This magnificent TICKLE MONSTER SECOND BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties.
This fun party is based on the children’s book “Tickle Monster”. I love that it’s a perfect theme for both girls and boys alike.
My favorite Tickle Monster party ideas and elements in this second birthday soiree are:
- The chevron table cover used as a banner with the tickle monster gloves
- The cute straws with “laughs” and “giggle” labels tied on with ribbon
- The chocolate covered marshmallows
- The blue and white polka dot ribbon used throughout the party
- The hanging paper pom poms
- and MORE!
Items used in this Tickle Monster party available in Kara’s Party Ideas Shop:
- Plastic Wine Cups
- Mini Cocktail Bowls
- Striped Paper Straws
- Paper Pom Poms
- Paper Honeycomb Flowers
TICKLE MONSTER PARTY DETAILS:
This is what Valerie said about planning the party-
“I was asked to style a second birthday party for a friend of a friend. Two is such a fun birthday age. It’s sort of the entrance into toddlerhood and the first birthday that a child might have an affinity with a character theme.
The family’s favorite bedtime story is “Tickle Monster” written by Josie Bissett. The birthday girl, Reese, asks for it to be read almost nightly. We were certain little Reese would be excited about this celebration and the bold and vibrant color scheme seemed a perfect fit for this not-so-girly little lady.
If you have read this book, you can see why it is this family’s favorite bedtime story. It’s ADORABLE. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the storyline is precious. When styling this party, we played up on the traditional “Tickle Monster” color scheme, but added interest with fun and bold prints. Chevron, polka dots and stripes don’t always work together, but for this theme they were perfect.
The party was held during the late morning hours, so we offered a lovely brunch spread catered by one of their local bakeries. Chocolate covered marshmallows and a little candy selection added some festive touches to our feature table.
Children were offered bundles of crayons and Tickle Monster coloring pages and were able to “Tickle their Inner Artist”. Adults mingled and enjoyed mimosas and coffee while the kids played around them. It was a delightful birthday for a super sweet little girl.”
