Pink Safari Themed Party

Lions, zebras, giraffes ... oh my! If you want to get wild and have a roaring good time, throw a pink safari themed party like this one featured on Hostess with the Mostess. The binocular craft station and animal masks will have everyone wanting to stay and continue on the safari.
