I’ve been building up to my son’s birthday party for a while. In August, I posted about the inspiration behind the party. Here are the nuts and bolts of the big day!
Tables were set up with wind up robots, balloons, confetti, talking robots from Robot Galaxy and robot-topped candy.
We had a couple of welcome activities set up…so the boys would have something to do as other guests were arriving. The boys loved the simplicity of a large container of Legos.
The second “welcome activity” was to decorate a banner for Tyler to keep after the party. I loved seeing the boys coloring, drawing….just being creative.
The main activity that the party centered upon…was building robots. With the help and creativity of retired (though still quite young) elementary school art teacher, Jessica, the plan was to give the boys a basic box and all the goodies they would want to create their own robo-masterpieces.
Check out the robo-results!
Next up – Pin the “batteries” on the Robo Boy.
One final activity before we headed to the table for cupcakes and ice cream…each boy colored and decorated a robot page. Jessica, then, cut the robots into thirds…turning the combined pages into a flip book for Tyler to keep.
At last, it was time to refuel the little robots. Sweet Lisa’s, in Cos Cob, CT created these adorable cupcakes.
Right after I loaded the boys up on sugar, the Transformer made an appearance…and they all went nuts.
The Birthday Boy and his robotic hero!
Before we knew it….it was time to wind things down. Each guest went home with a robot party bag, filled with a robot pencil sharpener, Ugly Doll to hang on their backpacks, wind up robot and a little candy!
My little robot slept quite soundly that night. And, so did I!
How do you like to build a party?

I love birthday parties, no matter the age, just to celebrate another year is such an honor! Are you sure that party planning is not on your repertoire, cause it sure should be!
Happy Birthday – all systems go to your "bot!"
A Flair for Vintage Decor says
Very very impressed!!! You are so creative and made such a fun b-day for your son and his friends! Take care, Caroline
Nothing robotistic about this party—you are one human machine overflowing with creativity and detail. Happy 6th Birthday to dear, sweet, happy Ty. I do believe you have extensive ideas for a book in party planning for all ages. Love, prettypinktulip mamma
You know that I pour my heart and soul into creating memorable and fun parties for my children and their friends…you are my kind of gal! What a wonderful, wonderful party! I love every detail you planned. I think I see a Lego party in my future!
Suburban Princess says
Everything looks great! I love that you didn't have lots of candy in the gift bags!
Holy Robot! I love it all…such great touches and details. I love that Ty has a book to keep and a banner. A Transformer appearance-Out of this world!!!
Gretchen O. says
What fun!!! It is way easier for me to plan a girls party than a boys, so this is one for the idea book. So age appropriate, AND it looked like fun for Mom too! Happy Birthday to Tyler! –Gretchen O.

I am with Mama Tulip! A book would be amazing…and so inspirational for us lamo mamas that are far too intimidated to take on a project like this! You amaze me!
(and Sweet Lisa's rocks…they do our children's cakes and cupcakes every year and knock it out of the park each time!)
Privet and Holly says
Very, very cute….
My son just looked
over my shoulder and
said, "Hey, I have
that pencil sharpener!"
He'll be 12 next month
and this year wants
the $ that would have
gone into a party to
go towards his gift.
So, enjoy the parties
while you can : ) !!
Love, love, love what you've done and how you decorated–very creative crafts/activities. Brava!

Oh how I wish I could still give my 26year old baby boy a robot party like this! Everything looked perfect. Happy birthday to your beautiful boy; and to you too – you were there, after all!
Super cool, Robo Mom! Love the table, the cupcakes and of course, build your own robot!!

WOW! Will not share what I did (soooooo not worthy!!) for my 9 year old's party 🙂 I will share that I went to Shutterfly and used his blowing the candles photo for the front of a thank you note, with the group birthday party photo inside upper flap, so he can write his thanks on the lower flap. It's cute and he 's not complaining (as much) about getting his notes out! xoxo, EB! HPW
