I am honored to share these photos of a very special party! Ultra-talented photographer and super-crafty mama Susan Gentile outdid herself once again – this time, with this vintage sock monkey theme party for her youngest son, Alexander.

My favorite details? “Moon-key” pies, the absolute mountain of cupcake wrappers and toppers, and of course, Alexander’s ultra-precious sock monkey hat!

Susan set up a child-sized puppet theatre, and a craft station where kids could create their own sock monkey puppet.

Alexander’s special birthday hat was handmade by Karly’s Kloset.

All of the food was monkey-themed, with printable buffet cards from Chickabug.

I individually personalized all of Alexander’s buffet cards to give the candy buffet that extra-special touch.

Sock monkey water bottle labels look totally charming in a red bucket of ice.

Susan outdid herself with all of the cupcakes!

Alexander’s party hat was made using sock monkey fabric from the 5 Funky Monkeys collection by Moda Fabrics.

Such an adorable little monkey, indeed! Thank you so much, Susan! Happy birthday Alexander!
