Here’s an adorable sock monkey party that was held outdoors at a park. Crafty mama Leslie made most of the decorations for her son Bo’s party on her own, using sock monkey fabric, ribbons, various papers, and (lucky her!) a Cricut machine!
That’s a happy birthday boy! : ) A family member made Bo’s adorable custom embroidered tee, and Leslie made the “I am 1” sign from paper, sock monkey fabric, brads and ribbon.
Cupcakes with red, brown and white frosting and paired with yellow cupcake liners and DIY cupcake toppers for a perfect match!
Leslie displayed Bo’s month-by-month photos in white frames. Red buckets from Hobby Lobby hold lollipops that are embellished with custom stickers.
Bo’s banner was homemade using paper and ribbon.
The cute little monkey decorations were made using a Cricut – and, Leslie says, “the help of a few amazing friends!”
Extra stickers are good to have on-hand – you can always find a place to put them!
Everyone loved Bo’s custom water labels!
Each guest took home a miniature coloring book personalized with Bo’s name (purchased on Ebay).
And, Leslie also made sock monkey cookie mix favors using red and brown M&M’s. The “sock monkey cookies” label is homemade, and the red scallop was cut out using the Cricut.
“Aaah! Cake!” – I love this face! ; )
Thank you so much for sharing, Leslie! Happy birthday to Bo!
