How to host a Monkey Baby Shower!

This weekend was my brother's girlfriend's baby shower that her sister and I hosted together. 

 The theme that we went with was Monkeys! The day was great and I have to share some pictures of our hard work! 

 So let's start with the beginning - 

The Invitation! 

 I decided to contact Inkberry Cards again because of the amazing work they did for Jude's first birthday party invitation. 
 And oh my gosh - Jenn pulled it off again! She created this completely custom baby shower invite just for me!! 

 What do you think?

  If you are in need of some great party invites and supplies, Inkberry Cards is your company - Guess what - Jenn has offered one of my readers their very own custom party package! More on that later in March!! GIVEAWAY!! YAY!!

 Okay, back to the shower... I decided to stick with the traditional blue and pink since they are having one of each. I also thought that incorporating the dots in the decorations made the event more mod!

The Cake!

The Centerpieces!

 Our centerpieces. We used pink and blue pails filled with Banana Runts! ( you know cuz monkeys eat bananas!!) And in each pail we put a chocolate monkey pop from Mandies Candies! Again, a great company that I have worked with a number of times! Look her up! The monkeys turned out perfect! Along side the pail we added some beautiful pink and blue flowers.
