Monkey Theme Baby Shower Favors

I was helping plan a baby shower for a coworker and her there 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 we’re 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 cadies we're sold by 1/4 pound for about $2.50! I put about an ounce of banana cadies 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
