Jungle Animal Print Celebration – Themed Party Ideas

I’m not sure what the most appropriate greeting for this jungle themed animal print party would be: rawr or meow. Either one could work, but I’m going to go with rawr!

Rawr! Welcome to my jungle animal print inspired party idea board.  This animal print party inspiration board is all about incorporating animal print in a more classy and modern way. I like to think there is no gimmicky jungle props involved here. And there’s no plastic animal props here either!

When I was putting this party idea board together, I was envisioning a soiree for one of three events: a ladies luncheon, a birthday party for the modern woman, or a super sophisticated baby shower. The tropical hints found in the green foliage help balance out the mixed animal prints…..and help make this a perfect theme for a summer soiree!

Oh, and if you need even MORE inspiration, I’ve got you covered! Stop by this board on Pinterest to get more ideas for all my favorite jungle, safari, and zoo party ideas. And if you are looking for more animal print party ideas, I’ve pinned all of my favorites here on this board. I know, so many boards. Is my OCD’ness showing?

On to the leopard and animal print party I’ve been promising you. Here’s what I had in mind:

Pops of Polka Dots Soiree Inspiration

You know those days, where you just see something and it’s just lovely? It’s bright and cheery, and just brings a smile to your face when you see it? Maybe it’s a bunch of fresh flowers. Or maybe it’s a decadent dessert in a bakery window. There’s something special other there for everyone, custom tailored to make that person’s day.

For me, something that brings a huge smile to my face is my inspiration boards. I always love making them, and I am especially fond of the ones that instill an extra sense of happiness when looking at them, even on an unconscious level. There’s just something about this week’s idea board that sparks that in me, and I hope it has that effect on you too.

This week, I wanted to create a bright, cheery board sure to brighten up your day, and hopefully your guest’s days too. This theme can be used for a wedding or gala, a fundraiser, milestone anniversary party, or toned down to be a baby shower or luncheon color theme.

The touches of polka dots really help add the fun to this black and white inspiration board with those accents in yellow. Here’s what I had in mind:

Vibrant Summer Birthday Party Idea for Her

It’s later in the day – the sun is still shining. The guests are starting to arrive, and the music is the background to great conversation. The drinks are cold and the aromas of sensational food are sifting through the air. The mood is light and upbeat, with the sun shining in through the windows. A bottle of champagne is popped and the toasts for the guest of honor start.

That’s the sort of mood I’m envisioning for this week’s inspiration board. I really want something bright. Something up beat. Something high energy with a relaxed undertone. Here’s what I had in mind:

I think this would be a perfect color scheme for a woman’s birthday party this summer, but how else could you see this theme working for? Maybe a bridal shower? A wedding?
