As party shop owners, party stylists and moms to five children between the two of us, we’re always looking for new and fresh activities to keep the kids entertained and having fun during a celebration. Enter Dylbug, a company that specializes in dress-up plates that are designed to make mealtime interactive and entertaining. Their animal plates provided the inspiration for this sweet “Party Animal” theme that your little animals will go wild about!
We pulled the party’s color scheme from the bright colors found in the plates and added fun polka dot napkins and cups with striped straws, confetti, balloons and party hats to the table. The only thing missing are the guests!
The dog, bear, cat, lion, panda and tiger plates have the sweetest designs and are just begging to be styled! We placed containers down the center of the table filled with all sorts of snacks, such as apple slices, popcorn, M&Ms, goldfish crackers, mini Oreo cookies, mini marshmallows, strawberries and orange slices—all perfect for dressing up the animals.
Let your little party guests go wild with creativity, adding a strawberry tutu, M&M earrings, Oreo pants or a marshmallow sweater. The possibilities are endless and this activity will keep everyone entertained for a while!
We love using these plates for a small party because they serve three purposes—they’re plates, entertainment and take-home favors all in one. You can even have them personalized with your guests names.
Just add a few more animal-related games and activities (like animal masks, balloon animals or a petting zoo!), and you’ve just hosted an amazing party for your birthday child!
