Modern Safari Ladies Gathering

This is a wonderful Modern Safari Ladies Gathering that Chris from Celebrations at Home sent me. I will let her tell you all the party details in her own words. This would be a great theme for any ladies event or bridal shower. Minus the cocktail factor and some cute child animals, it would also make for a pretty {baby girl} baby shower.

Modern Safari Ladies Party

A cocktail table was set up to serve a lemonade-Lemoncello mixture (YUM!). I hung mosquito netting (I’ve had for years) above, and set the drinks inside a small ‘suitcase’ lined with white feathers. My fuzzy round rug made the perfect “table cloth” with it’s fur-like texture, and more cocktail monkeys were hung on the glasses.

To help set the tone I purchase the pink zebra sheet set and used it for a runner and the dessert backdrop. For the dinner table, I bought some safari animal home decor pieces and spray painted them white, then added adhesive gems for the eyes. The monkey is supposed to hold a votive candle but I added water to the well and popped in a gerber daisy head. For the centerpiece, I nestled some floral foam on top of the white vase and covered it with yellow daisies, topping it off with a few pink feathers. Flowers from my yard, as well as moss balls from Social Couture finished the table.

At each place setting I added a faux tropical leaf, small flower clipping and a Duet Truffle that I wrapped in coordinating tissue and ribbon. I added a band of green paper and yellow zebra ribbon (Michael’s $1 bin) across the plate and hung a cute pink cocktail elephant on each glass. Seriously, everyone loved the hanging elephants and monkeys!
For dessert I made brownie pops, cream cheese tartlets, lemon bars (in zebra liners), and purchased iced cookies and candies. I hung bud-vase vials with a single flower in each, as part of the backdrop. These were a $1 find at Dollar Tree! Faux palm leaves lined the tartlet plates.
