Laura from LAURA’S little PARTY is a fabulous friend and a gifted party on a budget stylist! She can style a party, that, while beautiful, is one almost any mom can replicate or come very close to replicating, and that is what EPM is all about! When I saw her Monster Mash playdate, I KNEW I had to share it on our webpage!
Laura shares all of the details and links below.
Halloween is quickly approaching, and we couldn’t think of a more fun way to celebrate, than with a spooky-cool Monster Mash party! To get the party started, we used printables from the Hostess with the Mostess INK line. They were so vibrant, and lots of fun to work with! I really loved having the printables arrive in the mail, printed & ready to go.
I loved the mix of vibrant oranges, and greens that the set provided. I love to mix patterns & shapes when styling my parties, and everything coordinated so well together!
I found fun ways to incorporate the Monster set by embellishing some of the printables with black festooning, and tulle. I added a mini circle topper & monster banner to our bowl of chocolate drizzled popcorn. I also added square tags & stars to ice cream cups, and thank you tags on cute take home boxes. Napkin wraps also served as a fun way to embellish a small gable box that was perfect for little monsters to carry home.
I also took an image from the printable set, and created iron on transfers. Each guest enjoyed wearing their own special t-shirt, and darling Halloween party crowns!
With the patterned paper, I created mini banners and attached them to the backs of plastic crates. When turned upside down, they make easy & inexpensive seats for your party guests.
During the party, the little guests nibbled on cupcakes, macarons, cookies, chocolate drizzled popcorn, cotton candy, oreo cups, and chocolate caramel apples.
After their bellies were filled, they enjoyed a spooky story around the fireplace.
An outdoor setting is always a fun place to have a party. I set out a fun striped teepee for the guests, and hung a painted chandelier from a tree. It helped add a touch of whimsical to the event.
