A baby elephant theme is such a cute idea for a baby shower. It’s a theme that is gender neutral and it can be mixed with additional themes such as a Circus Elephant; Thai Elephant or Jungle Elephant. Here I’ll share general elephant baby shower ideas for a baby girl that can easily be modified for a shower for a little boy. All of the printable party supplies featured here are by Just a Little Sparkle.
Elephant Baby Shower – Invitations:
Elephants love peanuts so an elephant baby shower could include wording like “our little peanut”. We all know that elephants have really big feet so a cute twist on an elephant invitation would be to talk about your child’s tiny toes. There are many ways to incorporate cute wording into your invitation or you could stay cute & simple with elephant images on the invitation.
Elephant Baby Shower – Decorations:
For any type of elephant theme, grey is an excellent accent color. For a baby shower for a little girl, grey and pink colors can be incorporated through a banner, tablecloth, balloons, backdrop, tissue balls, napkins, utensils and more. You can also use these colors in a variety of prints like floral, chevron, polka dots, stripes and more.
The printable cupcake circles (featured in this party package) can be used in a variety of different ways such as:
- Pair the circle with a ribbon and create napkin rings.
- A thin strip of patterned paper and a cupcake circle can be placed around mason jars filled with pink lemonade.
- Using a single hole punch, punch a hole in the top and bottom or the circle and then thread a paper straw through it for cake pops or drinking straws.
- Use double-sided tape to attach the circles to disposable food containers like plastic appetizer cups, push pops, or take-out containers
- Print some on sticker paper and use these as a seal on the invitation envelopes.
Candy vases and porcelain cake trays are beautiful decor pieces that you can use again and again at parties.
Elephant Baby Shower – Food & Drinks:
For an elephant baby shower theme, you could incorporate items such as circus-themed, Thai or tropical. Some delicious ideas include:
- Marshmallow peanuts
- Pink cake pops with peppermint extract in the cake mix
- Spring rolls in a Thai sauce
- Coconut flavored cupcakes
- Elephant ears (large pieces of deep fried dough sprinkled with icing sugar)
Pink lemonade in mason jars is a cute idea for a baby shower for a girl. Other ideas include sparkling juice in champagne glasses or a tropical juice bar.
Elephant Baby Shower – Favors:
I always prefer food or practical items for party favors. For an elephant themed shower you could include small takeout boxes of a tropical trail mix (chocolate macaroons, dried pineapple, peanuts, shredded coconut, etc.).
