Mauri's Mermaid Celebration


Mauri's mom had a beautiful vision for her daughter's 1st birthday celebration and she bought it beautifully to life in our playroom. Our Grand Monkey Package, combined with her thoughtful touches, made it a sparkling success. 


Happy birthday, Mauri!

Thanks again for celebrating with us!




Vanica's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party

Vanica was turning 4 and loves Disney! Her dad requested a Clubhouse theme. Minnie, Daisy, pinks and purples. We put our graphic designer, Claudia, up to the challenge, while Dad worked with our wonderful baker, Joanna, to design a cake that hit all the right notes. 

He also wanted to make sure that we could accommodate a large, traditional Indian celebration, which we were happy to assure him we do all of the time! TK Photography was on-hand help preserve the memories!

A Fashionista Turns 6

Our original Little Monkey, Ellie, is not such a little monkey anymore! At 6 she's into fashion and she wanted a fashion-fabulous party at her beloved play space.


Never mind that mom is a party planner. Ellie's got the vision and mom just needs to pay for it ;)

First on her list was a photo booth. Our good friends at TK Photography were ready to roll out the pink carpet for her and her friends!

Ellie is also a super-fan of Nili Yelin, The Storybook Mom, who does Storytime at Purple Monkey every week. Very few people can hold the attention of kids ages 4-6 in a playroom full of toys. Needless to say, the kids were rapt. 

We left plenty of unstructured time for the kids to just enjoy the playroom. Believe us, six-year-olds can still play for hours at Purple Monkey. 


And finally it was time for cake and cupcakes, also fully envisioned by the birthday girl herself. Everyone took home either a "beauty bag" or a "buff box," which contained all of the items you could need to prep your fashion-forward self. 

We were thrilled to have an assistant from Chime by SitterCity to help us prep, serve, and take care of any needs that arose during the party, so that the Purple Monkey team could be guests at this party. 

Happy birthday sweet girl. I'm so happy you still love Purple Monkey. We love celebrating you here. 

Nikolay's Turns 4 with Ninja Turtles

Nikolay is serious about his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and his parents wanted a maximum Turtle Power for his fourth birthday celebration. So of course when they asked us if we could make their visision happen, our immediate reaction was, "Cowabunga, Dude!" 

Michelangelo dropped in to hang with the birthday boy and his friends. Of course he felt right at home surrounded by all his buddies, joined him on tableware, balloon columns and and a super-tubular cake. 

Everyone also enjoyed an ice cream bar, the bubble machine, and glitter tattoos, and of course, lots and lots of play!

TK Photography was in to expertly capture every moment. 

Thanks for celebrating with us Nikolay! We loved Turtalizing Purple Monkey for you!
