This year, for my son's first birthday we threw him a sock monkey party. For Halloween last year, he was a sock monkey {super adorable!} and the image of him has stuck with me since. Every time I see a sock monkey, I melt and think of my sweet little boy.

When it came to planning the party, I had a really hard time finding anything sock monkey party related! So, I rolled up my sleeves and designed the entire party from start to finish myself from favor bags to his smash cake topper.

The invitations





The favor bags are tiny and perfect; just enough to hold a few small treats and not worry other mommies with, "What in the world will I do with this?" I designed a special and unique favor bag for each tiny guest. No one had the same one. They each had a hand designed tag with their name on it and were filled with a few Hershey kisses, a swirly straw {huge hit and 99 cents for a box of assorted colors at Walmart in the party isle}, a mini kazoo {my son's absolute favorite instrument}, and a handmade sock monkey fridge magnet on top of homemade crinkle paper. Thank you tags were tucked inside for each guest.

Favor Bags
OMG has designed so many varieties and face of sock monkey. We can substitute any of our designs for the embellishments of favor bags, hats, and more! Just ask!

We served our guests cupcakes and adorned them with sock monkey cupcake pics that I made to match the favor bags.

He had a sock monkey banner mommy made with love. The boy even had his own smash cake with a handmade sock monkey cake topper holding a 1.
After all was said and done, these handmade thank you notes were mailed to the guests thanking them for their presence and presents. Most of everything you see here is available here. If it's not there and you want it, just ask. I can duplicate anything in this post custom for your party.

  1. Hi,
    These are fantastic. Can you tell me where you found the banana paper for the bags? I've been looking everywhere for paper like this. You are very talented, and it looks like you have a blast!

    I look forward to hearing from you!
