Party Recap

My daughter loves reading the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine. She had requested a "Goosebumps" theme Sleepover Birthday Party.
This theme proved to be a bit difficult as there is next to no merchandise to be found in this theme for birthday parties. So I had to get my creative cap on and this is what I came up with.
I came across the perfect Goosebumps book titled "The Birthday Party of No Return" (which immediately became the name of her party). I purchased this book and tied her invitation to the book and this is what was mailed to her guests as the invitation.
As for the decorations, I pulled out my Halloween decor and I printed out a bunch of pictures of different "Goosebumps" books and put them in clear picture frames and set them around the house.
Plates, Cups & Napkins:
In keeping in the theme of the Goosbumps colors, I purchased solid colored plates, cups and napkins in the Lime Green & Purple.
We served the basic "cook out" food. Hamburgers & Hot Dogs but I also came across a Goosebump book titled "Say Cheese & Die" which featured two skeletons grilling hamburgers and hot dogs on the front of the book. So I printed this out and put this in a frame and displayed it on the food table.
I had Publix make her cake and cupcakes and requested that they of course be in Lime Green & Purple. I made the cupcake sticks to customize the cake and cupcakes to fit into the theme.
Candy Bar:
Candy Bar items included Vampire Teeth Candy, Slime Gum Balls, Gummy Worms, Eye Ball Gum Balls, Skull Suckers, Lime Green, Purple & Yellow Candy Necklaces (which I found under the Mari Gras selection, but the colors were perfect our party as well) all was ordered from Oriental Trading.
Included a waterslide, which we named "the waterslide of doom" and the girls watched a series of Goosebumps movies and ate popcorn that evening.
Thank-You Cards:
The next morning, I took a picture of the girls and had a border and slime inserted and this is what I mailed out as thank you cards.

    Hi Athena, I hope that some of these ideas you will find useful for your daughter's party! I tried to keep my party recap short but well...you see that didn't happen. :) I wanted to make sure I listed on the details of the party. Let me know if you have any questions on anything maybe I left out. Hope your daughter has a Happy Happy Birthday!
