Monkey Business

Sometimes it's nice to just turn it all off...turn off the design, the falutin' aesthetics, throw all decorum aside...and just be ridiculously cheesy. Thanks to the amazing talents of my team, they surprised me with a jungle themed party for my birthday complete with monkey masks, tin foil palm trees and grass skirted tables. At heart, we are a bunch who love a good laugh and we have a LOT of inside jokes at the studio that were extricated for the event.

above: Paper monkeys swung from the chandeliers. If you've ever seen the inside of our Paper Studio, it is usually a confection of pastels and civility. I was duly impressed to see how my crew turned it upside down and transformed it into a party zone complete with a photo corner where we posed for "prom pictures." Thanks again team, for a most hilarious and wonderful birthday celebration!
