A Curious George Party (Charlotte's 2nd Birthday)

 
Despite Hurricane Sandy threatening to ruin the festivities, we were able to successfully throw Charlotte's second birthday party on Sunday. Not as many guest showed up (due to the crummy weather) but we still had plenty of fun. In the above photo you can see a few of the decorations that were hanging on the wall. Tissue Paper flowers, a pennant banner, and those beautiful accordion flowers you all saw in the sneak peek.

A few pinwheels I made (using papers from Crate Paper and Echo Park) rest in the little bucket that held the dining ware.
You may have noticed a framed poster behind the pinwheels in that last photo. It says "Keep calm and be a good little monkey." I made this little poster in photoshop, bought a frame from the dollar store, and used it as part of decor. It is now hanging in my daughter's room. Two perfect purposes! Feel free to download it for your own use. Just remember to click on the picture to enlarge it to it's original size!
A Curious George party just wouldn't be a party without the monkey himself!
Treat bags for the kiddos filled with Curious George gummies and a few little plastic toys. I made the little tags and printed them out as 2x3 photos. They came out adorable! 
  
Feel free to download and use them for your Curious George party! 
Banana Nut Bread cupcakes. Very tasty!
My best friend and godmother to my daughter made this adorable Curious George cake!

Another bit of the party that I forgot to take a picture of was this little book. We had it set up on a stand and guest signed it as they came in. It will be nice for Charlotte to look back on when she gets older.

And last but not least - Curious George napkins and a few of the plates. We had Curious George dessert plates but they went quick once the cake was cut into!

Most importantly of all - Charlotte enjoyed her birthday party. She loved the company, the decorations, and of course all the presents! I can't believe she is two years old. She is growing up way to fast but I am enjoying every moment of it!
