One Sweet Day by Vil
A jungle or safari theme has always been a popular choice for baby showers or first birthdays, but lately we’re seeing a digression from the traditional colour palette of bright colours and cute characters to a more sophisticated and modern interpretation, which I’m just loving!
Keeping to a monochrome theme, it’s easy to build on your theme with highlights of gold or tropical fauna for a big impact just like these beautifully styled occasions by some of our talented LLC vendors.
Remember to CLICK onto any of the images below to find more details or where to purchase/order the items!:
Styled by The Sugar Topped Table
Modern Jungle Safari – styled by Opulenticity Party & Buffet Styling
Monochrome Safari – style by The Sugar Topped Table
This is one theme that can be so easily achieved with what is readily available, and to help you I’ve pulled together a few of my favourite items from some of our LLC vendors to get you started.
A great place to start when setting your theme! Choose a black and white colour palette with touches of gold, or turn those accents into show stopping starting blocks like this gorgeous Inka print and sunrise invitation from Loulou Pie Creative. These colours can then be picked up throughout your tableware and decorations for an impressive effect.
Safari invitations – Loulou Pie Creative
Although I am showcasing the whole dessert table setup for these gorgeous safari parties below I want to particularly highlight the gorgeous backdrop designs which would also be available for use as an invitation and other party stationery:
Monochrome Safari – style by The Sugar Topped Table. Stationery design by Style Me Gorgeous
Styling by The Little Big company. Backdrop design by Jo Studio
For a monochrome look use black and white as your base for the majority of your tableware, then add highlights of gold, blush pink or tropical fauna using some of these finds.

This tablecloth is perfect if you want to go with a rustic look:

If you want to go for a monochrome look then stick to the rule of using only black and white for the majority of your decorations and choose a few stand out items such as jumbo confetti balloons, cake toppers or the use of tropical foliage to bring it all together, or simply stick to all black and white if you wish!
You could also stick to a basic colour scheme of mainly white, or rustic brown and then use gold highlights in the decorations or desserts. Safari animals spray painted gold are an easy DIY to help give the dessert table a fun and modern look!
These items are perfect to decorate a safari cake and make it a stand out!:

You can literally let your imagination run ‘wild’ with this theme, and the beauty of keeping it to a minimal monochrome palette wth luxe touches is that you don’t need to be a stylist to pull it off either!
Kids love animals so a jungle or safari theme is always a popular birthday party choice. It’s an easy party to style – lots of fun and there are so many supplies online or in stores you could use!
You could either style it with very natural tones and textures, or go bright and colouful – browns and greens or add in reds, yellows and oranges. You can incorporate fun animal prints to really help theme this party.
