Amidst the jungle air, the palm trees and the wild animals, even the coldest heart can find jungle love at an African Safari Sweetheart Dance. Create the perfect atmosphere for a dance that attendees will remember for years to come.
Bring on the Trees, Please!
The key to any successful African Safari Sweetheart Dance is the trees. They do, after all, make up the most important part of the jungle backdrop. Make sure your venue is decked out with palm trees of all shapes and sizes. If the room is tall enough, consider some Tropical Palms that tower six to nine feet into the air. While three-dimensional trees are best, if the budget is super tight, paint palm trees on murals using banner paint.
Party Animals Galore
A jungle safari isn’t complete without animals. Venture deep into the jungle with photo image cutouts of a lion, a tiger and a gorilla. But don’t stop there, every jungle needs some monkeys. A Monkey Arch and Tree is a good fit for the entrance to your event. For fun at every table, consider putting children’s toys like stuffed animals as centerpieces or in chairs.
Light up the Night
If jungle love is what you truly desire at your African Safari Sweetheart Dance, the lighting is very important. What could be more romantic than a sparkling waterfall? Stunning blue water gossamer and twinkle lights are draped down from more than nine feet in the air to make this jungle waterfall, which also works well as a photo backdrop. Since the atmosphere is romantic and lighting will be low, use tube lights to light the walkways from the entrance to the tables, and from the tables to the dance floor. They also work great around three-dimensional palm trees.
Music Makes the Memories
There’s no shortage of songs about the jungle or Africa. Some of our favorites are Steve Miller Band’s “Jungle Love” and Toto’s “Africa.” Play some of Kool and the Gang’s “Jungle Boogie” for a fun tune that will get everyone on the dance floor. Music is key to making any dance a success, and having a handful of songs to go with the dance theme help make it that much more memorable.
Go All Out with a Jungle Kit
The name speaks for itself: the Jungle Allure Kit. There’s no easier way to prepare for an evening of romance in the jungle. Animal standees, grass, palm trees, and more create this must-have set for the dance sponsor who wants to go all out.
An African Safari Sweetheart Dance is a fun and romantic way to set the scene for an unforgettable night. With the right decorations and music, it can be the most popular dance of the year. What will you do to make sure your attendees find jungle love at the dance?
