Jungle Animals Candy Buffet Ideas

Roarrr – Celebrate the new cub with sweets! Celebrate the arrival of the new cub with jungle-themed baby shower ideas for a sweet candy table in tropical colors! A jungle-themed baby shower is the perfect excuse to go with a ferociously fun candy buffet in tropical colors! We're loving jumbo gumballs, lollies and rock candy palm trees in yellow, orange, kiwi green and Caribbean blue. Get awww-some candy ideas plus DIY signs, decorating tips and even sweet li'l monkey cupcakes. Ooh-ooh-aah-aww!

Idea 1: Make cute & yummy palm trees (it's a breeze!)

For this rockin' idea, you'll need green rock candy sticks, candies in your party colors, small clear vases, and green napkins in light and dark hues for the leaves. Put it all together and make a cool sign by sticking a label on a baking cup (trim with scissors to make the fringe), and attaching it to a monkey place card holder. Can't wait to meet the little monkey!

Idea 2: Paper fan + baking cups = king of the jungle!

This ferociously fun lion will be the mane event on your candy table! Start with a small orange paper fan and attach about a dozen gold baking cups (with tape or a glue gun), making a full ring and adding two extras for his sweet little ears. Cut his eyes and nose from white and black paper napkins, and attach a mouth made of curling ribbon to welcome the new little cub!

Idea 3: We ♥ sweet DIY signs for baby showers!

You can use custom signs to make the shower extra-special for the new mom. We started with a "Welcome Baby" paper cutout from a centerpiece kit and "framed" it with a gold mini baking cup and two yellow baking cups (snip the fringe with scissors). The leopard spot wrap is actually a folded napkin - a great way to tie in the theme!

Idea 4: A bright idea for a sweet safari

A jungle-themed baby shower is the perfect excuse to go beyond pink and blue... with a ferociously fun candy buffet in tropical colors! We're loving gumballs, lollies and rock candy palm trees for a safari-style baby shower. (For the backdrop, we used a raffia table skirt over a kiwi paper garland; the table is decorated with a tropical leaf garland.)

Idea 5: Display treat bags in a basket!

Everyone will want to take home some candy goodness, so have treat bags next to the candy with a cute fringe sign. Create this sign by layering a label with a yellow baking cup (trim with scissors to make fringe), with a giraffe place card holder for the stand. Adorable!

Idea 6: Monkey cupcakes are a barrel of fun

All you need are plain white cupcakes, monkey cupcake toppers, orange sprinkles and some cute baking cups to make an adorable display! We put them on a cake stand decorated with matching ribbon and orange streamer, and added a plush monkey toy that's a cute keepsake for Mom. So easy! This jungle shower idea really takes the cake.

Idea 7: Accent the candy buffet with purr-fect signs!

Colorful candy displays are eye-catching on their own, but add a cuddly sign to add a bit of tropical flavor. DIY the label with a tiny tiger cub place card holder and personalized tag (made with a sticker and fringe-cut baking cup). Purr-fect eye candy for this wildly adorable jungle baby shower!
