Sock Monkey First Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

If you haven’t considered a Sock Monkey theme for your son’s first birthday – you need to add it to the list of possibilities! Jennifer at Hello Love Designs, LLC designed a truly adorable Sock Monkey themed party for her nephew’s first birthday. This theme started in Kason’s nursery, which is decked out in Sock Monkey style. The party started right from the front steps, with a delightful display complete with Sock Monkey wreath.

In fact, the color palate of the party all comes from the Sock Monkey, and sticks within the brown, red and cream colors. She kept is simple and clean with polka dots, stripes and solids in the coordinating colors. Jennifer made charming hot air balloons for Monkey as part of the décor. A very clever idea was to set up a Treat Shoppe, where people could get scoops of their favorite candies to enjoy during the party – and of course all the candy matched the color theme too. Jennifer designed several printables that she set out to label all the treats. 

A super cute addition to the treat table were the cookies, which were not just a dozen of the same cookie but all different cookies with a variety of Sock Monkey and Kason touches. And the smash cake was just as gorgeous as the main cake. With polka dots and Sock Monkeys to pull the decorations into the cake, they both served as great centerpieces for the event. The guest also snacked on banana pudding parfaits – because what monkey doesn’t love a banana!
