My baby boy turned 6 recently!
I still have a little negotiating room with him so when he said ninja party, I said how about Ninja Turtle party and it was decided!
My friend, Lora Knight
, came and took pictures all morning. I love how they came out!
She also made a quick video! It’s at the bottom of the post, so awesome!
I’m hesitant to give her a shout out because I don’t want to share her, but Nichole
helps me plan, she builds and then we follow through with the plan. The night before the party she drove 45 minutes south of her house to get my dessert, then 2 hours north to bring me printables, dessert, and the insane cake stand she made, and then continued driving 6 hours north for a funeral. She is as good as they come people, for real.
Donut Holes-S&S Donuts
*Donut shops will usually work with you to do whatever you want for no extra charge. I take my sprinkles in 2 days before and pick up morning of. Cheap, cute, gone in 2 seconds dessert.*
Cupcakes with red, orange, purple and blue sprinkles.
Twizzlers added a quick grab and go candy.
Ninja swords (pretzel rods) with sprinkles
We made ninja juice, kool aid mixed in. Going with our theme, we ordered in pizza.
Seriously, how awesome is this cake?!
Everybody got to pick their own ninja and they were delish.
made my little guy this cake stand. I was trying to explain to her what I wanted and she totally exceeded my expectations. I wanted it to look exactly like this, but didn’t think it could, and she pulls out the wow factor!
They lined up perfectly!
The kids loved getting their picture taken with the ninjas!
This picture makes me so happy.
When the thank you’s go out, they will get a copy of their picture also.
(filled with Ninja Turtle stickers)
Since the ninjas love their pizza, each kid got to take home their own 7″ pizza cookie! There were 27 kids…I was not thinking clearly.
They also got those $1 foam swords and a mask to take home.
I never know how the weather is going to be outside in January so I threw the games together at the last minute. My husband is super appreciative when I do that 😉 We played pin-the-mask on the turtle and ninja ball. It’s dodge ball, except with tennis balls and green balloons as the ninjas. I tried to make it as kid friendly as I could. The boy thing is new to me and boys are just naturally into fighting and superheroes so instead I give them foam swords and balls!
He is the cutest thing ever. He woke up that morning and it was like Christmas. He’s running around saying, “Wow mom, you’ve worked so hard! It looks amazing! Everyone, did you see what a hard worker my momma is?!” It melted my heart.
Hope you enjoyed it baby!
