    I am also doing a jungle theme and I found this awesome idea for making plam trees in a Mailbox magazine and I cannot wait to try it. You need large flower pots, 6 foot of PVC pipe (2 inches wide), plaster of paris, an umbrella, and green and brown paper. Mix plasterof paris according to directions and put into pot until it's almost full. After plaster has set for a few minutes, insert pipe in center of pot. Allow plaster to completely harden. Wrap the pipe in brown paper to resemble a tree trunk. Open the umbrella and put in the top of PVC pipe. Decorate with leaves made from green paper. I cannot wait to try this for my reading area!!! I also found these inflatable tiger chairs in an old Oriental Trading catalog but they don't make them any more!!! But I am going to get some brightly colored inflatable chairs to go along with the trees. Someone on another board suggested hanging green netting or long strips of green bulletin board paper from the ceiling. Also, hanging inflatable jungle animals (from Oriental Trading) from the ceiling. Good luck!!!
