Donte's Pokemon Themed 8th Birthday Party!
My son had a Massive Obsession with Pokemon from about 7-9 years of age, so it was only fitting that for his 8th Birthday he had a Pokemon Party! This was a tricky one for me as I was not familiar with any of the characters despite their popularity over the years. So I spent a lot of time on google researching the characters to get it just right for him!
Pokemon Party Area & Setup
This Party was held in our Dining Area which opened up to a deck where the kids played all of their games. We were very fortunate to have lots of Bench and Table space to lay out all of the food and party bags.
Lots of Pokemon Banners and Scene Setters decorated the room. And the Party Kids all got a Party Bag packed full of treats and Pokemon cards to take home with them, as well as Personalised Pokemon Chocolates.
I also made a Pokemon Poke ball style Pinata from Cardboard and Crepe that the kids smashed open. They also played a game similar to Musical Chairs; where I laid out pictures of Poke balls on the ground and each time the music stopped they had to jump on a poke ball.
Pokemon Party Food
We had a 'Poke Snacks' Table with lots of treats for the Party Kids to eat.
- "Groudon's Gumballs"
- "Wartotle's Wafers"
- "Monferno's Marshmallows"
- "Sandshrews Sherberts"
- "Mewtwo's M & M's"
- "Totodile's Toffees"
- "Flygon's Fairy Floss"
And on the Pokemon Party Platters we served:
- "Squirtle's Savoury Biscuits" - Shapes
- "Charmander's Chews" - LCM Bars
- "Pickachu's Popcorn"
- "Bulbosaur's Biscuits" - Oreos
- "Blastoise's Bubblegum"
- "Charmeleon's Cordial"
Pokemon Birthday Cake
Due to my limited baking skills, Donte's Birthday cake was pretty basic. A Large round Chocolate Sponge, iced half red and half black with Liquorice & Fondant added to create a Poke Ball.
Pokemon Party Supplies & Decorations
I now have a Fantastic Pokemon range of Party Decorations and Supplies over at Katie J Design and Events. They would have come in Super handy for Donte's party. If you want to check them out, Click Here.
