Lay the table :
We’d recommend starting off with some basic jungle party supplies like these ones and then adding your own personal touches.
How about leaving a little animal-themed toy next to each plate for your guests to play with when they arrive? This is a great way to keep your little ones occupied while you dish out the food and they can take their toy home in a party bag.
Put up your decorations:
Now it’s time to think about jungle decorations. It’s easy to get carried away but keeping things simple can be very effective and work wonders for staying under budget.
Take this DIY balloon tree – it looks brilliant and it couldn’t be easier to put together with a couple of balloons and some tissue paper for the tree trunk. For an even more impressive look, we’d recommend putting a jungle scene setter like this on the wall first.
Serve jungle themed party food :
Themed food will bring your whole jungle party decorations together and show you’ve paid attention to detail. But if you don’t have time to make anything extravagant, have a go at these simple jungle cupcakes.
All you need is a batch of simple homemade or shop-bought cupcakes and some jungle animal sugar decorations to decorate them with. We’ve even thrown in some free cupcake toppers as an extra treat, and a great way to make themed party food on a budget.

Next up, it’s our free colour-in animal masks! This is a good party activity to have up your sleeve in case your little monkeys start getting a bit hyper, and all you need to do is attach a piece of elastic so that they can wear it afterwards.
