Elephant Baby Shower Party Venues and Locations
Similar to the old adage, “Location is everything!” for a business, the same is true for a baby shower. The perfect location will be a place that is comfortable and inviting (or has the potential to become so), while also being a spot that is ideal for the majority of the guests. Because this is an elephant baby shower theme, you might consider the following locales:
The Zoo. Many zoos have cafes, meeting areas, park-like areas or other spots that would be ideal for hosting a baby shower. Now, wouldn’t that just be perfect for an elephant baby shower?
The Park. Baby shower ideas frequently include parks for several reasons. The open, airy feel of a park encourages happiness and fun, while also providing attendees with little ones in tow a place to let the kids run without the worry of knocking anything over!
Town Hall. Renting the town hall for a few hours might seem like an unnecessary expense, but if you will have several guests attending this elephant baby shower, you might find that you will need the additional space that venues such as this offer. Town halls are especially ideal for winter baby showers, as they provide lots of space and often come equipped with full kitchens.
The Mom-to-Be’s Favorite Restaurant. Although a restaurant with an African theme would be more ideal for an elephant baby shower, many restaurants will be happy to work with you to ensure that you can decorate the party area to accentuate the theme.
Elephant Baby Shower Guest Arrival and Introduction
You can decorate everything under the sun to set the theme, but in order to keep the party lively and theme-focused; you’ve got to have activities available to keep guests active as they arrive. We’ve put together a few different ideas that will fit perfectly with an elephant baby shower.
Elephant Pillow or Stuffed Animal Signing. Today, there are lots of fabulous pillows and stuffed animals that are made to be written on with permanent markers and they will hold the color well, even after several washes. Place one on a table by the door and be sure to put up a sign to invite guests to “Let Baby know that you were here to share this special day!”
Elephant Baby Shower Keepsake Book. Every mother in attendance will want to give some advice to the mother-to-be and this is a great way to keep it all in one place for easy reference! Although there are books available specifically for the occasion, you can also make your own. Invite guests to pass the book around and leave the new mommy a tip. Note: you can also pass one around just for special messages to baby if you wish!
Pick a Card. Most baby showers involve a little something extra for those attending – namely prizes! Grab a deck or two of Bicycle Elephant Tsunami Relief Playing Cards (a percentage of this purchase goes directly to the Tsunami Relief Fund). Open one deck of cards and cut them in half. Place one half into a bowl to set aside for later. Put the other half in a bowl next to the door and tell guests to choose 2 or 3 each. The number will depend on how many guests you have and you may need to use both decks if you have a lot of guests attending. You and your guests will use these cards for a match-style game later.

Elephant Baby Shower Party Decoration
When you throw a baby shower around a theme, you’ve got to have theme-appropriate decorations to really set it off! There are several fabulous baby shower ideas when it comes to decorations, so don’t limit yourself to the ones mentioned here. Use your creativity and your guests, as well as the guest of honor, will thank you for it. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Elephant Mobiles. Every baby needs a mobile, but your elephant themed baby shower will need several! With some poster board, scissors, a hole puncher, some string and an outline, you can create several adorable mobiles that you can hang from the ceiling to set the mood.
Elephant Wall Décor. Elephant wall décor can easily be found at several home interiors stores, as well as in craft shops and online. However, you can also make your own. If you want to occupy little partygoers, cut out giant elephants from pieces of white or gray poster board and tape them to the walls of the party venue. You can alternate these with other elephant wall décor. Hang colors on strings from the walls next to them along with colors. It’s a great way to keep younger guests busy, while still supporting your elephant themed baby shower.
Elephant Centerpieces. True to theme, you can really set off your elephant baby shower with clever elephant-styled centerpieces. You can get really creative with these if you wish, creating a lush green oasis filled with mints or you can go with something simpler, such as mini elephant mobiles. You can find several different types of elephant baby shower centerpiece ideas at Baby Shower Stuff, but you can also create your own.
Elephant Baby Shower Party Crafts
Party crafts, are a fun way for guests to create a personal gift for the newborn. Here are some ideas:
- Decorate Onesies. Babies can never have enough onesies to wear. Infants and toddlers literally can change onesies multiple times a day so why not have guests decorate them for the newborn? Set out non-toxic fabric markers, fusible web, fabrics, scissors, fabric bows, etc. and let guests use their creativity to create their own personal gift for the newborn!
- Collage Keepsake Frames. Purchase several frames with a wide border. Each guest is given coordinated materials that match the nursery colors and theme, e.g. paper, fabrics, scrapbook embellishments, ribbons, buttons, etc. Ask them to help decorate the frames for the baby’s room. Encourage them to be creative and have all guests sign the back of the frame.
