Jungle First Birthday Party Ideas and Outfit Inspiration
Posted on 17 May 2017
The jungle theme first birthday party is near and dear to my heart because this is what we did for Noah's first birthday...now I am over here thinking of what to do for his 5th birthday party? Where in the heck did the time go? Even though it was almost four years ago, I still prefer the more bold colors like the oranges, greens, browns, yellows and the cute animated characters, so I wanted to do a blog on this same color scheme.
The jungle outfit is one of our classics and it never disappoints. It is so cute for pictures, the cake smash and the party and yes it will hold up for all of that!
Now, how cute are these passport invitations? What a creative way to invite friends and loved ones to feel like they are really going on an adventure. I made my own by getting kraft cardstock and then printing my design on my own printer.
Cut Out Trees with Burlap Background
Looking for a cute but simple, easy to put together backdrop for your kiddo’s birthday party? You can never go wrong with DIY cutouts. How adorable is the little monkey swinging from the vines?Construction Paper can easily be found at your local Dollar Tree or Walmart. You can get 2 yards of burlap fabric from Walmart or Joanne Fabric (don't forget your coupons) for a very reasonable price.
I just love the orange and lime plates and the fake fern plants running along the middle of the table. The contrasting napkins placed inside the cups is so simple but also adds some extra texture to the table.
Chocolate cake w/animal toppers & monkey cupcakes
Then of course with any birthday, the main attraction, the cake! Whether you plan on having just a cake or cupcakes or both, here are a few deliciously creative ideas. I just love these cake toppers! It’s as simple as whipping over to a Target or Toys R Us to find these little animal figures and setting them on a cake. Oh and look at those cupcakes! Such a great idea to use vanilla wafers to make the little monkey faces! I also love the animal face cupcakes. These are a super easy way to make a dessert table look full and decorated at the same time.
We literally bought all of the fun little giveaway stuff online and the prices were very reasonable. With animal masks and DIY binoculars, little ones can let their imaginations roam free playing safari animal or explorer.
If you’re thinking of a healthy snack for the little monkeys, fill a bowl with bananas or these adorable tiger tangerines. For the adults, you can fill pitchers or these cute dispensers with some fun cocktails. You can also use the dispensers for kid drinks of course like lemonade or punch.
All of these ideas can easily be implemented while being budget friendly. I find Walmart to have very reasonable on prices for the plates, napkins, plastic tablecloths and favors.
