Banana Baby Shower Favors

Banana Baby Shower Favors

I was helping plan a baby shower for a coworker and her theme was Monkeys, I did some research and found there is very little Monkey baby shower stuff, let alone favors. So I did some brainstorming and went with some primary colors. Chocolate Brown and a lime green went from there.

I Made a quick stop at my Michael's craft store and I found these circular pieces of tulle in white and I was planning to fill them with some green and brown M&M's but they were a little pricey. I was planning to just fill them with blue Jelly Belly’s...then I remembered RUNTS candies and how they have tiny bananas in them.

I looked for them online but all they had was 3 pound bags…so I ran to my local candy store and found the banana candies we're sold by 1/4 pound for about $2.50! I put about an ounce of banana candies in each piece of tulle and tied them with some green and chocolate brown ribbon, finished them off with some simple personalized tags with a Monkey picture (I picked the tags up at Michaels) they have the templates on line from the manufacturer. It was so simple, affordable and easy.


What an adorable favor idea Diana! The banana candies are a great idea. I'm sure your guests went bananas over them! ;) I found a place online that sells it a lot cheaper for those who love this idea.

Some other ideas to use for this theme would be a monkey mix (trail mix or spicy party mix), monkey munch (or muddy buddies mix) or candies to fill a jar. You can also do monkey cookies (a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie mix in a jar) as a fun alternative. Use some cute labels on top of your jars or tie some cute monkey themed favor tags with ribbon. Hope that helps! Thanks again for sharing with us Diana!

Monkeyin Around Baby Shower Theme
by: Kimberly

My baby shower will be the monkeyin' around monkey theme with the colors brown, yellow, and lime green. I also bought the yellow, banana runt candies along with some chocolate covered peanuts and monkey candle favors. I bought monkey figurines to put on my cake. Then, one of my co-workers, will serve a frozen midori sour cocktail which will be served in little, clear cups with labels that say jungle juice. Everything at my party even the food will be brown, yellow, or lime green... I'm excited and can't wait til next Saturday. We're going to have soooo much fun...
