If you’re not sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place! We’re here to guide you through the process of planning the perfect Jungle-Themed Baby Shower that will be both memorable and budget-friendly.
Read on to discover our lists of food and drink ideas, invitations, decorations, games, and party favors that are cute, creative, and cost-effective. So take a page out of our book and let us help you organize an event everyone will go “wild” over!
When to Throw a Jungle Baby Shower
The ideal season to throw a jungle baby shower would be late spring and summer, especially if you’re able to organize the event outdoors. You’re already surrounded by green, so you can often use the natural landscape as a decoration in and of itself.
Jungle-themed baby showers aren’t just for the summer months, however. If you happen to live in a warmer climate all year round, you’re not really limited by the season!
After all, a region that’s more like a desert (think Arizona or New Mexico) would be the perfect place for a jungle safari-themed party.
We always say that it comes down to what the expecting momma wants. If she’s set on a jungle baby shower in the dead of winter, you bet you’re going to make that happen for her!
Example Party Schedule
While you don’t have to have a schedule for a baby shower, we like to have a general idea of what will happen throughout the day.
Here’s a sample schedule for a fall baby shower:
1-1:30 pm – Guests arrive and mingle
1:30 – 2 pm – Shower Hostess says a few words and outlines what to expect with when you’re planning food, games and gift opening. This would also be a good time to do a warm up game, like our favorite baby scavenger hunt. This game can help other guests meet each other. If you’re doing a diaper raffle, we recommend introducing it at this time so guests have time to drop off their gift and fill out any raffle entries.
2 – 3 pm – Food and drinks are available
3-4 pm – Baby shower gift opening and diaper raffle. We like to sprinkle raffle prizes in between gifts to keep guests engaged and entertained.
If you’re having part of your shower virtual, this is a great time to have guests log into Zoom!
4-5 pm – Final games and goodbyes
