Best Kids' Parties: Godzilla

My Party

Name: Penny (1)
Location: Nashville, TN

Kevin and Mimi are big fans of vintage horror films, and they jokingly call their daughter Penny their "little monster," so they thought a Godzilla-themed party would be a fun, unique way to mark Penny's first birthday.

The invitation is reminiscent of a movie poster, with a toddler silhouette replacing the iconic Godzilla figure, and the Nashville skyline for a touch of personalization. We made a banner that gave a nod to the Japanese flag, with lettering in the "Godzilla" font spelling "Penzilla."

The food was loosely themed around Godzilla and his radioactivity/atomic fire breath. "Atomic Chicken" was really hot chicken, a Nashville specialty (we also had a non-spicy version for the kiddos). "Chopped sticks" were just crudite and ranch dip in individual cups. We also had peanut butter and jelly "sushi" (PB&J and bread rolled and sliced), Godzilla egg cake pops, and a watermelon carved into a Godzilla (or a dinosaur, depending on whom you ask) head and filled with cut fruit.

Thanks Emily! Readers, see more of the Penzilla party at Spaghetti Arms.
