Science Class Boy’s Birthday Party

By  | 

Beakers and test tubes and flasks, oh my! Hypothesis: Your little scientist will absolutely, totally, and completely love this science-themed boy’s birthday party, by Oleander and Palm. Jeran designed this fabulous party with great party supplies for her son’s 10th birthday, with the help of her biology-teacher husband. Vintage schoolroom decoration ideas, plus an unexpected color palette, multiplied by real science experiments, to the power of awesome themed birthday cake, equals an unforgettable event! Grab your lab coat and get ready to record your observations—this party is sure to be a blast!

A vintage frog dissection pull-down poster and chalkboard-style pennant banner form a fantastic dessert table backdrop, giving the party a classic classroom feel. A polka-dot tablecloth and spherical candies make me think of fizzy flasks and bubbly beakers; using flasks and beakers as serving ware is a stroke of genius! Simple candies and classic white serving ware look hotter than a Bunsen burner on dessert pedestals of varying heights and in shiny aluminum pails with chalkboard accents. A microscope is a great centerpiece decoration, and it was used later for party activities!

Jeran put together some marvelous mad science treats to fuel little scientists’ discoveries. The white chocolate “lab rats” on a stick might just be my favorite boys’ party food of all time! I love the way the bright-colored gumballs, Lemonheads, and Sixlets candies brighten up the table in unexpected hues of teal and yellow. Also on the “mad science menu” were “Atomic Pops” (Oreo truffles on sticks), “Petri Dish Delights” (gummy worms in Jello, served in culturing dishes), flask-shaped cookies, and Sixlets candy-filled test tubes—which looked authentic in a real test tube rack!

Once everyone had enough “mind fuel” (aka candy) and a lab partner, the birthday boy’s biology teacher dad led partygoers in scientific observations, like examining cheek cells under a microscope; experiments, like creating borax-based goo; and even a real dissection! I can just imagine the gasps, squeals, and giggling. There is just nothing better than having family be directly involved in a child’s birthday party!

Boy's Mad Science Birthday Party Favour Ideas

Every guest took home a hand-stitched party favor bag filled with “nerdy notions” like a test tube of shiny goo, nerdy glasses, and a magnifying glass for future scientific observations.

This science themed boy’s birthday party is hard to beat for creative ideas, fun party activities, and amazing party treats! If you’re as wowed by it as I am, check out Oleander and Palm on Facebook.
