Here is what Michelle had to say about the party-  ”This is definitely not your typical Curious George party – I wanted to do a fun, modern + girlie spin on it since most of the Curious George parties I’ve seen are for boys. Chevron was the main pattern used throughout and the fabulous Jessica of Pen N’ Paperflowers designed the adorable little monkey!

Gosh, was Cami’s little get-up ever CUTE. The amazing Rachel of *golden* created the most adorable tee, as always! Her work is pure genius. My friend Amy of AMK’s Boutique made her pretty matching headband and the super cute custom necklace from Miss CoCo Designs was perfect! I found the adorable yellow skirt in San Diego back in AUGUST at the Queen Bee Market. I know, I’m one of those that totally shops for deals and steals EARLY.

I used the same yellow fabric from my daughter’s Elmo inspired party last year for the table and also reused the red + white chevron table runner from Cami’s Valentine’s Playdate made by the very talented Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations. I’m all about using things from past parties! I scored all of the matching table cloths, plates, napkins, utensils, plastic dessert trays, etc. last year from Party City on clearance. As for the dessert table, it was perfect thanks to all the incredible ladies who are beyond talented in the baking department. Kelly of Lillycakes made the adorable cake pops, mini cupcakes, banana creme dessert cups and mini cherry pies. The adorable + glittery monkey cookies were made by the talented Allyson Jane. The yellow hats, banana’s and Curious Cami cookies made by The Cookie Jar were fabulous and a big hit.

Isn’t the cake just beautiful? So simple, yet perfect. I saw a sample quilted cake very similar in Paige’s {Polka Dot Bakery} portfolio except wanted her to make all the little dots in the color scheme and it turned out awesome! The glittery “Curious Cami” billboard handmade by the talented Kristy of The Purple Pug is just too cute for words. I ended up taking one of the monkey’s off the cake pops and placed it on the cake :)

The tree my hubby handmade was so AWESOME. He totally rocks and loves helping make + create new things for her parties. Totally a last minute addition but he ROCKED it and it was a big focal point above the table. He also made the red monkey signs seen on the sides of the table and spray painted the mason jars that held matching tulips. Those funky stands that hold up the dessert trays were found at Hobby Lobby on clearance, which he also spray painted.

I’ve had my eye on wanting to purchase Blumeboxes for awhile now, but wanted to use them for something other than the norm, so I added tissue poms I already had from past parties on top for a fun flower-like look on the mantle. I made the DIY fabric garland using the five alternating colors for only $9. Love how it’s so simple yet adds so much to the backdrop. I purchased the adorable ornate picture frame also seen on the mantle from Poppy Tree Frames.”
