With Allana’s birthday the day after Halloween, I wanted to plan something easy to keep 20 sugar laced Halloween high kids happy and out my house without breaking the bank. And I would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those meddling kids!
Allana requested a Scooby Doo party to celebrate her 7th birthday and Monster Mini Golf seemed like a logical place to host such a party. As to be expected, this glow in the dark miniature golf playground set the perfect scene for a Scooby Doo party.
I love creating my own invitations for our parties. For Allana’s Scooby Doo invitations, I printed the text and the Mystery Machine on separate sheets. I then cut out the Mystery Machine and used popup foam squares (something my scrapbooking friends turned me onto) to give it a 3-D effect.
Armed with glowing bracelets, vampire fangs and pirate eye-patches, the party guests were well equipped to play monster miniature golf in the dark. All the big kids and the little kids had a blast putting past the spooky not so spooky monsters and freaky clown. Allana said it was the best birthday day ever. Seriously, the best? We’ve had some good ones, but that’s another bloggie topic.
After the party, my sister and my parents popped over for dinner and more cake. Allana requested steak and baked potatoes for her birthday dinner. Isn’t it funny how they love the food you ate most of while they were in utero?
Of course, the presents and company were great and the food and multiple cakes were delicious, but what made this birthday truly special was witnessing my little baby transform into this amazing cool kid before my eyes.
Happy 7th Birthday, Allana!
