A Curious George monkey-themed birthday party is far from bananas. Andrea, from Where the Green Grass Grows, pulled off this four-year-old’s party perfectly. Everyone knows four-year-old’s like to monkey around so you can imagine the fun and wild time they had with this party idea. Banana splits instead of a cake, banana cupcakes, banana candies, and banana bread for take-home favors…hey, this was monkey paradise! (Wouldn’t this banana split cake be awesome on the menu as well)?
- Bet your little monkey will love this easy monkey bread recipe
- Plan an amazing party with these party games
Birthday parties and sunshine are natural pairings, so the dessert table in the great outdoors worked well for the small, energetic party guests. Monkeys were incorporated throughout the decoration designs, including in the bright flag banner which welcomed guests and spelled out the birthday girl or boy’s name.
Adorable blue and white argyle, and custom birthday party hats helped get the guests into a celebratory mood. Solid blue colored cups and bright yellow striped straws made the perfect party cup when adorned with a custom sticker label. Red ribbons added a dash of color to the yellow and blue scheme. A treasury book of everyone’s favorite little monkey, Curious George, was included as part of the decorations.
Remember the classic Barrel of Monkeys game? It made a cute decoration, too. A wooden crate, just like those used for shipping fresh fruit, was an ingenious way to display party goods. In addition to the ice cream banana splits, real bananas and mini banana candies were up for grabs, just what the monkey ordered!
Banana cupcakes, which were marked with a customized monkey-themed topper, could be eaten at the party; a cheery, bright yellow bag, with a label closure, made sure the fresh-baked banana bread went home safely. The birthday boy is the son of Anne Nunn, of Anne Nunn Photography and it looks like Andrea and Anne work well together!
