 Here’s what Laila said about planning the party- “This year for my daughter’s third birthday party, I decided to celebrate her love for animals and throw her a colorful animal centered party. I started the design process by illustrating silhouettes of her favorite animals and then deciding to go with a bright and very colorful color palette. The invitations featured all the colors and so the party began to take shape. I fell in love with the look of succulents and enlisted Isabel Isaac from Isaac Farms to create the three centerpieces I used for the adult tables. My daughter’s only request was that actual animals showed up to the party (well that and lots of candies and a cake of course) so I searched and found through my talented baker, Safari Edventures here in Miami. I always team up with Brantley from Sweet Brantley’s for anything that has to do with sweets. She translated the invitation and the look of the party so well into our 3 tiered cake!

For the party favors, I found perfect safari themed puzzles at target and wrapped them in kraft paper. I used the patterns I had created to print a large sticker to wrap around the presents and did a circular tag with each child’s name on it to put on top of that. I knew from the very beginning that I wanted crates, the problem was that I wanted a more vintage look than most of the store bought crates have, so I collected hand stamped wine crates that I found had more personality. To give the party a more festive look, I added the crates full of tillandsias and the moss around the crates. I bought plastic animals I used to decorate the tables and to fill the piñata as well.

For the linens, I knew I wanted burlap to offset the colors of the bright decorations I had done, so I did an off white linen and a burlap overlay in all the food tables, I used colorful linens for the rest of the tables. To make it even more colorful, I purchased balloons, I wanted to add a special touch to some of the balloons, so I purchased 1″ confetti (in the colors of the party) and hand filled clear balloons with them. I found they gave the party that extra special touch.”

    Beautiful party. I am looking to plan a very similar party for a friend’s daughter’s 2nd birthday. I am wondering how/where did you find the colored animal silhouettes background/print for the banner, place cards and such? I am having some luck with Google and also thinking of playing around with Photoshop. But, I was wondering if you did them another (easier) way? Thank you.

    I really love your banner and the labels you had all over your party bags with the colorful animal prints where can I buy this or did you make it yourself??? If so can if you still have it can I buy it from you??? And I must ask how did you create the glitter giraffe ?! It’s sooo creative :)
