You don't have to be a genius in the kitchen to deliver an unforgettable cake for an elephant themed baby shower. Elephant Cake toppers will help you do the job! Whether you use them one-by-one to top cupcakes or create a fun border on a larger cake, they're the easy, fool-proof way to get the job done, and if you make them from fondant they're also completely edible! Cake supply stores may have a cutter, or if the shape proves too challenging, create elephant footprints instead.
If your artistic talents don't extend to elephants, you can easily dress up a plain cake by using extra decorations. Cut pieces from the invitation or plates and tape a couple of toothpicks to the back so they'll stand easily on top of the cake. If you don't have extra party supplies, check the scrapbooking section of your favorite craft store.
For a more personal idea, use an ultrasound photo or gather baby's older siblings or family members for a photo to welcome the new arrival. Your local cake supply store should be able to scan the photo onto an edible image you can simply lay over the iced cake for an instant decoration like no other.
Pin The Trunk: What better game for an elephant shower than the classic pin the trunk on the elephant? Make this one an instant hit by asking guests to create their own "trunks" by cutting ribbon in a length they feel matches the circumference of the guest of honor's pregnant belly. Determine two winners - one who most correctly guesses the length, and a second who can put the trunk closest to the right spot while blindfolded.
Baby Shower Word Scrambles: These are popular games. Take yours to a whole new level by scrambling elephant related words - especially those related to young pachyderms - or include fellow baby animals from the elephant's habitat and further challenge guests to name the species to which they belong. What other animals give birth to calves? (Hint: antelope, hippos, and elephant babies are all called calves!)
Diaper Stash Game: For a fun game that will give the mom-to-be a hefty diaper stash, pair up guests and see who can build the most mammoth stack. All you need is a few packs of diapers (opt for size one instead of newborn, which babies quickly grow out of). Open them up and see who can get the highest vertical stack of individual diapers before it topples. The new mom wins the prize - a huge supply of diapers for her baby!
Elephant Placecard Holder: Big ideas for elephant baby shower favors can come in very small packages. Consider, for instance, silver elephant place card holders, Your guests can then take home as a token of appreciation. They also hold small gifts or gift cards for guests or photos of the new arrival if the shower is scheduled after baby's birth.
Elephant favor box: One special delivery deserves another! Use Elephant Favor Boxes for mints, nuts, or small containers of bath gel, lotion, or other pint-sized gifts.
Candy Wrapper: Sweet tooth? Mark this irresistible occasion with personalized candy bar wrappers. Add all the expectant mommy's information for a scrapbook ready token that will help everyone remember details about the pregnancy that are often forgotten, like the baby's due date.
Elephant Diape Gift: Make the pink elephant baby shower a memory to last with an Elephant Baby Cake Supreme. Bursting with sweet-faced pachyderms, this stack of gifts will come in handy from baby's first day. From bath time necessities to gowns and other layette essentials, it's all in the presentation for this endlessly useful gift.
Elephant Blanket Gift: For a gift baby will use well into the toddler years, consider a Personalized Elephant Baby Blanket. Destined to become the brand new little one's favorite lovey, these blankets welcome the new baby girl with the comfort of fleece with her name included in big, bold letters.
Whether you want a spin on tradition or an irresistibly sweet idea welcoming new parents to the jungle of life with a newborn, these ideas for a pink elephant baby shower are ones your guests and the mom-to-be won't soon forget!
