The Ultimate Guide to Holding a Bluey Themed Party
For Australian kids, few TV shows can compare with Bluey. Bluey and her adorable dog family has won the hearts of families all over the country — and it’s easy to see why. With its clever, sensitive depictions of modern family life along with its endearing characters, it’s perfect for kids and parents alike.
If your son or daughter is a big Bluey fan, you may be considering throwing a Bluey themed party for their next birthday. In this guide, we’ll be covering everything from decorations to food, so that your Bluey themed party goes off without a hitch.
Bluey Party Food
No party is complete with some tasty snacks. With a little extra effort, you can make party food that matches your Bluey theme. You could serve Aussie themed treats like Lamingtons, Fairy Bread or Mini Pavs. To coordinate in with your colour theme, Layered Jelly's and Chocolate Spoons are my Favourite no-bake, no-fuss party recipes.
"Cheese & Crackers" and "Bum Worms" (lolly snakes) make clever pun-inspired treats from the hit show. If baking isn’t your strong suit, our party set comes with chocolate labels and stickers, which are perfect for decorating your party snacks and cake table.

Bluey Birthday Cake
Depending on your budget and baking skills there are plenty of options to create an Amazing Bluey Birthday cake that your child will love. You could hire a local cake maker or if you choose to take on the project your self you could try one of our no-bake, no-fuss cake hacks and add a Bluey figurine on top. Another cost effective idea for larger celebrations is icing a plain slab sponge from your local bakery with bright blue icing. To this you could add a cake topper, sprinkles, lollies, candles or bluey toys which I'm sure would be much loved by your child after their big day!
