This adorable monkey themed birthday party was submitted by Karen of Karen’s Cookie Jar.
A monkey party theme truly reflected her little boy in every respect and was ideal for his first birthday. What a fun party theme that any child would just adore.
This theme would also be super cute for a baby shower!
Karen said about planning the party “Nate is such a cheeky monkey, how could I do anything else! He had also been given a number of monkey toys over the past year, which he absolutely loved, so it seemed like the ideal party choice. I spent some time looking around for decorations to fit the theme and purchased most items from Spotlight. I decided to keep the food for the party pretty low key, but made the cake and the cookies to match the invitations”.
So how was this adorable monkey themed birthday party put together?
Firstly, it is important to choose a theme that reflects who the party is for. Once the theme from step 3 of the party planning checklist, has been chosen, everything else will fall into place.
The monkey theme was perfect for this cheeky little monkey.
Party Invitations: Step 4 of the Party Planning Checklist:
Once your party theme has been chosen, you can select your invitations.
The invitations really set the scene. These invitations were personalized with a photo of the gorgeous birthday boy.
Party Decorations: Step 5 of the Party Planning Checklist:
The decorations worked perfectly together.
Several monkeys were hidden throughout the backyard, which provided a great counting game for the kids!
Some simple streamers gave a forest feel.
Party Food and Drink: Step 7 of the Party Planning Checklist:
Karen made the cookies and the cake, and complemented the design beautifully.
She also kept in with the colour scheme of blue, green and brown.

It is traditional at kids parties to hand out party favours at the end of the party to thank the guests for attending.
This can include anything that you want it to, but traditionally it will have a few sweets and small toys.
The party favours were again tied in beautifully with the monkey theme.
