matched baby shower gift!
