I cannot believe it is right around the corner. As in less than 4-months away! Gosh...I'll have a one year old! When did this happen? I am excited and nervous at the same time. Excited because she is growing up so fast and nervous because she is growing up so fast. Make sense? Well, I want her to grow of course but the faster she grows, the more I realize she'll be more independent of me. Anyways, I am starting to babble.
So JOE's birthday is going to be a jungle themed birthday party. Like I have said in my previous blogs, I am not OBSESSED with Pintrest. I have been pinning things away for months and I guess now is the time to start working on these items.
I have pinned the following items for the menu and also for decor. I need your help to come up with catchy "jungle themed" names for these items. Some of the items, I have assigned names but am open to suggestions. I plan on making place cards for everything. Similar to these -
|Food place cards|
|Jungle Vines (Green Twizzlers)|
|Rock Balls (chicken nugget balls...these might end up being BBQ meatballs)|
|Tiger Tails (Cheetos)|
|Volcano (chocolate cakes with colored icing)|
|Jungle Twigs (Pretzel sticks)|
|These will just be cookies on a platter|
|Wild Mushroom (marchmellows & apples)|
|Forest Dwellers (Options of PB&J, Jelly, Nutella/Banana and Cheese sandwiches)|
|Tiki Huts (These will be shorter hot dogs wrapped in croissants and topped with cheese)|
|Ants on a log (celery, peanut butter and raisins)|
|Animal Kingdom (Party favors with animal crackers)|
|I plan on making something similar to this. I need to get on this one cause I think it'll be time consuming.|
|Hubby's friend paints murals. We have asked him to do something similar for the kids to take pictures. We will include pictures of each kid in the thank you note we send out.|
|These will be animal print balloons. Saving the idea of using the cones for future birthdays :-).|
So go ahead and give me some name ideas.
