Yes. You read that right. This post is going to be less recipe…and more inspiration! I have pictures and ideas for you from a party my husband and I threw…just for ourselves. For date night!! We both grew up watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (me occasionally, him religiously! ;)). I know there are some fellow grown up nerds out there rejoicing. But…maybe you aren’t crazy about cartoons…but maybe your kids are! Here are some super fun things you can do either for a party with your friends, a great date night idea, or just a fun way to make a week night seem like the best thing ever to your little ones! Also…feel free to take my ideas for TMNT and customize them to whatever themed party you want to enjoy!
Wanna see what we did? Now…I am not a pastry chef, so don’t laugh at my efforts. We just wanted to have fun 😉
Obviously most important is that you get a big ole New York style pizza!! If you have a Cam’s Pizzeria anywhere near you, GO THERE! That is where I got this beautiful MONSTER! Ugh…my mouth is watering…definitely going to have to have pizza again for our next cheat day!
Next? The ninjas of course!! Make a batch of your favorite cupcakes and frost with green frosting. (If you can’t find green, grab a tub of white and some green dye!). Then grab those tubes or can of colored frosting that come with multiple tips…you can get them in the baking section of any grocery store. You need AT LEAST red, orange, blue, purple, white…and a tube of black for the little details! Use the flat, wide tip for the bandanas, and a round tip for the white of the eyes, etc… Aren’t they fun?!
Now, the ninjas need somewhere to hide, so a good idea is to provide…
The sewer!! I did just a standard sugar cookie. I used a tub of white frosting, and had the black gel dye (usually they come with instructions on how many drops to use for different shades of gray!) Feel free to write “sewer” in black to make it look more legit…I just ran out of the black haha!
And we can’t forget what started it all…
Toxic ooze! Yeah baby!! Super easy…I got small plastic “mason jars” at Wal*Mart and filled them with lime jello…then made construction paper labels!
And there you have it! A super fun, super tasty, super cheat-day themed party!
Yeah baby…talk about wholesome haha!!
What a feast!! We devoured this while watching the old movies, and ended the night by going to a late showing of the new movie when it was in theater!! Maybe you can plan to throw one of these parties when it comes out on DVD, and surprise your family and/or friends!! What’s your favorite theme for parties?!
