It’s A Jungle Out There! Grayson’s 7th Birthday Party – Cute Boy Jungle / Crocodile / Snake Birthday Party with But First Party

Grayson is turning 7 this year (cue the water works) and I wanted to make a really cute and fun Instagrammable / Pinterest-worthy birthday for him.

As a mom of both a boy and a girl, I can tell you that it’s so much easier to make anything girl-themed beautiful than for boys.  From clothing and accessories to parties, girl-themes are just fun and relatively easy.

But for boys, we are mostly left with generic party themes and decor that feels like a cartoon show threw up all over the room.  While there’s nothing at all wrong with buying party decor at say the drug store or Target, I really like a highly edited party, whether it’s for Grayson or Harper.

Enter my good friend Royale from But First Party, who has a boy herself and can therefore transform any party into an incredible occasion.

Grayson absolutely loved our trip to Costa Rica where we rafted down a river on a jungle cruise.  He also loved our trips to Riviera Maya in Mexico and Punta Cana in Dominican Republic, which also both feature lush jungles and tons of animals.

So we went with the It’s A Jungle Out There theme….and you guys…. it turned out absolutely MAGICAL!

There’s actually a little story behind this theme.  I met with Royale at Bonjour Fête with the shop owner Rachel (another Rachel!) back in January to pick out the products for Harper’s party (plates, trays, etc).

As we were walking around the shop, Royale showed me the crocodiles and said she loved them and wished she could use them for a shoot soon.

Even though Grayson’s favorite things right now are Star Wars, Minecraft, Soccer and Baseball, I knew he had the best time during our Jungle Cruise in Costa Rica the month before.

I knew he would absolutely love this playful and fun theme, and it’s a unique and modern party theme.

Royale also told me jungle / palm fronds / lots of green would be a big theme coming up, along with toucans.

I bought the garland that is hanging individually from the sky (along with some crocodile plates) that day and boy, was she ever right!

Royale is quite a trend visionary and party styling genius.  The styling as I mentioned before was all done by But First Party.

We bought everything at Bonjour Fête of course!! My favorite party boutique. That store is so dangerous to go into because you’ll seriously end up wanting everything!!

The amazing balloons are by Meri Meri, which is my go-to brand for party decor.

The little snake cups are so cute, we just put snake gummies inside them as a treat. Super easy and adorable.

The amazing cakes are by Sugar Crush Sweets, she makes the most beautiful cakes EVER! We got a cake by her for Harper’s birthday and knew we had to do it again.

This party could not have come together without the help of all these talented people! Grayson was so happy with how everything turned out, and we can’t thank everyone enough.
