I recently showed you a fantastic Simpsons themed party from Partyspot.com. Well I've got another fabulous shindig to show you ! This adorable monkey themed Bat MItzvah was planned by Abigail Kirsch. Take a look at some of the clever details!
I love the choice of color for this event! What 13 year old girl doesn't love hot pink and orange?
Multi-colored drink charms in red. blue, and green hung on the rims of wineglasses.
Every chair was accented with a neon toy monkey.
I love the pop of color in such a simple way: colorful paper shreds in lucite boxes!
Every guest went home with pink and white Paul Frank monkey printed socks!
Well readers, I hope that you enjoyed and were inspired by the photos from this event! Party Spot has much more where this came from!

I don't know how many of you are Sex and The City fans out there...but I am a BIG ONE! I didn't actually start watching the series until it was already over, I had to catch up with DVD. BUT THEN....I fell in LOVE! The series is so clever ( probably because Carrie Bradshaw is a writer) and fashionable. Now the movie, don't get me wrong was really good. HOWEVER, it was nothing in comparison to the series. I have big curiosities about the sequel, and of course since I had a party for the premiere of the original Sex and the City Movie, I thought I might have a sequel party too! The official premiere date for the sequel is May 28th, 2010 , and so naturally that will also be the date of my Sex and The City Party The Sequel! Check back for theme development, and if YOU have any ideas please feel free to share!

Here we are! Part 2!
Flower pens fit into 5 fun Ikea vases! (.25 cents each)
We hand wrote the bride and groom to-be's full names on the notepad favors before the party for the "How many names can you make out of their names" game.
Food table and drink station.
The food table was overflowing with goodies!
colorful cupcakes, fruit cabobs, and veggies....oh my!
Boxed lunches were set on the back side of the food table....ready to serve!
A beverage dispenser held lemonade, and two beverage tubs held bottled sodas.

As I was imagining the whole food set-up for this shower, I envisioned boxed lunches. I wasn't sure yet what would go in them , but we needed a way to keep food costs down without sacrificing style or quality. Several ladies were going to arrive hungry , so I knew I had to rise to the occasion. Jenny and I ( the hostess ) decided to order several $5.00 foot-long sandwiches from Subway, we cut them into quarters, speared them with heart picks (Martha Stewart, Walmart) added chips, tied up with yarn , a napkin, and a bride/groom pick and BOOM! Adorable boxed lunches!...Ready to serve!
Boxed lunches stacked neatly on the food table.
I found the cutest bride and groom picks at Plumparty.com to decorate the top of each box.
Each row was labeled with the kind of sandwich in each boxed lunch so that guests could choose.
I folded a colorful napkin, and tied up a pick with blue and green yarn.
Here's what the inside of each one looked like.

The bride has to have a special seat to sit in while she opens her gifts!

I never thought I would use crepe paper bells for a party, but here I am ! I think it turned out great! Fabric ribbon makes it more modern.
