{Real Parties} Monkey See, Monkey Do. Miss Madeleine Just Turned Two!

We went to the cutest monkey themed birthday party this past weekend for a little girl that is in our playgroup! Her Mom did a fantastic job with all of the details!!

The children tables were precious! The tops were covered with butcher paper and there were custom crayons to match the party colors at each place setting. Then, bananas were set atop pink and green (the party colors) plastic cake plates which were found at Hobby Lobby.

I loved the different ribbon tied on each chair.

The sign that greeted guests at the door. It said "Swing on In!!"

Nesi served lots of yummy food. My favorite were the mini banana bread muffins! And I loved how she spread pink zebra print wrapping paper on the island!

A banana split station...perfect for the theme!

The party favors were too cute. The cookies were set on banana runts!
