Aditi and I went to high school together and reconnected on Facebook. When it came time to plan her daughter Jiya’s 1st birthday, she contacted me to enlist my planning services. She is in the medical field and admitted to not being creative at all and wanted some assistance with her daughter’s monkey themed birthday. They call her daughter “monkey” so choosing the theme was easy. We went with an orange and purple color palette.
The party took place in Aditi’s parents’ home. This is the front courtyard area:
A little pennant was made with a photo of Jiya at every month of her first year:
Guests signed a Curious George book upon entering the party:

Peridot Sweets created an adorable two tiered birthday cake along with a “smash” cake for Jiya for her first cake!
We utilized the backyard for the guest tables. We weren’t fortunate enough with the weather that day so some of the guests chose to stay inside.
There was a banana split station. Wasn’t that appropriate?
I love this high chair sign that read “I am 1″.
Isn’t Jiya so beautiful in her sari and gold jewelry?
