This year Big Guy wanted a Beyblade party. In case you don't know, Beyblade is the hottest craze amongst kids right now. It's all about these metal top things that battle against each other.
I had no idea what to do for this party. There were no decorations anywhere except online which I didn't have time to order. I even tried to convince my son to change his theme to a Nerf Gun Party. That worked for about a day and then he was back to Beyblade. I had no motivation or inspiration for this theme. I was struggling big time. I even watched like 3 episodes to try and get some ideas. That ended up being 1 & 1/2 hours of my life I couldn't get back. Needless to say I had my work cut out for me.
Once we decided we were going to have a Beyblade tournament I started with the invitations. I tried to play on the wording in the cartoon.
As far as the decorations I tried (tried is the key word) to make Beyblades with paper plates and felt. Then stuck them on the walls and cupboards.
Unfortunately I forgot to get picture of the table scape with the cake when I was done. But I did take a picture of the table beforehand.
I made this beyblade out of felt
In fact I forgot to get a picture of the cake but I did take one when it was in the fridge.
The tournament area that my Love and I put together.
I put these wire cube things around the stadiums to make it look like the cage fighting arenas from MMA.
The tournament rules
Each guest got a tournament lanyard when they got to the party. With these, I just found the clipart online, had them laminated, punched a hole in them and then put some yarn on them so they could go around each childs neck.
My Love and my brother-in-law has some referee shirts and refereed the matches.
The tournament begins.
It finally came down to the final 2 competitors.
After cake and ice cream we had an awards ceremony. I found some certificates online and just printed them out. Then bought a dollar strore trophy which I printed out a tag and stuck it on.
The final results.
When it was time for each guest to leave Big Guy gave them the favors that I had put together.
Each favor had a beyblade coloring book that I made by downloading coloring sheets, some crayons, a squishy hand to represent the "let it rip" saying, a medal and 2 lollipops.
