Jungle Safari Party

Calling all party animals! Turn your home into a tropical jungle with a watering hole, treetop treats and other pun-tastic areas. If you got on the tropical leaf trend this summer, just upcycle that decor. And animal print scarves work as a great table runner. We also love these animal print party utensils from 1 Pixie Place.

Harry Potter Party

Harry Potter is a great, universal theme for parties with easy DIYs such as Hogwarts letters, an entrance to Diagon Alley or turning a witches hat from the dollar store into a Sorting Hat. Guests can celebrate their house pride with these adorable felt ties from online maker Lisa Abboud-Zitner.
