Sock Monkey Birthday Party Ideas

Jennifer from Shutterbug and the Sweet Life sent over these ADORABLE pics of the fabulous dessert buffet that she created (and photographed!)  for her son’s Sock Monkey themed birthday party!

Creative details included a super-cute custom bunting, sock monkey cupcake toppers with an argyle pattern accent, “Monkey Munchies” adorned with baker’s twine (love the addition of the red m&ms here!), and old fashioned Coca-Cola bottles that added another splash of nostalgia – in the perfect colors!

    I love the entire theme. We are doing a monkey theme baby shower and this would be great since mama doesn’t want to know the gender. I love those cupcake toppers. LOVE them.

    Holy Moly! Why was I not invited?!? I know we don’t know each other from Adam but still. Too bad all my boy’s birthdays were the 22 and 23 of Aug. I LOVE this.
