Jungle Baby Shower Theme
A jungle theme for a baby shower is easy to organize because you will mostly be needing plush animal toys, animal-related food entrees, greenery, and centerpieces that are reminiscent of wildlife. In addition, you can set your party outdoors, like the garden, so you already have the backdrop of greenery around you.

This mostly serves to make it obvious that this baby shower theme is for a baby boy. Put in centerpieces and other important baby shower supplies in blue so that these aspects will be accentuated.
Monkey Baby Shower Theme
Baby showers featuring a monkey theme have also been popular with would-be moms, mainly because you can be very creative in throwing these kinds of parties. You’d think that this theme would be very restricting since it would be focusing on just one animal, but from the baby shower invitations to the decorations, you can go wild and unique with ideas.
For example, instead of opting for the usual written or stationery-like invitations, why not make a banana-shaped invite for a change? Or you can make a monkey-head cut-out to make it more interesting for your guests.
As for the baby shower decorations, you can go for little monkey banners or paper bananas hanging on clotheslines or thin ropes along the walls. Another tip for those who are on the budget—bananas make the best centerpieces for monkey themed baby showers, and it can also make a light snack for those who can’t wait for lunch.
