Today's featured party is from crafty mama Shara, who threw a Little Monsters theme party…
Posted under Birthday Parties, little monsters, parties for girls
When you choose a unique party theme, it’s so much fun to really go all out with it! That’s what my sweet customer Amy did for her daughter Shaylee’s third birthday. She decided on my little monsters theme in hot pink, bright aqua, and bright orange, and she paid attention to every last detail to turn her house into a monster mash!
It’s definitely time to party! : ) The entryway was decorated with polka-dotted balloons, paper lanterns, a personalized printable banner, homemade party poms, streamers, and monster dolls.
The monster dolls are my favorite thing!! Amy made them from felt and they are a perfect replica of the monsters I drew. (I want my own set of these so badly now!)
The paper chains are made from card stock. You can view a tutorial on how to make them at Mini-eco.
The food table was decorated in orange, aqua and pink fabric from JoAnn’s.
Guests had cake, cupcakes, and pink-frosted cookies. To make the cupcakes, Amy took printable cupcake toppers and added them to scalloped paper backings. She thought of every detail – notice how the sprinkles alternate with the color of the toppers so that there’s a little of every color on each cupcake! The cake was made to match the pink monster in the theme – it’s so adorable.
The monster fruit salad was inspired by another fabulous Little Monsters party that I’ve featured. It’s such a fun idea!
Amy served blue Hawaiian Punch and Kool-Aid pink lemonade in monster cups (decorated with googly eyes from JoAnn’s).
The faces on the marshmallow monster pops crack me up!
Each food was labeled with a personalized buffet card, like these mini monster cheesecakes.
Personalized water bottles were on-hand for thirsty little monsters!
At the end of the party, each guest went home with a whole lot of swag: favor buckets filled with goodies and custom cookies tied with favor tags.
The favor buckets (purchased at Michael’s) were filled with little monster plush dolls, monster stickers, monster tattoos, Pixie sticks, monster rubber duckies, Nerds, bead necklaces, cookies, and monster mouths (made from a printable from JW Illustrations). Then, Amy tied a favor tag to each bucket with coordinating orange, aqua and pink ribbon.
SO FUN! Thank you so much for sharing, Amy! Happy birthday to Shaylee!
