A Girly Monkey Birthday Party
It was a Monkey of a good time this weekend as we celebrated the girls 4th birthday party at our local play gym. Barrel of Monkey’s is the gym so it was only appropriate to have a monkey birthday party filled with all things monkey! The gym was filled with little people (and big people) and we all had fun celebrating the big day!
The kids got to run around the gym swing on monkey bars (only appropriate since it was a monkey party), flying through the air, jumping for bubbles, climbing a mini rock wall, and even stopping to have fun doing a monkey craft.
After all the play time there was a quick stop for lunch. The kids had their own table and the adults had their own table. The kids lunch table was made up of fruit, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cups of pirate booty of Annie’s Cheddar Rabbits, cheese, and chicken nuggets. For the adults the table was filled with two varieties of chicken salad sandwiches, pasta salad, fruit salad, and mini cupcakes.
After lunch some more playing and running around the monkey gym only enough playing to work up their appetite for dessert….cupcakes. Chocolate and Peanut Butter, Banana and Cream Cheese, and Chocolate and Vanilla Buttercream topped with monkey and flower fondant toppers. Also on the table were monkey sugar cookies that went into the kids favor bags at the end of the party so they could take home to enjoy later.
Other items stuck inside the favor bags were: monkey bracelets, coloring book, crayons, play-do, organic lollipops, monkey erasers, bouncy ball, and the adorable monkey cookies.
We all had a good time….especially the birthday girls….
And even the resident monkey at the Barrel of Monkey’s had a monkey of a good time….
