My baby boy turned 2 over the weekend! Drew LOVES LOVES LOVES animals and so we planned an animal safari for his big day. We called it "Drewsie's 2 wild safari" and it was adorable! Thankfully we had awsome weather for the day too! A perfect 65 and sunny February day! Gotta love California!
This was Drew's invite:
I found this Giraffe print tissue paper at a local store and used it to cover a wooden A for the entrance. The green zebra print is a bandanna from hobby lobby I added for a pop of color.
Andrew's main cake was difficult to narrow down. There are so many cute safari ideas! I decided on this giraffe print because I really wanted to stay away from fondant and it seemed easy.
The give away favors were these super yummy chocolate covered "zebra tail" pretzels.

The snack table included Tiger Tails (Cheetos), Zebra cakes, Gorrilla grub (Banana pudding), Sugar cookies, animal crackers (which happened to be jungle edition!) and marshmallow grass pops.
I made a ton of vines to use for the backdrop. I have a tutorial here: Jungle Vines tutorial
Loved this don't feed the animals sign. :)
I left the hungry hippo out in case anyone wanted to play. No one did though.
My Genius hubby decided fruit was an awesome centerpiece and yummy too!Safari Vest tutorial

Our Jeep even ended up as decor!
Jungle Juice (Pineapple juice and 7up) and Swamp water (Ice tea)
Zoo pals happened to have a Safari edition out for their plates and cups. PERFECT!
My favorite part was when someone asked how much Henry the hippo weighed and he replied "He doesn't like to talk about his weight. It's an issue" HAHAHA!
Andrew actually decided to join in this activity!
