Monster Birthday Party Ideas
Move over scary monsters and welcome all cute and silly monsters. This party is full of delightful monsters, a bright color scheme, and font fonts!
Picking a color scheme is one of my favorite parts of party planning and I had so much fun with this blue, red, mint, and yellow color palette, which is carried out throughout the decor and printables.
We held the party under our deck and I wasn’t able to get photos taken until right before the party when the sun was in full force, hence the lines showing up in the photo.
A large, DIY party sign was so fun to make and is an inexpensive way to incorporate the theme into the backdrop.
I used a cutting machine to cut out individual letters. I actually first printed the letters on white cardstock as I wanted to get the colors exactly matched to the printables but you could use colored cardstock instead. I also cut out Owen’s name in a fun font! I believe I used cardstock for this purpose rather than printing, as the thin letters would have.
Then I added a printable of a cute blue one-eyed monster with a party hat.
Printables do a lot of the heavy lifting to add elements of the theme into the party decor, like this party sign.
Monster Birthday Party Menu
If you’ve been around here for a while then you know I like to make the party menu as simple as possible.
For me, I rather focus my attention on decorating, though I still want to be sure that whatever I’m serving is tasty. This usually means catering.
Our local grocery store had a fun slider bar and I figured we’d give it a try. We were able to choose three different burger options and it came with toppings, cheese, condiments, and two sides. We chose fresh fruit and a potato salad.
A cute sign lets guests know all of the possible flavors. We had Burger Mignon, California Turkey, and Ground Chuck.
The burger bar was a ton of fun and so easy to set up.
I like to serve lots of fresh options too, so we had a tomato and cucumber salad and a veggie tray. We also served chips, pasta salad, popcorn, and of course a monster cake!
I love this Monster Munchies sign!
Party tip: Check your local grocer for catering options
Your local grocery store is a great option for affordable catering and often times they will have many different selections and themes to choose from, such as a pizza or pasta bar, Chinese buffet, taco bar, and more.
This Monster Popcorn snack mix was a big hit and was so tasty. We added mini marshmallows, M&Ms, and pretzels.
Once again I didn’t entirely plan out my cake order (Hello ADHD tax! IYKYK!) but thankfully I had seen multiple monster cakes around several local grocers and was able to find one in our color scheme. It was cute and the freshly minted three-year-old loved it so I call that a win!
Monster Birthday Table Setting
For the table, we kept it pretty simple so there was lots of room to squeeze in on our patio table.
For the centerpieces, I took mason jars and filled them with tissue paper. I stuck in the Monster photo props for a super easy and inexpensive decor piece. Unfortunately, the photo props are no longer available from Oriental Trading.
