    Where can I find the stencils and drawstring back packs for the craft? I would love to make these for my nieces TMNT themed birthday party.

    I was wondering the same thing. It does say they were iron on but that is the only detail.

So excited to share my son Malik’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party! Let’s rewind back to September 2012. Malik was watching Saturday morning cartoons and saw a commercial for the new TMNT cartoons. He then turned to me and said “Mama, I want a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party for my Birthday”. In my head I’m thinking “Wow, he’s an early planner like his mama. A chip off the ol’ party planner’s shoulder”. Then he continued, “I think everyone will want a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Party so I want to have one. It’s going to be Epic”. I actually stopped sipping coffee at this point and laughed for probably a solid 3 minutes. LOL, He’s such a trend predictor. So his 6th birthday party {that’s a good 7 months away} needs to be Epic & have lots of Turtle Power.

I was so excited about this theme! My hubby & I grew up on the old school TMNT cartoons. I even remember the show where they tried to make the turtles “real” by having guys wear costumes. I digress. It became the question of which route do I go? The edgy new turtles or the adorable old school turtles? So fast forward to April 2013 – Malik had his Epic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party, with both old school turtles references & new school turtles. Best of both worlds.

Tablescape
My son loves pizza and well Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles love pizza so naturally I had to add the pizza element in thus “Malikangelo’s Pizzeria” was born. The apple green plates fit so perfectly with the green linens & apple soda. A “shell-tastic” muslin drawstring pouch held the most adorable stamped cutlery from the Sucre Shop. I just love how adorable the forks are. Hobnail vases filled with orange & yellow ranunculus and finished with a sewer cap pizzeria sign made the perfect centerpieces.

Dessert Table
Keeping with the Pizzeria theme, I wanted the dessert table to feel like you were in the sewer. I found the perfect brick fabric that served as the backdrop. Glittered PVC pieces came together to form a really cool looking sewer pipes. The first thing that catches my eye is the amazing cake! Two amazing vendors came together to create straight up gorgeousness. Brenda from Sugar High Inc is such a talented artist. She created the huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake topper. Amazing right? Kathi from My Sweet Things made the delicious & equally adorable ombre petal cake. Intricate TMNT cookies from Firefly Confections were incredible. The Marshmallow pops, created by Alejandra from the Marshmallow Studio were the hit of the party. I just loved the adorable little chocolate covered oreos with turtles on top. The dessert table also featured: pizza sugar cookies, oreo pudding cups, ooze push up pops {aka lime jello}, chocolate turtle lollipops and cupcakes with amazing fondant toppers.

Craft Activity
I have to have a craft at each one of my parties. What better craft then to decorate a little green backpack? Thank You to Mariah from Giggles Galore for helping me brainstorm & suggesting the craft at Blissdom. The little backpacks had shell stencils ironed on to them so the kids then brushed on the fabric paint, peeled off the stencil then added their own touch. It was really cool to see all the different backpacks the kids created.

Additional Activities
In addition to crafting the kids had such an amazing time on the Inflatable Obstacle course. There may or may not have been a few parents sprinting through it at the end of the party. That may or may not have been me.
We ended the perfect party with a Ninja Turtle Pinata  A pinata that was made by Mama. Back-story: My son came into my studio and requested a Turtle Pinata. The thought of kids with bats kind of terrified me so I began the search for a pull string pinata  Unable to find one that Malik & I liked he asked me to make it. So adorable how he thinks I can make anything. Challenge accepted. I think it turned out pretty awesome. There will totally be a blog post tutorial on how you can make your own pinata.

Favors
Each kiddo took home a Pizza box filled with goodies. I’m a fan of useful party favors so the TMNT coloring books, pen & stickers were just perfect. The kids also filled their pizza boxes with TMNT cookies, marshmallow pops and bottles of gumballs from the dessert table.
