Throwing a themed-baby shower can make the party planning easier and will help tie in every aspect of the special day together. When the mom-to-be is an animal lover or is expecting two-by-two, throwing a Noah's Ark theme baby shower is easy and fun way to celebrate her special day.
Initiations. Sending out a creative and decorative invitation can help to get guests excited about the party to come - you can purchase pre-made Noah's ark ones or by print a poem onto a piece of vellum or animal print paper. Popular quotes for ark-themed showers include "Two by two or one by one, babies can be so much fun" or "The forecast predicts a baby, but first there will be a shower".
Decorations. A baby shower DIY wishing tree kit with large tree center and small dove like bird decals works well to set the mood of the party when placed at the entrance. Guests can write down wishes which will hang from the branches of the tree and the entire setup can be placed in the nursery once the party has finished. Ask guests to bring stuffed animals (in pairs of two, of course!) as part of their gift, as these can be used to decorate the room as well. Sailboat place card holders look like mini Arks and are a cute way to designate seating at the event.
Food. Place bowls of snacks like chips and dip and chex mix around the party with signs reading "don't feed the animals" and serve simple finger sandwiches with two main ingredients (ham and cheese, peanut butter and jelly) to go with the two-by-two theme. For an item that is sure to wow, carve a watermelon into the shape of an Ark and fill it with fruit and plastic animal figurines. Dessert should consist of several animal-shaped cookies in pairs, brownie pals party favor pops and an Ark-shaped cake surrounded by several animal cupcakes.
Favors. Send guests home with fond memories of the day and small bags of animal themed candies or cupcakes to enjoy later on. Adorable mini jungle animal baby shower candles also make great gifts for guests of a Noah's Ark-themed party when given in sets of two.
