Oh the exciting news!! It’s been over two years ago and I still remember how happy I was to find out my sister was having a baby! Being the oldest of five siblings, I felt thrilled to meet my first niece or nephew. In the months that followed, my family and I kept busy planning baby shower details. I hope you enjoy my monkey themed baby shower!
Monkey Themed Baby Shower Decorations:
Ohh now I get to talk about the fun part! For any style of party, I love to get crafty by creating party decorations myself. I created a handmade scrappy banner, using items that I had already around the house, which saved on party costs! Also, I loved handpicking bright blue and brown party elements to perfectly accent my party. You can’t go wrong with bright blue!
I created an adorable DIY guestbook by buying a plain colored notebook and scrap booking the front. If you love DIY, be sure to take a look at my Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Ideas with oodles of unique, handmade party elements.
Food & Drinks:
A delicious assortment of foods included cake, cake pops, sandwiches, bright blue jello cubes, chips & dip, broccoli salad, scones, a vegetable tray, Hawaiian punch and hot Chai Latte. My favorite party food would have to be the cutest monkey cake. I love how it turned out and it matched the party perfectly!
A baby shower wouldn’t be complete without games to provide entertainment!
- For a simplistic and fun idea, we asked the guests to predict how many M&M’s filled the jar. The winner took the jar home!
- To add a personal touch, we played a “Guess Who?”, a baby name game in which the guests guessed who was who from a choice of six baby photos. The baby photos were of the mommy-to-be (my sister) and all five of us siblings. Even my family members had a difficult time telling us all apart; we looked so much alike!
Overall, I had such a blast planning a monkey themed baby shower for my sister! I had some fun crafting unique decorations and I also got do something special for my sister. I love to design the perfect party for the guest of honor to enjoy! If you are looking for gift ideas be sure to check out my blue themed baby shower gift basket for more inspiration.
