The mom-to-be was decorating the nursery with sock monkey's so they were the star of this baby shower. I used a brown and red color palette with touches of baby blue. I incorporated polka dots and stripes to keep it playful. I wanted everything to have a vintage feel so I incorporated vintage toys to complete the look.
I served sock monkey cookies (from TS Cookies) and cake pops. I ordered a dozen sock monkey cake pops from Mom's Killer Cakes and they were adorable & yummy!
Activities / Games
Guest were asked to leave well wishes or advice for the mom-to-be and then we played a simple "remember what you see" baby shower game
This party was created with a small budget and everything, including food was done for under $100
Each guest left with Monkey Munchies - cookies in a jar
The look on the guest of honor's face when she arrived. She was speechless and felt so loved and honored to be showered with lots of love.
What People Ate
I served a yummy pasta salad, individual crudite glasses, stuffed potatoes, fruit kababos and lots of sweet treats
What People Drank
Lemonade and Cherry Limeaid was served in vintage glass milk bottles (ok they were Starbucks bottles, which I love to use at parties!)
