African Safari 4th Birthday Party

My 'big' boy turned 4 recently and got to celebrate his birthday in my home country - Zimbabwe, Africa. So, what better theme to have than an African Safari party.

Read on for lots of pics, followed by creative details. All of the Party Printables are available in my shop as Instant Downloads.

KIDS TABLE

SAFARI CUPCAKES

We made the cupcakes ourselves, covered in white icing and using red and blue sprinkles to resemble 'ants'! Wondering about that cool cupcake tower? Designed and laser cut by my mum's company Screen Speed!

I designed some themed toppers for the cupcakes, and used the paper patterns that were incorporated throughout the party to make coordinating "cupcake wrappers".

MONKEY POPS

These were quick and easy and loved by the kiddes - I bought monkey sweets from our local supermarket and used icing to 'glue' 2 faces together with a pop stick in the middle. The pop stand was another fabulous creation by Screen Speed.

CROC-CORN

Savoury and Sweet popcorn were served in coordinating party theme popcorn cones and displayed in ANOTHER great stand designed by Screen Speed.

JUNGLE JUICE

Juice bottles were dressed up using hessian fabric and wrapped with custom labels for the kids. I also designed some straw flags to add a little detail to the straws.

MUD PIES

These were little round shaped brownies covered in nutella - HEAVENLY.

SAFARI SANDWICHES

We also made up some 'WILD' animal shaped sandwiches with the kids favourite fillings - peanut butter, nutella and marmite.

GROWN-UP TABLE 

CRÈME BRULEE

My mum made my all time favourite dessert - crème brûlée - topped with crushed meringue. These were served in little jars that were trimmed with coordinating hessian fabric and I designed some little scalloped party circles to go on each jar.

VEGGIE SHOTS

Trying to bring some healthiness to the table I served batons of carrots, cucumber and pepper in shot glasses with roasted onion hummus and again these had the party circles with either the number 4 or Levi's name.

MUD BALLS

These were home-made meatballs served with a sweet chilli dipping sauce

RED VELVET CAKE

The ultimate cake covered in cream cheese frosting, topped with meringues and sprinkled with chocolate powder - nuff said!
