25+ Elephant Baby Shower Planning Ideas

Elephants are known to bring good luck and cheer. The welcoming of a baby is a time of joy and a wonderful reason to celebrate. If you’ve been thinking about hosting an elephant baby shower, there are many ways to incorporate this sweet and gentle animal.

There are a lot of elephant baby shower ideas you can choose from. Blue and pink hues in combination with gray and silver tones are perfect for creating a tender baby look with an elegant touch.

Cute droplets, clouds and plush animals make for an adorable dessert table or baby shower photo backdrop. You can also create a themed garland made out of paper elephants if you are feeling extra crafty.

Elephant Baby Shower Invitations


Choosing your baby shower invites is the first step in setting the tone for the rest of the party. Elephant invites come in a variety of colors and include cute illustrations of an elephant standing alone or together with other jungle animals.

Sending the invitations ahead of time will allow guests to take a peek into the theme of the party and they can choose baby gifts based on your color choices and the gender of the baby.  

Elephant Baby Shower Decorations

Elephant baby shower centerpieces and decorations can be simple and elegant without breaking the bank. A personalized vase that holds soft and neutral flowers is a sweet touch. You can also choose to add cute succulents, photo frames and baby shoes along with your decor, which can later be given to the parents-to-be.

Another creative idea is to hang wall art of baby elephants throughout the room, cute baby quotes or onesies hanging from a string, which can later be placed in the baby’s nursery.

Elephant Baby Shower Cakes and Desserts


While baby shower cakes are beautiful, there are other simple ways to incorporate your theme by using the same color scheme. Cupcakes, cookies and even donuts in your theme’s colors can add that special flair without being too costly.
