The very lovely Emily of The Anderson Crew blog put together the sweetest lil' birthday…
My sweet customer Ashley threw an adorable sock monkey first birthday party for her son, Cruz! The party started with a ride in on a Radio Flyer wagon, and highlights included a monkey-themed dessert bar and a sweet puppet theater.
Cruz’s precious embroidered sock monkey shirt came from Etsy.
Ashley made Cruz’s fabric banner herself! The fabric, ribbon, and tacky glue used to make the banner were all from JoAnn’s Fabric.
A printable cupcake wrapper and topper set and a tiered display were all it took to make cupcakes a big focal point at the party!
At the dessert bar, Ashley served Sixlets, Monkey Lips (gummies), Monkey Vines (Twizzlers) and chocolate raisins.
The printable buffet cards are especially sweet along with the polka dotted ribbons!
Other treats served at the dessert bar: Zoo Friends (animal crackers), cherry slices, Tootsie Pops, and Monkey Poop (chocolates)!
The party hats and blowers came from Birthday Express, and sock monkey toys were given as party favors. Each one was presented in a small paper bag that was decorated with a personalized sock monkey sticker. (“Thanks a bunch! Love, Cruz.”)
Thank you so much for sharing, Ashley! Happy birthday to Cruz! : )
