Monster Movie Night for kids with Whole Foods Market Berkeley
Halloween! It’s getting really close, mamas. We’ve found that while trick or treating is certainly a thrill for young kids, dressing up in costumes and hanging out with their friends in a festive, familiar space can be just as fun. But if you’re up to your neck in costume-making, it’s hard to find time for party planning too. Our friend Lisa planned this inspired Monster Movie Night party along with the talented catering crew from Whole Foods Market Berkeley and we have to say, it looks like a pretty perfect way to spend Halloween.
Did you know that most of the chefs at Whole Foods are literally DYING for an opportunity to make something out of the ordinary? They’re all super talented and love whimsical catering challenges. Plus you know that whatever they make is going to be healthy and wholesome for your kiddos. You have to see what they came up with for this spooky feast.
Watermelon brain, anyone?! And those creepy hands coming out of the hummus and veg platter are kind of amazing.
Bonus, you can pick up flowers (complete with cheesecloth ghosts!) from their floral department. One stop shopping wins every time.
Lisa picked up paper goodies from the Oh Happy Day Party Shop. Such a great resource for party planning!
Pumpkin eyeball FTW!
The Whole Foods bulk aisle is a great resource for sweets that aren’t *too* sweet. Pack them up in little bags like these so kids can experience the joy of unwrapping. What IS is about packaging that they find so fascinating?
Lisa set up a perfect spot for movie watching with a low table in front so each child could eat their dinner or draw during the show.
Obsessed with this “guest” that Lisa made to keep the kids company!
Mkay, this might be our favorite part of the catering menu at Whole Foods Berkeley, and it’s perfect for ANY party coming your way. If your child draws a picture, their pastry chefs will recreate it on a cake! (Artwork by Lucas, Lisa’s son.)
Ummm, so gross but so awesome.
Monster pizzas? CHECK!
The most amazing, inspired Halloween party food, ever! And such a fun way for kids to celebrate the holiday. Thanks for planning such a cute party, Lisa. And for the insane food, Whole Foods Berkeley!
