Monkey Business

A friend had a baby shower and I was able to do the decorations for it. We decided on a Monkey theme (which totally works out because that is my sons 2nd Birthday theme, yeah jumpstart). My sister had done a bridal shower with a branch centerpiece and it turned out ADORABLE, so I thought monkeys might work as well. Here is what I came up with…

First you have to get a pot and decoupage it with some cute scrapbook paper…

Burlap was on sale last week so I picked some up and decided to make a table runner from it, and I hot glued some ribbon around the edges.

On to the “FUN” (sarcastic tone) part, finding the branches. My own little monkey came with me on my journey to find the perfect branches. I found some up the street but it was attached to a huge dead tree and with my arm out the window dragging it down the street outside of my car I thought “I must look pretty silly, I certainly feel it;)”…

I used some plaster to keep the branches in place and then I got to go WILD decorating the tree…

She had a beautiful shower with so many friends (she is well loved, deservingly so) that wanted to share that night with her…

I didn't get a picture of the finished monkey gift table I made but here it is during the redo... (By the Way it was $.99 at Savers)!!

Enjoy that baby boy!!!!
