Nicholas’ birthday is in three weeks and I have ZERO ideas. But as I was thinking about birthday parties for boys, I remembered that I had never posted these photos from a friend’s party all the way back in 2012!
Our friends, Tim and Nicole, threw this party for their son and at the time I asked her if I could blog about it, but I must have gotten distracted and just forgot. Since then, their whole family has relocated to Papua New Guinea, where they are serving as missionaries. Nicole now writes a blog about their adventures over there.
This was seriously one of the cutest parties.
We were greeted at the door by the Man in the Yellow hat.
The kids participated in simple activities inside like decorating party hats with Curious George stickers and pin a butterfly on the poster. If I remember correctly, Nicole said she got all of her supplies from Target and the party supply store.
Lunch was a baked potato bar with chili and a lot of other toppings and there was fruit and Pb & J available for the kids.
It was a beautiful fall day, so we ate a picnic lunch outside in the back yard.
There were monkey cupcakes and a beautiful cake for dessert. (Nicole said the ideas were courtesy of Pinterest.)
The cupcakes are frosted with chocolate, then have a vanilla wafer on top for the mouth area, crackers for the ears, and white chocolate chips for eyes.
The kids were content to play in the yard for a while.
Everyone took home a new Curious George book as a party favor.
We all had a great time and it was a fun memory to make before we sent their family off to serve.
