A Monster of a Good Time!
posted Jul 18 2013 by Pinata Casa

A new classic cartoon means a new classic party, and we love a classic party! One of the great things about having a party with a character theme is that you can throw this party for any occasion and for any age.  Everyone loves a fun and festive party!

For your modern day monster mash, we encourage you to use your imagination and get as creative as you want to! When creating anything surrounding monsters there is one key rule: the crazier the better! No two monsters are created equal, so get those creative juices flowing.

Colors and Decor

Green, blue, purple, pink, yellow, red, orange, strips, polka dots... you get the idea! Your decorations should be all about bright and fun colors accompanied with crazy patterns. Not sure where to begin? Just start covering your party room in colored crepe paper and balloons and the decorations will take from there.  If there is anything that could be covered with patterned material, like cushion or square table, we suggest you cover it up and easily turn the room from normal to crazy! Anything goes with a monster party.

Monster Goodies... NOM NOM NOM NOM

Fun colors and crazy shapes should be the focal point of the food and drink table. We love the party food ideas by The Party Animal! All of your drinks, snacks, and desserts should be about what fun colors you can use.  We love the idea of adding googly eyes to all of your containers and making everything on the table a monster in some form or fashion. The theme can be easily enhanced at the food table by turning everything in to a monster.  

For bright colored foods, don't feel like you have to overload your table with junk food.  Granny smith apples, strawberries, carrots, and cherry tomatoes are all great examples of healthy foods with rich colors.  If you are looking to get your kids to eat "healthier" snacks and dips, just label the food with a monster-y name. Anything that sounds like it could come from alien planet will be perfect for kids.

And now for the fun!

Like we always say, it's not a party until you add in a pinata! Our monster pinatas are the perfect size for a party and hold 10 lbs. of candies and surprises.  We can even customize your monster if you are looking for something a little more unique.  Just let us know what creations you would like to make and we will work with you to create the best monster we can.  

 

If you are looking for more tame "monster fun", how about having the kids create monsters from their own imagination? Kids LOVE to take home crafts from a party, especially ones that they have worked really hard on.  To help the kids create their own monsters, have a craft table set up full of fun supplies.  Some items we suggest are:

  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Sequins
  • Colored construction paper
  • Feathers
  • String
  • Tape
  • Googly eyes... the more the merrier!
  • Patterned material
  • Fuzzy craft balls
  • Colored pipe cleaners (these come in multiple colors and sizes)
  • Cardboard
  • Empty paper towel rolls
  • Scissors
A local crafts store would be a great place to start when selecting possible supplies.  If there is something in particular that stands to you or your child, get it!  If it looks like a great craft supply to you, the kids will be sure to love it. 

We hope your monster mash is as cooky and crazy as it should be!
