Today I thought I would share a video game birthday party idea for those avid video game enthusiasts in our lives.
So first things first: When I plan a themed birthday party, which in this case was for my video game loving son, I look around the house for any video games, systems, or toy characters that would compliment the theme.
Aaron and I pulled a lot of his Wii games off the shelf, brought down a flat screen tv that was in another room to create a Wii / Wii-U gaming center stationed in the dining room. Along with that, he brought out his hand held gaming systems and a little Pac-Man arcade game that he had.
In the living room area we set up a retro Atari station to play those old games that I grew up with, hooked up his Xbox 360 to play Madden on the big screen, and created another station for Nintendo Wii Mario & Luigi games. Last but not least, he rolled out his brand new black and red gaming chair that he recently purchased.
He also has a love for puppetry, animations, characters and movies so I incorporated some of those elements into the decor to help make it a fun atmosphere.
I purchased simple, inexpensive, birthday plates, napkins, cups and banners at the Dollar Tree.
My darling husband baked a triple layer, orange cream birthday cake for the celebration.
Planning and preparing this video game themed birthday party was literally a piece of cake! Happy birthday Aaron!
A little side note: His birthday was July 5th, so the party was held on the Fourth of July. The added party bonus was the fireworks display the neighbors were putting off next door. ;) His birthday party went off with a bang!
