I promised part 2 and part 3 of my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Party way too long ago. Seeing as it as been 5 months since my son’s birthday, I thought it was time to reveal the food… finally!!! (I hope you have already read my Part 1 The Decorations and Part 3 The Activities)
I think Mikey would have looked too much like Oscar the Grouch if it wasn’t’ for my fruit Rafael. Seeing as though everything was TMNT, I don’t think anyone else thought they looked like muppets. These were simple and you can mix and match any veggie or fruit to create any of the turtles. Think blueberries and blackberries for Leonardo and Donatello!
I took a little help from the bakery on the cupcakes and the small cake. I got plain green cupcakes and a plain small personal cake for Jonah. I then decorated them with picks and 2 little TMNT figures that I found at Target. My son loved it.
One lesson I learned is that I need to hire a photographer. Next year I will. I went around frantic trying to keep the party going, restocking the food and making sure all the games were running smooth that my photos really suffered. These pics aren’t the greatest, but I hope you can get the inspiration behind them.
One of my favorite activities was building personal sugar cookie pizzas. I cut out some small pizza boxes using my Silhouette machine for our guests to be able to take them home. They made them using red icing, grated white chocolate shavings for cheese, and some M&M’s for pizza toppings. The kids loved it!
I also had a candy bar with a lot of different snacks, but I didn’t take a picture of it (photographer again). Overall the food was a huge success. We had a great time eating pizza and snacking on all of the treats. After we ate we had fun with games and activities that I will share in Part 3. For now I will leave you with a sneak peak!
