Last month I put together a very fun jungle safari birthday party for my little guy who just turned two years old. I LOVE the way that everything came together, and I wanted to share some of the details and photos of the party with you!
This is part one of the jungle safari party, which will mostly cover decoration and food. You can find part 2 here, where I share the games and activities, outfits, the cake, and more fun details about the party, including free printable safari passess for the kids!
Does this structure look familiar? You might recognize it as my DIY Lemonade Stand made from 3 wood pallets that I created. I gave it a little makeover- a new coat of tan paint, a new burlap awning (instead of the pink and white striped one), and some jungle safari accessories (like lanterns, binoculars. signs, magnifying glass, butterflies, snakes, etc.) all helped add to the theme. Fun, right?
Supplies included cute DIY binoculars (tutorial here) that I made out of toilet paper rolls and duck tape (you can check out other ways I decorate for parties with duck tape here), safari expedition passes to go around their necks that I created, and little frogs and lizards and snakes.
The mosquito bites were free (see on the sign above?), which some of the adventurers weren’t excited about! After a little reassurance from me that it was just a joke, they were ready to move on to the rest of the party 😉
If you follow me on Instagram (@makelifelovely) you might have seen the amazing globe that I scored for only $5.99 at Goodwill! I bought the crates at Michael’s and Jo-Anns, and found the ball of jute rope (that is actually a doorstop) at World Market.
No jungle safari party would be complete without monkey food, right?!
My little birthday boy…. what a cutie 🙂
Thanks for letting me share my son’s jungle safari party with you!
