You can't forget about the cake! Order a customized jungle-themed cake from your local bakery, or create your own. Decorate the top to look like a jungle with some cute animals as a cake topper. The green frosting is perfect for achieving the greenery, blue frosting makes great watering holes, and chocolate sauce makes the perfect mud puddles.

12. Jungle Juice

Beverages are a party necessity. "Jungle juice" doesn’t come straight from the jungle, but it is a delicious blend of various juices or fruit punches. It can be a wonderful option for your jungle-themed party. If you’d like to make the beverages alcoholic, you can add a splash of rum to the mix of juices. In addition, also provide water with lemon, lime, and orange garnishes as another beverage option.

13. Jungle Snacks

Supply a variety of foods that look like they could have come right from the jungle (in a clean, delicious way).

A variety of cut-up tropical fruit, such as coconut, kiwi, papaya, pineapple, and mango are also great options to serve.

Use animal-shaped cookie cutters to cut out pieces of cheese and deli meat for a festive panache, and serve them with a variety of crackers. This is a very simple snack that your guests will certainly love.

Jungle Theme Gender Reveal Party Games

17. Tally Your Votes

A simple, fun activity for your guests is guessing the baby's gender of course! For this voting idea, write a boy and girl column on a blackboard or dry-erase board. To stick with your jungle theme, draw animal footprints, leaves, and branches on the board. One by one, each guest walks up to the board and puts a tally underneath their guess for the baby's gender.

18. Cast Your Vote

Place a gender reveal voting ballot at each guest’s seat. Once the guests mark their votes, have them put the ballots in a jungle decorated cardboard box with a slit in it at each table. Collect the ballot boxes and tally the votes before the gender is revealed.

19. Piñata Fun

It's time to reveal the gender of the baby! Pick out a jungle piñata, then have your "trusted person" fill it with blue confetti or pink confetti. For some sweet treats instead, fill it with blue or pink-wrapped candy. Have guests come up one at a time and give the piñata a wack. Give disposable gloves for guests to use when hitting the piñata with the bat.

20. Balloon Reveal

Fill one of your jungle-themed or gender reveals balloons with blue or pink confetti. Make sure the balloon is opaque and not transparent so that no one can see the colored confetti inside the balloon. Cue the countdown and it's time to pop the balloon!

21. Cake Reveal

If the reveal is a surprise for the expectant parents, have someone they trust to be in charge of the baby's gender in charge of this activity, and order the cake. Tell them your ideas for the cake and have them tell your local bakery your requests.

22. Guess How Many

The guessing never ends at a gender reveal party. Purchase an oversized baby bottle and fill it with Skittles, M&M’s, or other small candies. Use the colors blue and pink to keep it gender-neutral, or green and yellow to match the jungle theme. Count out the exact number of candies you put in the baby bottle and keep this number secret. Have your guests walk up to the table and write down their guess of how many are in the bottle. Collect all answers and the closest guess wins the bottle!

Jungle Theme Gender Reveal Party Supplies

23. Centerpiece

To add an extra touch to your tables, add jungle theme centerpieces.

24. Tablecloths

Cover any tables with a jungle theme, green, or jungle baby shower plastic tablecloths.

25. Plates

30. Animal Print

Here's another DIY idea to create your own animal print invitations. Start with a piece of folded-in-half-yellow construction paper. On the front, create giraffe spots by sketching large, irregular circles with a brown pencil or crayon. Make one of the circles large enough so that you can write "Join Us…" in it. On the inside, finish the sentence by writing “...for a gender reveal party in the jungle!” Don’t forget to include other party details inside as well and feel free to be creative and switch up what animal print you use for these invites.

31. Footprints

This baby will be sure to leave footprints wherever they go.
