Things are turning very green around here in honor of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie. My friends at Birthday Express asked me to create a fun TMNT party for their site. Of course I immediately said yes. I grew up with TMNT and love seeing my boys getting excited about "turtle power".
The sweets on the table were cookies, green rock candy, and CandyBobs from Sweets From Heaven. Not only were the CandyBobs adorable, but totally delicious. The kind of delicious that makes you want to hide the leftovers from the kids and eat them yourself.
I added TMNT paper masks to these trendy green chevron paper lanterns and hung them above my cardboard skyline cutout.
The Turtles love pizza so the kiddos each got their own set of pizza erasers to take home as well as Turtle water bottles, pull back skate boards, and barrels of slime.
Quick little styling tip... height is super important on any dessert table. I create risers out of anything in my kitchen that matches my party colors. For this party, I flipped over my Rachel Ray Square Singles and placed a basic white tray on top of the ramekins and another white tray in front. Voila, instant 2-tiered cookie trays!
It's fun to see a new generation of kids getting into Pokémon. It's a complex world of evolving characters, trainers, TV shows, and trading cards that have my kids enthralled. My son's best friend Luke turned 7 this summer and requested a Pokémon party. Finding party supplies for this theme was not as easy as current popular kid's themes (as this show is 20 years old!), but luckily my friends at Birthday Express, Wants and Wishes, and Creativities Galore were able to help me pull this party together.
I fell in love with the printable Pokémon party collection by Wishes and Wants and knew I needed it for this party-- my favorite printable was the Poké Ball with the birthday boy's name and "I CHOOSE 7 YEARS OLD" it represents Pokémon perfectly!
I kept the desserts pretty simple for this party by adding Poké Ballcupcake toppers by Creativites Galore to store bought cupcakes and filling white buckets with brightly colored candies to represent the different types of "powers". Lastly I created a backdrop made yellow paper plates stacked and glued together (paper plate backdrop inspired by my favorite party friends over at Piggy Bank Parties).
A HUGE thank you to my awesome vendors who helped me create this party!
Meet Princess Mia... she is turning 8 this summer, entering second grade in the fall, plays violin, Dek hockey, softball, and loves to dress up like Princess Anna. Mia had the opportunity to try on the new Disney Frozen Deluxe Anna costume from BuyCostume.com. We love how this costume includes a separate petticoat that goes underneath the dress, perfect for jumping, twirling, and acting out scenes from the movie!
Meet Princess Julianna... she is entering Kindergarten this fall, plays soccer, dances, and loves to dress up as all her favorite princesses. Julianna's favorite princess right now happens to be Elsa. Julianna had the opportunity to try on the Deluxe Elsa Costume from BuyCostumes.com. She loves the tiara (fitted like a headband for comfort) and the extra sparkles on the dress and sleeves.
BuyCostumes.com is proud to be one of the only online retailers to have any stock in Frozen costumes right now and are taking pre-orders.
Welcome to Monster Jam 8, a monster truck birthday party full of fun activities, sweets, & lots of dirt!
The dessert table featured a mud splattered cake by Samantha's Sweets. Sam created a 2 tier cake with tire treads running up over sides and top to look like a monster truck ran over the cake!
It's going to be
BIG & BAD
and the most fun
you've ever had!
I absolutely fell in love with this invitation by Kori Clark. Kori's printable collection perfectly coordinated with my vision for a preppy, modern monster truck party. I handed out the invitations and pit passes in red and white striped favor bags.
The kids loved these tire cups from Birthday Express. I added 2" circles from Kori Clark to the tires to complete the look. The ribbon garlands and ruffle topiaries made by Sweet Georgia Sweet added a preppy, modern feel to the party.
The monster truck pinata doubled as a centerpiece for the table as well as an activity for later!
The kids had a blast decorating monster trucks with puffy paints, acrylic paints, and stickers. I am totally impressed with the quality of these kits. The trucks are push backs and really can run over stuff!
I enlarged this print from Kori Clark and made it into a "pin the circle on the wheel" game.
Anyone who was able to pin the circle into the wheel won a prize.
This 3D wall blast made for a dramatic entrance to the party. The monster truck looked as if it was bursting out of the wall!
The kids took home their customized monster trucks as well as favor boxes filled with monster truck oil (slime), oversize bouncy balls, stickers, and party horns.
Love this look? Here's where you can find all the party goodies:
