ARI'S ANIMAL THEMED PARTY: PART 1

Today's #TBT party series features Ari's 2nd birthday. At two, Ari was obsessed with going to the zoo, so I went with a "Party Animal" theme and made it modern with solid, bright colors. Everything I did was DIY- you can totally pull this off if you have the time and plan ahead!
My talented twin sister, Ellie, of Aunt Ellie's Sweet Treats, made her famous gourmet rice krispie treats Campfire Crispies and cut them out in animal shapes. These. Are. Amazing. If you've never tried, you're missin' out on life, my friend. Order HERE. You deserve it.

Remember those yummy frosted animal cookies you ate as a kid? I made them out of sugar cookies, tinted frosting, and sprinkles. 
Not gonna lie... these bad boys took me a loooong time. But worth it right? Tutorial HERE.
'cause it's a camel.. get it?
Nana Lou's famous punch (for adults!). This zookeeper needed three one after all this DIY-ing!
Yep, that's me enjoying zookeeper punch. 
I made teeny little party hats for these fellas.
