Little Monster Birthday Party
Little Monster Party Details:
This is what Tya said about styling the party- “I knew exactly what kind of party I wanted to have for my little guy’s 2nd birthday almost as soon as his 1st passed. One of the first things he learned to “say” was to growl like a monster. He thought it was so funny to hear! I wanted to have a little monster party for him, but didn’t want it themed after the Disney themed Monsters. It was actually a lot harder than I expected to find non-Disney-Monster party items, so I ended making it all myself!
When guests arrived, the children were escorted to the side of our yard, to prepare to “become” monsters with our awsome face painters whom I had contacted a few weeks prior and given photos of the invites and types of monster faces I was looking for. They did a fabulous job transforming our little guests into little monsters!
From there, they were free to go enjoy our Little Monster photo booth, complete with props and word signs. It was so much fun watching the kids at that all night and the photos they took were adorable! They loved petting and posing with our life size fuzzy little monsters, that were so easy to make as well!
Our last station allowed them to adopt their own little monster to take home. Since most of our guests were going to be under the age of 10 I wanted it to be an easy (mess free) activity, so I made the monsters and their face accesories a few weeks in advance from brightly colored felt. All they had to do was to pick a blank stuffed monster, pick out eyes or eye, fangs, mouth or horns and then glue them on and let it dry.
From there, our little monsters played and dined on mini monster sliders, and a fun and colorful dessert table of Monster Marshmallow Pops, Orange Dreamsicle Monster-oons (macarons), decorated sugar cookies, Goober dipped pretzel sticks, Chocolate dipped sandwich cookies, Slimer Limer cupcakes and cake pops. I was especially happy with how the cute little monster cake turned out. I accented the cake and the dessert table with little fondant monsters hiding throughout.
One of the things I most loved about this party theme, since it was in June and outside was the opportunity it gave me to incorporate bright bold colors and textures into the decorating of the yard, from paper lanterns strung throughout to the balloons and fur fabric that i wrapped vases for the tables in. Despite it being a very windy and slightly cool day, all the colors still made it look fun and cheery”!
