Curious George Themed Boys Birthday Party

PARTY DETAILS, as told by One Stylish Party founder, Tara Berger.

My son Mason absolutely LOVES Curious George. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t watch or read about that adorable little monkey getting into mischief. As a mother, it is exciting to see my son start to show strong interests in certain things, so I couldn’t wait for his 2nd birthday so I could throw an entire party dedicated to his favorite monkey – Curious George!

VENUE
The party was hosted at Front Street Fountain, which is an old fashioned soda fountain and ice cream shop in Media, PA. Our private party room featured kid-sized tables, a flat screen TV and an entire chalkboard wall for the kids to go crazy. It was a perfect setting for a two year old birthday party, and the kids loved the build-your-own ice cream sundae bar!

DESSERT TABLE
The dessert table was the focal point of the party. This table was an absolute must, since guests of all ages were able to enjoy the treats. The table included a variety of red, blue and yellow sweets, along with special Curious George details to tie the party theme all together.
The Candy Dot inspired cake was from Viso’s Desserts topped with a DIY mini cake bunting banner. Three boxes wrapped in coordinating blue and white polka dot paper and ribbon served as pedestals for the cake and cupcakes. On either side of the cake, there were red, yellow and blue colored cupcakes decorated with white butter cream icing and printable cupcake wrappers and cupcake toppers by Lollipop Ink.
The table also included DIY pretzel rods and marshmallow pops, made with candy melts and matching sanding sugar. But the true hit of the party with both kids and adults, were the lollipop sugar cookies. These cookies were another DIY project. I used my own family sugar cookie recipe, and then followed the tutorial from SweetSugarBelle.com to create the cookies. Each sugar cookie lollipop was individually wrapped and placed on a plate for all to enjoy.
Other details of the dessert table included a Mason jar (how fitting?) filled with cherry gumballs, two Curious George books, framed birthday invitation, a Curious George stuffed animal, party favors displayed in a yellow wooden basket and a printable pennant banner above the table.

TABLES & DECOR
The room included four kid sized tables and two long tables for adults. The adult tables were adorned with yellow table covers, a colorful balloon bouquet and two centerpieces. The centerpieces were another DIY project with a 5” printable party circle attached to a dowel rod and placed inside a red Blumebox. Of all the products I came across while planning this party, I think Blumebox was my favorite find. Their product is an adorable, yet inexpensive solution to creating the perfect party centerpieces.
Other decorations included a printable Curious George Birthday banner hung along the chalkboard wall, and a DIY month-by-month photo banner on the opposite wall. There was also a small activity table placed next to the dessert table with Curious George coloring sheets, chalk for the chalk board, a framed Curious George birthday sign and a balloon bouquet.

FAVORS
The kids received small Curious George board books, wrapped in matching blue and white polka dot paper from Birthday Express. All favors were tied with red raffia and included a multi-colored swirl lollipop purchased on Amazon and a Curious George favor tag from Lollipop Ink.
