Most likely, the majority of your friends haven't spent a great deal of time in the jungle, so throwing a "Welcome to the Jungle" party is a great way to offer a unique party experience to your guests. Celebrate the rich plant and animal life of the tropical rainforest by putting a jungle twist on your party elements.
You wouldn't want to wear your Sunday's best into the jungle, so encourage everyone at your "Welcome to the Jungle" theme party to wear a costume fit for the Amazon. Just as there are endless varieties of species in the jungle, your guests can choose from a variety of different costumes for your party. Guests can dress up in full khaki outfits, accessorising with binoculars and canteens, to play jungle explorers on an expedition. Wilder guests can wrap themselves in faux leopard or cheetah print and/or loincloths and take on Tarzan-like roles. The real party animals can dress up as elephants, monkeys and lions.
While your guests may not be trudging through a real hot and steamy jungle, begging for food and drink, you'll still need to provide a decent array of food to keep the party going. Serve your guests fresh coconut milk. Leave out a dish of cashew nuts. Offer your guests servings of crab and shrimp. Whip up some traditional party food and come up with some jungle-themed names. For example, you could prepare pork and tell everyone it's "Wild Hog" or cook some chicken and name it "Barbecued Snake."
If you can't afford to send your guests to Madagascar, bring the jungle home with you. Turn your party venue into a habitat fit for zebras and gorillas with some jungle-themed decorations. Buy leopard-print balloons, banners, plates and tablecloths. Replace the plants in your home with mini potted palm trees. Place bamboo beaded curtains in door openings. Hang rope from the ceiling to simulate real jungle vines. Cut out some animal pictures from National Geographic and tape them to the wall.
