Baby Shower Monkey Theme
While you can serve just about anything for the main and side dishes, allow bananas to be part of the desert plan. Banana cream pie, banana bread, and frozen, sliced bananas with a toothpick, are just a few choices. Most baby showers include some form of cake. Here is an easy way to give everyone a monkey treat.
- Bake chocolate cupcakes and ice them with chocolate frosting.
- Place one standard size vanilla wafer cookie on the bottom to be used as a nose and mouth. Use gel frosting to draw two dots for the nose and a smile underneath for the mouth.
- Take two mini cookies and put them on the sides for ears. You can use any of the Nabisco 100 calorie packs or Keebler mini cookies.
- Add eyes using Honey Nut Cheerios, M&Ms or any soft round sweet candy or cereal.
Non-alcoholic punches are also tasty and simple to make. Just combine equal parts: fruit juice, fruit punch, and a citrus carbonated pop, like Sprite or 7up. Add strawberry or orange sherbet just before serving. Using pineapple juice adds an extra taste of the tropics.
Think greenery like plants and trees. Anything that will give your location a jungle atmosphere is ideal, like green tableware and tablecloths. If you can get your hands on a couple of coconuts, they would great table decorations. There is a small game called “Barrel of Monkeys” where the object is to hook the arms of the monkeys together. Buy one of these games and spread the monkeys out on your table, so your guests can play.
Monkeys always seem to be having fun, so be sure to enjoy this delightful theme shower.
