Monkeys Hanging Around
For Paxton's 1st birthday party, I continued (and maybe concluded?) his monkey-themed year with monkey decorations. I kept the decorations very simple, using his banner, some stuffed monkeys from his bedroom hanging from the chandelier and candle holders, and a bag of balloons.
We had a very low-key party. Just the local aunts, uncles and cousins over for dinner (shishkabobs) and dessert (monkey cupcakes of course).
I can't claim credit for the design of the cupcakes, though I did make them. I just searched Google images for "monkey cupcakes" and I got LOTS of ideas. :)
