The Smurfs Movie Birthday Party Theme
The Smurfs are Back !! Coming to the big screen in their New 3D Smurfs Movie July 2011. With that comes kids wanting to have a Smurfs Birthday Party and I am going to give you tons of Smurftastic ideas right here !!
I am beyond excited about the New Smurfs Movie being they were one of my favorite childhood toys and cartoons. I still have a bunch of my old Smurfs Toys to this day. The Smurfs have taken on a more modernized look, but I still think they hold that same adorable charm and kids who will see them for the first time in the movie will no doubt fall in love.
You will see a ton of marketing around this Smurfs Movie in the way of New Smurfs Toys and Merchandise featuring their new looks so be prepared. And as always kids will be wanting to have a Smurfs Party Theme for their Birthdays and that is where I come in. I am going to give you lots of Ideas and Inspiration to help in the planning. So as they say “Get Ready to be Smurf’d” !!
A Quick Synopsis: Just like in the old Smurfs Cartoons the Smurfs go about their Smurfy Business in their village always on the look out for the Evil Wizard Gargamel who is always trying to find them. In the movie Gargamel locates the village and the Smurfs run into the woods where Clumsy Smurf stumbles into a forbidden “grotto” and is then followed by Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy Smurf, Grouchy Smurf and Gutsy Smurf. They enter the “grotto” which turns into a Magical Portal, because it so happens to be a Blue Moon as well, and this takes them to the present day where they are dumped out in Central Park New York. They then hook up with a married couple Patrick and Grace Winslow for some fun adventures as they try and find their way back to the village before Gargamel and his side kick cat Azrael find them. Now that sounds like fun !!Lets start this Smurfy Party off by talking about the invitations. You will find a large variety of Smurfs Party Invitations on Ebay where they have everything from Ticket Style Invites to VIP Pass Invites which are a great choice being it is a party based around the Movie. All the invitations can be personalized with your party info and a lot of sellers give you the option to print from home – so no need to worry for you last minute party planners.
Ebay Seller: EventWrapper really offers a nice variety of Smurfs Invitation Designs along with a ton of matching items to go along with them. They have matching Candy Bar Wrappers, Water Bottle Labels, Thank Yous and more…
Of course you cannot have a Smurfs Party without your Smurfs Party Supplies. There is a new line of Smurfs Movie Party Supplies that feature the Smurfs as they look today in the Movie. They did not slack when it came to this line either – you will find a ton of new matching supplies available depending on how much you want to spend. Smurfs Balloons, Centerpieces, Banners, Stickers etc…
Of course if you like the older version of the Smurfs you can find some of the Vintage Smurfs Party Supplies still floating around on EBay, but you may end up spending more to get them.
When it comes to decorating – Think BLUE, fill in with Solid Blue Balloons and Decor to save money. You can also buy some of the Smurfs Posters to hang up on the walls in your party area to add to the scene. Have fun and mix the new Smurfs Movie Posters with some of the Vintage Smurfs Posters and let the kids see how they have evolved.
Feeding the kids at your Smurf Party can be lots of fun – so much so that I dedicated an entire post to Smurf Party Food Ideas. Of course you want to keep all your normal party food available, but have a little fun and turn a lot of those treats BLUE. Your Blue Food Coloring will become your new Best Friend for this party theme.
I have gathered a lot of of Smurfalicious Ideas that are EASY to create since I am all about EASY as most of us are.
So with just some small touches and yummy recipes the kids will be well fed – Smurf Style !!
Well I also dedicated an entire post that has a long list of Smurf Party Game Ideas to help you with just that. So I have taken all the hard work out of it for you – now all you have to do is narrow down what games you will choose – Does it get any easier than that?
I call it Smurf Party Planning made EASY !!! Have I mentioned how much I love Smurfs Yet? lol
When it comes to your Smurfs Birthday Cake there are tons of items out there to help you with that. You will find Smurfs Cake Toppers, Smurfs Edible Cake Images, Smurfs Cake Pans, Smurf Birthday Cake Candles etc… It just all depends on what you are looking for and how much work you want to do in your creating.
Of course you can always decorate your Birthday Cake using Smurf Figurines and Toys you may already have on hand.
Oh, but one thing you must be sure to do and that is Color your Cake Blue – it is almost a no brainier for a Smurf Party !!
If you are like me and would prefer Cupcakes at the party than there are options for that too. One option are these FREE Printable Smurfs Cupcake Toppers I created that feature all the Smurfs from the Smurfs Movie. All you do is print them out on Heavy Cardstock or Photo Paper, Cut and tape a Toothpick or Craft Stick to the back and place into your Baked & Frosted Cupcakes. And again – Blue Cupcakes would be Smurfy !!! I did mention these were FREE right?
You can also find Smurf Cupcake Rings as well as Smurfs Edible Cupcake Toppers out there too. And again you can also opt to decorate your Smurf Cupcakes using Smurf Figurines that the party guests can take home as part of their party favors.
For your Smurf Party Favors I like the idea of sending the kids home with useful items vs. bags of candy and junk. So I would recommend sending the kids home with one of the many Smurfs Books available on the market. They are available for all reading levels and are Budget Friendly too.
Stick them in one of these Handmade Smurf Party Favor Bags along with some Fresh Baked BLUE Cookies (or See my Smurf Cookies Tutorial) – add in a Drink (bottle of Blue Gatorade would be perfect) and the party guests go home with a Great Book to read and a snack to enjoy while reading it.
I Love♥ that !!! Simple, EASY and a Party Favor you can feel good about sending the kids home with.
I hope you have been inspired by all of these Smurf Party Ideas and that you can now rest knowing the party planning is done. If you have a Smurf Party Idea you would like me to share on my blog just Contact Me.
