Kara's Party Ideas Friendly Monster 3rd Birthday Party Planning Ideas

This incredibly cute FRIENDLY MONSTER BASH THIRD BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Rachel Scott of RV Parties! I’m dying at all the adorable details! Everything just screams perfection! WHAT a darling party with so many fabulous ideas!

Rachel said this about planning the party-

“This 3rd birthday party was monstrously-fun to style! Our “little monster” birthday boy is energetic and happy so our monsters had to be too! From the bright and happy monster decorations to the coloring wall–it certainly was a party tailored for toddlers that was cheerful and fun!

Kiddos snacked on one-eyed monster cruffle pops, bright sprinkled chocolate covered pretzels, cupcakes and a three-tiered cake by Got What It Cakes–specially customized in the party’s theme and adorned with fondant monsters. The birthday boy ate his confections on a custom printed plate by RV Parties in the monster party pattern.

Coordinating fabric was printed in the party design and used to make a number “3” birthday shirt and runners for the tables. Monster silhouettes popped up throughout the party–as confetti on the table, framed pictures on the wall and garland in the doorways. Googly eyes were a quick and easy way to bring additional elements into the party theme — and they’re so fun, who could resist putting them on everything!?

Our favorite part was the large-scale wall decor. The backdrop for the dessert table was a 3’x4′ vinyl banner which now decorates the birthday boy’s room! All the little monsters loved grabbing washable crayons from the coloring table to doodle on the coloring walls.

Favors included monsters knitted with hand dyed yarn, gumballs and a jar of coordinating jelly beans–as well as a family picture in the monster photo booth. And we loved the other elements brightening the favor table–a yarn wrapped H and a cute monster gumball machine!”

    I love this! I have been planning a monster party for my son, and was using these exact colors. I was wondering about the fabric. I saw you got it at Spoonflower, but was wondering if it is a design I can buy. If so, what is the name of it? Also, I cannot seem to find the personalized plate at RV Parties. Is there a way I can buy one of those? Thanks!

    What did you use to hold the crayons together? Is it string?
