Baby Shower With Monkey Theme
All baby showers need a great theme in order to be an unforgettable experience, and one of the best and most popular themes by far is the monkey theme. Monkeys are adorable in nature and quite similar to humans; therefore, making your baby shower a monkey theme is a great option, especially if you are having a baby boy. To make your party one-of-a-kind, you can follow some of the suggestions and ideas in this article.
Food: What is a monkey’s favorite food? Bananas, of course; therefore, if you are planning a monkey themed baby shower, you should try to incorporate bananas into the food. For dessert, you can look for a caterer that makes banana cupcakes or cake with cream cheese frosting. If you can’t find a bakery that makes that particular flavor, you can always ask the dessert catering company to make cupcakes or a cake with edible monkey made out of fondant or icing. In addition, you can serve banana chips, banana ice cream, banana bread and chocolate covered bananas to emphasize the monkey theme.
Entertainment: A great entertainment idea for a monkey themed baby shower is to hire a monkey trainer to come to your baby shower. A lot of entertainment companies have packages that include monkeys as entertainment, which can make your party an experience that will never be forgotten. If you can’t hire a monkey trainer for your party, ask your guests to bring baby pictures so you can play Name the Baby. To play this game, players will try to match a person with their baby picture. Another game that you can play is Pin the Tail on the Monkey, which is sold at amazon.com and even some party stores.
Invitation: For your invitations, you should adhere to your theme and select invitations that are relevant to the monkey theme. You can select a card that has a cute picture of a real baby monkey; a cute cartoon of a baby monkey or you can even use a banana shaped card. If you are adventurous, send a banana with each invitation because it will certainly leave an impression on the guests.
Decorations: Decorations are definitely an important aspect for any party, especially a baby shower. When selecting your decorations, you can go with your theme and decorate the room to resemble a jungle. A great idea is to make your centerpiece a cute tree with cardboard monkeys perched on the branches. In addition, you can make streamers special by sticking little cardboard monkeys on them.
