Bring Out Your Party's Wild Side

I think I was inspired by my Halloween costume (I was a cat of some sort). For the purrrfect affair, liven up a small gathering (i.e. dinner party) with these party suggestions.
You can find animal print fabric from just about any fabric and craft store. I would go with a print that has brown or black shades in it. Tone down wild table settings with this brown suede table runner (pictured below, far left) from Plum Party.

Place these customizable candle holders and votives (pictured below, left) from Shindigz on your table(s). Use small bamboo plants to complement the tablescape. You can also dress up chairs with Gossamer paper (pictured below, right), also from from Shindigz. Gossamer has many uses, consider it for table draping or as a "ferocious" garland. They also have leopard and zebra print. I would suggest mixing it up by alternating chair ties.

You can find these animal print lanterns (pictured below, far right) at World Market. They are perfect for adding some animal flare and subdued lighting to your event. you can also find affordable paper lanterns at the Paper Lantern Store. Bundling and mixing the patterns with solid colors will tame a motif that lets the imagination go wild!
