Sock Monkey Baby Shower

I'm a bit of a sucker for anything sock monkey related, so when I saw this baby shower I was so excited to share it with you! This event was hosted, planned, and designed by Elizabeth Seaton of Posh Paperie in honor of fellow Posh Paperie designer Karrie Pyke, with photos by Jackie Wonders Photography. There are so many adorable sock monkeys making appearances in so many cute details! You'll find them adorning the treat bags, gift tags, game cards, accompanying the gifts, on the candy labels, favor tags, and, of course, where else but hanging from the chandelier.

Posh Paperie did such an incredible job designing and hand crafting the fantastic paper goods! The event design is pitch perfect -- such a great pairing of vintage and modern. The red and brown color palette works so well along with the stripes, polka dots, and argyle (so clever for a sock monkey theme). Every last detail is accounted for, from the polka dotted balloons all the way down to the striped straws.
