Gold Safari 1st Birthday Party
Gold Safari Birthday Party Details:
Storm’s party description- “Well I must say that this past year has flown by! I feel like I just blinked and my tiny newborn turned one. I always knew that I wanted to throw a themed party for hist first birthday. I feel like for boys you are limited with ideas!
During the year we used to take Xavi to the Zoo and I always loved the greenery, animals and being out in nature. Its something I really want to expose him to as he grows.
I also wanted something that wasn’t traditionally done for a first birthday. So the Gold Safari idea was born! A mix of greenery, animals with classy gold finishing.
I went about making mood boards before I contacted all the local Perth business to help me bring the vision to light. I choose to use small businesses run my mums, as I really wanted to support local.
I began organising everything at least 3/4 months out! I also did a lot of things myself and was very particular about every detail.
For the kids we hired a ball pit, slide, pony cycles and had stickers and zoo animal masks for them to play with. They loved the pony cycles so much! I would definitely use them again!
I didn’t want to do lolly bags for the kids so their gift boxes contained:
- A plastic zoo animal
- Play doh
- Zoo Tattoo
- Custom cookie
The masks, bubbles, stickers and tattoo were from Discount Party Supplies. They have so many different themes and party supplies on their site!
I choose Halo Events as my event/styling company and they also provided the animal props, ONE table, big balloon displays, welcome stand and all the setup. They were so incredible to work with and as always, did an amazing job.
All the other amazing businesses are listed below and I would highly recommend everyone I used and would use them again. All of them went above and beyond to help and bring the Gold Safari vision to light!”
