Our little monster turned 3! Monster has always been a nickname for our youngest, so it seemed like a perfect theme. I knew I wanted a variety of friendly monsters and bright colors. I LOVE how this party turned out.
Classic white cupcakes are dressed up with printable monster cupcake toppers. I love the big eyeball. haha! I created these fun cupcake stands by covering a box in fur fabric. It added a fun monster feel and a great pop of color.
This cute little monster cake was one of my favorite items of the party. Blue for my son’s favorite color. There are lots of tutorials on pinterest to make these yourself.
One of the things I loved about this theme was all of the cute treats that could be made. Wilton sugar eyeballs in several sizes were added to colored sugar cookies for a silly monster cookie.
Dipped pretzels are a favorite at my parties. I purchase pretzel rods at my grocery store and dip them in melted Wilton’s white candy melts. Then top with sprinkles of your choice. I added them to clear jar with eyeballs to make bright monster hair.
My son requested a party hat last minute. I found a plain blue party hat at my local party store and dressed it up with googly eyeballs, a card stock mouth, and fur accents left over from my boxes.
Isn’t that hat the cutest? Ok maybe the birthday boy adds to the cute factor. 🙂 I found his adorable shirt on etsy from Heather Rogers Designs. It was perfect!
I created a kids party table with simple centerpieces made from my printable party circles in colored containers and monster sticker sheets.
We had an Adopt a Monster table for guests to take home a party favor as they left. My printable monster centerpiece circles created a cute display.
Each favor had a mini plush monster, bubbles with a printable label, and a monster sucker. They were packaged with my printable monster favor tags.
A friend and I created this monster bean bag toss. We used a large card board box and craft paint. Pizza pans and cookie sheets made perfect stencils for our smaller monsters. We used an exacto knife to cut out their mouths. We cut out the horns, teeth, and eyes from card stock to add some extra details. This was such an inexpensive party game and super fun to make.
Around Halloween I found fun monster photo props at Target. My kids always love taking photos with friends using fun props. It has become a regular activity at our parties.
Our monster party was a big hit! I had one happy little boy. I hope you found some fun ideas for your next monster party.
Happy Birthday Little Monster!

Months ago my friend Dara and I made a long drive to Hobby Lobby. It is almost 2 hours from our homes. If you are lucky enough to have ever gone to a Hobby Lobby you know why we went. We found so many fun things. We came across some adorable lemonade decorations. I mentioned to her that I have always wanted to do a lemonade party. It has never happened as my daughter has a December birthday. We decided to have a little lemonade party with 4 sweet friends. What a perfect thing to do on a summer day.
Dara found a great photo of a lemonade stand made from crates on pinterest. She went to work and created the most adorable stand. It was perfect for all of the party decor.
We set up the stand in my backyard. The shelves on the stand gave us places to add lots of lemon accents.
The top of the stand features my printable lemonade banner and these mini poms.
We served adorable pink cupcakes and lemon bars for our party treats. Dress up a store bought cupcake with a polka dot cup and printable lemonade stand cupcake toppers.
A cute chalkboard sign was the perfect frame for a printable lemonade sign. Every lemonade stand needs to tell customers how much each glass costs.
Clear glass milk bottles wrapped in my printable lemonade water bottle labels created the cutest drink containers.
Pink and yellow layered tissue poms added a whimsical soft burst of color along side a jar of lemons.
We created a tea party type atmosphere in my backyard. Dara’s cute Pottery Barn table and pink chairs could not have been more perfect.
A baby pink burlap table runner was layered with a lemon slice cloth napkin to create a sweet tablescape.
Each place setting had a placecard telling the girls where to sit, a fun pink and yellow pinwheel, silverware wrapped in my printable napkin wrap, a jar of sweet lemonade, and a favor box.
Dress up a mason jar with a ribbon, printable cupcake topper, and colored paper straw. I love how just a few little touches create such a custom fancy drink.
Lemon drops in clear boxes were the perfect sweet treat for the girls to take home. Just add a ribbon and printable lemonade favor tag.
The center of the table featured my printable lemonade centerpiece set. A simple yellow metal bucket made it pop. Make the circles double sided so guests can enjoy it from both sides of the table.
The girls were so excited to dig into these yummy treats.
They had fun just being giggly girls. It was so fun watching them enjoy all the little details.
We enjoyed lots of yummy sweet lemonade of course.
And went back to pour even more.
I think they would have spent all day playing at this lemonade stand if they could have.
Their dolls even got in on the fun.
Our lemonade stand party was a big hit. Perfect for a backyard treat with friends, birthday party, or even a lemonade stand in the front yard. How could neighbors resist this cute lemonade stand?
My printable lemonade party decor package is available now in my etsy shop. It comes with all the printable decor you saw above plus a Happy Birthday Banner.
2 matching invitation styles are also available.
