monster-carnival party decorations.

Hi peeps!

It's been awhile, but do you remember the monster-carnival invitations I posted?  I know you've been waiting with bated breath for me to post the rest of the decorations...

 Here's the whole lot - Do you see the cake-stand on the right with the piles of banners?  Because, how are you supposed to photograph 10 banners?  hee.

 I took cues from the invitation to create this fun food-table banner.  Each panel was way too large for me to use any existing stripe stamps, so it was me, a black copic, and a ruler to get 'er done.  worked perfectly.

 All of the food & treat items were given labels (love all of the names that my client came up with - I'm pretty sure that "monster hair" is for some kind of licorice, and not for, say... pasta.  but I could be wrong.)

 I have a few milk bottles lying around, so I thought I'd show you what the drink labels would look like....

 but there are a few more...

 These guys are getting slapped on little treat boxes... some of them ended up with black teeth, which is cracking me up.  Ahhhh ,the beauty of handmade!

 If there were a plate of monster cookies in front of me right now, I'd be chomping down on them like that monster...

 Of course, every carnival guest needs their own little baggie of carnival tickets... and fun tags to go with...

 mmmm.... monster tongues.  for those round, foot-long gum dispensers...

This is one of the 10 banners that were folded up in a pile in that first photo.  They will each hang over their own carnival game booth.

I hope you enjoyed your walk-through the decorations!  I'm looking forward to seeing some photos of the party after this weekend (*squints eyes at Lisa*)  It's gonna be huge!

Have a great weekend, all!
