Jungle Themed 1st Birthday Party

I was busy planning a Modern Chic Safari birthday party when I remembered that I never shared this Jungle Themed 1st Birthday Party on my blog. I had the wonderful opportunity of working with this gorgeous mum, Bea to create a beautiful Jungle Themed 1st birthday party for her son Legend! Bea was one of these amazing clients who gave me the full creative freedom for this event. Originally from Phillipines and living in South Africa, she loved the South African wildlife thus this theme was born.

We created the dessert table from palettes to give it the Jungle authenticity it needed. We had a massive and beautiful yard in the heart of Bryanston to work with. The garden was already filled with these gorgeous trees and plants, thus adding to the overall effect of this Jungle themed 1st Birthday party.

Jungle Themed 1st Birthday Party Decor

We thoroughly enjoyed styling this birthday party by working with a natural and earthy color palette as well as lots of green. The theme was beautifully carried throughout the decor and goodies. Some of the decor elements included crates, bamboo, cut outs of the big five, log under-plates, furry animals, African masks and so much more!

Outlandish Events, used wood barks to display all the goodies creating a natural jungle effect on the main dessert table. A variety of bespoke desserts featured on our main table such as Lindt Tart, Caramel Peanut Brittle Dessert and Baklava Cheesecake Pops. The cupcakes, cakes, cake pops and cookies were beautifully made to tie in to this Jungle themed 1st Birthday Party.  This dessert table looked like a real African feast!

For lunch, my client opted for a delicious spit braai along with some mouth-watering salads, chicken pieces, ribs and sausages! The photos really does make my mouth water and I am sure yours will too – so be sure to contact us to find out about our delicious catering options for any event, large or small.

We really enjoyed planning this birthday party for Legend and it was such a pleasure to meet Bea and her family. They were very friendly and welcoming!

    That looks like such a fun party! Love the animal-themed cupcakes; not sure if I should eat them or save them…because they’re so cute! And oh that mouse (?? little brown critter) looks adorable perched by the cake. Birthday boy looks very into it too!
