Amazing Jungle Themed First Birthday Party

animal jungle party dessert table

Welcome to the {super adorable} Jungle! Linda of Harper Event Design styled this fabulous Jungle Themed Birthday Party for a milestone first birthday celebration. The illustrated backdrop and fondant work by Kiss My Cakes is just incredible! Which fondant animal is your favorite? It’s a tough call, but I’m leaning towards that precious lion peeking out of the bottom of the cake. :)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Yellow lunch boxes embellished with playful animal illustrations
– Burlap, moss & bamboo decor + giant monstera leaves used as placemats
– Amazing fondant cake & cupcake toppers featuring giraffes, snakes, monkey’s & lions!
– Lion & zebra sugar cookies displayed on beds of aqua jelly beans
– “Jungle Juice” and “Animal Ale” beverages
