a sock monkey party for wynter!

So a few months ago, my girl became a bit obsessed with sock monkeys. Who knew?

And then she asked if she could have a sock monkey themed party … and yeah … I was all over that one! Proof in the photos below!

It’d also been a while since we’ve had an all-out party, and ahem, I still haven’t posted Hunter’s Fairytale Princess party {beware!}, so I decided to get my creative on and throw my Wynt a little shindig!

Ready? Set. Here goes!

In my opinion, every party starts with a great invite and takes off from there …

In lieu of gifts, Wynter asked for the donation of a gently
used stuffed animal to donate to a local animal shelter.

What sock monkey party is complete without monkey pops?

And banana candies?

And sock monkey party hats?

And favor boxes filled with all kinds o’ monkey goodness?

And the cutest fondant sock monkey ever?

And big yellow gumballs {that I may still have coming out of my ears!}?

We had the party in our backyard. So to greet guests, we had a ginormous
sock monkey and a sign directing guests to come around back.

A sock monkey pinata!

And some goofy monkeys running amuck!

One of my favorite details was the sock monkey
“photo booth” … the kids had some fun with it!

And for Wynter’s school treat, we brought in a sock monkey
cup-cake … needless to say, it was a huge hit!

Everyone seemed to have a great time. My Wynt was in heaven. And I had some fun getting my creative on again!

How ’bout you? Is there a detail that’s your favorite?

  1. Amazing, I am not creative at all, so always enjoy getting new ideas from others. Did not know you have MS, I will include you in my prayer list for sure. Thanks for sharing your God given talent. I also love the sign by your door, (Gods rules), perfect!

    LOVE – LOVE – LOVE!!! While I love it ALL my favorite part is how you used Wynt’s giant sock monkey as a prop directing everyone around back. Genius! Talk about setting the theme right from the very start. I can still see her shoving it in the car when we went to IOP for Labor Day and how she carried him around the house. So many smiles over here! I imagine she was over the moon with how the party turned out.

    Speaking of the party…it’s nice to see you back in the party planning/creative biz :-) Your ideas & parties are truly some of the best I’ve ever seen :-)

  4. Oh, holy adorableness!!! What a darling party idea!!! Go Wynter! :-)

  5. And all the sock monkeys in the world now want to move to your house!

    Well done mom!

    I have a special fondness for your parties, because this is of course, how I found you. I love all the details and love that you put into Wynter’s event. I laughed at the comment regarding the yellow gumballs. I still have pastel gumballs from my daughter’s ballerina party in May! Can’t wait to see the picture’s of the fairy party!
