Adorable Sock Monkey Party

I have a special treat for you today from our friend Ashley of Ashley Daniell Photography from Tallahassee, Florida.  If you are looking for a fun theme for your little man, this sock monkey theme is for you!  Ashley has created some really fun details that are doable for anyone to incorporate into their birthday party preparations.  What I adore is the AMAZING red, white and brown pom-pom backdrop behind the drink and sweets table.  You can find these pom-pom’s from Paper White Designs, and then secure them to a cardboard/foam backer to re-create this look that Ashley and her husband created.  And one of our favorite designer friends (you’ve seen her DIY videos here on Pizzazzerie), Ashley Brooke Designs, created this custom designed invitation featuring cutie pie Knox himself with his sock monkey!

There were so many details for the guests to enjoy, including the super cute Thank You Mason Jars filled with “Sock Monkey” Cookie ingredients!  Ashley got her idea from Bakerella, and transformed the design of them to fit her Sock Monkey Theme with some Brown M&M’s and cute Thank You tags tied to each Mason Jar!  They look super tasty and each guest got to take one home, along with the instructions on how to bake the cookies.  My second favorite use of the mason jars was the refreshments in the metal tins!  For the adults, there was a Sangria with fruit pieces in it, and also cucumber water for everyone else.  Perfect refreshments for an outside party!

The center of attention at this party was definitely Knox, and I just had to share this darling sequence of photos from Ashley Daniell Photography.  The giant cupcake was made by Knox’s “Granny”, and I just love seeing these photos of him enjoying every moment of this cupcake!
