Born to Be Wild - White Safari Baby Shower (23 photos)
Lions, Giraffes, and Rhinos Oh My! This Safari Baby Shower had a “Born to be Wild” theme with a modern twist. Not your typical safari color-scheme. This mod baby shower featured white safari animals with blue and espresso accents to signify that our mom-to-be was having a boy. Our guest-of-honor, Kacee, had shown us her ideas for the baby’s room and we took that inspiration and ran wild with it. White Cardboard Safari animals were in the spotlight as our major focal points.
An oversized lion’s head with a pendant banner welcoming her guests as they entered the gated entrance to the home in Boca Raton, FL along with our hand crafted themed directional sign to point the way.
Once inside the gate, guests entered the courtyard where we cleverly placed Safari themed props for photo ops such as binoculars, a white Safari hat, and gloves. We also created a party hashtag #KaceesBabyShower for guests to post with to group the photos from the baby shower.
As guests wandered into the house they were asked to place the books they brought onto the white narrow bookshelves we found to help build the baby’s library (he already has the nickname baby Einstein). The bookshelves were placed on either side of the double French doors that lead to the gift table and outdoor patio. Instead of traditional flowers we used mini palm centerpieces that we wrapped with baby blue giraffe print fabric. Wooden whimsical block lettering hung from the ceiling that spelt out “Born to be Wild” and “Safari Sweets.”
Naturally the next progression was to start munching and sipping. Our signature beverage station complete with “Tiger Tea,” “Lion’s Mane Mimosas,” and “Leopard Lemonade” truly made the guests at home. They sipped with their blue and espresso striped straws and then were off to the lunch station buffet of mini hors d’oeuvres including quiches, bacon wrapped sausage, spanakopita, chicken teriyaki skewers and other bites of deliciousness. A white porcelain elephant was the centerpiece of our buffet station.
Then it was time to let the games begin. Our mom-to-be was asked to first select a book from the shelves and the lucky winner was awarded a prize. Her sister, who was in charge of games, then started off with a game called Who am I? TV Families version.
How to Play: Pick your favorite all time TV Families and have your host/hosts ask your guests the “Who am I” question. For example: I was the youngest member of the Cosby family…Who am I? The person who shouted it out the fastest gets a point and whoever has the most points at the end wins. Select up to 10 questions. We always suggest using a tie-breaker question, as in this case two guests had the same amount of correct answers.
After the games, it was time for everyone’s favorite part…dessert. This wasn’t just any ordinary dessert, at Bridal & Baby we specialize in over-the-top DessertTables. A white hooped mosquito net draped over Kacee’s 8 ft dessert table as a canopy over the white lion, rhino, and elephant centerpieces placed on wheat grass platforms. This Safari Themed Dessert Table featured a variety of cleverly named Safari Sweets such as Giraffe Sticks (cake pops) and Mud Pies (chocolate/Oreo mousse). No detail was spared in this elaborate set up adorned with blue and espresso tulle, candy wrappers, and decorative accents. We offered a selection of mini indulgences, parfaits, cake pops, cupcakes, meringues and even a candy buffet.
After the presents were opened and all of the Ewww’s and Ahhh’s were done it was time to say goodbye. Guests were directed to the white bookshelves where they picked up their baby shower favors. They were personalized Safari Themed glass milk bottles that thanked everyone for attending Kacee’s Baby Shower and for being a part of this special day. Guests then returned to the dessert table and candy buffet to fill the empty milk bottle favors with candy before the departed.
We were so overjoyed to be a part of Kacee’s special day and honored that she chose Bridal & Baby as her Baby Shower Event Planner. We know how much these special moments mean to our guests-of-honor and the joy it brings to our hosts to see the look in their faces when they enter a shower that was created just for them celebrating this monumental time in their life.
