Have a best friend who is expecting a baby? Why not throw her an unforgettable baby shower that she’ll love? It’s not as difficult to do as you may think, it just takes some imagination. For a truly unique baby shower, explore your wild side and choose a jungle theme. A cute way to incorporate your jungle theme in the context of a baby shower is to have a Jungle Book party.

Create your own jungle by using artificial greenery, vines, and exotic flowers. Hang vines over door ways, windows and even around the backs of chairs. Get a little adventurous and use animal print throws and pillows to continue the theme. Consider buying zebra, leopard, and tiger print fabric to make your own. You don’t even need to know how to sew! Just use safety pins or no sew fabric glue, it’s that easy! Shop your local fabric store for these supplies. You can use animal fabric almost anywhere (i.e. napkins, placemats) to decorate. Playing music of jungle sounds during the shower is a subtle way to make your theme authentic. Serve your guests “jungle cuisine” such as elephant ears and monkey bread and search recipes for “Dirt Cake.” Serve in a pail and use a small hand shovel for a serving spoon.

Utilize Walt Disney’s Jungle Book for game and gift ideas. Have guests bring the “Bearnacesities” for the mother-to-be. A fun game that is sure to flatter your guest of honor is to have each person tell her why “I Want to be Like You.” You can also play jungle charades, where guests are given a jungle animal to act out. The guest that can guess the animal correctly takes home a potted plant. Have fun and let your imagination run wild!
