Hunter's Monsters - Yellow Monster Birthday Party


Hello Lovelies! So this weekend we had a teeny party for my littlest, Hunter, who turned 3.  By teeny, I mean, H + H, my brother, the hubby, and me.  Uber teeny.   I just want to let you know...a teeny party is no reason to not have decorations.  This was very the first time I strung garland across the entire living room.  It looked great! It instantly felt festive.

The decor was based on Hunter's favorite color - YELLOW and his favorite thing - MONSTERS.
So I made him a little monster.  Who Hunter appropriately named...wait for it..."Monster."



I made him in a few hours, from fabrics I had around the house, and I can post a pattern if you would like. 

Details from the party:

Vintage yellow invitations were sent out to our teeny extended family found at moxie thrift on Etsy
Yummy Delicious Cookies ordered in shades of yellow to match the party
Handmade Monster Cake – recipe for “Best Birthday Cake” from Smitten Kitchen (if there is only one cake you ever make…OH HEAVEN! this is it) with Jell-O brand vanilla pudding filling and cream cheese icing – Ina Garten via Food Network
The eyes stuck on with toothpicks were leftovers from my zombie party. Don’t worry we did NOT eat them.
The cake pennant was made and embroidered by me (see DIY here on Canvas and Canopy)
Little monster cake bells (adapted from Bakerella's Cake Balls) with candy sugar eyes (Bake It Pretty) and gummy worm horns (couldn't find Runts anywhere, I wanted to use the bananas)
All garlands made by yours truly…didn’t see that one coming did ‘ya?



I also made little monster activity sheets and coloring pages for the party.  I will post those soon (right on this post) - I promise.     Free for personal use and you know I always LOVE links back here!
