My oldest is 5. I have been a mom for a half a decade. Seriously, I am in a state of shock at how quickly this has gone. I am not ready for the years to come. I am so excited for what is going to happen in the years to come. God is going to do some amazing things with this boy!
These Chocolate cupcakes are my favorite! There's nothing really else to say. They are filled with a marshmallow cream filling and have a ganache frosting. Have I mentioned that I am in love with ganache?
Since the party was a mid afternoon party, we just did snack-y foods.
:: I bagged cheddar bunnies into monster treat bags that I found at the Target Dollar Spot
:: Snicker's Caramel Corn
:: Deviled eggs (monster eyes)
:: Spinach Dip and Pita Chips
:: Chips, salsa, and Guacamole
:: Veggie cups
:: crescent dogs (not pictured)
:: Cake Balls
The Letter E is a cardboard letter from JoAnn's and I wrapped it with some fun yarn. I was going to put eyes on it to make it sort of monster like, but it never happened. . . and I don't think anyone even noticed. So, it's all good.
I love having things for the kids to do while the parents are chatting. So I I bought some fun monster kids through Oriental Trading for the kids to work on and printed out some fun monster coloring sheets. Plus, I with the help of my dad made this bean bag toss. I think I even caught the parents doing some of the kid things. . . which I totally love!
To end the party, all the kids got to pick out a monster (each one was different) and fill out this adoption form. This may have been my most favorite detail about the whole party.
The Invitation. . . with the important stuff covered up. :)
