Decorating for birthday parties is fun. There are many themes available for different age groups. Some themes, such as monkey themes, are good for all age groups.
Decorating with monkey birthday supplies is a breeze with all the decorating supplies available. Invitations are the place to start. These are available for special ages as well as generic ages. The monkeys on them range from cartoon monkeys to cute monkeys, from real monkeys to stuffed monkeys to the ever-popular sock monkey.
The next thing to look for should be plates, napkins and cups. These can either match the invitations or blend with other monkey styles. Blending several styles of the same theme can be a funky way to decorate. As long as the theme is the same, in this case monkeys, seeing different versions can be fun.
Next in line are the actual party decorations. A tablecloth can make a plain table look more festive and makes cleaning up a breeze. Hats can be placed at each place setting along with noise-makers. Tie monkey balloons to each chair, to the birthday chair or scatter throughout the house. Scatter monkey balloons with solid balloons in complimentary colors.
More monkey decorations can include streamers to hang across the table, a door-size monkey banner to greet guests, a monkey mailbox cover (add some balloons to the mailbox for a great way to point the way to the birthday house) and a monkey piñata. These come either the traditional way (beat them with a stick) or with ribbons to pull which are good for younger children. For even more decorating, add some stuffed monkeys sitting around the house, play Pin the Tail on the Monkey and serve a monkey cake. Cakes can be bought at a bakery, made at home or bought as ice cream cakes. Banana ice cream might be a good flavor to serve with the cake.
Send each guest home with a monkey party bag filled with goodies. Some ideas are small stuffed monkeys, tiny banana-shaped candies (found at most party stores) and monkey charm bracelets or monkey bubbles.
Finally, send out monkey Thank You cards to thank you guests for coming.
