Ready, aim, zoom! Birthday parties are different this year. They are smaller, outdoors or online. We originally didn’t think we’d have a party this year. At the last minute, we decided to host an intimate Tiger King birthday party. Since many of our friends couldn’t make it in person, we also organized a Tiger King Zoom edition. We are excited to share our virtual birthday party with you.
Virtual Birthday Party Tablescape
Hey all you cool cats and kittens, just because this is a virtual birthday party, doesn’t mean that it can’t have a fabulous setup. We created our Tiger King inspired tablescape with hunter green leaf petal taffeta tablecloths, leopard satin table runners and leopard satin napkins from CV Linens. CV Linens has a variety of gorgeous linens and you can use the code TWINS10 for a 10% discount off your purchase (excluding polyester chair covers).
We created a balloon garland with colorful solid and animal print balloons. We initially made this for our in person party. Some balloons popped and others deflated, but we twisted the balloon tape around and were able repurpose the balloons into a smaller garland. With our Cricut Maker and Cricut Joy, we made Twin Exotic water bottle labels and wine decals and popcorn boxes. We also created a cheese board to pair with our wine and baked cupcakes.
Virtual Birthday Party Wine
We toasted with Piper Heidsieck Rosé Champagne. This bold, full bodied sparkling wine gets its deep ruby color from Pinot Noir. It’s also made from Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay and has notes of black cherry, blackberry and blood orange. We also sipped on Robert Sinskey’s Abraxus. This white wine is one of our summer favorites. It’s a blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Gewürztraminer with notes of citrus, pear and green apple.
These stuffed animals first made an appearance at Dylan’s Safari 1st birthday party almost 8 years ago.
We chatted with our friends over Zoom. Friends dialed in over the course of two hours. It was a great way to stay connected and catch up.
It’s a zoo here. Special thanks to all of our friends for joining Twin Exotic in person or the Zoom edition. Remember to stay safe and celebrate in style.
I can assure you’re going to get closer to tigers and lions here than you would anywhere in the worldJoe Exotic
