Curious George Party

This post contains affiliate links
This last weekend I was asked to throw a 2nd birthday party for my cousin's son.

On our family vacation back in May, my cousin had mentioned that they were wanting to have a Curious George party, and asked if I wanted to help out. 

Ok, first of all, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to help, second… Hello Curious George!!  If you didn’t know before… I have a major obsession with that little monkey.  Just check out my scrapbook room by clicking here.

I took so many pictures and had such a blast.

I created each place setting using the following items:

For the centerpieces I grabbed some metal tins and buckets from my stash and my cousin (who happens to be a florist) created the floral arrangements.  They were the perfect touch to this event!

We served lemonade out of my fun red drink dispenser and provided mason jars with the cute lids and Red Paper Straws adorned with a sweet sentiment.

I wrapped bottled waters with custom labels.

My cousin painted these cardboard letters that were used for his 2 year photo shoot and added them to the party décor.

I created this cute T-shirt by using my DIY Screen print method that you can read about here.

I created this fun party hat by using up some scrapbook paper, pom pom trim and a feather boa that I had in my stash.

My sweet friend Bonnie made the cake and we added this wooden toy to bring George into the theme.

On each place setting, I stamped the placemats.  I don't know that you can find this stamp anymore, but I would check Ebay.

We made banana pudding and topped them off with chocolate chips and a vanilla wafer.  Using paper cups we added the Curious George printable tag, some bakers twine and served them with wooded spoons.

 
 
I used more Curious George tins from my stash and used them to create height and depth on the food table.

We used a Curious George Metal Lunch box and placed Curious George and the Birthday Surprise books in there for each family to take home.

For the backdrop we used yellow fabric, and hung large framed prints and hung paper lanterns and small curious George plush clips above.

Whew that was a lot of fun!!  It truly was as much fun as it looks like it was.  

The party was out on my Aunt and Uncles beautiful farm in Beavercreek Oregon,  and the weather was absolutely perfect!
