Sock Monkey Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

I love this sock monkey puppet birthday submission that we received from Heather Dalton at Chickabug.  Heather’s team created all of the adorable printables for a dessert table for a little boy’s first birthday party. The table was styled by the little boy’s mother, Courtney.  The kids munched on snacks like “Monkey Bread” and Peanut Butter and Banana sandwiches. I love the color palette of red, chocolate brown and cream.  For a while, it seemed chocolate brown as an accent color was getting too dated, but I think it is going to make a comeback soon.  It also always helps with dessert tables when you can work with the color brown since it makes it easy to bring chocolate onto the table!  The balloon wreath is so creative and easy to make.

Monkey-themed parties have been around forever.  One of the first parties for my younger son was a banana flavored monkey-themed party.  It seems like eons ago, but to this day, all of our friends talk about how cute it was.  It had a similar color palette as above, but the red was swapped out with yellow.  Either one is chic.  We served banana flavored hot chocolate {it was the coldest day during the winter, after all!}, a monkey cake and cookies, and lots of banana flavored sweets.  It seems like the monkey theme isn’t going away.  PS – For all of you monkey lovers looking for a fun summer treat, check out our banana popsicle idea here on Stroller Traffic.

Great job, ladies!
