Little Monkey’s First Birthday!

I have been waiting for quite awhile to get my hands on these pictures: My friend’s Adrienne’s baby’s first birthday bash! Better late than never!  (At least I am posting this before Addison turns 2! ha!) 

Addison was obsessed with monkeys, particularly her Grandpa’s stellar monkey impression, so it was easy for Adrienne to choose the theme for her party.

 Adrienne set up a cute dessert table as the main attraction at Addison’s pool party.

There were cupcakes, monkey cake pops, Addison’s monkey cake, banana bread, and some smaller treats: salt water taffy, brownie bites, animal cookies, and malt balls.

Creative names for some of the treats: Malt Chocolate Coconuts, Ooh Ooh Aah Aah Taffy, & Monkey Bites :)

The monkey cake was my contribution to the party. Didn’t it turn out cute?

Addison approved. :)

Adrienne also ordered a cute printable set that included custom water bottle labels and party circles.
