Our Little Monkey Turned ONE!

When thinking about Baby Fix-It's birthday, a theme was the easiest part to choose! Our little guy loves anything animal-related but seems to just LOVE monkeys. And so, a Monkey Jungle First Birthday Party it was!

We went back and forth on the menu and venue a lot, and finally settled on hosting the party at our condo. It was tight, but we made it work.

On the menu:
Tiger's Tzatziki (Tzatziki and Pita Chips)
Babboon Butter (Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter spread and Graham Crackers)
Hippo's Hummus (with fresh Pepper)

Pulled Pork on slider Pretzel Buns
Homemade Mac and Cheese

Birthday Cake
Italian Cookies

It was all quite delicious!

We filled our condo to the brim with loved ones: friends, family, and even Nana, Poppi, Auntie Julia and Aunt Brenda made the trek from Rhode Island!

And of course there was cake.

Wearing Daddy's Birthday Hat that Grandma Justine made when he was a little guy!

And there were presents too.

It was truly the perfect way to celebrate a year with our wonderful little boy!


  1. So cute! You did a great job! Love the family picture with Ford in his highchair and how you and your husband coordinated!!

  2. What a fun looking party! I love the theme and all the decor.

    And happy belated birthday to your little boy!

  3. It looks like so much fun! Just wondering---what is Babcon Butter?
