This year for my boys’ joint birthday party we went with a shark theme. The boys didn’t really have their hearts set on anything special (okay, my oldest would have done another superhero party like last year, and my youngest would have done something construction related…but I wanted to do something new ), so we sat down at the computer and browsed through the birthday party invitations on Pear Tree’s site for inspiration. They immediately loved the mask designs and especially the shark theme! And so, the planning began…
Although the Shark Mask Kids Birthday Invitation didn’t require any photos, I still wanted to do a mini photo shoot with the boys so we could have photos displayed on the day of the party. I found the perfect shirts and we were set!
Once we had our theme, the décor and party items came together pretty quickly. I ordered matching ‘Shark’ table décor and posters, then pulled the red and aqua colors from the invite into the serving pieces wherever I could.
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.
