A handmade monster themed birthday party!

Kids have always had a love/hate relationship with monsters. As an adult, I find that I have a love/hate relationship with birthdays!  Don't let the stress of planning the perfect birthday party get under your skin.  A monster theme works for girls or boys, and is appropriate for first birthdays and sweet sixteens alike!  Adding a touch of scary will add just the right amount of excitement to your party :)

Start by sending the perfect invitations.  I love these gender neutral ones from Pink Pickle Studios, where you can also get bag toppers and cute stickers to match!

Don't forget to crown the birthday queen or king!  Those Greathouse Women can also make custom birthday crowns with enough notice...

Dress the part with this shirt from The  Rocking Pony.

 When your guests depart filled with cake and memories, don't forget to send home a little monster happiness.  We love these soft handmade finger puppets by Wee Knit.

There is much more monstery goodness to be had on Etsy. Enjoy!
