Out of Africa – Themed Dinner Party Ideas

Out of Africa

So I am thinking that the next best thing to being on a safari would be to create a safari theme for your next fondue dinner party.  Ask your family and friends to dress in their favorite safari gear (safari suit, leopard print clothes, khaki shirts and shorts, a loin cloth if game) to get that fun party vibe happening.

Transform your indoors and outdoors into the African Serengeti by using African paraphernalia to create a safari ambience your guests will enjoy!

I have put together below a few ideas which are simple and fuss free to start you on your dinner party journey!
