Nathan’s Party Animals Themed Party – 1st Birthday

Charming and adorable animals are a staple to any party-theme for little kids. It is probably one of the most popular inspirations especially for boys who just turn one! What is great about this theme is that there are so many elements to choose from and the color palette can be anything from lively and vibrant to soft and pastels. Now, who else can turn this common theme into an incredible one, no other than the amazing style team from Kaye Garcia Events. They used orange, yellow, green, and blue as the main hues of this bash, and definitely created an enjoyable and fun feel. Marvelous job by the style team to put-up together all sorts of decorations, from tassels, buntings, paper honeycomb balls, to paper lanterns; to embellish the party venue. Not to mention the darling party animal standees which made Nathan’s birthday bash roaring with cuteness! Good thing the awesome event coordinator from Party Starters (Nathan’s very own Auntie Maan) was there to help organize all the chaos of this wild and fun soiree.

Who’s ready to take a closer look at this party from the get-go? Don’t fret, as we don’t need to trail the jungle to experience this affair; Louie Arcilla Photography got us covered with some snaps from this whimsical blowout.

Green and orange ribbons, and orange and white tassels tied-up to floating white balloons are what will welcome our party seekers. It’s like cutting through tree vines towards a fun and exciting adventure. What a perfect way to set the mood.

Clean and simple, yet so chic and classic. A perfect way to define this all-white ensemble. The ceiling was filled-up with white round paper lanterns that makes looking up so refreshing, just like looking at the clouds.

Cute and charming. That’s how I would describe this stage set-up. The pastel colored backdrop was adorned with shades of green honeycomb balls, purple and orange buntings, and white and orange tassels. These perfectly blended with the theme and color hues. But the highlight of the stage is the stellar cast of party animals — a giraffe, a zebra, a lion and a hippo.

Kiddie and adult tables were dressed up in white and orange. Buntings of shades of green were wrapped around the adult table to add color and an earthy feel. Party animals lined up on the orange table runner to parade their party hats.

The perfect cake for this birthday theme! Cuppy Puppy Bakehouse nailed it, making a white two-tier cake and decorating it with colorful tidbits. Dolled up party animals topped the delightful looking cake making it a lot more festive.


Look at how mouth-watering and delightful these sweets are. There is a hint of “party animal” in every bit of luscious goody. Each yummy is designed to tempt every guest’s sweet tooth and to be visually pleasing. Here’s a visual high-five to Joanna of Cuppy Puppy Bakehouse, your awesomeness knows no bound.

Keeping the party goers entertained is what Jester Tallod, the Host/Magician, does best. He never fails to captivate his audience with his tricks and illusions of seemingly impossible or magical feats.


This party was made even more remarkable with its array of food carts. One of the most favorite food carts nowadays is the cotton candy food cart, and one of the popular names that comes to mind is Pouf Cotton Candy. Other food carts available at Nathan’s bash are: FIC, Potato Corner, Blue Food Bar, and Taho.

Nathan’s little guests definitely loved the bunch of activities this party offered. Great job to Crafts & Party Bucket to put together creative and fun arts and crafts activities for the kids to enjoy. Another unique and inspiring activity that is becoming a trend is the “decorate a plush” activity, which La Pomme offers. And who doesn’t like blocks and sand? I just love that kids are able to play with and experience Smart Play’s Lego, Megablocks and Kinetic Sand.

Now here’s a party that has so much goodies to give away! And they are all party-animal-themed! Everything is screaming with cuteness, from the balloons, headbands, to fans and stickers. Every kiddo would love to get their hands to these loots!
