Elephants are cute and darling, plus they make the perfect addition to a shower! Honor the arrival of a boy or a girl with a versatile elephant baby shower theme. Get inspired with tips and all the sweet details captured by Alyssa Renee Photography!
1. Hang a Photo Garland
Short on decorations? Create an easy photo garland using baby photos of the couple, string and mini clothespins.
2. Display DIY Chalkboard Signs
Easily decorate your home or venue with chalkboard signs. Mini chalkboard signs are great for displaying the baby’s name and arrival date.
Greet guests as they enter with large chalkboard sign at the entrance.
Use medium-sized frames as lively décor. How cute is this ‘Little Peanut’ design?
3. Serve Drinks in Creative Ways
Think outside the box when serving up drinks. Tie paper party straws around baby bottles with baker’s twine and add a little charm for an extra touch! Guests can fill up their bottles with the drink of their choice.
4. Incorporate a Few Traditional Games
It isn’t a baby shower without a game or two! Baby shower games are a great way to get all guests involved, especially if there will be a few who haven’t met. Ask guests to write messages of encouragement on diapers so the new parents can get their mind off diaper changes.
Go traditional with a classic baby shower game. Place string in a small plastic bag with an insert for guests to guess Mommy’s tummy size.
Another time-honored game is “Don’t Say Baby.” Create a pretty display by printing out a graphic with the description of the game. Place it in a frame, glue ribbon to the edge, and pin mini clothespins along the ribbon.
5. Showcase An Elegant Cake
6. Hand Out Charming Cookie Favors
As guests leave, give them adorable elephant cookies personalized with baby’s name.
