As you can see the incredible balloons, backdrop, florals and table setting work together to create a stunning setup! We love the hot pink contrasted with the black and white:





We love this gorgeous Zebra cake with a touch of a flamingo incorporated on it as well:

Such an elegant cake and all the desserts look AMAZING and the toppers are beautiful:








This baby shower table setting is so elegant and sophisticated with its layering and custom illustration:




The amazing custom baby shower illustration was also part of the backdrop:


Absolutely love the effect of the balloons coming out of the bath like bubbles:



The deep colours of the florals add the perfect pops of pink throughout this baby shower party:


The fog bubbles created a gorgeous effect and made for beautiful photos:

Monster High party theme

This is a popular theme for older girls at the moment and to be honest – being a mum to 2 very young girls – I am out of the loop when it comes to this theme however I have done my best to find some ideas for any of you planning for this theme.

Now just some tips for when planning a licensed character themed party – it is important to NOT buy every single party item in that theme

Mix a few themed balloons with some neutral lanterns. Or pick up on some of the designs/pattern such as (in this case) bows, zebra print, argyle print, skulls – and use those prints in your decor.

If you have all themed items for plates,cups, tablecloth, party favour bags, balloons etc it will look like the character just exploded all over your living room!

By just picking a few items to be themed and the rest more neutral/plain, the themed items actually stand out more and look better. For example – if you are using Monster High plates, then use them with plain coloured napkins. Use a Monster High tablecloth with plain plates and cups etc



A few different invitations/printables for this theme. However if none of them appeal to the look you want, you can contact the businesses in the Customised Invitations & Party Printables category on the children’s party directory who would be able to custom design something for you.

This first design is great for a more subtle look:


Monster High invitation with matching printables available – Yummy Paper


Monster High printables – Pinkadot Shop



Monster High printables – Lil Faces Printables


Monster High beach party invitation – Art Depot 9 (ETSY)



Monster High invitation – Lush Couture Paperie




For decorations I’ve focused the items around hot pink, blue and black and items incorporating zebra prints, bows and skulls to choose from.

If you’re looking for more custom made items to match this theme or items such as garlands, pom poms, toppers etc –  have a browse through the Handmade & Custom Decor category on the children’s party directory.

This is a great printable to use to create your own bow garland:

As I mentioned before – mix character based supplies with neutral supplies. So if you are using Monster High plates use plain napkins. Or use a Monster High tablecloth with plain plates etc.
