While looking at Project Nursery for nursery ideas, I saw the parties that people were also posting. So, naturally, when my little guy was going to turn 1, I consulted this site again, looking for ideas. For some reason, monkeys have been a theme with him, so I chose to go that route. I liked the "Mod Monkey" theme but instead of buying that party themed decor, I designed everything myself using digital software.
DIY is definitely the way the go. I used the tutorial for the balloon wreath from here.
