[Boy Party] Skateboard Birthday Party!

By  | Last Updated:  

I love today’s skateboarding themed boy’s birthday party! It was sent to me by Michelle of Cakewalk and she did such a great job producing a dessert table with very creative skateboard themed desserts. Michelle threw the birthday party for her son’s 7th birthday. She wanted it to be fun but to reflect real skateboard culture, so she went with the classic black and white checkerboard and added a skateboard graphic  — and incorporated his favorite color blue! The dessert table featured a birthday cake that looked like a Vans hat sitting atop an edible skateboard (LOVE IT!), plus skateboard wheel donuts, hat and skateboard sugar cookies and mini cupcakes. And what’s most impressive is that Michelle did all the desserts, printable design, styling and photography herself.


Michelle says “When they arrived they were treated to mini pizzas in custom boxes and Gatorade (or sk8r.ade).To keep them hydrated throughout the party, bottles of water (sk8h2o) were on hand! They had a blast racing down the street and jumping off the ramp on their boards and scooters.”


Guests were thanked for coming with a favor bag that read “Preston’s Party Was Off The Wall” and were filled with mini skateboards, a skateboarding 101 manual and other fun treats.

The look on the birthday boy’s face is sooo sweet! Love this photo.

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
