Monkey Themed First Birthday

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

 What 1-year old doesn't like to monkey around? That's why an adorable monkey theme is the perfect pick for this milestone birthday party!

Lexi's mom used glitter, flowers and lots of bright colors to help create a fun atmosphere. DIY alert - she even made many of the decorations herself! Check out the awesome set-up below, sent over from Infiniti Foto.

Lexi's party was hosted outside on a beautifully sunny day. Her mom used a color scheme of bright pinks, blues and yellows to decorate the backyard. One of the most unique pieces of decor was the timeline garland - it displayed memories from the birthday girl's first year through pictures! Another awesome touch? Lexi's family decided to incorporate a tradition known in the Korean culture as Doljabi. In this fun activity, guests cast a vote on which future career path they think the guest of honor will choose. Items to represent each career are then placed on a mat, and whichever item the baby chooses is said to be an indication of what they will become! In this case, Lexi chose her musical toy. (We're thinking a future GigMasters musician!)



We're sure guests went bananas for this fun theme. If you're thinking of throwing a monkey-themed bash, add some entertainment! A face painter can turn the guests into little monkeys, and a balloon twister can create fun animal creations. Start your search here.
