Modern Safari party theme

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!:

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.

 

Invitations

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.

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:

Table setting

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.

Decorations

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!:

Paw Patrol party supplies

Paw Patrol is hugely popular at the moment and many a child is choosing this for their birthday party theme. My girls both love paw patrol and it was a theme that my soon to be 4year old was tossing up for her birthday.

It is a party theme which can suit both boys and girls with many girls having a “Skye” or “Everest” paw patrol party. Your child may choose to have all the characters featured in their invitation and decorations or just their favourite pup – meaning that anything goes for the colour scheme!

However for this blog post I have stuck with the more common blue/red and some black/white/

Below I am sharing a range of paw patrol party supplies to suit a paw patrol birthday. Here is some styling inspiration to get you started:
