The cake and dessert table is one of the most important details at a baby shower. To make sure it becomes an adorable focal point of the party consider bringing in the wild theme by placing the cake on a rustic wood board. Animal figurines serve as unique cake toppers and fun decor around the table. You can then add green palm leaves around the table along with colorful cupcakes displayed in fun safari-inspired paper holders.

Don’t feel like you have to stick to traditional desserts. You can also offer cookies, macarons or even glazed donuts — just make sure to add some safari-themed accents!

Planning every stage of a baby shower is special and especially rewarding once you see the baby shower theme come to life. Remember to make the party as enjoyable as possible for the parents-to-be as they get ready to welcome their bundle of joy.
