Safari Themed First Birthday Party

I had the pleasure of planning a first birthday party for the sweetest one year old ever, Jaylen Bryce! So to give him a proper first birthday bash, we decided to go with a Safari theme for this little cutie. There were lions, and tigers and bears- OH MY!!!

We chose snacks that were suited for toddlers and preschoolers, however, you know that I had to add an Everything Sweet flare right? Right! So instead of just having goldfish crackers and pretzels, I came up with a trail mix of yummies that toddlers liked and called it "Critter Crunch". Needless to say, it was a huge hit with the kiddos!!! 

Coming up with ideas and decorating for this party was such fun! Pulling in all the different types of jungle animals really made for a wild and exotic color palette. Check it out!
