Monster High Birthday Party!


Have an October birthday girl? Or does she just love the Monster High characters? Either way, we have some awesome ideas to throw your own fabulously freaky Monster High party!

Decorations: 



You can create fancy chair covers with zebra table runner cut in half for each chair. Adorn each runner with a black and pink boa and print out Monster High skull logos to pin to each boa. 



This awesome sign should hang from your front door to let guests know where the Monster High fun is taking place!




Stick with the black and pink theme for tables and decorations. You can create your own puff balls with black and pink tissue paper and secure to the ceiling. 



Personalize your own birthday signs with your child's name!

Party Food: 




Create the perfect Monster High cakes with your own dolls. Create the dress with cake and icing!




Or create a cake using the colors and zebra pattern and the logo at the top.




Fill a dish with Hershey's kisses in colorful wrappers and label them Cupid's Kisses!



Make your own cupcakes and use Monster High character logos for the tops.



Fill a glass with bright blue kool-aid and label it Lagoona Blue Sea Water




Regular taco salad can be Toralei's Taco Salad for your party.




Dirt pudding made out of chocolate pudding, Oreos and gummy worms are Frankie's Fun Pudding for your guests.




Wrap utensils in colorful napkins and use Halloween plastic vampire teeth to hold the napkins together. 



Party Fun:




Customize your party favors with your daughter's name and age on the label of a body spray and then name the spray, "Cotton Candy Monster Mist"or "Spectra's Spectacular Spray" to keep with the theme. 




Create student ID cards for each guest. Each guest will have her own Monster High character on her card and her name personalized on it as well!




Set up a Claw Painting station for your little monsters and set out plenty of nail files, polish colors and decorating tools.




Use black cardboard coffin shaped boxes to pass out candy or other party favors in. Wrap the boxes in colorful ribbon and adorn with the Monster High logo. 



Create your very own Monster High case like the dolls come in! Each guest can dress up as her favorite and take a polaroid of her in the case for her to take home. 

Invites: 




Here are two examples of ways to send out your own invites to your ghoul-tastic Monster High Party!

Egg-cellent Easter Basket

We have only lived in our neighborhood six months and all of our neighbors have been so awesome from the start.  Within a week of moving in, every one of them had come over to introduce themselves.  They have helped hubby fix our car, given us rain boots when it snowed, and actually smile and wave.  In my previous neighborhood, my neighbor right next door didn't speak to me for about ten years.   We did become friends in the end; her best friend it seemed.  God makes everything beautiful in His time, I guess. 

As a way to bless them, we decided to make each family an Easter basket.  I started saving my egg cartons to use as my "basket".  You can buy a few extra cartons, then dye the eggs or boil them for egg salad so they won't be wasted.  I simply used scrapbook paper and traced the top of the egg carton, then let my girls cut them out.  Yes, I've gotten over my type-A personality tendencies and let jagged edges remain on crafts...EEEKKK!  I'm telling myself it makes the gift more personal and people appreciate that more than perfection....oooohhhkay.  Another option is to actually paint the cartons.



Because I was in a hurry, I just typed up something and printed it out.  Right now I should be packing, but I love you all soooo much that I designed a real pretty one for your to use.  Click here for the free download.  Select the 3.5 x 5 option when printing so the dimension will fit perfectly on the carton.



On the inside I put my favorite, Reese's eggs, and other egg-shaped candy to match with the EGG-cellent words.


I would love to see your creations of this project or other cute Easter crafts you did.  Email me  at partyatgigglebean dot net and you could be featured on our blog.
