Get Wild About These Safari Party Decoration Ideas | The Party Darling

Let's get wild! Safari parties are a classic theme for a child's birthday party or a precious baby shower. It can be incorporated as a zoo or jungle theme as well! From a "wild one" birthday, a "young, wild, and three" birthday, or an "It's About to be a Jungle" baby shower, a safari-themed party is an adventure for all!

Whichever party animal you celebrate, we're sharing inspiration to help you make the party as wild as they are! From the tableware to the decorations, all ages will go wild for this safari celebration. So read on, and we'll show you how to throw a safari party!

Let's Get Wild Safari Balloons | The Party Darling

While you may not find balloons in the wild, they're a party staple here at The Party Darling! We created a stunning balloon garland with muted colors to match the colors of the table. For a more boho aesthetic, we added Pampas Grass to the garland. 

Party Tip: Adding extra elements to a balloon garland makes it look more custom and helps personalize your party.

Pampas Grass also looks excellent as a floral arrangement! We used a simple white vase for our pampas grass centerpiece. This is the boho touch our tables needed—and we're here for it! 

Safari Party Tablescape

We lined the table with a striking Grass Table Runner to evoke a lush and verdant jungle feel. Its realistic texture adds depth to the tabletop, making it an eye-catching focal point. We love incorporating faux grass into parties!

Party Tip: Faux grass table runners and covers are perfect for various parties, including tea party bridal showers, football birthdays, camping parties, farm baby showers, and so much more!

Leo the Lion Plate | The Party Darling

We like to spice things up, so we mixed and matched place settings with various safari-themed plates! This setting has a Peaches 'n' Cream Dinner Plate as the base with a precious Lion Dessert Plate on top. 

Each place setting includes a Lion Shaped Dessert Napkin in the top left corner, giving the appearance of a lion leaping over the plates. In addition, a Let's Get Wild Lunch Napkin adds an extra pop of coordination to our wild theme and a more functional way to clean up messes!

Then we provided each seat a Gold and White Reusable Fork for those non-finger food options. 

Let's Get Wild Party Animal Place Setting | The Party Darling

This alternative place setting includes a Get Wild Safari Animal Plate, which showcases our party's color palette and safari animals ready to party! 

Party Tip: Mix and match dinnerware to create a unique and personal look for your tablescape. Have fun experimenting with different colors, patterns, and textures until you find a combination you love.

Gold Cup Safari Party | The Party Darling

We supplied our guests with elegant Posh Gold Cups to sip yummy drinks. The solid gold color complements our tableware without being too distracting.
