1. Woodland Animals

The Theme

Picture cute little foxes, bears, deer, and squirrels peaking out from behind a stand of birch trees. Not only does a perfect woodland animals baby shower feature the animals of the woods, but they also work best when you feature trees and leaves in the décor design as well. That delicate wooded aesthetic will turn this baby shower from boring to chic.

3. Safari Animals

The Theme

Safari animals are incredibly popular when it comes to baby shower themes and nursery décor--and for good reason. Elephants, lions, and hippos are all larger than life and add a bit of the spectacular to the event. For décor, go for soft pastels, large leaf centerpieces, and twinkle lights to compliment the safari animal decorations.
