Carrie M By Carrie M  in Birthday


Party Recap

I knew I didn't want Sock Monkey, Mod Monkey, or jungle/safari - he wanted plain monkeys. But it sort of evolved into Barrel of Monkeys theme!


Party Highlights

  • Desserts


  • Party Favors

    Barrel of Monkeys and banana Runts candy bags

  • Activities / Games

    Jumper "Monkeys Jumping on a Bed"

  • Budget

    ?? What budget? ;)

  • What People Ate

    Cake, Monkey bread, Banana pudding, "monkey munch", banana chips, oreo balls, monkey cake pops, and M&M candy

  • What People Drank

    Lemonade and Chocolate milk out of Barrel Drink dispenser

  • Best Moment

    Mattox (the birthday boy) blew out his candles IMMEDIATELY after I lit them - before anyone could even start singing Happy Birthday.

  • Funniest Moment

    Mattox kept whispering the entire time. Have no idea why except he is shy, so I guess he was trying to avoid any extra attention.

  • Most Touching Moment

    His older sister saved her "money" from school (from learning sight words) and "bought" him a plastic dinosaur because she remembered it was his birthday - and she wanted to get him a present just from her.

  • Best Dressed

    His friend-girl, Emory! Had a monkey dress and kept the monkey ears on the entire party!

    I bought the kids "Hugs" juice bottles and emptied them. You should be able to find them in any grocery store/supermarket in the juice box aisle (next to Capri Suns, etc.)
