Sock Monkey Birthday Party

Baby B turned 1 on the 19th! It waa such a fun day! I'm finally getting to posting his birthday party... It was so much fun! I did it sock monkey themed.

I made cupcakes with red and yellow pinwheels. I did everything brown, tan, red and yellow.

His monkey cake. :) Fun but more time consuming than I thought it would be. It was still fun!

We ended up doing an ice cream bar instead of food. We invited all of our extended family so we figured it was easier.

I made a burlap banner with "Happy Birthday" on it. I also did the banner underneath with a picture each month in the first year of his life. It was fun to look back at each month.

Had to have paper straws! :)

I made a little sock monkey shirt to go along with the theme. Can't see it too well I guess. I just cut it out on the silhouette and sewed it right on! :)

Not loving his birthday hat...

It was such a fun day! I can't believe he is already a year old!
