Sock Monkey Baby Shower

When we found out we were having boy/girl twins I decided to decorate their nursery with sock monkey’s and vintage toys.  I used rich chocolate brown, red and cream and 3 years later still love their little room.

So when my sister told me she needed some help throwing a baby shower for a dear friend, who is decorating her nursery with sock monkey’s, I was super excited.

I used a brown and red color palette with touches of baby blue.  I incorporated polka dots and stripes to keep it playful.  I wanted everything to have a vintage feel, starting with the invitations.  Kori from Paper and Pigtails customized her vintage toy package to coordinate with my color scheme.  She was wonderful to work with and everything coordinated perfectly!

The food table was full of yummy goodies and accented with vintage toys

There were plenty of sweets


Guest were asked to leave well wishes and advice for the mommy-to-be

I made a banner using my Cricut and onesies


Everyone went home with Monkey Munchies and Treats to Go

It was a fun party, perfect for a sweet little monkey!
