For my son’s sixth birthday we decided upon a robot theme after seeing the great robot mask birthday party invitations at Pear Tree. My son is a Kindergartner this year, and his classroom theme is all about robots, so he thought it was the perfect birthday party idea for his friends!
My ‘vision’ for this party was to use lots of metallic and shiny materials, combined with the bold colors from the invitation.
Since I’m a photographer, I always have to incorporate a photo booth into my party decor, which is not only a fun activity for the kids but also ensures that I’ll have some photos to remember the event when it’s over! We made a photo booth backdrop out of tinfoil, (yes, tinfoil!), and covered it in cutout gears that matched the invitation theme. I then added some table décor pieces from the Pear Tree collection. It was definitely shiny and fun!
We ordered a few extra invitations to use as photo props and attached wooden skewers for holders. I also found a kit at Target to make silly ‘geek’ glasses with mustaches, so we made a few to use as photo props.
Finding Walden is one of our beloved Pearistas. She just had her son’s fifth birthday party and used Pear Tree Greetings to set the tone for the party. Her party is full of kids birthday party ideas so be sure to visit her blog for the full party.
Joshua just turned five, you guys. Five feels so huge! It really feels like just yesterday I was planning his Super Mario Super Birthday Party but no, nope. I was recently tasked with planning a FIFTH birthday party.
Pear Tree Greetings has some perfect Superhero Birthday Invitations in their kids’ birthday invitations line right now, and I knew that they would help me give Joshua a superhero birthday party with a twist. Invites! Ordered! BAM!
I also threw some Superhero Thank You cards into the cart so that we can practice teaching gratitude and penmanship. (Being thankful and sensory practice! BOOM!)
And then I fell into full on party planning psychosis on Pinterest and we started the busiest month ever. EVER.
While I was browsing the Pear Tree site, I saw that they’ve recently launched a line of kids’ party decor and scoped it out. I found kids party decorations that matched the superhero invites and a coordinating set with a slightly different style. I bought them both and threw in some searching for heros favor tags for good measure.
What better way to celebrate your 5th birthday than with a pizza party with all your friends?! That’s exactly what this little girl did, as she said goodbye to 4 and hello to 5. Read below for all of our pizza-themed kids birthday party ideas. Magnifico!
Pear Tree’s kids birthday invitation really set the tone for this party. We used the Pizza Party Photo Spinner Kids Birthday Invitations, personalized with four fun photos of the birthday girl.
Next, it was time to plan our pizza party decorations! We kept it simple, with subtle touches like mustache straws & cupcake toppers, and used the classic pizzeria colors of red, black and white, with green for an accent. The chef’s hat topped it all off (no pun intended).
