This clever OM NOM MONSTER 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Laura Harper of My Pookie Designs. Any child who loves the game, ‘Cut the Rope’ would adore this party! So cute!
Laura said this about planning the party- “As I was thinking about what theme to do for my son’s 1st birthday party, I had already been thinking a monster theme. Then I thought of things about my little guy and the fact that he eats a lot came to mind, we call him our little om nom. Instantly I thought of the cute little green monster named Om Nom from the App game “Cut the Rope” and fell in love with the idea!
The color scheme went right along with the game- green, blue, cardboard and peppermint :) Peppermint candies were easy to do around Christmastime! Besides peppermints, the decor consisted of green polkadot background, cardboard boxes as stands, black yarn pompom Spider garland, and of course a cute plush Om Nom monster.
Since om nom refers to eating, we did a dinner and had a Pizza Bar. Simple, quick and delicious! The treats were few including: Om Nom cake, peppermint sugar cookies, peppermint swirl cookies (which were used for one of the games), Peppermint whipped dip with ginger thins, red Squeeze-it drinks and peppermint candies.
For the favors, everyone got a small box with a peppermint sugar cookie with a tag saying, “Thanks for cOMNOMing over!”
For the games we played: Cookie hang (like the donut hang), balloon bottom pop (with a twist-teams had to pop balloons and get 3 stars inside to win), Matching game with my lil guy’s pictures (another twist with a few cards with picture of the Spidey in game- if they turned it over they lost a turn) and a peppermint spin contest.
It’s amazing how much you can do with just a simple idea from a game like Cut the Rope. Very few details, so many possibilities.”

Christina said this about planning the party- “This Little Monsters themed baby shower was inspired by the Ikea Little Monsters collection. We styled our focal point on monstrous decor items, which the mother-to-be raved about. The shower was held on a beautiful winter afternoon. Although it’s winter, she requested that we stick with the primary colors while allowing the beauty of nature take center stage. The sweet treats we package were cupcakes, Mike and Ikes, rock candy, and cookies n’ creme chocolate bars.”

The first weekend party feature goes to this absolutely darling COLORFUL MONSTER BASH PARTY submitted by Kate Petronis of And Everything Sweet.
This is beyond adorable. What a fun birthday party this would be! All the monster treats are to die for…look at the monster arm cookies used to ‘build your own cupcake monster’!! Soooo cute.
Here is what Kate said about the party- “Last night we had a monster bash. It was such a fun time! A big huge thanks to Amanda Parker from Shindig Parties to Go. She has a brilliant party mind. The monster collection she created really brought this party to life. I had 23 kids over for this party, it was crazy!! The kids played carnival games, adopted pet monsters (which I made), and decorated their own cupcakes. It was a great time!”
Thanks for your submission, Kate!
