This was fun. Way fun. Way too much fun. Okay, on with the pictures already!
I was going to buy some generic Wall-E invitations but couldn't find them in any B&M stores. These invites were a free download online. Much cuter, and since the party wasn't strictly a Wall-E party, they were perfect.
The front door. Made using a vinyl tablecloth base. I wrapped posterboard in tin foil for the head and body. Used plates for the eyes. Forks for the hair/antennae. A cup for the nose. Straws for the mouth. The rest of the details were made from craft foam and stickers.
The idea behind the balloons was that they'd fill the ceiling and create a nighttime/space-like effect. I hung stars from 8 of them (one for each guest to take home). And after I took the picture I cut the rest of the strings off. This disuaded the kids from jumping for them all night long. Lol. Next time I will need to order more balloons so they stay huddled together better.
The invitations said for everyone to bring their pillow. We laid out several blankets on the floor and the kids laids on it during the movie.
I had a blast creating robot-themed snacks:
The cupcakes sorta look like robots, don't they? Lol.
The birthday boy (7!) blowing out his candles:
The party favor idea came from none other than Family Fun. I saved and washed several soup cans. Taped the rims with electrical tape for safety. Spray painted some washers and bolts and screws and attached them to magnets to creat a robot verion of Mr. Potato Head. Inside were Wall-E coloring pages and a small box of crayons, Pop Rocks and Pixie Sticks.
Can't wait to do this one again for Drew!
