We’ll take you behind the scenes at Septimus’s 5th birthday party so you’ll have plenty of ideas and inspiration for decorations, cake, favors and more at your next party! Keep scrolling to discover how to hit a bullseye with this super cool Nerf Gun Party!
When your son is turning five and has a January birthday, you have to get creative and find the perfect indoor space so he and his friends can run around and be boys! Luckily, mom Jessica George found the ideal indoor park with a rock climbing wall in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Greystone Recreation Center. She created a Nerf haven in the party room and the kids were able to play inside where it was warm to their hearts content! Take a look at all the Nerf-Themed party decor and food…
Nerf Birthday Party Decor Ideas
Choosing a color palette is easy when you’re throwing a Nerf party! Blue and orange are the classic Nerf colors and they look great with pops of white, green and even yellow. The main dessert table was decked out in a light blue tablecloth with an orange table runner and highlighted by this brightly colored balloon arch crafted by Jujabel.
Jujabel used these eye catching metallic chrome blue and orange balloons as high centerpieces down the tables and mixed them with the smaller balloon centerpieces that sat on the table. The high and low centerpiece approach always creates visual interest at your party and keeps guests’ eyes moving around the room.
Each place setting featured a blue napkin, orange plate, and themed cups and water bottles. We found a full set of Nerf Party Tableware here that would perfectly match the orange and blue color theme of this party!
Nerf Gun Party Food Ideas
The food and desserts you serve at a party really offer so many opportunities for creativity! Front and center on this dessert table was a super cool Nerf Birthday Cake designed by Artylicious Cakes. We love the bullseye on the top along with all the Nerf darts, don’t you?
Guests also enjoyed custom sugar cookies made by Casianna Brown Collections. The guns, darts and bullseyes here, along with the birthday boy’s initials are just perfect! And if that wasn’t enough sweetness, Mom made some amazing matching Rice Krispie Pops too!
Lunch was actually served before all the sweet treats were enjoyed! Guest were treated to homemade pizza and wings, catered by Lillian Suarez Weddings and Events. Those pizzas looks so good – I’m sure they went fast!
Nerf Gun Party Game & Favor Ideas
A Nerf Gun Party is not only fun for the kids, it’s fairly easy for mom! You don’t have to come up with a million party games or activities… just give the kids Nerf guns and darts and you’re all set! And one of the best things is that by providing the gear for playtime, you’ve taken care of party favors too! Win-Win!
We like this set of safety glasses, bandanas, wrist ammo holders and darts for two different teams or this set that comes with backpacks, darts, safety glasses and masks. You’ll also need a lot of darts for play (and decoration) and don’t forget the Nerf Guns!
I couldn’t resist sharing this gem of a picture! How cool are these moms in their Nerf gear?! I love it!!
As you can see, a Nerf Gun Themed Birthday Party is the perfect theme for a little boy’s birthday! From the brightly colored decor and cake to the table full of awesome Nerf gear the kids donned to play with, this party was a total blast and right on target!
