10 Theme Ideas for Events


2
African Safari

Since a real-life safari involves many different animals, have fun with this theme indoors by setting up stuffed animals or life-size cutouts of giraffes, elephants and tigers. For those who can afford it, have the party in the backyard and bring live animals for a petting zoo! A safari theme is a popular choice for children's birthday parties and baby showers, but adults can get in on the fun, too. Serve food on wooden platters and bowls, and decorate with animal prints, burlap and -- if you can find them -- antlers and tusks! Grill out and make kabobs as an entrée and whip up a jungle-themed cocktail or juice to drink. As guests are departing, give kids animal crackers and adults trail mix to enjoy after the event is over.
