Wild Safari Birthday Party {Guest Feature}

Safari birthday party

One of my favorite kids party themes is a Safari theme. Maybe it’s because I love a good animal print {in both fashion & home decor} and the idea of such an exotic escape, but the safari theme always makes me happy. This birthday party was created by Katie of Petite Social, who is always thoughtful and clever in her designs.

She used a neutral color scheme with rustic elements, and set up a darling dessert table, lunch tables, and auxiliary tables for her client. She shares all the details with us below….

Fun Details from Katie:

  • This party can be for a boy or girl. I went with natural, burlap, black, brown and threw in pops of orange.
  • Play on Words — Wild Cupcakes, Python Pops (cake pops), Hydration (water), Python Spots (candy), Safari Sampler (menu), French Flies, Swamp Sauce (dipping sauces), Animal Bites (chicken nuggets), Safari Souvenirs (party favors), Jungle Juice.
  • Use of Vintage Watering Can I had picked up for $5 at a flea market – perfect decor for ‘Jungle Juice’
  • Individually stamped wood utensils to match printables – WILD, EXPLORE, TEDDY, SAFARI
  • Arrow Signs that greeted guests as they arrived
  • In lieu of gifts, guests were asked to bring school supplies to donate to local charity – ‘Unload Supplies Here’ sign.

    I love the wood stands. Did you make those? Or purchase them? If so where?

  6. Lisa C. says:

    Where can I find the wood utensils?! Everywhere I look I can only find the serving ones- but not “eating” ones!! HELP! (thanks again!)
