We know that every kid will love animals. Cows, sheeps, bear, and anything else. They love safari! So, use these easy Safari party ideas to go deep into the jungle. The lively and entertaining party decor will be a hit with the kids. There are many ideas that, with a little DIY preparation, are simple to implement.
We cover you if you’re a wild party animal who wants to throw a jungle-themed gathering. Because we know it isn’t as easy as it seems. We are inspired to plan parties for a variety of events by images of palm fronds, exotic birds, and tropical flowers that float through our minds.
These ideas can assist you in creating the right atmosphere for a birthday party, baby shower, graduation, or any enjoyable event that has a jungle or safari theme. You’ll also find some inspiration for digital invitations that will excite your guests to the fullest.
Animal print reigns supreme when it comes to a jungle-themed party’s color scheme. When decorating the venue for the event, use animal motifs and earthy hues like orange, green, and brown. Consider orchids and hibiscus flowers that bloom in the jungle when choosing colors for your party decor. The jungle is also a bright and lively place.
No event is complete (especially a safari theme birthday party) without party balloons! Look for animal balloons featuring tigers, elephants, monkeys, and other wild beasts. You can also opt for zebra stripes or animal print balloons. Display them around the event room, make a DIY balloon garland, and tie a few special latex balloons to the chair for the birthday boy or birthday girl.
Whilst there are some specific party ideas further down the post with decorating ideas, the simplest way to decorate the party space is to stick to the earthy colors. Think of brown, green, yellow, orange and white as a good starting point and it’s easy to build from there.
It is a good idea to create a party backdrop. This can easily be achieved using budget friendly plastic tablecloth’s in your chosen party colors.
Next create some tissue paper garlands to hang around the area and suddenly you already have the perfect jungle feel. Make some vines by twisting together brown craft paper. Add vine and palm leaves to them for extra effect.
When it comes to planning the ultimate safari theme party, you can’t go wrong with plenty of jungle animals. Whether you fill the space with them, or hide them around as a fun mini game for the kids, it’s a super fun way to bring the theme to life.
Use animal cutouts to create an adorable photo booth area, or feature tiny toy jungle animals as part of a themed centerpiece or table decoration. How and where you display the animals is up to you, but it wouldn’t be a safari theme party without them.
Safari Animal Stickers
If your jungle-themed party is a kid’s event, get some animal stickers they can use to decorate cards or stick on each other. Giraffes, zebras, lions, and crocodiles are all great choices. For an even wilder atmosphere, look for animal stickers in vibrant colors or metallic designs that shimmer and shine.
Animal Print Tableware
Set the stage for a jungle-inspired meal with animal print tablecloths and animal table decorations. For easy clean-up and an easy design element, use paper plates, cups, and napkins featuring a safari theme.
For a young child’s birthday party, consider plates featuring wild animal faces. For older kids or an adult safari party, look for jungle motifs like monstera or palm leaves and jungle animal prints, which can be more elegant.
Never mind the clean-up. There’s something about confetti that makes a party even more fun. Sprinkle animal print confetti on the table or hand out party favor bags or goodie bags with party poppers packed with confetti.
Birthday Banner or Backdrop
If you’re throwing a jungle-themed birthday celebration or baby shower, make the guest of honor the center of attention with an animal-themed background.
Use wild animal wall decals, hang an animal print from the ceiling, or create a balloon arch out of green, orange, and brown balloons. Large safari wall decals are even available on Etsy and Amazon, which the birthday child or expecting mother can use in the nursery or bedroom.
A photo booth will help you remember the fun of your jungle-themed party and capture memories of the day. Have a lot of photo props on hand, such animal cutouts, animal masks, safari hats, and animal print eyewear.
You should pick food that goes with your jungle party theme. Delicate cupcakes with mint green frosting would be a perfect choice for a whimsical safari birthday party. For a festive look, don’t forget to top your cupcakes with animal-themed toppers like adorable blue elephants or pink lionesses.
When throwing a child’s birthday party, you can serve a larger supper to satisfy the wild animals’ appetites as they play with their pals. Create something imaginative, like a lion’s mane-shaped cheese and salami tray, or chop up a sub sandwich and arrange it on the table like a snake. Pick up a bag of zoo spaghetti with animal noodles if you want to make a heartier supper.
Put out bowls of peanuts and pretzels that you may call elephant snacks, and mark them as jungle logs, for simple eating. In keeping with the jungle theme, gummy snakes and a bowl of bananas can be served as monkey snacks.
Don’t forget to prepare a place where guests can find water. Using components like rum, lime juice, and pineapples, serve up jungle drinks or jungle juice for an adult celebration. Lemonade or other non-alcoholic beverages should be served at kid’s parties in glasses with a rainforest theme.
If you’re planning a birthday bash, give a safari birthday cake some thinking. You can get a sheet cake with different jungle animals on it or locate a basic cupcake recipe and cover it with animal crackers. Put non-toxic gold paint on tiny animal miniatures and arrange them on top of the cupcakes for a more opulent cake topper.
Buffets are great for a kids’ birthday party because people can pick their favorite snacks and treats without too much going to waste. It’s perfect for those picky little eaters who just want to fill a plate with cheese, crackers, or cocktail sausages.
To liven up your birthday buffet, give your foods a safari twist. These monkey sandwiches are adorable, and this giraffe cake dessert board is a gorgeous way to get your guests enjoying lots of fresh fruit. For snacks, a jungle safari trail mix is easy to make and works great as a sleepover midnight treat.
If you’re looking for something to tire out your wild ones, a jungle-themed obstacle course is a wonderfully interactive idea. It’s an ideal activity for kids of all ages, and you can tailor it to your theme, group, or event type.
You can create your own obstacle course using everyday objects like couch cushions or hula hoops, or invest in an inflatable obstacle course for a big milestone birthday celebration. However you choose to do it, this is a great way to use up some of that energy ahead of cake time.
