A Boy’s Plants vs. Zombies Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

A boy’s Plants vs. Zombies birthday party theme is perfect for the boys in your life who are in love with playing this video game!  As children get older, party decorations and dessert tables sometimes take a back stage to the activities.  Margarita Elafropoulos, of Party Inspirations, enjoyed honoring her son’s love of the game Plants vs. Zombies by putting together a simplified, but still hugely impactful dessert table.  As a “mature” 11 year old, Theodore was less interested in all of the traditional birthday hype, and more interested in playing video games and eating pizza with his friends.  Check out how Margarita was able to create a fun nod to her son’s favorite game while still respecting his wishes for a simple spread.  Beautiful images, captured by Little Rag Dolls, show all of the mostly cute and slightly creepy details!

Because Margarita’s intentions were to downsize from a traditional full-sized dessert table, her use of a dresser was a great choice for serving up a few choice treats.  A backyard landscape provided the perfect backdrop.  Margarita made use of nearby trees to hang colored tissue fans in the party colors.
Figurines and themed treats incorporated Plants vs Zombies into this dessert table.
Small wooden cubes and shelves were decorated in faux grass and became useful displays for themed treats and décor.  I spy with my little eye an apothecary jar full of eyeballs!  Creepy, right?

A couple of other jars had coordinating candy selections for guests to choose from. Little Plants vs. Zombies labels helped reinforce the theme, as did amazing characters that were strategically placed around the dessert table.
