How to Train Your Dragon 2 Inspired Boy’s Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

An inspired How to Train Your Dragon 2 boy’s birthday party makes perfect sense as a theme choice, especially after seeing the movie premiere with your talented graphic designer and party stylist mom!  Zoila Lopez, of Squared Party Printables, and her five-year-old son, fell in love with the characters Hiccup and Toothless.  Soon after, a creative party plan was underway.  Wanting to keep the party atmosphere as authentic as possible, Zoila focused on the textures and natural elements seen in the movie. You’ll love how she incorporated burlap, rocks, wood and moss into the party decorations. The invitations and paper products she designed have a worn paper look, with hand drawn details inspired by Hiccup’s journal.  Just wait until you see how Zoila styled the dessert table to bring in these same creative elements!

The venue Zoila chose was perfect for an action packed party.  Held at a local rec center, junior Vikings could roam free in a portion of the ballroom as well as on the private patio.  Guests were invited to choose a Viking helmet and then have war paint applied. Getting into costume is a big deal that adds extra thrill to an already awesome party.  After guests were properly outfitted, each chose an inflatable dragon and headed to the patio for dragon training.  Can you imagine their excitement?!

Running around “training” works up quite the appetite, and it wasn’t long before it was time to refuel with snacks, drinks and treats. The kids dined at tables Zoila styled with burlap runners and repurposed treasure map fabric.  Centerpieces were a simple DIY made from wood slabs spiffed with rocks, moss and rubber dragons.  Budget savvy Zoila reused great crates and treasure boxes from a previous party.  Place settings consisted of “metal” plates, goblets and wooden forks.

Most impressive, each plate was topped with an incredible dragon egg party favor.  Can you believe Zoila made them from foam eggs, thumbtacks and paint?  They looked amazing in clear container boxes, nestled in natural colored shred.  Printable tags cautioned little Vikings to take good care of their eggs because baby dragons were inside!

What an impressive and imaginative take on a popular movie; I bet no one wanted the party to end!
