Monster High inspired Ghoul Glam printables


First, let me start by admitting I had NO IDEA what Monster High was until one of my Girl Scouts told me she wanted it as her theme for her birthday party. I asked my 8 year daughter what it was and she says “MOM, everyone knows what Monster High is!” I of course thought I was the hip, up to date with the kids’ trends mom, so, I took that as a challenge and looked into it and OMG!! Sooo CUTE and…ALL THE RAGE amongst tweens! Once I announced to the troop that this year’s Halloween party would be Monster High themed…they all SCREAMED!

YEAH! Score #1 for “in the know” Girl Scout Troop Leader! (wink, wink)

The inspiration point came from the logo and this fabulous skull printed fabric I came across which was the beginning of the inspiration board! I always begin designing an event from an inspiration point which can come from almost anything.

I really wanted this Soiree to be memorable and fun for the girls with lots of designer touches and personalized items to keep with my design style. I incorporated the Monster High color palette of black, white, hot pink and turquoise and added in my signature sparkle & bling!

Since this event was my own personal party, I was able to use the Monster High artwork and characters on all the printable decor and of course, I personalized it with each girl’s names which THEY LOVED! The printables consisted of our signature Lolli-tag™ bouquets, cookie/candy bag toppers, Lolli-tag™ cupcake toppers, circle tags and table signage.

So, of course I had to enlist the help of the fabulous Lynlee of Lynlee’s Petite Cakes who also had no idea what Monster High was, so I sent her some pics and inspiration and she came up with the most adorable set of MH fondant toppers that I used on sugar cookies and placed inside candy bag toppers that I designed. She made the Monster High signature argyle pattern out of fondant!!! HELLOOOO! This chic is AMAZING and so detailed her toppers are truly little works of art! Did I mention I am an out-of-the-closet Lynlee’s Petite Cakes fan?

The sweets bar also featured Monster High cotton candy (a staple on most of our sweets bars) and blue snowballs (personalized with their own Lolli-tag™). The blue snowballs were a total FIND! Just happened to come across them walking down the aisle, minding my own business at the grocery store and gasped out loud when I saw them…they matched my color palette perfectly! They normally only come in pink so I was SOOO EXCITED to see them in blue!



The key to a successful event with 12 or more tween girls is to keep them busy and entertained!
The activities for the parties were:

Frankie Stein’s Dressing Room & Accessory Bar
Bar full of take-home hats, denim bags with personalized Lolli-tag™ and personalized keychain, beaded necklace and spider headbands they assembled.


We even had time for photos! I was inspired by Lynlee’s use of Draculaura’s fangs & lips, so I created a photo backdrop area and designed photo prop sticks of the lips and had the girls pose with them.

Lagoona Blue’s Mystery Boxes
filled with spooky textured items and named spooky things like “Lagoona Blue’s fish eyes!” The girls loved this activity.

Ghoulia Yelps Arts & Crafts Bar
The girls decorated their own take home pumpkins, completed a Monster High full color Activity Book and took home a Monster High coloring book.

Clawdeen Wolf’s Scavenger Hunt
The girls were sent out into the moonlit night armed with LOTS of glow in the dark bracelets and necklaces to find take home fangs, stickers & pencils hidden all around my dimly lit backyard.

Then of course, a party isn’t complete without loud music and dancing so the last activity was Let’s Sing & Dance! with Cleo DeNile

The bat piñata was the finale which was full of candy and took no time at all for the girls to get that busted open and collected all the candy. We then filled the entire yard with tons of wrapped candy that the girls all collected in their trick-or-treat bags! The girls were LOADED with candy by the end of the party!

Then to top it all off, the girls visited Draculaura’s Drink Bar where they could sip on “Blood Punch” (Hawaiian Punch) and “Fang-Ade” (lemonade). They all ate pizza and had Halloween cake.

The girls all had smiles on their faces when their parents picked them all up…I went to bed COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED…but happy that they had such a good time!

TIP: The backdrop of both the Arts & Crafts and Sweets Bars were black boas to give it that gothic glam vibe! I use boas as backdrops ALL THE TIME! I especially love to use them as photo backdrops. I just love the vibrancy of the color choices and the texture is AMAZING in person and in photos…however, do be prepared to have feathers EVERYWHERE and in this instance, a broom is not your friend! A shop vac will be needed :)
