Sock Monkey Party

You've made it through your baby's first year, and it's major cause for celebration. Not only is it exciting to celebrate a first birthday, but both mom and dad deserve the chance to have a party too for they have managed to survive the sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and endless outfit changes. It's time to throw a party that is age appropriate for your little one and loads of fun to enjoy with them, and these ten parties are certain to provide loads of inspiration.

Sock Monkey Party

It's hard not to refer to toddlers as little monkeys. They're curious and they like to get into everything they possibly can, no matter how high or out of reach it may be, so a sock monkey birthday party couldn't be more appropriate for a one-year-old. This adorable party by Susan Gentile featured many little monkey treats like banana chips and monkey vines along with a sock monkey topped cake and sock monkey cupcake picks. Guests were encouraged to make their own sock monkey, and the birthday boy wore a sock monkey-inspired birthday hat to top it all off!
