Birthday Boy Everett has been lovingly called “Monkey” since he was born, and mom Julia knew that a Monkey Party would be the perfect way to celebrate Everett’s First Birthday! Julia planned every wonderful detail… down to the monkeys on her own Lilly Pulitzer dress! Perfectly coordinated, playful, and fun, this party swings with adorable touches…but who knew little monkeys were afraid of cake? Read on to see all the fun (and even a few tears!)…
Look how cute the personalized plates for each guest are!
Julia celebrated the stages of Everett’s first year by placing photos of her little monkey on the tables…
The cakes were made to perfectly match the monkeys, polka dots, and bananas that were used throughout the party…
The always-exciting moment of a child enjoying his smash cake took an unexpected turn when Everett became a little overwhelmed by all of the excitement (along with a 4:30 a.m. wake-up call and no nap)…
The Birthday Boy back in full swing and ready to play!
Julia put together cute favor bags full of monkey goodies for the guests to take home~
What a great party, Julia! Thank you for sharing!
