After all the delicious desserts listed in Part I of my Safari / Jungle Themed First Birthday Party post, it’s time for some appetizers, finger foods and snacks ideas now! As I mentioned in my previous post I wanted to share all food ideas and party decorations in a single post but it got ridiculously long so I split it into four parts:
- Part I – Dessert Ideas
- Part II – Appetizers, Finger Foods & Snack Ideas
- Part III – DIY Decoration Ideas + FREE Printables
- Part IV – Cheap Party Supplies & Decorations
So if you haven’t read Part I of my post go check it out, or you’re missing out on some great dessert ideas for your jungle-themed party!
Going back to this post’s topic now… we served HUNGRY TIGER BITES which were actually my 4-Ingredient Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups! Ready in just 10 minutes!
I saw a LION FACE MADE OUT OF VEGGIES on Pinterest, showed my husband the photo and asked for his help and this is how it turned out (after taking a few bites of cauliflower) :).
I also made SUSHI FOR BEARS at home, about 120 of them… saving probably more than a hundred dollars in costs! I used the Perfect Sushi Rice recipe submitted by Lucy Del Rey on allrecipes.com and added strips of carrots, cucumber, avocado and smoked salmon. The only thing you need – other than rice, veggies, seaweed – is a bamboo sushi rolling mat which is just a few dollars!
The hippos were getting a little hungry so I made a HUNGRY HIPPO DIP. That would be my 5-Ingredient Spinach Sweet Potato Dip that we enjoy as a dip and Daniel as a full meal! We served it with baked pita chips but tortilla chips or crackers are another option.
And lastly, we had some store-bought snacks:
PEANUTS FOR ELEPHANTS
CHEETOS FOR CHEETAHS
