Safari invitations for baby shower

Ready to go on safari? Well, you certainly can when planning a baby shower. With a few simple tips and the right invitation designs you can transport guests to a land filled with extraordinary animals, gorgeous greenery, and other nature-inspired elements. But before we take a look at the best safari invitations for a baby shower, let’s break down the basics of what to include in your invites and explore some fun themes for a baby shower safari. 

What to Include in Your Safari Invitations for Baby Showers

Safari invitations for baby shower: Jungle Party Invitation

Design: Signature Greenvelope

The perfect safari baby shower or baby sprinkle takes a lot of planning. While the invites are a must-have, it’s easy to overlook some key details when you’re focused on so many other aspects of the upcoming celebration. Here’s what to include in your safari baby shower invitation cards so you don’t miss a thing. 

Guest of Honor

Let your guests know who you’re throwing an incredible baby shower for by naming the guest(s) of honor front and center. Make their name stand out in a large or beautiful script font. 

Date and Time

Another must-have for your baby shower invite wording is the party date and time. Share when the big event will happen, and what time you’d love your guests to show up. Include an end time as well so they can plan their schedule accordingly. Opt for writing out the entire date (and day of the week) so there’s no confusion. For example, instead of simply writing “10/12/22 at 1 p.m.,” consider “Saturday, October 22, 2022, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.”

Baby Shower Party Venue

Give your party guests all the details they’ll need to make it to the right venue. Let them know the name of the venue, as well as the full address and ZIP code. You might also want to include any information about parking. This makes it clear for any out-of-town guests to find their way there. 

How to RSVP

People will often RSVP in the way that suits them best, but sometimes you’ll want to give them some direction. If you want replies by mail, be sure to include a return address. For email responses, let them know where to reach you. If you’re sending your online invitations through Greenvelope, guests can RSVP in just a few clicks directly from the invite itself — doesn’t get much easier than that. 

Other Details

Keep it simple with the essentials above, or add more detail if it makes sense for your party. You might want to list a few activities — such as baby shower games, entertainment, or any outdoor adventures you have planned. You could also list what you’re serving so people know whether it’s drinks and snacks or a sit-down meal. If your guest of honor has a gift registry, a digital invitation is a good place to mention it. 

Design Elements to Explore for Your Baby Shower Invitations

Jungle safari baby showers are crowd-pleasers that are a blast to plan and host. Not only are they among the best gender-neutral baby shower themes, but you can also have fun with playful wild animal figures, animal print patterns, and tons of natural greenery. To help you find the perfect invites, here are a few “themes within a theme” to explore for your safari invitations. 

Animal Print

There’s plenty you can do with animal print as a theme. Stick with the traditional zebra stripes, giraffe prints, or cheetah spots, or go wild and change your leopard spots in neon colors or pastels. It’s a fun way to give a nod to the safari trend without going all-in on an animal-themed invitation. 

Safari Animals

There’s something so sweet about animal baby shower invitations. Look for a design with realistic watercolor zebras and giraffes, or one with a bold blue elephant instead. Think about all your favorite safari animals and see which would be perfect for your safari animal-themed invitations. 

Jungle Leaves 

You can still have safari invitations for your baby shower without even including any jungle animals in your design. Swap the adorable animal illustrations or animal prints for stunning watercolor leaves and greenery instead. It’s a fresh, contemporary take on the jungle baby shower trend
