A couple of years ago we hosted a monster-themed party for H’s 2nd birthday. It was a huge hit and one of my favorite elements of the party was the name banner I made inspired by the characters of Monsters Inc. and Monster’s University.
You can see all of the birthday party details here.
Every since, I’ve been wanting to create an entire Monster alphabet so that anyone who wanted it could pick and choose what letters they wanted to create a customized banner. Well, I’m happy to say I finally finished it.
These letters are of course suggestions, if you have a favorite monster, I can definitely try to make it into whatever letter you would like.
Mix-and-match however you would like, spell out your child’s name or Happy Birthday! Individually they are cute, but mixed together I think they’re truly fun and will set the stage for any little monster’s birthday party.
Although I love to create new items and design party kits, I am by no means a graphic designer. That’s why I decided to team up with some great graphic design friends to create the invitations for the party kits you see in my shop.
The one I have primarily been working with is my friend Sarah Vendittelli. You can order her invitations on their own or as part of the kits, just message me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know what your party details are and what type of invitation you’d like to purchase.
You can see her current designs for the Crafty Mommy on my site and below:
A black and white party for a baby or bridal shower, anniversary party, or an adult birthday party.
A Twinkle Twinkle Little Star shower or first birthday party for a girl and a mustache shower or first birthday party for a boy.
A pretty princess party for the little princess in your life.
A circus and jungle themed birthday parties (jungle one is coming soon to the shop).
And finally, our Halloween party. A lot of people have been ordering bits and pieces of this kit as decorations for their home for the holiday.
And definitely let us know if there are any other themes you’d like to see in the shop!
This past weekend I had the pleasure of hosting a relaunch party of my party kits (think themed parties in a box).
Several of my friends and family showed up to see 9 of my newest kits and share their feedback with me. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive and I’m so grateful.
If you live far away or were not able to attend in person, don’t worry, several of the kits I previewed yesterday (and some new ones) are available online at thecraftymommy.com/shop. I’ll be adding even more this week including Halloween, a Princess theme, and a Dinosaur kit so come back often!
And stay tuned for even more to come in the upcoming months. I’ll be unveiling something special for the holidays and of course I always love hearing from you and what you would like to see.
Thanks to everyone for their support!
I’m so excited to announce I just launched another party kit theme in my Etsy.com store. It is the Mickey and Minnie Mouse party kit and it is my favorite party theme yet.
Mickey and Minnie party ears for each of your guests instead of party hats.
These favor bags are made more fun with a Mickey Mouse handle.
You’ll get 18′ of this handmade mouse garland.
Customize these handmade invitations with your own party details.
And as with any party I throw, you’ve gotta have custom straws.
Are you hosting a party for a boy? No worries, I can customize everything to be Mickey Mouse. Having a party for a little girl? I can do all Minnie Mouse too. Or mix them together to create a little bit of both.
In this kit you get the following (it’s the biggest one yet):
- 10 favor bags with Mickey handles
- 18’ of mouse garland
- 10 handmade invitations, which you can customize with details
- 20 red polka dot straws
- 10 sets of ears for the kids to wear (you can specify whether you want Mickey and Minnie or just Minnie or just Mickey)
- 4 black balloons with mouse ears
- Instructions for putting it all together
I can also make more or less of the items in this kit (like the favor bags and ears if you are having a larger or small party), just message me. You can also buy any of the items in my kits individually, just shoot me an email and let me know what you’d like to purchase and I will work with you to customize the detail of your party. Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog!
