I love Halloween, but when I'm planning a party for my kids I typically gravitate toward the cute and colorful ideas, opposed to the spooky and creepy. This party is not only super cute and fun, it's simple to plan and host, too.
I started by creating a focal point for my sweet treats. I painted Chinet® Classic White™ dinner plates with bright colored paint. Once the paint was dry I added giant googly eyes to some of the plates. I used striped paper straws and paper to create floating eyeballs on some of the others. I used these silly monster eyes and a tassel banner to create a colorful and fun backdrop for our sweets table.
A table with a black and white striped tablecloth is the perfect spot to display all of your sweet monster-themed treats. I purchased lots of store-bought goodies and dressed them up to fit with our silly monster party theme. I added lime green icing and candy eyes to brownie bites and gummy eyes to cupcakes for some quick and easy treats. Don't forget to make sure you have plenty of Chinet Classic White appetizer and dessert plates on hand for your little monsters to put their treats on.
I used Chinet® Cut Crystal® stemless wine glasses to make the cutest monster containers for all of our party essentials. I love being able to transform common items I usually have around the house into extraordinary party crafts, and I couldn't have been more thrilled with how these monster cups turned out. I filled the painted cups with Chinet Classic White all occasion napkins, Chinet Cut Crystal cutlery, candy and party horns.
When I'm planning a kids’ party I always like to have lots of fun activities to keep them busy. The kids could take their turn trying to feed the hungry monster at our Halloween monster bean bag toss, or they could channel their inner artist and build their own monster mask.
This fun, family-friendly monster party is full of bold colors, yummy treats and lots of extraordinary memories. With just a few supplies and sweet treats, you can host a monster-sized party and unleash wickedly good fun this Halloween!
