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!

CAMILLE’S FIESTA ~ MEXICAN THEME BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!
