Grayson’s Monster Birthday Bash! {The SetUp}

I’m still finding googly-eyes. Everywhere.

Seriously

If you’ve ever been to a party thrown at my house, you know I love tissue poufs ūüôā I seriously had 60 left over after last year’s birthday/babyshower extravaganza weekend! I cheated on these and used foam eyes and horns that were in a craft kit from Dollar Tree.

I made these googly-eyed sandals about 10 minutes before the party! A little hotglue made them last through the party, without damaging my sandals.

Since this party had to be super budget-friendly, I painted three 6-foot monsters on Kraft paper for the boys to use as water-fun targets. It kept them busy for HOURS, was prety much free, and the kids were kept nice and cool in the July heat

Since we had G’s birthday party less than 48 hours after our wedding, I decided to keep it simple…Toddler-style!

Toddlers like: 
Goldfish {Or Monster’s University¬†themed Cheezits. Score!}
Strawberries
Hotdogs
Movies {Monster’s Inc. is Grayson’s new cure-all. Sad? Turn on MI! Rambunctious? Turn on MI! Mom is losing her mind? Pour some wine and turn on MI!}

Done and done

Of course, we threw in

Beer (for the dads)

A Photobooth (for the moms)

Water guns (mostly for the dads)

Add in 24 AHHHMAAZING cupcakes by Brittany May, and a grand time was had by all!
