Zoo Animal Birthday Party Decorating Ideas

Want to throw a zoo animal-themed birthday bash for your little party animals?  It’s a wildly popular theme right now, and it’s easier than you might think! With zoo animal party accessories and a little creative decorating, you can create a party kids will go wild for.  Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Begin with a zoo-riffic table cover and disposable tableware. These items help set the scene, plus they make cleanup super easy.
  • Palm leaves are a quick and easy way to add some animal flair to your birthday party. Use palm leaves as table decorations or placemats. You can also string the leaves together (or glue them together) to create a leafy garland.  
  • Place napkins and eating utensils inside zoo animal-themed cups. You can also fill some extra cups with wrapped candies, mints or small party favors and place them on the center of the table.
  • Instead of baking and decorating a cake, make cupcakes, add frosting and then top them with zoo animal picks. Cupcakes are easy to serve and eat, plus they save you lots of preparation time.
  • Fill favor boxes or bags with favors that match your zoo animal party theme. Rings, tattoos, candy packs and clappers are popular party picks.

With a little planning and imagination, you can pull off a zoo animal party the kids will be wild about! Start planning now for the best kids’ birthday party ever!
