Jungle Safari Birthday Ideas for Little Explorers
Got yourself a wild child? Perhaps you have a kiddo that resembles Mowgli– or even just a straight up monkey– climbing and swinging on everything! For your little one’s first birthday celebration, we suggest you throw a Jungle Safari-themed bash for a rowdy good time!
We scoured Pinterest for a ton of party photos to inspire you. Here are some of our faves:
Beijos Events threw a Jungle party for one-year-old Cruz... and the decor is so on point!
We're all about decorations that you can still use when the party's done. Letter boards will always have a place in the home... and animal masks are great for playtime/last minute Halloween costumes/scaring grandma.
I've said this once, I've said it a million times: The kids' table is where it's at. While the adults sit on proper chairs (boring), kids get to sit on the ground with lots of cozy pillows.
Lots of fun signage like "Don't Feed the Animals!" and "It's a Jungle Out There" beautifully handwritten on wooden boards.
And don't forget... It's not a jungle bash unless you can get animal face paint!
Check out this safari-inspired celebration by American Greetings, filled with lots of easy paper DIYs.
We adore this lush backdrop, complete with crepe paper strands, tissue pom-poms, and inflatable animals. Perfect for photo-ops – just don't to come up with a catchy hashtag!
Natural materials – such as burlap, paper, and even rocks and foliage – keep things looking wild. (A ferocious lion helps, too.)
Josie Gittany specializes in luxury events, so she's not afraid to go BIG! And that's a must when you're throwing a jungle-themed party.
See what I mean? I'd get lost in those centerpieces!
And just like the plants... the animal props are also larger than life.
Here’s a golden safari bash by Bloom Designs.
The kids table, putting your formal dining room to shame with some animal figurines spray painted in gold, and personalized place mats and party hats.
A stampede of gilded animals running from a cloud of hydrangeas. Desserts on desserts, all topped with gold.
Even their throwaway paper plates were embellished with golden giraffe silhouettes.
For luxe drink stirrers, giraffe erasers were spray painted and attached onto clear sticks.
And here’s a special crown for the birthday boy who has it all… all before he turned one!
