If you are familiar with Maureens parties (like this boys pizzeria birthday party or ninja birthday party), you know she loves to go all out on creative details and elaborate dessert tables. However, when the birthday plans only allowed for about 30 minutes in the party room, Maureen opted for a more practical approach. She designed and prepped a few key details ahead of time to make set-up quick.
Maureen created an oversized scene setter image to hang on the wall. The laser tag gun looks amazing and the neon colors pop against the black background. Print My did the large format printing. Not only did this poster make a great backdrop for the party space, it also served as a fun photo op.
Because Maureen decided to forego a whole dessert table, she designed a colorful area for the kids to sit and eat, plus she used the center of the dining table to serve treats. A black and white striped runner covered the table and laid the foundation for awesome place settings. Each guests place consisted of a bright green plate, topped with a clear plastic favor box from Nashville Wraps. Maureen filled them with black paper shred, laser tag finger lights and a laser pointer. Each was tied with twine and a favor tag from the Anders Ruff laser tag birthday collection.
Custom wrapped, laser blue bottles of Gatorade were served with cute paper straws and zap straw flags.
Black gable boxes (Nashville Wraps) had a custom look with themed labels and a laminated luggage tag personalized with each guests name. The tags can be reused on a backpack or lunchbox, long after the party is overa great extra.
An additional cake stand held stacks of gum in laser tag themed wrappersas any mom knows, gum is a well-loved treat!
Clear glass vessels were customized with laser themed labels, then filled with candy and glow sticks. Gleeful boys filled their gable boxes with the treats.
With a last minute chocolate cake request, there wasnt time to order a custom cake, so Maureen purchased one at the grocery store for less than $15. To add a custom look at a fraction of the cost, Maureen designed laser tag themed printable cake toppers. Red gumballs around the base added a colorful contrast.
The activity portion of this party was a no-brainer: kids spent time in the laser tag arena having fun! They enjoyed wearing personalized laser tag shirts Maureen made, using Onlinelabels.com opaque iron-on transfer paper sheets and her own iron-on designs.
Maureen hit the bulls-eye with this laser tag birthday party theme, proving an awesome celebration can be portable and stylisheven in 30 minutes! Visit the Anders Ruff Shop to see more of Maureens imaginative designs.
