Jacob's Monster's Inc 5th Birthday Party

For Jacob's 5th birthday party he wanted a Monster's Inc theme. We ended up changing the date of his party at the last minute so that my aunt, uncle, and brother could all come, as they were up visiting for Thanksgiving.

For food, we had spaghetti with meatballs, sandwiches, warm fruit salad, and a few Monster's Inc snacks like cheez-its and chocolate chip cookies with MI pictures on them. I put skewers with stick on eyeballs on them into the meatballs to make them look like monsters and cut and assembled the sandwiches to look like monsters. It was a lot of fun to do. We made a green punch (strawberry kiwi hawaiian punch mixed with sprite) to look like Mike from Monster's Inc. I also made green and blue jello squares for Mike and Sulley.

The cake I made was very simple. I made a circle cake and decorated it to look like Mike. 

I also made Mike ice cream sundaes out of mint chocolate chip ice cream, whipped cream, and hot fudge. 

For decorations we made Mikes out of paper lanterns. Matt bought a HUGE Mike balloon and a Sulley balloon. 

We played two games at the party. The first was Pin The Eye on Mike. The second was throwing sticky eyeballs on a monster. Everyone had a lot of trouble with this game but it was still fun.

After the games, Jake opened his presents. He got lots of nice things, too much to list! Then we had cake and ice cream. It was a fun party.

  1. Nice food ideas and it must have been a great party. We are going to celebrate our daughters 8th birthday tomorrow. We are having some home renovation being done so we’ll be celebrating at one of the New York venues instead. I love cooking for parties so the food is all going to be from my kitchen. Hoping to have a great time.


Thanks for the love! I appreciate all feedback!
