Pink Monkey and Bananas Kid's 1st Birthday Party Idea and Free Printable Templates Kathy Beymer at Merriment Design

I was totally stumped trying to think of birthday party theme ideas for Elise’s 1st birthday. And then Shane suggested having a Pink Monkey and Bananas 1st birthday party theme and it just felt perfect.

Elise has snuggled with her adorable Pink Monkey Security Blankie (by Angel Dear) since she was just a few months old – he’s her lovey and #1 bedtime friend. So I drew a Pink Monkey illustration and used the heck out of it on invitations and front door signs…

birthday party hats, monkey thank you cards, bubbles favors, a monkey cake for Elise and bananas-filled layered sheet cake for her guests…

I also created a “Happy 1st Birthday Elise” banner free printable hanging sign and hung it up with yellow dot ribbon, solid yellow ribbon and vintage yellow ric-rac.

    I don`t know if there is a link here that says, but I haven`t seen one so far… Where did you get those pink & yellow balloons? They are the right shades. You did a fab job with this monkey theme. My almost 1yr young daughter is crazy for both monkeys & the color yellow, and bananas!!!!!

    cheers!!

    Love this theme and can’t wait to do this for my daughters 1st birthday!

  3. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Hey Julie, that is so cute that Zoey has the same monkey! He is still Elise’s #1 pal. How was the birthday party?

  4. Julie and Zoey Says:

    I love this theme! Zoey has the same monkey lovey (x3). She eats, sleeps, and plays with her pink monkey lovey. This is amazing! She turns 1 in 2 weeks.

  5. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Hi Sarah, so happy you like it! The free hat template should be fixed now. I did get your email address so will give you more details over email. Thanks!

  6. Sarah Says:

    I am in love with this party idea!! I had already decided we were doing a monkey theme cause I call my baby girl “chunky monkey”. I was trying to download the templates and for whatever reason, it isn’t working for me. If I gave you my email could you send them to me?? I would greatly appreciate it!!
    Thanks so much!

    What generosity! Thank you- my daughter turns three next month and this may be just the thing for her. What a creative and wonderful mother you are.

  8. Kathy Beymer Says:

    Thanks, Justine! Which one would you like to see first?

  9. Justine Says:

    AMAZING party, thanks so much for sharing! What an adorable theme yet outside the box, you know!? You did such an amazing job and I absolutely love all the ideas. Look forward to the tutorials!
