PARTY DETAILS, as told by Louise
:

We held Big Wills 1st Birthday Party at my home in Durban, South Africa. It was a small gathering of close friends and Family. I just love the Sock Monkey Theme – I hope you do too!

DECOR

To make a party look great you need to focus on the details. We created this look by using our designs from our latest Sunshine Party printable set – Sock Monkey Inspired. All digital design elements can be printed on a home PC printer and handmade. This makes the party unique and still affordable! All the printed items can be found at SunshineParties on Etsy this includes the Happy Birthday banner, Mini Cake Bunting, Food labels, Cupcake toppers all laid out to create this stunning look.

For the table, we used a blue table cloth with hessian overlays. We made the bunting ourselves.

FOOD

The birthday Cake was a yummy red velvet layered cake with precious mini bunting on top. We had the cutest sock monkey cake pops. Liquorices hung from a container as Monkey vines. Lint Chocolate personalized with labels to be monkey bars and some very yummy peanut butter cupcakes. Don’t forget the monkey nuts, we used chocolate balls for this!
