An Event Planner in the Future?

Oh my gosh!  For the first time in quite some time I have been having fun.  You see, Wyatt's one year birthday is coming up next month and I have decided that we will be celebrating his one year with a monkey party. 

Wyatt's one year means a lot to me mainly because it doesn't seem like it has been a full year.  But it also means a lot because all Mommy's go all out for their baby's first birthday.  Though Wyatt passed two days before he was delivered, I consider the day I delivered him to be his birthday.  It was the day he entered into this world.  It is something that Wyatt and I will always share, our birthdays!!!!

Since Brian and I called Wyatt "Our Little Monkey", we decided to do a monkey themed party.  For the past several days I have been searching the Internet looking for monkey decor that I could create myself.  I also wanted to ensure that a lot of the food was monkey related. 

I still have a lot of work ahead of me, which is fine because I am enjoying every minute of it.  The invitations were already sent, so now I just need to get creative. 

I will not post photos of the items that I have made until after the party, but I would like to share with you some of the ideas I have found to use for Wyatt's party.  

Lovin' this banner!!  Of course, I have already made one similar to this for Wyatt's party.  This was project #1.  It only took me three hours, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

These favors are just adorable.  Yes, I will be creating these for all of our nieces and nephews!

Oh yes, inflatable monkeys!!!  We already ordered several.

Aren't they so cute?  Yep, I will be making these little monkeys instead of a cake!

Okay, now let's talk about the menu.  So far I have found recipes for banana pudding, BBQ'd bananas (yes, my thoughts too, but they actually don't sound that bad after reading the recipe), banana smoothies, and monkey balls.  I am also doing banana chips!  Yep, we have officially gone bananas over this party!!!

So, as you can see it's going to be a jungle of a time.  As much as I have been dreading Wyatt's one year birthday, I am actually looking forward to it.  I pray that Wyatt is looking down and that he is pleased with the fact that we are honoring him and that we are having fun doing it.  I am so happy that we decided to do this party for him.  Our little monkey is going to have a monkey bash!!!

Where does the event planner fit in?  Well, I am having so much fun creating this party and working out every little detail that I thought maybe one day in the future event planning would fall into my lap.  How much fun would that be?  Oh, I would love it!

One of the most important tasks of a meeting planner is to formulate and set objectives before selecting the meeting site.
