Inspiration Board: Curious George

A few weeks ago, my dear friend Kari asked me for some ideas for her son Grant's upcoming 4th birthday. Being a fickle three year old, he went back and forth between a Buzz Lightyear party and a Curious George party, but he finally decided on George. 
So, I came up with some ideas to help her out. 
I am sure that Miss Meredith will be helping her with this as well!

There are some super cute Curious George parties out there in party-land, so this was an easy one to put together for her.
