Little Monster First Birthday Party Ideas and Inspiration

Posted on 04 August 2016

This is my second post for my First Birthday Inspiration Series and I seriously wish I could just have a party every weekend for my little ones. I know they take a ton of effort and planning...not to mention money, but who doesn't love a good party?

The Little Monster Theme is one I get asked about alot so I hope you can find some good inspiration from my post, whether you decide to do everything DIY or buy already made decor, there are definitely some very creative ideas below and good vendors as well (I do not get paid to endorse anyone, I carefully select who I recommend based on reviews, referrals from my clients and based on personal experience).

 

Of course I always start with the outfit since that is what I make. :) We have a few really cute options for the Little Monster Theme.

So, of course with any party you will most likely be sending out invitations (unless you are doing it all via email/social media) and these are super cute and simple to do. You can see the post on how to make them here.

The trend lately is to have a main table (dessert table, snack table, gift table whatever one you prefer) and then just deck it out to be the focal point of your party.

I thought the dessert table setup was adorable here and it would be fairly simple to recreate. Find a good local bakery to make your cupcakes and/or cake. The unique part of this table setup is the adorable furry "tablecloth" which is just raw fabric from a local craft store like Joann.com or your local store (my favorite because they always have 40-50% off coupons-just google Joann coupons). You would probably need 2 yards if you were using a standard 6ft. collapsible table as your dessert table. I priced the fabric at Joanne's and it would run about 18.00 for the 2 yards (that is with a 50% off coupon).

I love this idea for the cups and found it on pinterest.

Here is another table that is super cute. It is setup as a party favor table. The balloons and streamers behind the table are an inexpensive way to get that pop of color and wow factor.

Here are some ideas for favors, decor and other Little Monster Party Decorations and Supplies.

For plates and napkins you could always get solid bight colors as those are less expensive but if you want over the top here are some cute ones. They sell the plates and napkins outside of the pack as well.

    I LOVE this theme! The cake is too adorable. We almost chose to go with little monsters for our sons first birthday party, but ended up going with something else. I may have to keep this in mind for his 2nd birthday! ?
