Giraffe Themed Baby Shower Ideas

ideas for giraffe themed baby shower.

My most recent styling project for Celebrations’ website was to create ideas for a Giraffe themed baby shower based on an adorable modern invitation from Pear Tree Greetings. I loved the colors I had to work with which were aqua, orange, and yellow. The idea was to design a luncheon complete with table setting, a menu & recipes, dessert, and shower activity.

Here are some photos from the shoot where you can see how I tied the colors, the giraffe theme, and the ‘baby’ elements all together….

Giraffe Themed Baby Shower

  • You can see how I set the table to coordinate with the invitation. That’s a good rule of thumb to follow so you create one continuous theme from beginning to end.
  • Subtle baby touches are added in the napkin wraps secured with a diaper pin, and baby food jars used to serve dessert parfaits.
  • A light luncheon is served with pressed ciabatta sandwiches, strawberry spinach salad, and pasta salad. Even the drink matches our color scheme.
  • A memory-making activity is provided where the guests can decorate a onesie for baby. These make a lovely keepsake item for the mom.
