Brooke and Matt's Monster Bash, A Joint Birthday Party

We have 2 March birthdays, and this year it was a great fit to have a joint Monster Bash for Brooke and  Matt.  Brooke loves Yo Gabba Gabba and Matthew wanted monsters!  Find all the inspiration on my Pinterest board.  There are tons of talented mommies out there that inspired me and this is the end result.   The goal is to transform the house or space so the children recognize it is a special day for them.  Transforming the space doesn't have to cost a lot of money, just some prep-time, and plan ahead.  I usually purchase a pad of scrapbook paper when they are 50% off and use it for all the paper decorations.  The folded pinwheel circles, drink box wraps, food label tents... everything and it costs $10.00 at the most! I always have Wilton candy melts and gel food colors on hand, as well as tons of cake tips and icing bags.  
Our dessert table.

I use fabric that I find at the thrift shop for my table cloths.  They end up costing between $2 and $3 for 3-4 yards of fabric.  You can't beat that!

At the end of the summer season, these  pinwheels were 80-90% off at Hobby Lobby, and they are great for any party!  When they are in the yard... our friends and neighbors know we are celebrating some one special!

The Wilton monster eyes were perfect for everything and purchased them at Wal-Mart for around $3.00.

This was originally a cowboy hat on a Wanted sign... can you tell? it was one of our  signs for Joe's Cowboy party.  We recycled it for Monsters!

These cupcakes were super easy to make.

so easy to make and create a great impact, we use and re-use these for everyone's party.

Matthew's birthday cake... love that grass tip.

these were inspired by And Everything Sweet and was submitted to Kara's Party ideas.

Here are my 2 monsters!
manipulated this and emailed the invites to friends and family.  Perfect for the Gabba/ Monster party!
