Monster Bash

My little guy's 1st birthday party was a monster theme. I thought this up when he was about 3 weeks old and I have been planning and picking stuff up ever since then. I found some killer monster deals after Halloween last year...

The Birthday Boy

Playing in the yard before the party. I made the overalls out of some fabric I picked up at Jo-Ann's.

Monster shoes

The Food

The snack buffet. We had Purple Monster Popcorn, Monster Mix, Cupcakes and Soda.

The smash cake

The Games

We played "Guess My Age"

And "Feed the Monster"

The monster ate cars, shoes, and dolls

The Favors
Goodie bags, fuzzy posters and taffy kabobs

The Decorations

I sewed this flag banner from felt and some of the same monster fabric as his overalls.

The Cake

Happy Birthday Little Monster.

So adorable. We are doing a baseball theme this year, but I think I'm going to have to do a monster party for my little guy next year!
