Do you want to learn how to build a nerf war party? Here is 10 ideas for you…
Parties are one of my very favorite things to do! After they are over my husband always looks exhausted; which is super funny to me since most of the time he just shows up! I think he gets exhausted just looking around at all the party “stuff” and watching me run around like a crazy person getting everything ready.
After the invitation comes all the party prep. The little details is what makes a party! The welcome sign leading into the party was a design by Linda K Creations. I also laminated a smaller version of the welcome sign that was put on a wooden skewer to stick in the grass when you went outback to enter the war zone! She also created this special tags for each child. When they got to the party each child was given a special name tag that I laminated and then attached these lanyards. These were a huge hit at the party! The kids loved seeing their name on the lanyards and it definitely took the party up a notch! They were also given these safety goggles and were able to pick out their own color of darts that they used in the war! The safety goggles were a must for sure! She also did the Happy Birthday sign for the backdrop of the party!
Studio Bee Designs on Etsy helped with the party circles that I used all over the entire party, the candy bar wrappers, and the thank you tags! The candy bar wrappers that were designed are amazing. They have so much detail on them that makes them extra special. Her downloads are very easy to use and she is very fast! She also has lots of other fun nerf party items!
A lot of my party inspiration came from Hello My Sweet! They have thrown a lot of nerf war parties and their stuff is all over Pinterest! They are incredible! I wish I could attend one of their parties! They were able to collaborate with me on the targets for the party along with the signs going into the party! Their targets lined the party and the kids all loved doing target practice with them.
The vinyl that was done for the party was done by one of my really good friends Mallory over at Classy Clutter Designs. She did special orders for the large water barrels, the darts that were all over the party, along with the mini logos for the cones for one of the activities. If you mention this party I am sure she will be able to print you the exact same thing!
Now onto the food. The cake pops were done by Sweet Events. She is locally here in Arizona and did such an amazing job on them! She even arranged them in a cute container which lightened the load of me! Each child was able to either eat theirs at the party or take it home with them! She did a variety of designs and they were super yummy and birthday cake flavor! I highly recommend ordering from her!
The popcorn boxes and straw flags were done by PRT Skin digital! The popcorn boxes were easy to cut, fold, and put together! They stood up great all by themselves. The straw flags were also a favorite of the kids! I was able to also keep everyones drinks organized since every drink had a straw flag in it with the child’s name on it! This is something I didn’t realize until the party was actually going how amazing it was to know who’s drink was who’s! It cut down on the waste of not knowing who’s drink was who’s and the kids were also able to take their drink home with them if they had not finished! I also used the straw flags to label the take home gifts! I attached one of the straw flags to these yellow boxes that I ordered! It was super easy to do and also easy to keep track of everyone’s stuff!
A few other must haves for the party were ordered off of Amazon. Because lets all be honest. Amazon is the best thing ever! The orange targets are found here. I bought the peg board from Home Depot and spray painted it black. Bought the hooks here. To help create the backdrop for the table. The blue cones for the shooting activity were the perfect size and were bought here. And then the napkins, forks, and plates were also ordered from Amazon. I also purchased hinges to make the little forts that the kids hid behind and under here. I purchased the wood from Home Depot. The camp cups that I put food in and glued the party circles to can be found here. Another addition to the party were these blue came nets. And the little targets that we lined up for the kids to shoot can be found here. These were way smaller than I intended but they ended up working out perfectly!
