Monkey First Birthday Party

monkey-first-birthday-ideasThis Monkey First Birthday Party is too adorable for words! Mom knew she wanted to do a monkey party, but not a Sock Monkey theme, so she went on Etsy to search for party favors and came across a Silly Monkey 1st Birthday Theme from A Sweet Celebration. Tristan’s nursery is blue and green, so the blue and green polka dots on the party decor matched perfectly!
