Decorations and Party Favors For My Daughter's Party

My hubby and I threw my daughter a b-day party two weeks ago at our house to celebrate her 7th b-day.  The theme was of course Monster High.  (The Monster High dolls are her favorite.) She wanted a party with that theme that including some crafting. We spent an entire week after work and stayed up two nights in a row until 2am making and/or putting together decorations and party favors.  We decorated take out boxes from Michaels and put her favorite candy inside (M&Ms),

made signs that resemble a chalk board (We decided to make chalk boards to resemble a school since the Monster High DVDs are usually based around a school setting.)  for the names of the games and food (The games and food were all named after what the Monster High dolls like.),

made signs for different areas of the house that we turned into a "school",

made "Monster High tulips" to include with the centerpiece,

made a banner, 

and colored a cover for her party favor bags.

 Each of the girls got to decorate a foam board with letters to spell their name and with some cute foam stickers. Here's how we displayed everything for my daughter's party.

We set up a table in our backyard for my daughter's friends to draw her a picture and write her a message. 
(I am going to make a book for her with all the pages in it.) This activity was given to them to work on while we were waiting for all the guests to arrive.

At the end of the party all the girls got to take home a bag full of goodies and their foam plaque (as picture above).  All in all the party turned out great and everyone had a good time.  Seeing how happy our daughter was with her buddies made all the hard work and lost of sleep prepping for her party worth it.  Those of you are celebrate Chinese New Year, Happy Year of the Horse!  Stay tune for some fun crafty items for Chinese New Year.  I haven't made any of them yet because I am still waiting for my "Year of the Horse" stamp to arrive.  Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
