{Fabulous Fete} Sew Cute Sock Monkey Birthday

We are all going bananas around here for this adorable and oh so creative party Renee of  the Creative Orchard  styled to celebrate her son’s second birthday. What is  not to love about all the  colorful crafting inspired details and  fun activities  this party offers. From the yarn pom poms to the sock monkey puppet show this party is packed with tons of cute ideas for your next event. Are you feeling a little curious about it? Keep reading to see lots more pics and some bright and cheery inspiration. Here are the details  as told by Renee:

“Since sock monkeys originate from craft materials, I used yarns, buttons, scissors, rulers, spools, ribbons, etc. as decorative accents throughout the party. Leaf shaped fabric placemats ran in a line down each side of the table. Multi-striped fabric shower curtains were used for tablecloths. Chair cushions were on the ground for comfort. Monkey cups were made from construction paper by using circular paper punches, a hole puncher and scissors, then glued around clear plastic cups. Large colorful straws were placed in each cup along with a single “Barrel of Monkeys” toy hung on the edge. These were easy to make and looked ADORABLE!



Draped across the front of the dessert table were yarn wrapped cardboard letters that spelled “SEW CUTE” and hung from ribbon. Dessert ideas were easy for this theme… just GO BANANAS!Moonkey pie pops (Moon Pies), monkey vines (licorice), banana cakes, banana cream pie, banana chips, banana marshmallows and banana cupcakes of course! The banana cupcakes (recipe inside “Hello, Cupcake!” book) had whipped vanilla frosting and vanilla wafer cookies dipped in chocolate to make monkey faces. The banana split bar was a guest FAVORITE with homemade vanilla ice cream, fresh bananas and lots of toppings.

Activity ideas include a MONKEY mask craft project, BUNCHES of fun bag toss, create your own SOCK MONKEY, BANANA box car race, SOCK wearing contest and a SOCK MONKEY puppet show!”
