Of all the adorable ideas for First Birthday Parties, a Wild ONE theme may be one of my all time favorites! It’s totally versatile, lends itself to many decor options and works for a little girl or a little boy. Today we’re sharing a darling Wild ONE Safari Birthday Party! Get ready for an expedition into fun as we tour this 1st birthday party for some fabulous party inspiration!
When little Beckham turned one, his family and friends gathered to celebrate his big day with a Wild ONE Safari Party! Lovingly planned and decorated by his grandmas, guests were in for a fabulous expedition through the jungle with plenty of wild creatures to see along the way. Let me show you some of my favorite elements from the party…
Safari Party Decor and Dessert Ideas
The dessert table really stole the show and set the tone for the decor at this first birthday party! The words “Beckham’s Safari” were framed by a stunning green and white balloon arch with palm leaves, which perfectly showcased all of the delicious desserts (more on those in a minute)! In addition, the giant ONE gold balloons had ivy woven through them and a giant stuffed lion keeping guard.
Beautiful Bakery provided the cake and gorgeous sweet treats at this party! The towering safari themed cake featured a ton of wild animals and was accompanied by animal cake pops, custom cookies, worms in dirt and a super fun animal print donut tower!
Wild ONE Photo Booth Inspiration
The cutest safari-themed photo booth was set up for Beckham too! A green leafy backdrop was framed in by hanging sloths and adorned with the words WILD ONE. Palm plants on either side highlighted an awesome Safari Jeep – perfect for the birthday boy to pose with his friends and then play with afterwards (here’s a similar green Jeep which would make a fabulous birthday gift)!
And how cute is this DIY sign they made? I love the giant giraffe and monkey hanging off of it too!
Safari Party Favors
An Animal Adoption Station is the perfect activity and party favor for a young child’s birthday party. How adorable are these wild animal Beanie Babies?! The giraffe, monkey, bears and other wild animals placed inside an open picnic basket are just too cute! And I absolutely love the Adoption Certificates to make it all so official!
First Birthday Cake Smash
Finally, what’s a First Birthday Party without a cake smash?! Beckham posed for pictures with Mom and Dad in his high chair, lined with an animal print ONE banner (you can find an adorable Safari themed version with animals here) and then was turned loose on the big cake in front of his jeep. I think it’s safe to say he loved it!
I hope you enjoyed this playful Wild ONE Safari Birthday Party as much as we did and were able to find some inspiration for your next celebration! Be sure to Pin this post to your party planning board!
