Who does not love a sweet cute pink (or blue for boy) elephant? Gather your guests with an adorable invitation with a mother elephant being showered or sprinkled if it’s her second child with raindrops.
Elephant Baby Shower Invites
For the design of the invitation, you could use a little glitter or pink (blue) raindrops. You could also have a mommy elephant and a baby elephant side by side with a little ribbon bow or a bow tie on the baby elephant. You could even try to make your own invitation using canva.com, which is a great website for designing custom invitations!
For a baby girl, you could incorporate lovely pink flowers and butterflies with frilly font. You could use flowers for a baby boy also, perhaps in a blue to make it stand out that it is for a baby boy!
Pick a cute title like ‘a little peanut is on the way’ or ‘come join us to sprinkle mom-to-be with love!’ and provide the name of the mom to be, the date, time, and location of the event. If you are crafting invitations, you can use an elephant puncher for adorable displays of mini elephants. This would also work as confetti on the table.
Elephant Baby Shower Decorations
There would be great pictures to follow if you asked guests to dress only in pink (blue for boy) and white. Setting up the room for the shower can be very easy, just start with a nice large table by the front door. Cover the table with burlap and add a picture frame with a stenciled figure of a pink (blue) elephant or a baby book about elephants displayed.
This makes an awesome keepsake for the mommy to be and usually is put in the nursery. Place a bowl of pink (blue) and white mints and a book for the guests to leave their loving words of wisdom to be cherished and a remembrance of such a special time.
Elephant Baby Shower Backdrop
It would be awesome to have a cute elephant poster as a backdrop for the dessert table. You could even try to have a large balloon garland over the backdrop to make it more impressive.
Blue Elephant Backdrop
Fancy up the backdrop of the dessert table with this adorable elephant in a sky blue background! Such an adorable addition that everyone would appreciate!

Elephant Baby Shower Dessert Table
You could set up a small table for the cake and cover the table with burlap. Place a clear glass vase/jar at each end filled with pink (blue) and white lollies. Wrap pink (blue) and white ribbon backed by burlap around the vase and tie in front when a large bow. Give guests a pen and paper to guess how many lollies are in each vase and the winner gets to take them home.
A two-tiered round baby shower cake covered with white fondant and a pink (blue) elephant on top, maybe even some small square baby building blocks, and a pacifier would be a cute cake. You could have a fondant made puddle of water or raindrops coming out of an elephant’s nose showering the cake. That would make a perfect cake.
Don’t forget, you also have an option of a cute little elephant diaper cake. They look so delicious but unfortunately not edible. They also make a fantastic gift for the parents-to-be as the newborn baby will be going through plenty of them.
Add fresh pink (blue) assorted flowers to the vase and attach an elephant balloon bundle with lots of ribbons dangling. Spray the balloons with silver glitter spray to add a little elegance.
To decorate the floor, have pink (blue) and white round rugs to spread around the table to welcome guests. If you plan ahead, you could organize vinyl pink (blue) elephant figures and white balloons to apply to the wall behind the cake. These are fantastic because they are an easy application, easy removal, and no mess. It serves as a great take-home decoration for the nursery also. Perfect!
