My sweet friend, Kate Petronis of And Everything Sweet has been at it again! This creative mama KNOWS how to throw a party! Kate hosted 23 kids, (yes 23!!), on Halloween day for a fun little Monster Bash using Amanda's Parties To Go's MONSTER BASH PRINTABLES on the backdrop, dessert table and throughout the party.
I was so excited to finally reveal the photos once they ran on Kara's Party Ideas over the weekend. I hope you all love this one as much as I do.... there are so many great ideas from the dessert table and backdrop to all of the party games. Kate will share a few details after the photos.
On Halloween we had a monster bash to kick off the trick or treat festivities. It was such a fun time! I absolutely love Halloween...the costumes, the candy, the weather...its a perfect occasion for a party. The kids were precious in their costumes as they played around the yard, did carnival games, adopted pet monsters, and decorated their own cupcakes.
I got the make your own monster cupcake idea from Snowy Bliss. Anj had the cutest monster party for her son's 2nd birthday and they made monster cupcakes. Such a great idea!!!
The dinner tables were decorated with pumpkin buckets purchased at Walmart. $1 piece...can't beat that! To make things easier on me I packed a sandwich, grapes, juice box and cheese puffs in each bucket so that I wouldn't have to worry about making dinner during the party. I used some monster pieces from the printable set to jazz up the juice boxes. I don't what it is about me but I just can't serve up undecorated juice boxes. (Weirdo)
Before we had dinner the kids went on a monster hunt to adopt a monster. I told them that there was a group of nice monsters that didn't fit in with the mean monsters. They were misfits and weren't allowed to live with the mean monsters. It was their job to find the nice monsters, adopt them and give them a nice home where they will fit in.
I hid numbers inside of easter eggs and had the kids find one egg. Each bag was marked with a number and had a monster inside. If the number inside your egg matched the number on the bag the monster was yours!!!
Here they are...and Yes, I made them all. All 23 of them. OMG. NEVER again. LOL. It was a big hit. The kids were so excited to get their monsters so it was totally worth it.
After dinner it was dessert time!! Actually, every minute of Halloween night is dessert time so we'll call this monster making/eating time.
What do you do with 23 kids??? Make some carnival type games to keep them busy.
Bottle toss....Pop the monster! (inside each balloon was a little prize), Feed the monster (bean bag toss) and knock down the cans.
Instead of doing individual prizes for each game I put together a prize bag. If you played every game you got a prize bag full of fun Halloween goodies.
Thank you, Kate! I'm in AWE of your talents and creativity!
