Pokemon Party

Saturday was L's Pokemon themed, fifth birthday party. He was surrounded by most of his favorite people, and had a great day.
Here are some pics of the event, including some of my crafty decorative endeavors.

The cupcakes, with little Pokemon figurines from Ebay.

L saw me making all kinds of things for the party, and drew this Pokemon poster.

The Pin the Tail on the Pikachu game ended up being pretty funny. The kids all cheated and peeked..

This was a Feed the Munchlax bean bag game. The Pokeball hanging on the wall held the apple shaped bean bags for the game.

This was supposed to be Professor Oak's laboratory, where you could "choose your Pokemon." The kids got to choose which colors of those little capsule encased sponge animals they wanted, and then we dropped them into jars of water, and watched to to see what they turned into.

Here were a few of our snacks. I came up with themed names for everything, "Magikarp crackers", (goldfish,) etc.

L saw this pinata at Target, and told me it looked like Cloyster, the Pokemon. I was happy to buy it, since it meant I wouldn't have to make the DIY Pokeball version I had been thinking about...

It was very hard to open, though, so eventally after everyone had several turns trying to crack it, I had to tear it open, as shown here. Hahaha.

Among the silliest gifts my son received was this enormous jar of Candy Corn, which is his favorite candy.

Both kids had fun, and went to bed last night exhausted, and full of candy. Good thing birthdays only come once a year...

  2. I love this. My 8 year old son is wanting a Pokemon themed party this year and this gave me great ideas for games and favors. And the shirts are totally cute, I am going to steal that idea for his party too.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Renee. We're doing yet another (slightly less DIY,) Pokemon party here this year for L's 7th birthday. The kids may end up wearing their old t shirts to this party too. They've stood the test of time well. :)

  4. Really liking all these pics of the birthday party. I am searching for one of the perfect Seattle venues for my birthday party next month. Cookies and cakes will be baked by my mother. Confused of booking one as all of them are good and affordable. Will surely take second opinion from my friend.
