If the mother-to-be is crazy for pachyderms , why not throw her an all-out elephant baby shower?
There's lots of cute ways to decorate. Use an elephant themed baby clothesline as the main focal point and then grab some playful elephant toys to scatter around the room.
Carry the theme onto the buffet table with a cute cake or cupcakes and of course you'll want to get the gang together using an adorable elephant baby shower invite.
I've featured three of my personal favorites here but there's lots more where these come from. Each of these affordable invitations can be easily personalized and come with a white envelope and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Jungle Safari - A Jungle Safari theme lends itself to a shower being given for a little boy but of course there are exceptions and if you toss in a fair amount of pink this will work just as well for a girl.
Baby Animals or Teddy Bears - will create a super cute look and feel for your guests and it's easy to find party supplies and plush animals for decorating.
Forest Creatures - are well suited for a Fall or Winter baby shower. The look and feel will be natural with a lot of browns and greens.
Monkey - Monkeys are extremely popular as a shower theme for baby. They will add a bit of whimsy and fun to the party before it even gets started.
