Carter's mom, Jenny, put together a fabulous blue, chocolate and lime polka dot monkey party for his 1st birthday. She made so many things herself, including the monkey cupcakes pictured above (she admits they took FOREVER to make...but so worth it!). I love how she made Carter's DIY cupcake tower (click for tutorial on previous post).
This huge gallon jar of "monkey punch" is so cute too! She shares her secret to this affordable party drink container on her blog:
I think Carter had a really great day - just look at that sweet face!
Great job, Jenny. Thanks for sharing a little slice of Carter's special day with us. :)
