My little man turned one on April 12th 🙁 oh how fast time flys! Â I thought a Monster themed party would be super cute! Â I got a ton of ideas off of interest, it really is such a great place to pin ideas and keep them organized. Â If I didn’t have it I probably would have forgotten why I saved the link. Â I made just about everything at the party. Â Someone made the cakes for me-which were SOOOOOO good, we’ve had them at all of my daughters birthday, if you are local and want her information let me know. Â She’s SO talented! Â My best friend also my son’s Godmother made his birthday sign, she did awesome on it! Â I made tissue paper balls for the first time, I read an article that said it would take an hour to make one, they looked really easy to make and they were. Â They didn’t take long at all and they aren’t expensive either! Â I saw a pin that had ribbon put on the highchair, I was going to do that, but then I had ALLLLLL this fabric for my son’s monthly pictures that was not being used for anything so I decided to cut and rip those up, instead of spending money on ribbon. Â It was SO easy! Â I had so much of it (i had about 1 yard for each color-with 4 colors) and it made the banner for the highchair and for the fireplace and I still had a bunch left over. Â I just put a piece of fabric on the back of his highchair to cover up the rainforest themed seat. Â I did adopt a monster for favors, it’s just a play dough container with construction paper wrapped around. Â I had SO many wiggly eyes that I decided to use them on there as well. Â The outfit-pants and monster picture-I got from a vendor on Etsy. Â He was not a happy baby on the day of his party, as you’ll be able to tell. Â He was VERY intrigued by the balloons though, that’s all he wanted the whole day. Â I wanted to keep all the food as monster themed. Â I think one of my favorite things were the orange and blue cups with the eyes on them and then letting everyone draw a face on them. Â I had seen someone put eyes on cups from another blog and I thought it’d be cute to have people make a face.
Ok I’ve bored you enough, I’ll post another blog with the links where I found the ideas for things and recipes for the food if you want them.
I LOVED these little monster boxes, found again on pinterest. Â Spray painting them was easy, I tried to spray paint the dots…yeah doesn’t work-as you can see on the orange one-so I just bought sticker dots at walmart and put them on, my 3 year old helped as well.
see the orange one…spray paint dots = no go.
now this is what I call a successful party!
If anyone local is interested in all the leftover stuff, plates, napkins, cups, decorations, I have it all and am happy to sell it all to you.
