If you are sending an e-greeting as everyone does nowadays, then you can add some animal animation or animal voices to it. For example, you can create a lion leaping in animation with a roar announcing a child birthday and requesting the presence of the guest. The impact would be much higher!
However, if you are interested in giving a paper or hard copy invitation to someone, then you add jungle and animal image background to the invitation. The card background can be covered in grass trees and animal images, and you can make the fonts using butterflies.

Decorating with a Jungle or Safari Theme
Next is to decide the venue for the party. This is very crucial as the venue need to meet your requirements for having a jungle theme party.

Either you can make it bright, sunny and lush green or you can also add a little creepy and scary tight to it by decorating the jungle in night mode where everything is a little dark.
Once the venue is decided you will have to complete the decorations to make the site look more like a jungle with the decoration of plants, trees, etc. You could also play animals and birds voices in the background to make it look more appealing. Add some paper birds attached with the series on the roof and decorate the ceiling of the venue like a sky. One can also add some ambient lights to the site to show the forest at night time with night creatures' voices to make it a little more intense.
Once you are done with the venue, decorations, and invitations, order a beautiful birthday cake matching your theme. Make some trees and animals on the cake. Add some texture to the cake such as zebra stripes or make the cake in the shape of an animal. Add beautiful palm trees butterflies, and flowers made from fondant. You can also change the colour of the cream inside the cake to green or muddy.
Now arrange the porcelain that matches your Jungle theme. If you do not have printed animal plates, then you can use some green coloured plates that will go well with the idea. You can also add napkins to the dishes that have an animal printed on it.

Another activity that you can add to the party is that people or kids can come to the party dressed as an animal. Once they reach the venue, they will have to behave in the same way the animal which they are representing through their costumes.
You can keep fresh fruits as servings or tie them up with the artificial tree and ask people to grab the fruits without using the hands and only using their mouth.
