7 Quick Takes: Pinterest Edition

My son’s birthday isn’t until the end of March, so it’s technically a little early to be thinking about his birthday party. However, he is very excited to be turning 7 this year and has been talking about since CHRISTMAS! He is dead-set on wanting a Transformer’s themed birthday party and wants his guests to dress up as their favorite Transformer’s character. (His is Bumblebee.)

I have no clue on how to pull off a Transformer’s themed party, so I headed over to one of my favorite places: Pinterest. They didn’t have much but I did find some interesting ideas. Many of them were for a 5 year-old, but I think I can make them work for Andrew.

Like these cool invitations via Mom’s Happy Place:

And this cool looking cake via Meredith Snyder:

These party favors are cute, if not a little too young for Andrew, again via Mom’s Happy Place. I think I can put something together similar but, we’ll see. I’m not the most creative person. Hence the need to go to Pinterest for ideas!

I’ll probably have to find some paper products similar to the ones posted by Cheryl Lucas.

Not on Pinterest, but on Pizzazzerie.com, I saw some good ideas for the food…

The room posted here via Holly Anfang, can’t be done at my house, but it does give some decorating ideas.

One think lacking on Pinterest is Transformer games and/or crafts to do with the children. I did find these ideas on ehow-com. And I did find this site with some ideas that I should be able to adapt to Andrew’s age group.

If you have boys and any suggestions on pulling off a Transformer birthday party (or don’t have boys but still have ideas!) please share. I could use all the help I can get!

      That IS impressive! I’m hoping I can get my sister to make the Transformers cake, otherwise I’ll have to give it a try and well, let’s just say the cake may turn out interesting. LOL!
