I then chose to hang this banner
right when you walk in the party over the arch! It was the perfect length to hang from wall to wall. The banner was done amazingly and it was layered so it gave it a 3-D affect. She has some amazing items in her shop! She made me wish I was doing a Harry Potter party so I could use amazing Harry Potter banners
! Her website can be found here
On the other side of the table was this pokeball banner
. Great quality and perfect for this arch way!
To the left I set up a little “gifts section.” I hung this GIFTS banner
I printed. I also had printed the REMINGTON banner
. I hung the green dot banners and then some vinyl silhouettes
I had these printed in a few different sizes and hung them throughout the house!
On the tables I had gumball machines that I found at the dollar store with white
mini gumballs and then a variety of different red and white candies in circle jars that I got at the dollar store. I put some black washi tape
and then I used some circle cutters
and cut two different sizes of black and white circles. Throughout the party I put jars of these ping pong balls
that I taped half way and then spray painted red to create the pokeball look. Some of them I add the black lines for the main areas and then on the table I just kept them red and white. I also added these centerpieces
throughout the party. I also got the little chalkboard signs from Michaels and used a chalkboard marker to write the table number on them. I also had my son make these little Pokemon characters out of building blocks
Party Games and Activities
At the tables we have Pokemon card battling:
The other table I order these beads
and circle pegboards that we ironed and the kids took home with them.
The other table we had face painting going on. I have an amazing face painted in Arizona that I have used multiple times.
We also had fun and played bingo
I also made this Pikachu balloon arch at the back of the party and more of a focal point when you walk in the house.
In the kitchen I hung this fun Happy 7th Birthday Banner
from an amazing Etsy Shop! You can also see it hung behind the party set up.
And on the other side of the room was the table with all the goodie bags and party favors! I am obsessed with these water color prints
. Her shop is unbelievable!!!
Take Home Gifts
I had the kids cut out their own glasses
. They have a few different patterns and the kids loved the variety.
These little boxes
were so cute and fun, they did take a while assembling 24 of them. But they were fun and I hid a little pokeball
that had a figure in them in the box.
My whole family are suckers for bath bombs!!! Like we use them multiple times a week! When I found someone on etsy that did Pokemon bath bombs
, especially when they are bath bombs that you toss in your bath and then a Pokemon character comes out! You know you have to add them to the party!
We added the chocolate covered oreos
from the dessert table and put them in the goodie bags so that every person ended up eating them! Along with the sugar cookies in the personalized bags.
I also had these custom chip bags
designed. I stuffed them with the custom popcorn that I ordered because I had so much of it. My son sure thought he was awesome when he say his name printed on the bags!
The these custom made popcorn cones
I put white, black and red popcorn.
Cake and Treats
We had these little Pikachu cakes made with yellow cake mix in a mold
I had an amazing cake and cake pops done by my friend Casey. You can find her website here
. She is very affordable and has done my cakes for the last several parties.
Here are a few of the other food items that I had!
I took two plates together and made them into poke balls and then I served them with the silverware wrappers
I wrapper black utensils in a red napkin and then attached these super cute silverware wrappers
around them! Perfection!
The drink wrappers were designed by a few different people. I like to add a variety of different designs to give the party more dimension rather then just getting everything from one shop.
The juice labels can be found here
The powerade labels can be found here
And the water bottle labels can be found here
For the ceiling I hung streamers and 3 stings and twisted them to make the ceiling covered and look more whimsical. I also blew up some balloons and connected them with fishing string to create a balloon garland!
Thank you so so much for Life Is Bluthiful for taking them amazing photos and for capturing my little boys day perfectly!
I may be a sweaty mess from hosting 40+ people in my house on a 110 degree weather day but everything is worth it for this special little boy of mine! Hope its a day he will remember forever!
