Giraffes, zebras, elephants, gold, mint and burlap came together for one totally cute safari themed first birthday party! Bethany of Sweet Georgia Sweet decided on the theme after the family traveled on an African safari and pulled her son’s party together with the perfect details. Use a few of these ideas for your little one’s own safari adventure!
A Wild Invitation
The invitation always sets the tone for the party, and this one was no exception! A cute invite from Three Little Monkeys Studio let guests know this was going to be a fun one.
First Birthday High Chair
For a first birthday party, it’s all about the high chair. A small giraffe banner by Sweet Georgia Sweet created the ideal photo op for the birthday boy.
This party definitely wasn’t short of sweets! Tiny binoculars and and safari hats topped delicious vanilla cupcakes.
Cookies decorated with rhinos, elephants, lions and giraffes were almost too pretty to eat! A wooden elephant cake topper jazzed up a simple and stylish naked cake.
Party Tip: No cake topper? No problem! Use small animal figures to top a homemade cake.
A Towering Giraffe
A Decked Out Mantle
A creative use of decor can transform your home for any celebration. A mix of antique books, baby photos, safari animals, and banners created an alluring focal point.
Guests loved reading a custom first birthday board featuring the birthday boy’s favorite things.
Cotton Candy Treats
Cotton candy presented in a personalized bucket offered individual grab-and-go snacks for guests.
Adorable Banners and Decor
Banners added wonderful personalized touches throughout the bash. You can see how much this baby boy has grown from month to month on this precious photo banner!
Boxed Lunches and Favors
Make serving lunch a breeze with pre-boxed lunches. It’s an easy way to serve all the parents and proportion the right amount of food for kids attending.
Guests enjoyed milk served in French square bottles and tiny vintage suitcase favor boxes for the journey home.
Party Tip: Bid party guests “bon voyage” with an edible snack. Fill these suitcase favor boxes with animal crackers for wild safari-inspired favors.
