Party Idea: Robot 1st Birthday

Love this? Share it!

For me, party decor and themes are a creative outlet that I love! For my oldest son’s 1st birthday I went with a robot theme. (I got to choose, because he was too little to have an opinion yet.)

Here is some breakdown:

I went with a robot theme based on these cute lunch sacks I found in the $1 section at Target. (Love me some Target $1 section) I used these for guest goodie bags and added these cute tags I found online HERE.

Goodies for guests:

I filled a plastic bag with chex mix and added the label found HERE. The cup was part of the Target finds, and the robot bubbles, tattoos, and wind-up toys were found at Oriental Trading Co.

My mother-in-law made this cute life-sized robot for the decor and for the kids to take pictures with.

The birthday banner was made with super cute robot paper from Hobby Lobby, and I used a die-cut machine for the circle shapes and letters, but you could easily find cut outs in stores, also. I hole punched through each piece and strung some ribbon through to hang.

The cake table:

The table cloth is actually a shower curtain I found at Target. I bought a few so that I could drape the guest tables, as well. I have gotten a lot of use out of these over the years, and they can be thrown in the washing machine for easy clean up!


The Cake:

This was the coolest cake ever!! I sent a picture of the robot sacks to my cake-baking friend and she created this 3-D masterpiece! The chest plate even opened up and had a single cupcake inside for my son to eat! So. Awesome.

For the Pails: I put a small piece of floral foam in the bottom of each pail. I attached pictures of my son’s 1-year photo shoot to some of the robot paper and taped them to multi-colored craft sticks I found from Hobby Lobby. I pushed the stick into the floral foam to make sure it would stand. I filled the pails with the Nuts & Bolts chex mix and they made for cute, and yummy, centerpieces!

I scattered the tables with PEZ candies and finger robot fighters from Oriental Trading as extra party fun and favors.

It was so much fun to put this party together! And, just for fun, and because I want to, here is my son enjoying his first bites of cake!
