Serve your guests some delicious birthday cake with these adorable zebra and tiger dessert plates. You can serve hot or cold drinks in these bright-colored cups which go well with the overall color scheme. Just add in some black and white striped paper straws to create a wild table setting to remember! 

I also added these cute mini jungle animal figurines on the rims of the cups. These animal toys make a great party favor for the little ones to play with after they finish their drink!

Balloon garlands are my favorite party decoration to use for a backdrop behind the sweets table or as a photo op area. So I picked out these colorful balloons and mixed them with the zebra print and tiger print balloons to match the festive safari-themed paper goods. You can also add a giant balloon to add more interest like this toucan one!

And if you're celebrating a birthday, this colorful Happy Birthday banner featuring wild monkeys and toucans looks fantastic when added to the balloon garland.

The tiger, zebra, and toucan mylar balloons can be air or helium filled. If you're like me and prefer air-filled, you can use them for the table decor. Fill with helium and mix with latex balloons as a centerpiece for the tables.

Safari animal figurines painted in the party colors is a simple and inexpensive party decoration to add to the table. I already had them from a previous party, so I just painted them to match. Scattering some colorful candied sprinkles down the center of the table would really tie in with the overall theme.

What better way for kids to have fun at a safari birthday party then having animal face masks! These animal masks look cute added to the chairs as extra party decor and the kids can wear them during the party or take them home in these matching colorful party favor bags.

A party animals birthday cake is not complete without some bright confetti sprinkles and topped with safari animals. You could add mini party hats for a cute touch.

Popcorn is one of my favorite and inexpensive party treats. Plus, it looks cute in these bright-colored cups adorned with a mini safari animal on the rim.

We are in love with these safari animal iced cookies we had made to match the animals in the paper goods! When serving cookies on the dessert table, just add some colorful sprinkles under them to add some pop to the party animals theme.

Plain white iced cupcakes can be easily dressed up with colored sprinkles and placed in these cute multi-colored polka dot snack cups. And you must include animal crackers as a snack for a safari-themed party!
