Today’s real party is a modern affair created by the talented Chris Nease of Celebrations At Home. While Chris created this chic safari tablescape and dessert table for a girl’s night, it would also be perfect for a bridal shower or even a baby shower. With pink zebra print, white jungle animals and tropical foliage, you’ll go wild for this sassy safari.
My inspiration came from the hot pink zebra striped cocktail napkins, and was reinforced after seeing Amy Atlas’ pink & orange zebra dessert table. I purchased a pink zebra sheet set, and some safari animals from Ross and Marshalls and got to work. I spray painted the animals white, and added adhesive gems for eyes. I added faux palm and tropical leaves, flowers and a few feathers to add to the look.
For the dessert table I made brownie pops, cheesecake tartlets, lemon bars, and purchased iced cookies and candies. I hung flower bud tubes along the zebra backdrop. A cocktail table was set up with a Mosquito netting hanging above, and lemonade/lemoncello cocktail set inside of a small suitcase. My fuzzy round rug made a perfect “table cloth” for the table with its fur-like texture.
A special thanks to Chris for sharing this charming party with us! Be sure to check out her blog, Celebrations at Home, for more her wonderful work along with loads of great party inspiration.
