Arizona Event Planner: Zoo Themed Baby Showers

Arizona Event Planner Plans Zoo Themed Baby Shower

As an Arizona Event Planner, I love to plan and design all types of fun milestone events

Creating this zoo-themed baby shower was no exception!  Lions, giraffes, elephants and monkeys, oh my!

Simple Tips for Creating this Themed Event

First we brought in a local balloon designer, we brought in large zoo animal themed balloons as a decor element and photo opportunity.  Balloons are on-trend and really make for a wow when guests enter the room.

The welcome beverage incorporated another fun item that you might enjoy at the zoo–cotton candy!  Our cocktail was a twist on a French 75, utilizing vodka, lemon juice, champagne and topped with cotton candy.   Based on the gender of the baby, you can choose blue or pink cotton candy to change the color the beverage.  To make the drink alcohol-free, try using sparkling water and cotton candy.

For food, we selected healthy options and presented them in a unique way.  Our crudite was arranged in small glasses with the dip in the bottom of the glasses.  Our chicken salad lettuce cups were topped with bacon and our fruit was placed in farmer’s berry baskets for guests to help themselves.

One of the advantages in working with an Arizona Event Planner is that we have many great partners.  The sugar cookies were not only a tasty dessert, but they again tied in with our zoo animal theme.

Note the Radio Flyer Red Wagon which we used as a container for the baby gift.  You’ll see some favorite baby items including a pacifier, rattle, teether, burb cloths, and clothing.  The wagon can be used in the baby’s nursery to hold toys.

It’s fun to have a favor for your guests and ours were mini splits of champagne in pink and blue.  The POP Champagne included a personalized tag with a message that read, “Enjoy a toast when our baby arrives”.
