A Boy’s Plants vs. Zombies Birthday Party

By  | 

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!
