Uglydoll Birthday Party (with Free Uglydoll Printables!)

My daughter has always loved Uglydolls. As a lazy person, I thought this would make a great theme - if decorations looked messy or weird, I could pretend it was on PURPOSE. It's a monster-themed party, and monsters are messy and weird!

Read on for free Uglydoll party printables - invitations, loot bag tags, AND cupcake toppers!

Invitations

My sister designed these double-sided invitations. Aren't they cute? Because I am super nice, I am providing them to you as a free printable. You can download them here.

Decorations

I believe that party decorations should be easy and NOT take forever. I'd rather be watching TV. For that reason, I made the super easy streamers that I featured here. I also got a giant thing of felt and cut out an Ice Bat shape. Because Uglydoll shapes are a little weird, I knew it didn't have to be perfect.

The big stripey "1" was also really easy. I cut the shape out of poster board, and then covered it with Duct Tape.

Games

My daughter was only 1, and the only guests at this party were her cousins, so I was very lazy about party entertainment. I did two things:

1) Kiddie pool. Instant fun.

2) Monster dress-up.

I got a pack of colourful headbands, then used felt and pipecleaners to make eyes, ears and horns. The designs are based on Uglydoll characters. I also hauled out our dress-up bin.

That was it! There's no need to go crazy with this stuff.


Loot Bags

Instead of loot bags, everyone went home with a little keychain-sized Uglydoll. They each had a small tag that said "Thanks for coming! Bring a little Ugly home!" You can download the free loot bag tag printable here. You're welcome.

Cupcakes & Free Printables

What's the baking equivalent of a black thumb? I have that, so I always buy cupcakes and stick cute toppers on them. For this party, I used Uglydoll cupcake toppers that my sister designed. You can download them here!
