Curious Drake Guest Dessert Feature

We received these pictures from Nicole at Million Dollar Smile Celebrations. Nicole is a home baker who, along with her twin sister, likes to plan parties as a hobby. They threw this party for sister’s son, Drake, who is a Curious George enthusiast. They invited all of Drake’s primate pals for some good and messy fun. Invitations encouraged a donation of a book for Joplin, MO libraries destroyed by tornadoes. Along with those cute cake pops and an ice cream sundae station, banana moonpies and zingers were included in the sweet treats.  We are big advocates of the mantra if you can’t bake it, buy it.  Store bought treats can look amazing on a table if styled correctly. The little monkey’s were kept entertained with paint stations, the “monkey see monkey doodle” station ( so cute), a bouncy ball house, and bubble-catching nets. Curious George book titles, themes, and pages were incorporated everywhere from pinwheel treat toppers, banners, and gingham paper goods. This party made us go bananas!

    What a cute party! And I love the idea of asking guests to bring a book to donate. Please be advised that Joplin is in Missouri (abbreviated MO) and not Michigan (which is abbreviated MI). Great work!

    Such a fun, colorful party for all those little monkeys’

    Thanks for the feature! Tonia and I had some fun late nights crafting. Amanda, thanks for catching my geography mistake. I always get those two mixed up.
