    Transformers Birthday Party

    Transformer's Birthday Party

    Today I want to share with you the super fun Transformers Birthday party that we did for our middle son’s fourth birthday! 

    Typically, I don’t like parties to be so literal. What I mean by that is that I’m not a huge fan of buying all the pre-fab character balloons, backdrops and plates. I like the try and get more creative, incorporating colors and overall themes when it comes to specific character parties (see my daughter’s Frozen Ice Party, as an example).

    But when it came to Transformer’s, it felt like it was ok to be literal and embrace all the characters, especially considering my son already had so many. Also, being near the end of summer, just after our vacation and right as we were getting ready for back-to-school, I quite honestly didn’t have a lot of time nor energy to spend on going “all out.” 

    I visited my local Party City and their stock just amazes me! While they had loads of great options, I decided to only get a few items to really help set the theme of the party. The backdrop, tablecloth, cups (that I used the party favors) and face masks (which unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of) and a few helium balloons were what I purchased. 

    For the rest, I turned to Pinterest. I want to share with you the few things that I found. While trying to stay to a tighter budget (we had just come back from vacation), I scoured the web to find some high quality, yet free items to enhance the party.

    I found this amazing cake stencil to make a pair of Rescue & Auto Bots cakes for the party. I would say, this was the highlight of the party. Printing off the stencil, then tracing it onto sugar sheets and then cutting them out was all it took make these cakes. Ok, well that process was actually long and tedious but it was worth it when I saw the look on my son’s face!

    Next I found these awesome pop can printables of the rescue bots and autobots! The blue turned out to be way more purple, but time didn’t allow for me to get really fussy about it. It also didn’t fit the entire pop can…but that was ok too. Still looked awesome and did I mention, they were free?

    And the final freebie I found were these water bottle printables. It really doesn’t take much to add a little bit of extra detail to a party. And if you spend a little bit of time doing research online, you can usually find some great quality products for cheap or even free.

    For the menu, we had: corn dogs, tossed salad, macaroni salad and farm fresh corn. For the drinks, we had pop, water and color-coordinating Kool-Aid drink pouches for the kids. For dessert, we had the two cakes and some watermelon! For party favors, I made homemade popcorn and filled the Rescue bots cups and then wrapped in cellophane bags!

    For the activities, we ended up outside because it was such a beautiful day. Our friends brought over their bouncy castle and we set up a slip n’ slide and the kids all had a blast. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of that!

    And there you have it! Our Transformer’s Birthday Party! It really doesn’t take much effort to take your party from drab to fab…just a little bit of creativity, research and effort!

    I love your tips and tricks for throwing a great birthday party! My four year old would love that, too! 🙂 And the party favors are a stroke of genius, especially since it isn’t filled with tiny toys!

    What a fun party! I love all the Transformer touches and the menu sounds amazing! Great pictures too; I find it’s so hard to get party pictures when there are excited little boys running around!

    I know this is an old post, but I’m hoping someone can respond. I’ve never used sugar sheets before — do you just place the cut-out pattern on top of the iced cake, and that’s it?

    The party looked amazing!

      Yes. It takes a little time but the icing will set and stay on top of the cake. Hope this helps!
