Jungle theme baby shower cakes make a wonderful centerpiece.
This adorable baby shower cake is perfect for the new mom celebrating with a jungle or safari theme. The jungle animals (even a little hippo) surround the cake to make an amazing centerpiece for your party.
You could also have several little cakes – like this three some featuring a giraffe, lion and elephant. Each one could be a different flavor to add to the variety.
The elephant topper on this baby shower cake is adorable! And the cute giraffe is super sweet too. Yes, the kangaroo is generally not found in the jungle but somehow mom and joey hopped on for the ride.
Here’s a different take on a jungle theme cake – a three tiered cake featuring animal prints and jungle leaves.
Make the cake the centerpiece!
This cake is a standout and needs to be front and center. Mint green and gold are a perfect combination for a jungle shower. The decorations surrounding the cake are as creative as the cake itself.
If you like golden safari showers, there are plenty of options available. Here’s some inspiration for you to set the tone. This cake and dessert spread showcases the golden theme perfectly.
Jungle theme cookies and cupcakes – sweet as can be.
Are you a cookie baker with animal theme cookie cutters? You can make your own jungle themed cookies and decorate with colored frosting and a steady hand. If not, just head on over to etsy and get these sweet faced jungle animal cookies delivered in time for your shower. Sweet elephant, spotted giraffe, curious monkey, orange tigers, cute zebra and baby lion cookies will accent your shower perfectly!
Are these the cutest jungle cupcakes you’ve ever seen? Monkeys, tigers and zebra make their debut on chelseasmessyapron. Head on over for complete step by step instructions.
Safari and Jungle theme baby shower invitations.
Lions and tigers and so much more!
Unique jungle animals take front and center on this safari theme shower. I love the colorful toucan, the napping lion and the cougar on the prowl.
We’re wild with excitement! This is one of my most recent designs featuring playful baby safari animals. I have a swinging monkey hanging from a vine, a baby zebra, jumping lion, a sprinkling elephant and smiling giraffe all front and center. This is also available as an instant download – so you can download, edit and print on your home computer today! Can also be emailed too 🙂
Baby girl safari themed invitations
I also had a request for a “girl” version of the safari themed baby shower invitation. I added a bit of pink, some ferns and flowers and of course, a pink elephant 🙂
Super cute jungle animals hiding among the ferns. The elephant, hippo, lion and giraffe are soft watercolor versions – perfect for a gender neutral shower.
Here’s a creative touch to the lion king theme – multi colored jungle leaves surround the baby lion. And too, these are easy to customize for your own lion themed shower.
Fun jungle animals including a not too scary lion, blue elephant, spotted giraffe, hungry hippo, crazy crocodile and ready to party palm tree! Back has a repeating jungle pattern featuring the cast of safari characters.
Here’s a baby girl shower invitation featuring some jungle animals with cute flowers in their hair: a zebra, tiger, elephant and giraffe all join the party. Love the creativity!
Baby boy shower invitations
These safari animals are heading out on a hot air balloon with “It’s a boy” in the banner. So sweet!
Another “It’s a boy” themed safari invitation for your baby shower. I love the crown on the lion – so cute!
Twin elephant safari themed invitations
Is your mom to be having twins? There are plenty of designs available for the twin theme – including these adorable baby elephants.
Jungle theme baby shower decoration ideas.
There is such a variety in jungle themes – your creativity and imagination can bring your ideas to life. Whether you’re hanging palm leaves from the ceiling or adding boho accents, you can’t go wrong with this crowd pleasing theme.
The animal prints above or those shown below can be showcased at the shower on the food table, gift table, or sprinkled around the room. Then when the shower is over, off to the nursery for the baby’s wall. This is a really inexpensive way to add cute jungle decorations throughout the shower.
An adorable stuffed animal always adds sweetness to the party – like this super cute stuffed lion. Plus he would look darling in the nursery after the shower. You can find tigers, zebras and elephants too
Safari theme welcome sign
There are plenty of welcome baby flags but this one is super cute. I love the accents on the flag and the fun animals – from My Happy Party shop on etsy.
Safari theme balloons instantly set the tone with very little effort. These decorative balloons from evescraft at etsy include patterns for cheetah, tiger, zebra and giraffe.
Stuffed animals are always a great hit at a baby shower. I love this elephant rocking chair idea! Or you could also have a large giraffe at the entrance to really set the mood when guests arrive. Both also make great baby gifts once the wild one arrives!
Diaper cakes with a jungle theme
There are plenty of creative jungle theme diaper cakes on etsy but this one stands out for his simplicity and creativity. Another perfect accent for the popular golden safari baby showers.
It’s about to get wild! Featuring an ever so cute elephant, lion and giraffe, this diaper cake is sure to get the admiration of your guests.
So simple – safari themed food ideas!
How fun are these pretzel sticks with animal print patterns? You can find the basics on creating chocolate covered pretzels here. For the white chocolate, you’ll need some food coloring to create the giraffe, cheetah and tiger patterns. What’s even easier? Just order them from dalicakesweetshop and she will ship them to you!
This adorable tiger dip works perfectly for a jungle themed baby shower. Just cut up some red, orange and yellow peppers for the mane, arrange a few black olives for the face and crackers for the ears. You can use store bought dip or hummus – or if you’re feeling brave, you can create your own homemade hummus.
Ok – it really doesn’t get any easier than this to create a cute snack for your shower. Cheese cubes on a skewer with a little decorative jungle animal (or two) and a sign. These are poked into the side of a melon. Fun – and simple!
Love this pineapple palm tree! It looks pretty simple to do too – just stack up some pineapples (have a rod to hold them straight). Next add some palm leaves on the top. Lastly, surround the base with tropical fruit. So creative – and such a dramatic display!
Other fun food ideas for the party are:
Jungle Juice – fruity, flavorful and fun!
For drinks, what could be easier? Add some tropical fruit and ice to your water pitchers and you have instant jungle juice – perfect tropical drinks for the party. Super easy – and flavorful too!
Parties with a purpose!
Since you’re having an African theme, why not give the mom to be this so cute “Save Elephants from Extinction” from the Elephant Cooperation with cute mom and baby elephant. There’s also one for the kiddo with Jungle Love featuring two elephants with cute hearts. What’s more, this could be a great gift idea for the big brother or sister. Best of all, 100% of profits from the sales of the tees goes directly to protecting the gentle giants. Buy a tshirt, save an elephant. ?
There are many more charitable organizations you can showcase at your party. I love this Wild in Africa store with beautiful bracelets. What’s more, they donate 50% of all profits to the charities such as the Wild Tomorrow Fund, the Rhino Rescue project and more!.

This is such a cute saying on the favor tag – the sentiment is so sweet. It reads “Please light me up when you hear the news that baby Sawyer has made his debut. The flame will glow to celebrate little Sawyer’s arrival date.” It’s easy to do too … get your candle votives, next add some twine, punch a hole in your note card and lastly, add to your candle favors.
The Thank You Card features the golden safari animals. What’s more, there’s plenty of room inside to add your special notes.
