A Curious George Birthday Extravaganza

Let’s monkey around! Our newest contributor Jessica @ Live the Fancy Life is back — and it looks like she’s been bitten by the party planning bug! She styled this darling Curious George-themed birthday for her friend’s second birthday — and let me tell you, Jessica is a rock star when it comes to planning an event! – Nicole

Hi ladies! I’m thrilled to be back to share with you this kiddie birthday party I styled for my friend Lisa’s son, Miles — he turned two in August. She wanted a modern chic Curious George themed birthday party with some really fun activities.

A few of her and my favorite details:
  • All of the Curious George Printables
  • Party favors wrapped with ribbon and finished with a cute favor tag
  • The art station for kids included canvases to paint, custom coloring sheets and all kinds of other goodies.
  • Simple cake topper
  • Curious George guest book
  • The yellow table Lisa already owned was great for the desert. We added clear chevron scrapbook paper from Archivers to serve the desserts.

Printables: Shannon Bradshaw with Grace and Guy Paperie.
She was phenomenal to work with. She actually created it custom for us and now sells the package. I can’t say enough good things about working with Shannon.
