My little girl is obsessed with creepy crawlies, so a reptile theme was a natural choice for her 5th party. We had a reptile come in with lizards, snakes, turtles and more that the kids could hold to truly make the theme! Turns out, reptile decorations were a little tricky, so we ended up merging the reptile party with a zoo theme and just love the end result. Here’s how you can pull the look together!
Reptile Party Set-up
We rented out a community hall for this reptile party (woo, no mess to clean up at home). We simply picked a wall and set up the party table there. It was nice and easy!
- The feature has to be the amazing backdrop. You can shop it here>>>
- The animal balloons were a nice touch around the table, without going to the trouble of creating a DIY balloon garland. The confetti balloons also add such a great touch, but they can be messy to clean up! You can shop them here>>>
- Tigers are my daughter’s favourite animal, so we naturally had to include one! You can shop him here>>>
- The green vines we wrapped around the edge were from a previous party and make such a great banner! You can shop them here>>>
- Finally, the number balloon is always a great way to make a statement! Shop yours here>>>
Reptile Party Food
Rather than sticking with the theme, we simply went with traditional party food to keep things nice and simple for this one. There was a cheese board for the adults, along with fairy bread, dips, chips, lollies and your traditional pies and sausage rolls came around as well.
The birthday girl got first turn for holding all the reptiles and then her friends were picked out to have a go as well.
The snake was a popular one for those brave enough!
Reptile Party Cake
We went with a zoo cake as it was an easy one to do. Even better, the birthday girl was able to help with it as well, which she loved.
The cake looked nice and impressive, but was actually quite simple. You can see the how-to zoo cake here.
