A 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 supplies, 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!
Guests were invited to protect their brains from the zombies coming to Theodore’s party via creative invitations by Pinwheels & PomPoms.
I’m sure the invitations alone got guests thrilled about the party.
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.
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.
Margarita baked up cake pops in party colors and a cake covered in edible dirt topped off with 3D fondant toppers.
Her favorite dessert table element, and mine too, was the fondant topped cupcakes.
Check out the detailed characters inspired by the game. I bet guests thought those were so cool.
Guests enjoyed playing the game on a PC and DS. Can you imagine their delight?
Favor bags with custom tags from Pinwheels and PomPoms were filled with candy. Sounds like a perfectly sweet ending to a slightly creepy and fun party.
