There are plenty of fabulous ideas here for all those monkey theme fans out there! From the invitations to the fun activities this party is a definite winner. Shayna really went all out with the party decor and details, so be sure to look through all the pics because I promise you will be inspired!

Enjoy Shayna’s Monkey party…..
Well a year has come and gone faster than I ever imagined. I really wish I could freeze time but I will try to soak up every kiss, every hug, every milestone, every moment with our little monkey. Saturday was her birthday and birthday party and here is a picture heavy, very long post of the recap for those who couldn’t be there to see. Her aunt Kelly drove up from Corpus so that was such a nice treat. We will get to see her Mimi and Aunt Bree and cousin Jacoby thisweekend so that will add to the wonderful birhtday week.
This was her invitation which was glued to the back of a monkey face that we made.
We of course did a monkey theme with colors in pink, yellow, and brown. We did a mural on the wall of a little jungle scene and I hung her picture timeline on this.
2 posts were decorated to look like banana tress with monkeys and bananas hanging from them.
This was the table as guests arrived where they could sign a mat for her, write her a note for her time capsule, and turn into a monkey with a monkey mask.
These were the prizes for the games we played.
We made chocolate covered rice krispy treats in the shape of monkeys for the monkey walk and then various toys and goodies for feed the monkey.
I did a Monkey’s corner that was all about Casey Marilyn. Pictures, decorations from her room, her clothing over the year, baby book, etc.
Once again I want a professional because a lot of my pics turned out blurry.
Did I mention that my family is full of monkeys?
Singing happy birthday
I love this, she did not like fondant, but really who does?
She was done
She was so good, she would help me open the gift, look at it and then pass it on to Grams, some things she was more eager to pass on than others LOL
She got so many cute outfits.
