Sock Monkey 1st Birthday Party & Cake Smash

My nephew Fischer turned a year old on August 12th.  His mom asked me to help plan his birthday party back in May and we decided to do a sock monkey birthday party.  Fischer was the cutest sock monkey you ever did see!
I designed and printed the invitations which is always something that I love to do.  They turned out so cute and everyone that got one loved it! 
Last Saturday we did his cake smash pictures.  My mom made his smash cake and at first he wasn't too sure what to think.  But he definitely had a great time with free reign on his cake.   
He even employed the help of a spoon.  He didn't let that spoon go for a long time.  Isn't he adorable? 
My sister-in-law found this adorable chalkboard on Etsy and was willing to pay big bucks for it.  I told her I could design it for her for free and it turned out perfect.  We had it printed at Walgreens on board.  This will be so fun to look back on over the years. 
I made this banner and my SIL added the pictures to it.  It was so cute hanging above the door to the patio.  My little sock monkey is just too sweet! 
These chalkboard picks are from Michaels and then I added felt monkeys from World Market to the top.  It was quite the feast of fried chicken, rolls, macaroni salad, taco salad, baked beans, hashbrown casserole, chips and fruit.   
My mom made his birthday cake as well.  It turned out so cute.  There were also cupcakes and of course everyone wanted one of each! 
Of course Fischer got spoiled and got lots of fun presents.  He wanted to play with each present that he opened as soon as he opened it.  This little monkey is definitely loved! 
I can't believe how fast the last year has gone by or how much I love my nephew. I have a hole in my heart that he has definitely filled in a little.  Happy 1st Birthday Fischer!  Auntie loves you soooooooooo much!
