From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Sock Monkey Themed First Birthday Party

Sock Monkey Themed First Birthday Party

As a photographer and designer, Marcie Maler of Maler Photography loves to go all out with parties, and she put that creative drive to work for her son Christian's first birthday party. His love of bananas and family nicknames of "monkey, chunky monkey, and monk" provided the inspiration for the adorable sock monkey theme. Marcie had a head start on the decor with sock monkeys they already owned, along with vintage props she uses for newborn sessions. Some additional highlights of the day included a monthly photo banner documenting his first year and the cutest sock monkey cake by Sugar Bakery. To see much more from this party, check out the full gallery to see all the photos submitted.
