This week, we brought the jungle right into a birthday boy’s home! As a spin on our classic Safari party, we customized this birthday bash for a 5-year-old aspiring zoologist by adding a dose of the exotic, bringing a traveling animal show right into the host family’s apartment.
Guests were greeted by the birthday boy’s smiling face on custom printed photo balloons and a handmade safari-themed banner.
Burlap table cloths and a color scheme of orange and green created a jungle ambiance and got everyone into the safari spirit!
While the adults enjoyed light refreshments, the kids took in the live animal show complete with a chinchilla, a tortoise family, and many other exciting creatures.
There was even a giant rabbit who hopped around the room to say hello to all the guests!
After the excitement of the animal show was over, all of the children had a turn with a face painting artist who transformed them into lions, cheetahs, zebras, and even dragons and unicorns!
While guests waited to be made up as exotic animals, they danced the afternoon away to a custom playlist of the birthday boy’s favorite songs and scored magical balloon creations from our fun-loving balloon artist.
To refuel after their animal dance party, the kids chowed down on chicken fingers and sliders.
Of course no birthday party is complete without an array of sweet treats, so guests enjoyed delicious mini cupcakes and a custom lion safari cake. What a perfect, sweet end to a future zoologist’s special day!
