Sierra's 5th Birthday

Jennifer W By Jennifer W  in Birthday


Party Recap

I was asked to come up with some party decor for my little cousin, Sierra's 5th birthday party, she wanted a Monster High Birthday Party!
If your kiddo is obsessed with Monster High then you know how difficult it is to find affordable MH party decor.
Since my daughter LOVES Monster High as well, I knew this would be a great party for me to help with:)

I choose the colors hot pink, turquoise, bright green, and zebra print. I used the Monster High School play set my daughter got for Christmas to hold all the cupcakes, and all my daughter's dolls, and Sierra's dolls for decorations.

Toys always make great decor!

I made pom poms in all the colors to hang above the tables, and a tulle wreath, wrapped it with hot pink skull ribbon, and added a hanging number 5 in zebra print scrap book paper.

The tables were covered with colored plastic table cloths, and a coordinating plastic table cloth runner. I also used a heart paper punch to cut out printed colored paper hearts, and scattered them on the tables.

Using my Cricut cutter, cute scrap book paper I found at Hobby Lobby in the party colors, my handy dandy printer, and ribbon I was able to make an adorable Happy Birthday banner, name banner, and cupcake toppers. It turned out so stinking cute!!

    I just did typical goody bags stuffed with candy, bracelets, glitter putty, glow necklace, bubbles, some vampire teeth, and monster high stickers I found at Walmart. The kids play with that stuff for like 2 seconds, then it's on the floor or in the trash lol. Keep it simple! Search the dollar sections at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Target, and Walmart:) The last time I went to Michaels all the Monster High stuff was 75-90% off! Hope that helps!

    Do you have instructions on how to make your decorations that you might be able to email me? I'm trying to figure out how to do a Monster High party for my soon to be 5yr old and haven't been working much since I'm still going through surgeries for Breast Cancer so I'm trying to do this without spending SO much. If I can do alot of it myself and spend where I can't do myself then that's better. Any help regarding ideas would be great.
