The Partiologist: Jungle Party!

Jungle Party!

Good morning all my party people!  I decided to continue with one of the luncheons I had a few years ago, it's a little more on the simple side.  It all started with the invitation...

Jungle Invitation
 
The little monkey swings from tree to tree, so I decided to go with a jungle theme.  When most people would see this invitation, they would think it would be a perfect invite for a two year old's party....NOT me!  I found some outdoor hibiscus and leaf dishes at Frontgate and then added to the collection with some dishes I found at Target.
  I used rafia chargers under each plate and fish netting down the center of the table.
I used my three square vases from Pottery Barn to serve celery, carrots and dip.  The leaf was for the salad and the hibiscus was for the veggies.  I tried not to get upset if they used the wrong plate for the wrong food item!  :)

A long plastic leaf tray was used to hold palm tree topped fruit kebobs.
I served iced Aveda Tea - have you ever tried it iced?  It's great!

I don't know how it happened, but that year I found some parasol picks at Pier I and they matched my decor perfectly!
I filled some coconut bowls with crackers and mixed nuts.  And off to the right is a ...(What??? a spoon out of place????) oh, I mean a hibiscus cookie to match the plate.  

Besides the cookies, each guest was given a box of Tea Forte, which had a little leaf coming out of the top.  Here's a close up of the cute little tea boxes~
And a close up of the parasols with the plates~
More to come...

Can you feel the Island Breeze?
