Party Recap

My son's dream is to one day hunt in Africa! So for his birthday, we had an African Safari---Old World Style. We had a great time creating a dessert table, favor table, vintage safari desk, African animal games and watering hole. It was a splendid time in the depths of the Serengeti.

    Thanks so very much Melissa. The punch was, if I remember correctly, blue lemonade Kool-Aid. It was a great color for the water hole. :)
