I used the monkey stamp on the invitations and also decorated a fleece stuffed monkey to match (added a shirt and striped hat made of fleece) for the photo. I made the photo removable (with a magnet attached, just in case) and decorated it with party sock monkey brads and bakers twine. I die cut the balloons and used pop dots and a pom pom on the hat to add dimension.
Clayton was premature but he is doing great! He is small but very active and into everything!
Below, you can see the centerpiece better. Allison and I wanted to use orange table covers (instead of brown) but we were overruled so we did add circles of color to try to brighten up the brown. We did order some wrapping paper that matched the plates to use as table runners, but it was a very breezy day and they would not have stayed down.
It dawned on me that if I removed the blue and yellow m & m's, we would have the color of the party. That is much less expensive than buying specific colors.....and I like blue and yellow m & m's !
It was a fun party and hopefully, you have enjoyed seeing the photos. Happy Birthday to my little monkey!
