Creative Disney Inspiration #19 - Monsters University Party Board

It's almost time for the DVD & BluRay release of Monsters University and I cannot wait!  Due to a crazy summer we didn't get to see it in theaters and I am very anxious to see it.  My favorite way to celebrate a movie release - a Party Board of course!!

I have already shared my Monsters University Food Party Board. Here's a reminder.

So today we will do a Monsters University Decor Party Board.

Monster's University Decor Party Board

  1. Monster Photo Booth - Photo booths are pretty popular right now, so I had to include these monstrously cute photo booth props from Little Retreats on Etsy.  A quick tip - if you're having your party outdoors be sure to put the photo booth in a shaded area so your guests are squinting and your pictures are not blown out.
  2. Monster's University Fear Book - After you make everyone a Student ID (#14) put together a mock MU Year Fear Book.  Channel your inner high school self and choose "Best Scarer" or "Most Likely to Break the Scaring Record" and be sure to keep "Cutest" and "Wittiest" in there too.
  3. MU Pennant - It's all about MU so be sure to hang a few pennants around to show your school spirit.
  4. MU Pins - First of all they're just cute.  But, you can give them away as a prize for the winner of the Scare Games or Monsters Trivia.
  5. MU T-shirt - Ask your guest to wear MU attire like this t-shirt or if they are adventurous enough their favorite MU character.
  6. MU Acceptance Letter Invitation - I posted this acceptance letter invitation a few weeks ago.  Here's your perfect time to put it to good use.
  7. Scare Theory Book - You can make your own Scare Theory Book like I did or you can make scary book covers.  Use the books to vary the height of foods on the table or on book shelves to look like the MU library.
  8. Monster Canvas - Julie Gdowski posted these in a Facebook Silhouette group I am a member of, and has allowed me to share these cute Monster Canvases with you.  They would be perfect for a "Monsters Wall of Fame" as a food table backdrop or a hallway.
  9. MU Tumbler - I have been meaning to make some MU sorority and fraternity beer mugs and wine glasses.  I promise I will get to it.  But you can always use these cute MU tumblers for the party.
  10. MU Greek Life - Sororities and Fraternitites play a big role in the movie, so why not divide your guests into them for your own Scare Games, trivia or scavenger hunt? To keep things fair have guests pull their Greek group out of a hat.
  11. Digital Download - Here are some really cute digital papers and embellishments to create your food labels, trivia sheets or scrapbook pages to remember the party.
  12. A113 - A number used over and over again in Pixar world, be sure to add it to the front door and see who gets the reference.  Thanks to my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic for inspiring this idea.
  13. Sulley Coaster - Great to keep water rings off of the furniture, a fun party favor for your guests and fun little extras to take your party over the top.
  14. MU Student ID - You can add the Student ID's in with the invitation or have them set up on a table for guest as they arrive but everyone needs a student ID.  They can even be used as a placecard at the table.  Another fun and inexpensive party favor for your guests - and a great addition to a scrapbook page.
  15. Mike Coaster -  Mike & Sulley are  a team so if you have Sulley coasters you gotta have Mike, right?
  16. MU Campus Map - Some great ideas if you are having a scavenger hunt or Monster Trivia.  Use the map for a Jeopardy type game - "I'll take School of Door Technology for 100"...
What's your favorite from the Monsters University Party Board? Are you planning a MU inspired celebration this year? I would love see pictures!! You can share your thoughts, ideas and pictures on the Disney Donna Kay Facebook page.

Have a Magical Day!!
