Monkey Around Birthday Party Ideas
Our professional party consultants always recommend adding solid color party supplies to your decorations for a more professional look. Try layering solid color plates and napkins with your themed party wear, or layer your themed plates on top of solid colored table covers. Adding solids fills out your decorations without stretching your wallet.
Tie balloons onto the mailbox to alert your guests as to where the party is. You can also make monkey signs (use coloring books for inspiration) and glue a garden stake to the back. Stick them in the ground in the front yard or leading to the party. The signs could say things like "Monkey Crossing", "Monkeys on the Loose", or "Let's Go Bananas!".
For your centerpiece, place a tropical plant or flower in the middle of the buffet table and place a color-coordinated bow on the front. Position a plush monkey leaning up against it! Place bunches of bananas on the table as well, for both decoration and snacks!
Before the party, hide bananas all over the party area or yard. Let the kids hunt for them, and give prizes to the child who finds the most.
Some fun party food ideas include:
- Banana Smoothies - you'll need yogurt, bananas, and honey. Or use ice cream for banana milk shakes. Yum!! Just place in your blender for a few moments and you'll have tasty treats in no time! What could be easier?
- Monkey Chow - mix nuts, shredded coconut, raisins, dried banana chips, and chocolate chips in a large serving bowl.
- Jungle Juice - make your favorite punch recipe, then and add green food coloring.
Make sure to have simple food choices for very young guests. Bananas of course are appropriate, but add peanut butter sandwiches, fresh fruit, and chicken nuggets...all are easy finger-foods.
Cupcakes are a great choice for birthday parties, and make a great sweet treat to take home too. Or take a napkin or plate to your local bakery so they can match the colors and style of your custom cake to this fun theme! Go wild!
