Welcome to the jungle! Safari-themed parties are popular for first birthdays and baby showers—perhaps because they celebrate “the circle of life” (as they say in The Lion King) and a love for animals and the environment. Here are a few of our trendiest ideas for staging a safari-themed party for all! 

The Decor

Imagine a mythical wilderness filled with exotic plants, wild animals, and tropical flowers, and you’ve got the basic look of a safari-themed party. We suggest decorating your venue with tropical plants and serving food on animal-print plates

The Balloons

Extend the jungle-explorer theme for your safari party with balloons in green, brown, and khaki to simulate the colors of trees and vines, plus pops of red and yellow to symbolize fruit and flowers. Arranging colored balloons into columns and arches will add to the safari-themed vibe.

The Food

The animal-face veggie platter is almost a given at a safari-themed party, which you can serve with finger foods and an assortment of special dips. Amp up the jungle atmosphere with desserts inspired by the jungle: a chocolate-fountain “mud bath” for cut-up tropical fruits, or “snake egg” grapes to munch on for the rest of the party.

The Entertainment

Craft tables are a hit with kids of all sizes at safari-themed parties! A few DIY ideas for jungle-inspired swag to make at the party: toilet paper-tube binoculars, printed party hats, or even animal-inspired masks.

The Games

Everything’s more fun in the jungle! Try putting a safari-themed spin on popular party games like bean bag tosses and pin the nose on the elephant. Kids will love playing these jungle animal-themed party games while knowing all the rules!

The Party Favors

Animal stickers are affordable and popular with kids of all ages. We suggest giving away educational stickers that stimulate kids’ creativity.
