This week my oldest son turns SEVEN. It seems like only yesterday I brought him home from the hospital. I want to share some of the pictures and ideas I used for his Angry Bird birthday. You can check out my post on Garanimals for tips for organizing for a birthday party, but I wanted to share some of the photos here. These are the invites my husband designed. The bottom line had our address, RSVP info and the time and date of the party. He is a graphic designer by trade which comes in handy!
Here’s how I set up our main table. We had two parties in one day so I swapped out the cake and put out a new batch of treat bags, but I keep it fairly simple.
The treat bags were one of the hardest parts to figure out. I decided to make bags that looked like Angry Birds and fill them with the stuff below. The sling shots were found at Oriental Trading, the Notepads at Walmart, and the punch balls at Target. My youngest son gave Angry Bird Valentines out so we used the extra tattoos in the treat bags and the mustache tattoos we came across at Hobby Lobby. We sorted the M&M’s by color and put them in the bags found on etsy and we used the file found below to decorate them. There is also a rubber ball and some licorice in another cellophane bag.
We had a separate “cake” for each party. The kids got this cupcake tower which I decorated using the Angry Bird graphics with cookie sticks. I just took the graphics and punched them with a 2″ circle punch and taped to cookie sticks. I actually bought the cupcakes instead of making them because this momma procrastinated and ran out of time – oops!
For the cake for the Family party I bought it from our favorite baker. I instructed them the colors that I wanted to use and to leave a large blank area on the top half of the cake. I them used pieces from an Angry Bird game I had. To stack the items I used a little frosting to make them stick to each other.
We had one main game at the kids party and it involved setting up boxes in Angry Bird style and knocking the “Pigs” down. The pigs were some of the same graphics taped on green ball pit balls we had. They then threw the large red ball at the boxes to knock them down. Luckily it was nice weather so we could play outside instead of in the basement.
It was a fun party – but I’m exhausted! You can throw an Angry Birds party with a little imagination! I wanted to share the Angry Birds Printable that I used for most of my decorations. Enjoy!
