Ninja Party

Confession time.
Ready?


So I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to kids birthday parties. Big Time Nerd.
Start with a theme from the little man and I can't help but get giddy with all sorts of ideas.


I was pretty excited when Treven picked Ninja. I've seen some recent parties in Blogworld related to the Ninja theme, so I was ready to roll :)


For me, it all starts with the invites. I was really inspired by a card I saw on Etsy, so we started with that. 

ninja invitations

ninja envelopes


.The cartoon talk bubble and throwing star carried over onto the envelopes.

ninja favors

The favors were fingertraps, chinese fans, little ninjas, glasses, raisins and fortune cookies. They were all packaged up within a takeout container with a ninja and a good luck coin attached to a thank you tag.

For the dessert table:

candy sushi

throwing star cookies

dipped fortune cookies

ninja cake pops

nunchuk cake

the setup

I strung balloons onto a string and used pushpins to attach them to the ceiling. Then I grabbed a piece of artwork we have downstairs and brought it up to use as a backdrop. Ninjas/Talk bubbles were used as tags for the food.

And then I completely forgot to pop popcorn and fill the containers... oops! :)

We served pizza for lunch. Treven's thinking was that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles eat pizza, so that means all ninjas eat pizza. Love it! We set up the back deck with low tables so the little ninjas could eat dojo-style. And of course, I forgot to take a picture of this beforehand with everyone's favor box set out....


But here's the aftermath :)



The kiddos jumped on the bouncy house for the majority of the time. Oh did I mention 22 kids were there? Oh yes. Big thanks to our friends who helped us out that day! (And who also got a turn in the bouncy house!) Then it was time for cake. Nunchuks!


Another confession. My kiddo is totally faking this for picture sake. He's pretty good at it.
(It was a bit windy for the candles to stay lit.)


Our little Ninja, Harper, had fun watching her big brother at his party!


And that was the Ninja Party! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Thank you! I actually just drew a little cartoon outline, and then traced that a bagillion times onto black cardstock. Numerous hours were logged in cutting out all those ninjas!
