a difficult time creating a 'jungle feel' at your Animal
Planet party? Find fun jungle or animal print fabric at
a local craft or hobby store. Find a pattern with dense,
jungle leaves and decorate the entrance to your party
with it (both sides of the entranceway.) Some green streamers
draped densely from above the door could cover the overhead
area, your fabric creates the jungle "sides."
Use green light bulbs in the area and shine them on the
plants, streamers or fabric to add to the foliage feel.
idea for an inexpensive jungle, get a lot of green streamers.
Try to get at least two different shades of green and
maybe one brown roll, too. Hang and droop the streamers
randomly and densely throughout the party area
NOT just overhead. You can make green construction paper
leaves to tape to the streamers. If you have some artificial
vines and leaves, you can sprinkle these around among
so you'll have the leaves of a jungle
and the streamers will "fill in" the rest of
the space. Let the 'vines' you create hang to the floor,
wrap around some of the furniture, even squiggle on the
ground. As long as it doesn't look uniform (the way normal
streamers might) it will add the great jungle colors to
your event. You can also hang some in doorways as 'vines'
blocking the path and your guests will have to brush aside
the vines as they walk about! Use green light bulbs in
the area and shine them on the plants, streamers or fabric
to add to the foliage feel.
an indoor tree for your Animal Planet party! Get a roll
of brown package paper. Unroll a piece about 15 feet long.
Crinkle and twist the paper over and over again. Now you
can take the twisted "trunk" and attach it to
the wall with thumbtacks, poster tack or tape. Try not
to make a trunk that is straight up and down. Make some
smaller twisted lengths of packaging paper as offshoot
branches. Use green streamers to create "leaves"
for the tree. You can take small lengths and crunch them
together, then tape the bunch to the wall as a few leaves.
You could also have your guests cut out leaves for your
tree. Use construction paper and have them cut different
leaves to tape to the wall.
some inflatable Animal Planet animals for your table,
to hang from various places, or just to prop up around
the party. If you cannot find them at a party supply store,
check Oriental Trading Company. (Quest does not have any
professional affiliation with OTC) They typically sell
the animals by the dozen - but that means you can fill
a lot of space easily. They could also be great parting
gifts. Swimming pool supply stores or departments of larger
stores often have inflatable animal products as well.
Make paper plate snakes for your Animal Planet party!
Get simple paper plates and cut them in a spiral Start
from the outer edge and cut into the plate in a circular,
spiral pattern (making several rotations into the plate
before making your way to the center.) Once you're near
the center, create a knob for the head of the snake. You
can hang the snake with thread, twine or ribbon
even wrap them around your vines and streamers.
animal food at your Animal Planet party! Healthy party
food can be more appealing if you tell your guests they
are eating like the animals. You can serve strange foods,
or just name them differently. Thin french fries can be
elephant hay. Salad is salad, of course. Monkey bananas.
