Custom Inspiration Board: Lion First Birthday

Hello to one and all! After a much-needed 2 week vacation with family, I'm back and ready to jump back into inspiration!

This inspiration board was created earlier this summer for a lion-themed first birthday.

Sources: lion costume, paper poms, lion invitation, paw cookies, lion coloring page, birthday shirt, lion paper plates, jungle gym, lion cake

Some ideas for this party:

- Sign saying "King of the Jungle" near a swing set or Jungle Gym (for young guests).
- Tissue paper fringe around signs, banners, even plates or other decorations to resemble a lion's mane.
- Paper poms in reds, oranges, and browns.
- Paw print cookies, party mix labeled "lion chow", or, for some playful humor , deli meats for sandwiches with a "lion food" label.
- Play music from The Lion King soundtrack
- Crafts for young guests: lion coloring pages, lion mask-making with paper plates, craft eyes, and felt. (Masks could double as favors as well).

I can't wait to share more fun ideas and parties in the next few days!
