If your child loves the friendly monsters from Sesame Street or the fun characters from Monsters, Inc., one cute theme for an important birthday could be a monster party. This unique party style can be used for your child’s first birthday or another young age. Most monster parties incorporate many different primary colors, so you can have a lot of fun with your décor and food offerings. A great party always starts off with unique monster birthday invitations that you personalize with your event’s date and time.
This type of party should not use décor or elements that could scare young children. Instead, focus on the fun and friendly aspects of everyone’s favorite monsters. This type of party could be perfect at your home or in your backyard, so there’s no need to rent a special venue to match the theme. Choose a few colors to incorporate in your décor, and purchase streamers and tissue paper balls to hang up in the main party space. One color that could work great for this theme is green, and you could even match your birthday invitations in this shade. Cut out white poster board in the shape of teeth to give everything a monster look. You can also use googly eyes throughout your decorating scheme to make it even more like a monster.
Then, it’s time to think about the food. A bowl of green punch could be the perfect way to get kids excited about some monster treats. A cake baked in the shape of a one-eyed monster combines the perfect mix of fun and silliness in this party theme. Some other possibilities include green deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket, cheese balls, fruit salad and more. Customize your favor bags by dressing up plain colored gift bags with funny teeth or monster eyes. Design your own favor stickers to attach for an easy way to thank your guests for coming.
