PARTY DETAILS, as told by Blair

Monsters Inc themed birthday party for my son. Decorations include a “Scarer of the Month” poster with each month being my son that month of his past year. Monsters Inc construction hats (DIY spray painted blue and used a circle punch for the Monsters Inc labels) Streamers were used as the table backdrop. I made all the character food labels, party favor tags and signs using the website picmonkey.com. All food and desserts made by me, food included. A Sully cake, using a Sully Funko Pop bobble head as the topper. I decorated clear push pops with washi tape to make the cake scream canisters. I made chocolate covered oreos and decorated them as Mike Wazowski for the party favors. I made pb&J sushi rolls to represent Harryhausen’s sushi restaurant from the movie.
