For an elephant theme baby shower, you will need elephant shower invitations, decorations, a menu and favors. The list of supplies for the party is not very long but the costs can add up very quickly especially when the price of centerpieces and a gift is added. The purpose of this page is to help hostesses decorate the venue with as many baby elephants carrying umbrellas, wearing hats or dancing under a circus tent as they feel are needed while keeping costs under control.
Custom printed invitations ordered online may be a great idea if time is running short but if the budget is tighter than the timeline; free printable invitations may be the route to take. Please refer to our list of the cutest (cheap or free) downloads that will be perfect for your elephant baby shower theme and may save money.
Once the decision for decorating in an elephant theme has been made a color must be chosen. The gender of the baby will determine whether blue or pink elephant baby shower invitations will be needed. If the sex of the baby is unknown or being kept secret, green elephant invitations or lavender ones are available.
Printable, Free Elephant Baby Shower Invitations
If you are down to the wire and time is running out, you may want to buy some card stock, download some cute fonts for lettering and print your own elephant shower invitations. There are websites that advertise these services as free, and the use of the pink, blue or gender neutral elephant clip art or graphics may be free to download for uses including elephant shower invitations, but you still have to buy the card stock, envelopes and colored printer ink. To calculate all of the above items, may seem a little over the top, but those items can be expensive if you are mailing and printing a large number of elephant shower invitations.
If the mom has tipped you off as to the sex of the baby, you will know whether to stock up on unisex colors of lavender, yellow or green or to go with a powder pink or baby blue layout for your elephant theme baby shower invitations.
Here is a free, printable pink elephant baby shower invitation and there is also template for an envelope available.
This is a baby blue elephant baby shower invitation printable that can be personalized with the wording of your choice.
If nobody's telling the baby's gender, neutral colors are always tasteful. If you are printing your own elephant theme baby shower invitations, you could forego a color scheme and use a monochrome black and white print. A cartoon strip that features baby elephants printed on the face of your cards in black and white would be really unique and if you personalize to include baby shower theme details in the wording in the conversation bubbles, that would really be cool!
Black and white elephant theme baby shower invitations on cream or white card stock would be really inexpensive to print. For a little pizzazz you could glue a tiny bow made of colored satin ribbon. Imagine how a little red, pink or cobalt blue ribbon would pop on a stark black and white invitation!
