I had the pleasure of collaborating with Shindigz on this party animal theme! Thoughtfully Styled received products and/or payment for this post.
Friends, I was beginning to wonder if this party would ever happen! With the help of Shindigz we planned and planned our kiddos’ 8th birthday party down to the last detail. The party animal theme was so much fun. However, when the party day arrived we set everything up at our local park and then RAIN! Lots and lots of rain, thunder and lightning! We chose the park because we are currently living in a rental house as our new home is being built. Our rental just isn’t equipped for a big party. So, we chose a new date, saved one of our amazing cakes and set it ALL up again!
My favorite thing about Shindigz is personalization of their party decor! They have SO many choices and themes it’s hard to narrow down what you want. We worked with Shindigz last year as well. See the Rainbow Unicorn party here and the Basketball party here!
Every paper product, sign, and detail was personalized which made the party decor special. The kids loved seeing their names!
Y’all know of my deep love for Cake Conspiracy! Cheryl delivers the best looking and most amazing tasting cakes year after year. This year she indulged me and let me decorate the top of the cake. ha!
sort of freaked out when the party had to be cancelled and rescheduled. Cake Conspiracy had made us 2 amazing cakes. I didn’t know what I’d do since we had to reschedule for 2 weeks later. I contacted Cheryl and she walked me through the process of freezing and defrosting the cake. It worked perfectly and tasted wonderfully! No one could believe this cake had been frozen! The strawberries and cream cake was delicious!
Of course a giant elephant standee is in order for a party animal theme!
I think these letter dishes are adorable! I love that we can use them year after year and fill with the kids’ favorite treats. The price is great as well.
The Woodlands Cookie Co. created perfect cookies for our party. Look at those animals, SO cute! These adorable cookies are some of my favorites from The Woodlands Cookie Co. as well.
We love making fun party gifts for our guests. This year we filled the party favor boxes with bendable animals, zoo paddle balls, animal squeeze balls, and personalized lollipops.
We devoured one of the cakes on the date of the first party since it was my kids’ actual birthday. For my plan B, I made a layered cookie cake with cream cheese icing between each layer. He LOVED it!
Jack and Sophie decided that in lieu of birthday gifts they would ask their friends to bring items for The Moses Closet. The Moses Closet helps provide resources for foster families in our area. They gathered 859 diapers, 38 packages of wipes, and 10 Children’s Bibles! We have such generous family and friends!
Shindigz even made a personalized yard sign for our donations!
