A Wall-E Inspired Birthday Party


Party Theme: A special Wall-E inspired 6th birthday. My challenge? First, to pull off a character party. Second, to pull off a character party with extremely hard to find toys and party supplies. Thank goodness for the internet. I managed to find enough Wall-E character plates, balloons, and party hats to satisfy the bugger and then turned to 505 Design + Paperie to work her magic on the party printables. The goal was to create a Wall-E inspired party without overdoing the character aspect of it. We centered the party around the newly sprouted green plant Wall-E finds. It is the first proof of sustainable life on Earth and the main theme of the movie. If you haven't seen it, it's a cute movie with a great theme... there's even a little romance.

Colors: Aqua/Lime - modern, minimal, and outer space-ish

Desserts: The Axiom serves Sep-Tua-Centennial Cupcakes in a Cup, so of course we did as well. 
We also had Rice Crispy Trash Cubes, Axiom Brownies, Dirt Pie Push Up Pops with fondant sprouts, Wall-E, Eve, and Earth Cookies 

Favors: Plant Samples (sunflowers) for the kids to take home and plant, Robot Arms, and Eve Lollipops

Activities: Robot Trash Pick Up Game and Photo Booth with Wall-E. 

A big THANK YOU to the fabulous vendors who made Wall-E and Eve come to life...
these women constantly inspire and amaze me with their talents and creativity. 

Styling & Photography: Crossing the Bugger-Dixon Line
Wall-E Party Printable Collection: 505 Design + Paperie
Fondant Sprouts and Fondant Cupcake Tags: Edible Details
Brownie Toppers: Make. Bake. Celebrate
Shimmery Gumballs and Sweet Pods: Polka Dot Market
Eve Lollipop Favors: Whimsical Boutique
and Samantha's Sweets for the Rice Crispy Trash Cube dessert idea : )

  5. Jenny, you ROCKED THIS!! I remember when you first started pinning Wall-E ideas and I was so curious what you'd end up doing with it. Every detail is perfect and so creative!

    Would you mind sharing more about how you made the backdrop? {Brilliant idea to re-purpose it as the photo booth backdrop, by the way!} Was it a printable file that you had enlarged at a copy store? Same with the Wall-E silhouette? I've always loved the look of backdrops like that, but don't know how to actually make one. I'd love your tips!

    {P.S.--I pinned it all, of course!}
