How to Throw a Pokemon Birthday Party For Your Child


Do you have a youngster who loves Pokemon? Does your child love watching the television series and playing the Pokemon card game? Maybe your youngster loves to dress up as popular characters or has a bedroom full of Pokemon stuffed animals. If your child is Pokemon-crazy, you might want to consider throwing a Pokemon-themed birthday party this year. Throwing a Pokemon party doesn't have to be stressful or overwhelming, nor does it have to be expensive. In fact, a Pokemon party can be a wonderful way to show your child how much you care about his or her interests and that you want the party to be memorable.



 Before the party, you'll want to send out Pokemon-themed invitations. This will let your child's friends and relatives know about the upcoming event. Make sure to mail the invitations at least two weeks in advance and ask for RSVP's. To create your own invitations, you'll need white poster board and colored markers. Cut the poster board into 4-inch circles. Use a red marker to color the bottom half of each circle red. You'll then want to use a black marker to draw a straight line in the center of each ball. This will divide the red and black halves and give your card the appearance of a Pokemon ball. You can write the party information directly on the back of each ball. When you're finished, hand-deliver the invitations or place them in over-sized envelopes to mail. Make sure you check with your post office before mailing the cards, as oddly shaped letters can sometimes require extra postage.



One of the most exciting parts of throwing a Pokemon party is the food. What foods do your child's favorite Pokemon like to eat? Grab several colorful bowls and fill them with matching foods. For example, get an orange bowl and fill it with orange chips or crackers. Label it with an orange Pokemon's name. You could mark is as "Charmander Food" or "Charizard Food." 


Another option would be to take a white party tray and paint the bottom half red. Use a black marker or black electrical tape to create a Pokemon ball divider line in the center of the tray. Place red foods in the bottom half of the tray and white foods in the top half. What kind of food could you use? Watermelon, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, white chocolate, or white candies.



No birthday celebration is complete without a cake and your child's Pokemon party is no exception. If you're not the cooking type, you can simply buy a regular sheet cake at your local bakery and purchase a few Pokemon figurines. Place them on the cake and you're good to go. If you prefer to make something yourself, you can bake a round cake and decorate it with white frosting. Use blackberries or chocolate chips to create a divider on the cake. You'll then slice up strawberries very thinly and place them on the bottom half of the cake to create your Pokemon ball cake.


Party Bags

Don't forget to give each child who attends the party a gift bag. You can use plain brown lunch bags to give each child their treats. Decorate the bags with Pokemon stickers and fill them with snacks, treats, and small toys. Want to make the gift bags really stand out? Consider giving each child a small Pokemon figure or even their own Pokemon card. If you're crafty, consider making each child a personalized Pokemon card with their own name and picture on it. They'll love the gift and will remember your child's party for years to come.
