Ask any first grade teacher, and they'll tell you that getting a bunch of six year olds together is basically akin to inviting wild animals over for a raucous riot of a time. But that notion didn't stop Jennifer Hunt, CEO behind Dixie Design Collective, from throwing an amazing birthday party event for her son's big day. In fact, Hunt embraced the wildness with an exciting and oh-so fitting jungle theme!
And now we're sharing how she put together this party--so you can do it too... if you dare!
Jungle Party Inspiration
You can never go wrong with balloons at a kids' birthday party! This beautiful green garland with pops of peach and pink hues was created by @party_pickup.
Check out this incredible cake created by Dream Cakes. Decorated with fondant palm leaves and greenery. It makes a simple statement and looks delicious to boot! (See more of their inspiring custom edible creations on Instagram @dreamcakesbham.) The wooden cake toppers by Poppy Jack Shop add a little something extra, and the rippled cake stand is by @susangordonpottery.
Most party-planning mamas don't have the time to sweat the details. That's where @party_pickup comes into action. Their customized party in a box set includes dessert plates, napkins, paper cups, paper straws, cutlery, and more. (How awesome are those snake-wrapped cups?!?)
I love the bamboo carts, serving trays, and decorative touches by @maryandwilma. Don't forget the jungle juice!
These apropos wild flower arrangements and kitschy candy grazing stations were created by @savor_style... But please don't feed the animals (ha!).
