If you haven’t been to the exciting new Gator Run lazy river at Audubon Zoo, put this magazine in your bag and go there now!
We decided to host a few friends for the afternoon and rented one of the cabanas, which are only $75 for the day. I placed a centerpiece at the front that I put in one of the floats that you use for the river ride, so everyone would know where to go.
I brought my own fold-up six-foot-long table and decorated it with a blue-and-white striped cloth. On the cloth I placed single Celebration vases (available at BeverlyChurch.com) filled with lilies, roses, gerbera daisies and blue delphinium.
I brought my own serving pieces for the food, but the Zoo can do everything; we had fried chicken, a salad and ice cream treats for dessert. For the adults they offer hurricanes and daiquiris, but you can order wine if you’d prefer.
I bought cute striped towels from the shop at the Cool Zoo to give to each guest as a favor.
Be sure to tell everyone to dress casually and bring a bathing suit, because you’ll definitely want to go for a ride – or two.
