One look at this adorable SOCK MONKEY FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Jennifer Laws of The Laws of my Life and you will know why I chose to feature it next. I just love what Jennifer did with this theme!

Jennifer said– “Jameson was an unexpected blessing. After having twins we were not sure we could handle one more. (I mean, how could our home even be sanitary enough for a baby!) But, after he came in to this world, we knew GOD had better plans for our family! Jameson has brought so much HOPE, LOVE and JOY to our lives! We could not have made it through such a rough year without his unending smile! This celebration was the perfect way to honor him, celebrate his life and praise God for His wonderfully perfect blessing!

When we brought him home he was dressed in his sock monkey embroidered onesie, brown pants, a hand knit hat and socks. He was a sweet baby and the youngest of 3…all under 3! Today, one year later, we are so excited to share with you his first birthday celebration! (And, yes, this crazy party planner mama had the “theme” planned from the beginning!) I decided to incorporate his sock monkey outfit with a “celebration” honoring him, along with a champagne toast and a musical guest!

Without further ado, check out Jameson’s First Birthday Celebration!”

    The red wagons came from "A Bloom" in Tahlequah, OK. The number is 918.453.9555. Talk to Josh and tell him "Brandi Barnett" referred you regarding the red wagons. (She is the one who purchased them as a gift for my older boys about a year ago!) I hope you can get them for your party too!! Enjoy…

      Elizabeth -I used particle board cut to 4X6 from Lowe’s (~$8) and wrapped it with teacher board paper from Mardel (~$5-$8) which is also 4ft high and long enough to wrap and tape on back. They have most all colors. The red and white polka dot paper is wrapping paper!

    Hi! I love this! We are doing this theme for my sons first birthday in March. Where did you get the signs made?

    Hi There!
    I ordered the signs from Chickabug and then had them printed at Office Depot. I glued them to foam board to look more sturdy!! Hope that helps!!!

    This is all very cute!! I’m doing the sock monkey theme for my little boys in April!! Is there a website where I can find the little wagons? Also what about the first Halloween, Dig In etc. Is there a website I can purchase them from?
