Nature-Inspired Organic Monkey 1st Birthday Party

From the moment my son Keiran first looked at me with his big brown eyes we’ve called him our little monkey. When it was time to decide the theme for his 1st birthday party, it was an obvious choice.

As you may remember, last month we entered a Gingerbread House contest from (’s sister company) and we won. Little did I know that this would lead to them asking me to be a blog contributor on their Ideas blog. This is a HUGE honor considering the amount of traffic this site gets and the other creative bakers/decorators that are already guest blogging for them.  I’m talking about total pros such as Kristan Roland from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen, Melissa Diamond from My Cake School, Glory Albin from Glorious Treats, and Shelly Jaronskyfrom Cookies and Cups. I was excited and nervous all at the same time!

So without further due, here is our first guest post…
