Calling All Party Animals!
Last weekend, party animals came out of the woods for a roaring good time (grrr, couldn't help myself). My four-year old loves animals and breakfast so we combined his favorite things for a super fun time! My advice for menus is to keep it simple and easy to make and eat. Our menu was bacon on a stick, donut holes on a stick, fresh fruit cups and marinated sandwiches. We served orange juice, milk and coffee in awesome animal cups. I purchased the cake and decorated with animals and a tiny pendant garland. Delicious, fun and couldn't be easier!
Decor was bright in color mixed with a natural feel in the newspaper, craft paper, twine, etc. My absolute favorite things were the tiny hats I made for his toy animals. Cutest! I painted a large canvas black and used chalk on it for the sign behind the elephant stilts tub. I tried my hand, for the first time, with face painting and had so much fun doing it. I discovered when you're drawing on someone's FACE, you best not mess up! My father-in-law even got in on the action (hysterical!). Happy Birthday, to my sweet, filthy animal!
Happy Birthday, Tiger!
