By  | Last Updated:  

I hope you are ready for a fun adventure, because today you’ll be joining us for a sensational boy’s safari themed birthday party: get ready for one wild ride! Rochelle, of Sweet Tables by Chelle, threw this party to celebrate her son’s 3rd birthday. You’re in for a load of inspiration as Rochelle’s eye for detail is incredible! From the fully stocked dessert table ideas complete with an amazing birthday cake to the fabulous party favor table, there is no decoration detail spared!  Grab your binoculars and take a peek at the photos by Stephen Clarke Photography.

There are so many incredible details that it’s hard to decide which aspect of the safari birthday party to start with first. The entire backyard party space looks like it was taken from the pages of a wild animal safari park brochure!

A variety of natural, outdoor and safari inspired decorations combined to create an amazing atmosphere.  I love the elephant statue and am personally obsessed with the animal food dispenser!  It looks exactly like the dispensers you find at a petting zoo.

Boys Safari Birthday Party Tour Rides Activities

To prep guests for the upcoming safari tour, a visit to the safari shop was in order. Young adventurers could stock up on essential gear and supplies before rolling out on their jeep-lead tour. Notice the adorable child-size jeep with the custom “Seth’s Safari Tours” label.  Genius!

There were pith style helmets, binoculars, canteens of water, disposable cameras, insect repellant, personalized tour passes and custom brochures (design work by Emma Smith ) with all the tour details.  Sign me up!  This party looks like so much fun!

Boys Safari Birthday Party Sweet Shop Dessert Table

All the excitement of a safari tour can take a lot out of a little person.  To refuel and rehydrate guests, Rochelle styled an impressive Safari Sweet Shop full of stylish desserts.

A burlap tablecloth topped with a greenery-inspired overlay gave way to potted green plants, animal cutouts and statues, plus a reed fence.  I love Rochelle’s use of a canopy (Piece of Cake Parties & Celebrations) to provide that sweet shop look.

Inspired by the invitation, the four layered cake by Little Wish Cakes  was an airbrushed masterpiece! Just look at that safari sunset!

Boys Safari Birthday Party Macaroons

Traditional party fare in Rochelle’s part of the world included orange jelly pots, macarons (Kaza’s Cookie Creations), chocolate mousse pots and cake pops.

There were even custom wrapped chocolate bars from “Seth’s Safari Tours”. Guests could fill their safari tour sweet bags with the candy treats of their choice (jelly beans and such).

To curb little adventurers’ thirst, mini milk bottles of chocolate milk were served. Notice the custom beverage wraps and paper straws topped with party flags.

I highly doubt any attendee at this safari birthday party wanted it to end! What a fabulous birthday adventure!
