Ninja Turtle Birthday Party Ideas

Our boy is turning 6 in a few months - yes SIX!!!  Really hard to believe but to be honest with you all, I adore planning this birthday party every year because it is always so much fun to have a backyard pool party with family and friends.

The theme that Jude wants this year is a Ninja Turtle party.  We will plan the same kind of open house party in our back yard; put up the jump house and get the pools out too.  Jude is so lucky that he has his party in the summer - it gives us so many more options!  I have been brainstorming some creative and fun ideas for the party and I am excited to share some of my ideas so far.  I am really excited for this one!!

These paper lantern Ninja Turtles are adorable!!  Such an easy project to add a ton of character to the party room.  I am very excited to have Jude see these hanging up around the house.  

Since most of the party will take place in the backyard I will be mostly focusing the decorations on the kitchen table area that will hold all the food and cake.

Adding some colorful backdrops always makes the party room look amazing.  This idea is perfect - incorporates the colors of the turtles and another easy way to have the theme flow well!


Food and Drinks:

This cake is so fun!!  The turtles are adorable and show some fun character and the pizza "topping" is great.  Any Ninja Turtle fan knows the importance of incorporating the pizza!!  I cannot wait to share this with my cake lady!!  :o)

Kids love juice and these juice jugs come in the perfect colors for each of the Ninja Turtles and kind of reminds me of the sewer lids that the Turtles use to go to the city.

Ninja Turtle Veggie and Fruit Trays. This is a must for sure.  I will be making two veggie trays and two fruit trays in the shape of Turtles!!  Love it!!!  Super easy finger food but adds so much character to the party spread!  I cannot wait to get creative!!

I usually get a little more creative with Jude's party food but I feel like pizza is a must have at a Ninja Turtle party so maybe I will just create some Ninja Turtle pizzas to feel good about what we are serving!  HA!  Another option would be personal sized pizzas for everyone but I worry about having to cook/bake them all.  


Party Favors:

Over the years I have stopped doing a bunch of party favors for our guests and instead handing them a themed cookie to take home.  I know the feeling of having a ton of small toys come home from a party and wondering what to do with them all - instead these cookies are just an extra treat for later!  I I think we will do some pizza cookies this year!  


Invitation Idea:

I love sending snail mail invites for my kid's birthdays so finding the perfect one is a big task every year.  I also like having a picture on the invite to show how much Jude has grown.  I really like this one.  Action packed and so colorful.  



I am so ready to get into planning mode for this party!!!  The countdown to June is on!!!


I would love to hear your creative ideas for any food, decorations, favors or activities for our Ninja Turtle Birthday Party!

  2. Everything you did is very nice. It looks like something a 6 year old boy would enjoy having on his special day.

  3. Really darling party ideas. When my son was little, (he's now 23) the ninja turtles were a big deal. It's so funny that they are still around after all this time. :)
