Being part of this spooktacular celebration for Addison’s birthday was such a hoot! The birthday girl really had a vision for her perfect party. She wanted Halloween Carnival styled stations for activities, but with a Monster High theme. I collaborated with Mom, Gretchen, who had chosen to rent a large tent to cover their outside basketball court. This space was the perfect setting for a carnival! We filled the venue with tons of entertaining games (traditional- from apple bobbing and bean bag toss, to a “Pin the Heart on Draculaura” to bring in our theme), a few sit-down crafts for creative kiddos, then brought in the talents of a local Balloon Twister and Face Painter to really wow the guests!
Upon entry, each child received tickets and a check list tied to a goody bag that directed them through each station and a take-home tote to stash their loot! I kept décor consistent to our
Carnival style with a ticket booth and pennants across the tent ceiling in classic Halloween colors, but vamped up the details with a “fabulously girly” Monster High style by using feather boas,
glittery skulls and starry tulle. It dazzled the space just right to set the party tone to be not scary,
but fun, funky and fabulous!
