Did you know 2016 is the year of the monkey?
Well, if not, now you know!
I know it isn’t a literal meaning, as in monkey themed things will just pop up, but I couldn’t help being inspired by cute little monkeys and bananas. I thought I’d put together an adorable baby shower (or birthday party) inspired by cute jungle monkeys and bananas. Lots of brown and yellow elements of course, but I would love to incorporate a banana scent into the party room so it was just subtle enough to be noticed. And of course, if space permitted: large, leafy tropical foliage plants.
Here’s what I had in mind:
