Giraffe Print Party Decor Ideas:
- The key to planning a classy giraffe print party is to not go overboard with the giraffe print. Too much giraffe could end up looking too busy and a bit tacky. We recommend using a giraffe print for your basic party supplies like plates, napkins, and paper lanterns. You could also get a few yards of giraffe print fabric to hang as a backdrop behind the food or gift table.
- Once you have your giraffe basics, fill out the party decor with really natural and organic elements. If you want, you could add an African twist!
- In the tablescape above, we used an ivory tablecloth, a burlap table runner, and dark brown woven table mats. As a centerpiece, we filled a cylindrical hurricane vase with sand, stones, leafy plants, and an orange flower. This really natural palate fits will with the splashes of giraffe print.
