We have yet another amazing party to share with you that was styled and hosted by MudPie Parties out of Alberta Canada. Having previously shared with you their Mario Kart party and Super Hero party, you are most likely becoming familiar with their bright and cheerful style and ability to capture a theme in “action.” This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles party lands just as high on the cheerful scale as all their other parties and meets their goal of making parties imaginative and active. Melissa Peterson, owner and head event planner, tells us about how this Ninja Turtle party was brought to life!
My 4 year old son, Cruz, wanted a Ninja Turtle party for party theme this year. As with most parties we do at MudPie Parties, we wanted to keep it active and with elements of imaginative play and whimsy. So, I thought it would be pretty neat to have all the kids go through Ninja Turtle training. With this in mind, we created a Master Splinter Training Academy where they would earn their “shell”! Some party decor details included the following:
Masks and Shell – As partygoers arrived they were able to pick out a felt shell and choose their color mask before heading off to the bouncy castle to play while the other guests arrived.
Green Balloons with ninja turtle masks – made out of construction paper
Entry Table Backdrop – City skyline cut out of poster board and painted windows on them.
Birthday Table – Cruz’s favorite turtle is Donatello – so we created his table with purple with lots of green accents. We bought letters of his name covered in Ninja Turtle comic book paper, along with a green #4 with a mask on it, as the centerpieces of the table.
Photobooth – We had 2 photo op areas. One was a dark navy fabric with white clouds (cut out from poster board) with cardboard buildings to create a skyline. We also had a friend paint a cutout Ninja Turtle to take pictures behind with a brick fabric in the background.
Entertainment – We had a friend dress up as Raphael and he was involved throughout the training activities. And of course, we had a friend dress up as Shredder for the little ninja turtles in training to defeat!
Food – Our dessert table featured as many of the Ninja Turtle theme I could fit! The cake and cupcakes (Over The Top Cakes), the cake pops, and cookies (Whimsical Cake Studio) were amazing in look and taste! I also made the cake pop stand out of the top of a wood stool and with some paint created a sewer lid cake pop stand! And you couldn’t do a Ninja Turtle party without pizza! We attached a printable sign on each of the pizza boxes that said Cruz’s Pizzeria for the table.
Gift bags – I made Ninja Turtle gift bags by buying bright green bags and and taping little masks and a smile on them.
