Frankenweenie and Mad Scientist Party Ideas

Is anyone excited to see Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie as we are?

It just opened on Friday and I predict it will be hot on the Halloween and birthday party circuit as the perfect set up for a mad scientist theme. You’ll be the first to have the hottest party on the block with a few clever ideas.

Get the party started with Tiny Prints’ Frankenstein-inspired invites.

Since the movie is in retro black and white, you can make this your party colors with bright green and orange highlights; check out how The Happy Heathen used beakers and narrow glassware for their table decor.

Did you know that highlighter ink glows in black light? Brooklyn Limestone used this for their spooky jar effect.

Every mad scientist needs a lab full of experiments and One Charming Party has 10 experiments to tide your party over.

It’s hard to find healthy snacks appealing around so many sweets and treats but Kitchen Fun With My Three Sons‘ very clever Franken fruit snacks.

And speaking of sweets and treats, The Celebration Shoppe’s science themed cookies are too cute to eat.

Also from The Celebration Shoppe, these Rice Krispie treats make a great activity for young guests to make.

If you have push pop containers, you can make my Frankenpops; they make great party favors. Add them to your treat bags that can include bags of gummy frogs and scar tattoos.
