Giraffe Baby Shower


The giraffe theme is very popular and it’s popularity is for good reason.  Giraffes are very gender neutral.  You can use the natural brown shades of giraffe and have a natural, neutral color palette for the shower.  On the other hand, the browns and tans also play very well with lots of different colors.  You can use giraffes and giraffe print with most colors and keep the shower gender neutral or suited for either a girl or boy.

Giraffe baby showers are easy to decorate because you can use giraffes, giraffe print, or both.  Since this theme is popular, there are so many products on the market that could be perfect for your shower.  Our four favorite places to use the shower theme are in the decorations, favors, food, and invitations.  Check out the links below to get some ideas on how to use giraffes or giraffe print with the shower you’re throwing.

giraffe baby shower decorations

Giraffe decorations can either feature the actual giraffe animal or giraffe print.  Most decorations are in the brown/tan/yellow color palette, but you can use different colors throughout the shower to accent these neutrals.  If you’re going to buy reusable decorations (like paper lanterns, plush animals, etc) be sure to check with the mommy-to-be to see if she’d like to use some of the decor in the new baby’s nursery!

giraffe baby shower favors

Favors are a great place to use the shower theme because they are usually the last impression for your guests.  You can give giraffe shaped cookies or use printed wrappers for cupcakes, but the easiest way to use the theme with favors is with the packaging.  There are several different favor bags that could be perfect for your shower.  You can also use a favor tag that features the theme and be free to give whatever favor you want.  We’ve provided a free printable favor tag that you can use.

giraffe baby shower food

The food is sometimes a hard place to use a shower theme.  We certainly don’t recommend sacrificing flavor in order to have every appetizer and treat fit the theme. However, there are some food items that would be a great accent to the food table at a giraffe baby shower.  You can make (or buy) a giraffe cake or use giraffe themed packaging to hold the food.  An easy way to include the theme on the food table is to use tent labels – we’ve provided some blank giraffe print labels that you can print and use.

This giant plush giraffe would be an awesome gift for a giraffe baby shower.  It could double as decor during the shower and be a stuffed animal the baby would love for years.  Standing at 5 feet tall, this giraffe is not cheap so make sure the mommy-to-be would want it in the nursery before buying.
