This monster birthday party was also attended by cardboard cut-out monsters who surrounded the dessert table.

The focal point of the event was the giant blue fluffy monster backdrop with large eyes and a mouth.  Isn’t it the perfect scene setter for a monster party?  Paired with the monster-inspired balloon arrangements which stood on each side of the table, this display was set to impress!  Don’t you just love the monster accent pillows, too?  Carol did not miss a single detail!

Using her go-to dessert specialist, Sugar Bliss by Mari, the dessert table incorporated Carol’s favorites.  There were bright monster cookies, marshmallow pops creatively displayed on striped paper straws, chocolate covered “eyeball” Oreos, monster-topped brownies, macarons, plus Nutella and cheesecake tarts.  Beautifully shaped apothecary jars were also filled with sugary delights.  Carol did a great job arranging treat covered trays and mixing in a few pails and art easel displays to add height and interest. I love the printed labels that accompanied each selection.  It’s a great way to help guests choose when there is an abundance of treats!  Joyanna Valentine, at Joyadiel Party Shop, knocked the cake design out of the park!  She used Carol’s monster printable designs as inspiration for the cake.  The detail work is incredible – what cute little edible monsters!
