Handmade Jungle Themed Party

A few days ago, my baby boy turned ONE.  Happy Birthday, Sweet Guy!
We celebrated his birthday with a Jungle Themed Party. So lots of green, brown, and yellow! We had giraffes, hippos, and elephants.

For this occasion I wanted the birthday table to look like was in the jungle, so I went to JoAnn's (perfect excuse to go!) and found fabrics that would match my theme.  The backdrop, green and white leaves, complimented the banner really well. It looked like the banner was in between all the leaves.

For the table, I used a giraffe print flannel fabric also from the Nursery Prints section at JoAnn's. Then I used some wrinkled paper and put some more hippos around the table.

As far as food, we had Monkey Bread, sugar cookies, chips, hamburgers, and cake. You could also make Jungle Cakes, Muddy Cakes (Brownies),  and have animal crackers.

Gotta have Monkey Bred!

Cake Toppers made with Create-a-Critter

A special note to my baby:

We have been so blessed to have you and the honor to be your parents. I love all your sweet smiles and giggles when you play with your sister. I also love the times when you are so serious that nobody can get you to smile. I love how you like to clap at the beginning of a new song or when you shake your head to dance. I love your playful smile when I tell you "no" and you take off crawling even faster than before. I love it how you crawl everywhere calling for "Ma-Ma" and "Da-Da." More than anything, I love the fact that you are here and you have recovered so well!
I can't wait to see what all you are going to be learning the next few months and year!

He looks so serious, but I know he was still having a good time. He just wanted the balloons behind the camera!!!

We hope you liked your Birthday, Buddy!
