Mega Monster Birthday Party Invitations

Yes you heard right. Lock the doors, check under the bed, and sleep with a flashlight because today's post is about Mega Monster Birthdays!

Depending on what era you grew up in, the word Monster invokes different things. Those of us who have a little salt and pepper in our hair often think of Frankenstein, King Kong, or Godzilla. They were serious monsters who were direct and to the point. Frankenstein wanted to be accepted. King Kong wanted the girl. And Godzilla, he just wanted to smash things up. But nowadays the monsters have changed a bit. There's a little more fun to them and a little more quirkiness.

Another great thing about monsters is there is one to suit everybody. Whether you're a fan of the old monsters or new ones, and whether the monster is scary or silly, you have to admit monsters are pretty darn fun. That's why monsters are a perfect theme for a birthday party. Planning for a monster themed birthday party is not only easy, but fun too! Here are just a couple ideas: monster costume party, monster cake, pin the tail on the Godzilla, monster face painting, haunted bouncy castle, put ice cubes filled with gummy worms in the punch bowl, and sooooo much more. In fact monsters are so varied and such a wonderful part of our pop culture that every aspect of your birthday party can easily be planned around it.

The best way to start any party off right is by sending out invitations in advance. Not only is it a great way to pass along important information (date, time, location), it is also a wonderful way to make your guests feel special and build up some pre-party excitement. Creating a bit of a buzz for your party is always a good thing. Below are some fun, customizable, Monster Birthday Invitations that are sure to get your guests excited for the big event.
