monster party


i hosted this monster bash a few weeks ago {sorry for the delay in posting}. this party was a halloween party, but you could honestly use this theme for a birthday party at any time of the year!

target had THE cutest monster collection...

and thanks for the inspiration from jamee @ setting the mood! she gave me the faux fur tablecloth idea {fabric purchased at joanne's} and googly eye idea {i placed colorful googly eyes all around the tables for 'monster eyes'}.

here's the invite i made in photoshop... monster frame and stuffed animal {both purchased @ target}...
mini monster toys {found on orientaltrading.com} and monster candy {again, target}...
monster bingo!...
the adorable monster masks were also found on ot {thanks for the assembly mandy!}...
cute monster dish {target}...

i used a trick or treat monster bag to cover one of my pillows....
another cute monster dish {monster toys found on ot}...


monster match and monster toss...
these suckers were a huge hit {again, oriental trading}...

look how cute these monster eggs are! {monster teeth also pictured}...
monster paper goods...
pin the eye on the monster...
i LOVE these monster snow globes {i had a large one and a mini one out}...
i made these monster mouths out of apples and slivered almonds!...

green caramel popcorn {made with green jello!}...
monster eyeballs... i had a monster craft out for everyone to make...



i used marshmallows and white chocolate melts for the monster cupcakes {and attached a cut up black boa to each level of the cupcake stand}...
here's what i did with the other monster trick or treat bag...covered a box :).



monster rice crispy balls...
guess what the tablecloth is {underneath the fur}...a shower curtain!



here's a picture of one of the monster crafts that everyone made {little monster bags i found on oriental trading}...and a cute little monster party goer :).
i LOVE this sucker stand i found at joanne's!... another one of the assembled monster bags...


root beer with dry ice...
fun was had by all!...

Is there any way I could get a working version of your Dr. Seuss invitation? I am trying to throw together a Dr. Seuss baby shower for my sister in three weeks. Yours are PERFECT! You are so talented!
