Ooff! It’s been a little while since I last posted. It’s been pretty busy around here, with planning my daughter’s 6th birthday party and trying to figure out this year’s theme.
This year, she (as in me) decided to have a Monster High party and create a Monster High sweet table. Their latest movie Haunted High, is packed full of new characters, a to die for story line and some pretty cool graphics. When the halls of monster high exhibit a strange phenomena, the ghouls get transformed into ghosts to investigate the mystery in the supernatural realm. Enter the ghost powders and detention chains. It totally gave me a really cool idea using Porter Geist’s graffiti from the movie as the backdrop for the sweet table.
I asked a couple of my friends to help me out with the backdrop. I had one friend write out my daughter’s name in graffiti lettering and another create the backdrop infusing a scene from the movie with the name in graffiti. Not only was this a backdrop, but is now hanging on her bedroom as a souvenir and wall decor.
I used the colours from the movie: purple, turquoise and pink. I absolutely love that color combo! They just mesh so nicely together. With that colour palet in mind, I created a tulle table skirt. Just a tip: a lot of your halloween decor might work great with a monster high party. I used my halloween black glitter tree as a pice on the table. Another tip that I learned from watching one of my party mentor’s style her tables, is use the dolls that you have as part of the decor on the table. Tonya from Soiree Event Design never shies away from adding the dolls to her sweet tables. It totally saved me from buying all kinds of things that I probably wouldn’t have used after this party.
Here are some of the yummy desserts and cake I made for the party!
And here’s the party girl as a beautiful 6 year old!
I hope I was able to give you some ideas for your next birthday party!
Until the next sweet table!
