A Ghostbuster Birthday Party!

My little man wanted a robot party for a year, then two months ago it turned into a Ghostbusters party. If you know anything about my husband and I, we say Yes And like a boss! Here’s the evidence. Granted, I put down the camera and enjoyed the party, but I got a few photos before that happened.

I printed the ID’s and ordered badges in bulk for cheap.

How amazing is this box creation?!

If it’s a Ghostbusters Party, you gotta have Twinkies. “That’s a big Twinkie.”

Of course there was so much more food besides pizza and Twinkies, but I neglected to take photos of the veggie platter, lentil bruschetta, assortment of crackers, guacamole and chips. Oh and of course we had beer and wine!

The Ghost Trap was filled with balloons containing pieces of candy. The ghosts escaped and the kids had to pop the balloons, stopping the ghosts! A candy reward is always helpful!

Stop those ghosts!

30 minutes later we used the Ghost Trap again. This time to catch ghosts. We ordered plush ghosts online, the kids lined up and, one by one, blasted a ghost that zip lined down to them into the ghost trap. Of course each kid got to keep the ghost they captured.

Gift bags had slime, ghost stickers, and ghost poofs (marshmallows).

We ordered a Costco cake and a sugar image topping from Etsy. The number 5 Ghostbuster candle was a great touch!

Our parties are ridiculous and fun and amazing. The joy on my kids faces, the imagination and love that go into planning and executing it, the bonding my husband and I have in the process… well, we love it! Theme parties have a fun impact and if planned right, are a fraction of the cost most kid venue parties are. This party was certainly one of a kind! Happy 5th Birthday Crosby, you’re dad and I will turn any cardboard box into a playful adventure with some duct tape and imagination. We love you kid!
