Joe was turning four last November so I wanted to throw him a monster themed birthday surprise that he had never seen before. Which was it? Well it was a homemade monster party, where everything had to look scary; obviously monsters are not god looking. I called out for some of his close friends and asked them to give some of the summer ideas to make the monster them look amazing and off course paid them little tips to keep it a secret from him. I decided to limit the number of guests to ten since my budget was also constrained.
My initial monster party idea on decoration was to congregate all the guests in one place, then suddenly switch of the lights and turn on scary colors to maintain the monster theme. This was something I started planning early so already had purchased some fun suckers and candy that were on clearance from Halloween.
Since my budget for the birthday party ideas was not meant to be too high, I decided to make the cake and decorate it for myself. While walking in the supermarket, I happened to stumble on candies that took the shape of goodly eyes. These were perfect for the theme. I decided to incorporate them on the cupcakes to give a scary look as kids were savoring them. As I made the cakes, I also decorated them with Wilton blue and green frosting. Every other thing or delicacy had to have spongy and goodly eyes in order to give that monster look.
Alongside the goodly eyes in every delicacy, we decided to have drinks and give our gusts coiled up straws for sipping. Everything had to have small and huge goodly eyes slued on so my idea to develop this was to visit the Halloween monster party clearance store to get all the candies that gave a monster appurtenance. I decided to buy a huge pizza from the nearest wall mart and with which had stuck hundreds of minute goodly eyes to make it fun when a kid plucked it from the pizza and munched deliciously. My husband, Joe’s dad was busy carving the watermelons to give them a monster look with jagged teeth and bloodshot eyes.
Games and activities
Can you think of any birthday party ideas and games that monsters play during their free time? Well, hide and seek it was. With Joe’s friend dresses in Halloween masks, I decided to switch of the lights then rearrange the furniture to create some hiding space for the game. They played and anyone who emerged the winner would be crowned the monster king.
One more game that we played includes the s toothpick das, where the kids would run to the melon monster and pluck the biggest chunk.
After singing the happy birthday song to my little monster, I started packing up some gift packs with which I included monster bath duckier, stickers, little poppers, monster tattoos, color books, and bouncy balls for the kids. The kids were more than excited to leave the monster themed birthday place after all that fun filled activity.
