I'm really excited to share with you my little boy's Robot Party. Ever since Mauricio turned two I've wanted to throw a robot themed party. I was finally able to convince him now that he was turning 5. And let me tell you... he was really excited and mama was thrilled! So I've been researching ideas for a couple of years now and here is what I came up with. For the clip art, I wanted something cute and not really retro looking. So I designed Mauricio's own little robot in blue with red, orange and silver as my palette. As for the rest of the design elements, I didn't want to be limited, so I went with lots of color. The dessert table was a lot of fun to put together. I wanted a simple backdrop, so I used actual galvanized sheet metal and nailed them my wall. Yes, I know, a little crazy, but the hubs was really awesome and went with it. The look was completed by colorful gears and a birthday banner. Two robots completed the look of my table. One made out of cardboard boxes and the other one is an actual piñata which I made myself! A huge hit with both kids and adults! My trusty cake designer Jovanna used my robot as inspiration and created this fantastic cake. It was perfect, delicious and the kids were mesmerized by it! We offered lots and lots of candy and desserts. Noemí from Pastry Gallery created delicious cream and mandarin parfaits, chocolated covered marshmallows, robot chocolate covered Oreos, whoopie pies. We also had the cutest sugar robot cookies by Peggy Pérez and delicious lemon french macarons by Merari Tossas. The rest of the candy were all of kid's favorites: skittles, kisses, fun size chocolate bars with customized labels, M&Ms, gumballs, sweet pop corn and jelly beans.The favor boxes were a lot of fun to make. They were filled with robot themed toys: erasers, robot rings, wind-up robots, mini grabber hands and crayons in personalized containers. I found some awesome ideas online for several crafts. So I created this cutlery robot out of milk and coffee cans. I also embellished a napkin holder and even hand stamped dessert napkins. Other decorative elements included signs, water and soda labels and my usual striped straws with flags. It was so much fun to create this party. Everything was perfect... The kids enjoyed a perfect sunny day at the pool and water slide, and a huge rainbow at the end of the evening. Lots of good food and sweet friends!
