This little monster party started with darling invitations! See those adorable monsters? They set the tone for the event, and youll see them replicated throughout the styling. I love when there is continuity from start to finish.
One of the things we have come to expect from the amazing parties Carol styles is an impressive dessert table, accompanied by gorgeous balloon arrangements by Johanna Padin from GloboArte.
The focal point of the event was the giant blue fluffy monster backdrop with large eyes and a mouth. Isnt it the perfect scene setter for a monster party? Paired with the monster inspired balloon arrangements which flanked each side of the table, this display was set to impress! Dont you just love the monster accent pillows, too? Carol did not miss a single detail! Colorful printed linens and bright birthday banners brought the table to life and provided a home to some gorgeous desserts. I think the oversized monsters guarding the table are such a cute addition.
Using her go-to dessert specialist, Sugar Bliss by Mari, the dessert table incorporated Carols 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. Its 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 Carols monster printable designs as inspiration for the cake. The detail work is incrediblewhat cute little edible monsters!
In keeping with the monster theme, Carol set up a beverage station with a monster beverage dispenser offering fruit punch and monster embellished water bottles with striped straws. Cups, napkins and monster favor boxes from Oriental Trading completed the look.
Guests dined at colorful tables with fluffy monster head centerpieces. Arent they cute? I love the googly eyes!
A chevron covered table was set up with a cute thank you sign and acted as a favor station. Carol costumed green favor bags in cute monster faces and attached a thank you tag with ribbon. The monster bags were filled with candy, monster cups and plush monster toys from Oriental Trading. The favors sound like the perfect picks for scaring up some more monster fun after the party!
While this party was too cute to scare the pants off of anyone, it definitely impressed the pants off of me! Chalk this up to another great Partylicious party!
