PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jamee…
This is a kid friendly Halloween party with a trinkets and treats buffet. We chose the theme monsters in vibrant colors: Orange, Lime Green and Turquoise.
The kids tablesetting had floor length linen with a fuzzy blanket topper to mimic monster fur. At the legs of each table we purchased fuzzy slippers and added monster nails so that it looked like the monster was a part of the table. We created giant eyeballs to hang on the back of the chairs using the oversized plastic gumball vending containers and a foam bowl. We sprinkled googlie eyes on the fuzzy topper and stacked cake pops on a popsicle holder at each place setting. We also clipped monster tails on the backs of each chairs for the kids to wear.
MONSTER TRINKET & TREAT BUFFET
The trinket and treat buffet was clothed in black linen so that all of the brightly colored elements would “pop.” We created a wrapped candy garland for the front of the table using styrofoam balls and colored cellophane for the wrapper. The backdrop was a giant one eyed blue monster. This was created out of foamcore and the eye was the same application as on the chairs. The eyelashes were purchased on eBay and their original use was for car headlights. Some features of the buffet were scrap paper cones filled with flavored popcorn, sitting in wire ice cream cone holders. Monster face cupcakes were perched on a long candle holders that we painted orange. We used store bought pillar holders that had monster feet and topped it with a clear glass filled with sixletes and eyeball lollies. We found Jelly Belly Sodas in matching colors and topped the bottle caps with eyeballs. The ceramic monster heads came from Target and we filled the mouths with yummy candy. Some of the trinkets on the buffet were mini paddle (eye)balls, monster teeth, monster finger puppets, bouncy balls and monster straws.
