Looking at these pictures, I still can't believe my little girl is three.
She really is growing up fast.
Guests were greeted by a party animal sign and fun balloons (which doubled as part of the favor for kids to take home). We had the balloons displayed throughout including the gift table.
We also purchased inexpensive animal print paper strips (Oriental Trading) to be used with the banner as well as on the drinks for a fun, small touch. We used a kiddie pool for the watering hole and placed peanuts on the tables as a simple, edible centerpiece.
We had a few main party activities including a safari hunt and face painting.
This was the perfect gift!
When you plan your next party, remember it doesn't have to be an expensive blow out! A great party is in the good company and small touches throughout. Be creative!
