{Real Parties} Monster Party!!

For me, choosing a party theme is the easy part.  Then I get started on pulling it all together.  When I was working on the monster theme, it just wasn’t coming together like I had in my mind.  Until I found the black and white chevron fabric!

Since we had 17 kids under the age of 4 (CRAZY!), we decided an early party time would work well with nap times.  While a brunch menu can be challenging for a large party, everything turned out perfect!  We served cereal, french toast sticks, a couple quiches, potato casserole, donuts, fruit, etc.

Drinks include, milk, orange juice,  water, and a green smoothie (recipe courtesy of One Charming Party

Streamers and the numbers 3 and 4 were created using tutorials from

I created a huge wall with the outlines of the monsters from the invite for the kids to color.  It was definitely the hit of the party!  I also created a pin the eye on the monster and had a table for the kids to make their own masks.

Favors are always fun for me to put together.  I like to send guests home with something they will end up using….or eating!  Favor bags included cute monster bags (created loosely from this tutorial
Inside the bags were,  a monster sticker book, a box of crayons, a coloring book I created, pencil, tattoos, sucker, bowl and spoon set.

Adults for sent home with delicious blueberry muffins using this recipe,

Awww!!  Happy Birthday to my little monsters!!

    I am also interested in knowing where you got the monster shag centerpieces! Love them! Thanks!
