With all the cuddly creatures out there, animal themes are a must for baby showers. Pick an animal theme and deck out the party in cute little baby versions for the décor, party favors, and baby gifts. Not sure what theme to choose? Check out our top three favorite baby shower animal themes.
1. Woodland Animals
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.
Luckily, there are cuddly versions of everyone's favorite woodland creatures. Whether as a traditional owl stuffed animal or a fox-shaped toddler chair, you've got a plethora of gifting options. Pair these with a practical gift like a pack of infant diapers and the new parents will be thanking you.
2. Nautical Animals
Nothing beats the magic of the sea. A proper nautical animals theme features your favorite sea creatures like whales, sharks, and seashells. Pair these fun animals with a surf-inspired color scheme of white, sand, and delicate shades of blue.
There are several sea animals that make perfect baby gifts for a nautical shower. Embrace whales with a baby blanket or cute little sun hat. If the kings of the sea are a favorite, try a shark-themed gift set.
3. Safari Animals
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.
The best baby gifts are both useful for the parents and fun for the baby. For instance, a cuddly lion hooded towel dries off Baby after bath time while letting them be cute and cozy. Other fun gift ideas in the safari animals theme include a hippo plush gift set and an elephant bank for the nursery.
