On Sunday (Jan. 2nd), we had over some friends and family for Ryan’s big birthday party… monster-themed for a monster lil boy! It was a lot of fun.… but a ton of work. I’m relieved it’s over, but it’s bittersweet… can’t believe my baby is ONE! I have *so many* pictures from the party, this post is just going to focus on the decorations. I’ll follow up with another that has pictures of Ryan and his cake and presents and all the guests
Monster Cupcakes! In red, blue, yellow and green and decorated with monster faces and toppers. I had them made at a local bakery.
My little monster!
For food we had Monster Toes (pigs in a blanket), Monster Fingers (chicken fingers), Monster Eyes (meatballs), Monster Munch (trail mix), popcorn with monster hands in the bowl, carrots and dip with a carrot monster hand in the dip, chips and dip, punch (with a hand-shaped ice mold) and of course, the cupcakes!
Ryan’s own little corner was decorated and waiting for him for cake smashing time! A birthday crown (he refused to wear) and a safety sheet (plastic tablecloth) to protect our carpet, haha.
Birthday balloons and monster footprints (cut from green poster board) greeted guests by the front door.
Punch (hawaiian punch, 7-up and pineapple juice with orange sherbet) complete with a hand-shaped ice mold! Yellow and green cups were decorated with sticky wiggly eyes of different sizes and straws had cute monster tags on them.
I hung a banner of Ryan’s monthly chair pictures!
And finally… a cute Monster birthday banner that was hung above his highchair.
