Jungle Theme Baby Shower

Baby Shower Invite

This JUNGLE Themed baby shower was also put on by a group of church ladies. Myself & a friend were in charge of decorations and delegated the food, games, & ect out. We went with the jungle theme because that was what the baby’s nursery was decorated in and we wanted the mom to be able to use the shower decorations in the room. 027

013

Almost all the decorations, plates, ect were ordered from Oriental Trading online.

Including these adorable little stuffed animals! I just taped two back to back & stuck on the table for decoration.

014

We also made these little diaper centerpieces for the tables….So SIMPLE & cute.

015 016 017

It’s SO SIMPLE yet very effective to add little details with coordinating ribbon & stickers/foam cutouts….like we did on this little pail to hold the pencils! And we TAPED everything rather than glue it..so they could be taken off & reused!

018 019 020 021 022

These lollipops were also from Oriental Trading. 023

The cake design & embellishments were also from OT. We just ordered an all white cake & added them!024 025

A church friend made the mom this cute diaper cake & it made an adorable decoration on the cake table!026 027

We also had a kid’s table set up with colors & themed activity sheets to keep the littles busy.032

Monkey Baby Shower

Baby Shower Invite

This was a small shower given by a group of ladies from church. I was in charge of a few things. OBVI not the cake or table cloth LOL. There really was no “theme” but you know everything I did I had to go by kinda my own theme.044

The cake was adorable…but ya know I would have made it match my self-imposed theme! Ha!

045 046

Just a little table decoration.

047 048 049 050 051

I kind of threw this little clothes line decoration together at the last minute. I made the shirts, onesie, & signs myself.

052

These letters & babies I printed off & cut out to hang..

053

The little monkey’s I used to help embellish everything were from the scrapbook section at Hobby Lobby.

054

This scrapbook paper was also from Hobby Lobby…I printed the Bible verse & glued on.

The whole theme was centered around these baby fairies…I forget what they are called. This shower was about 7 years ago!

The only game I remember playing (but don’t have a picture of) is where you have guests drink from a baby bottle and race to see who can drink the juice first. I remember my mother-n-law cheating and taking the lid off.  ALWAYS GLUE ON THE LIDS. I’m sure we played the diaper ‘guess what the baby ate’ game…but like I said..this was over 7 years ago!

This was almost NINE years ago…before Pinterest, digital invites, & unlimited internet resources! I think everyone did a great job! Everything was SO CUTE! My first shower that muh sistas threw me…was kind of a pink gingham theme b/c that’s what Daynie Muffin’s crib bedding was.

How the baby was made.   THIS IS MY FAVORITE!!!

IMG_0382

Who brought Pooh?

Have each person bring a children’s book that fits her personality. The mom-to-be guesses who brought each book. If she is right, the person gets a prize. The best part of this game is that the new mom gets to keep all the books.

winnie-the-pooh-poohs-honey-adventure-disney-book-photo-800x800-dcp-021

 

Who’s Who?

Have all the guests bring a baby picture of themselves. Place pictures around party with a number and have guests go around and guess who they are.

baby-surprise

 

Be my baby. 

See which guest can come up with the most songs containing the word ‘baby.’ If none of the guests are familiar with a certain song, the person who listed it must sing some of it to get credit.
