Curious George Birthday Party

Happy Monday! I hope y’all had a great weekend!  We had a crazy busy, but fun one. On Saturday, we celebrated Ridley’s 3rd birthday with a Curious George themed party for family and a few precious friends.   Ridley loves Curious George and I had fun putting together the party.  I didn’t go ‘all out’, but it was just right for our little man!

My dear sister made cupcakes and I bought the little Curious George toppers from ConfettiPrints on Etsy.  Also, the cupcake papers are from Michael’s. I’m impressed with them because they retained their colors even after baking. Woot!

I used the built in book cases in our dining room to set up the food.  Do you like the colorful circle garland?

These are the invitations that we gave out. Cuteness!

Cupcakes, nuts, M&Ms {a ginormous treat at our house!} and homemade pizza!

Grapes and broccoli/carrots with homemade ranch dressing.

Yummo!

Adorable Curious George and Banana cups from The Pink Zebra Bowtique and red and white paper straws from Garnish. My, oh my, how I LOVE the straws!!

I toasted bread, spread it with peanut butter, cut in 4ths and then topped the toast with banana slices.

I decorated the table with Curious George paraphernalia, finger foods and party favors {bouncy balls, punch balloons and party blow-thingys}.

The birthday boy!  How in the world is he THREE?!

We loved monkeying around to celebrate! :)

Do you have little people who love Curious George?

  1. Okay this party seriously puts all my attempts at coolness to shame. I would have loved a party like this for even my 30th birthday! I have to ask where did you get that lamp?

    Very nicely done – a great balance of healthy snacks and favorites. I’m assuming part of the kids “goodie bag” was to keep the cups? Brilliant!

    My youngest is turning 4 in a few weeks and you have totally given me some inspiration to make a really fun party for him :)

    I did Curious George for my son’s 1st birthday (he turned 3 this past September so he and Ridley are pretty close to the same age). He wasn’t “into” Curious George, but I really liked it and loved that it was “vintage”. Henceforth he has chosen his birthday themes…not vintage. :) I’m getting ready to do my daughter’s 1st birthday in Raggedy Ann, decided to keep with the vintage 1st birthday themes. :) Your party was absolutely aDoRabLe!!!!

  3. Super cute! And where DOES the time go??? Mine will be 7 this year…!

  4. So cute! You just proved that you can throw a great party without breaking the bank and going “all out”! I think less is more when it comes to kids parties and you had the perfect amount of food a precious decor! Thanks for sharing!

  21. Hi! I happened upon your blog while googling Curious George Party Ideas. I am throwing a George party for my 2 year old. I had surgery 2 weeks ago, and am SERIOUSLY behind on my party planning! I got the George invites out, and thats about it! Haha. I really love the garland you had on the table. How did you make them?

    • Hey Leslie! I’m actually doing a tutorial next week for the garland, but it was super easy. I cut various circles from felt and hot glued them to ribbon. Easy peasy! :) I hope you are feeling better from your surgery!

  22. How cute!! Happy Birthday to the little one!!

  30. Hi Myra-

    My oldest used to love Curious George and would have loved a CG Party. Brings back lots of memories. Looks like your birthday boy loved it. The peanut butter and banana sandwiches would be a bit hit in my house.

  31. I found you on Tater Tots and Jello and I would love it if you would share this with our readers too for Fun Stuff Fridays! http://www.toysinthedryer.com/2012/02/14-days-of-valentines-fun-stuff-fridays_10.html

  32. What a wonderful job you did! It looks like such a fun party. Oh, and the swirly candles are great!

  33. Jennifer Kinney says:

    I am throwing my 2 year old twin sons a George themed party in less than 2 weeks. I LOVE those cups. DO you think it’s possible to order them from Pink Zebra and have them shipped to Michigan or do you know of the rand name or other places that might sell them online?

    Thanks for all the great ideas!

  34. pam sladek says:

    I love those cupcake topers but it seems like they are no longer on etsy or I just can’t find them, can you help.

    My almost 2 year old LOVES Curious George and your ideas are great!

    Thanks

  35. Elisabeth C. says:

    I’d like to order tumblers, but I can’t figure out how to order them from the company’s fb page. Can you advise me?

  36. Kara Garnett says:

    I know this might be a dumb question but what kind of beverage dispenser is that? Iam not sure if you have lemonade in it or what but I love it.
