I’m not often lost for creativity – how can I when I’m surrounded by so many inspiring creatives! But every now and then a theme is put in front of me and I’m thrown.
Today, that theme is Pokemon.
What is Pokemon anyway? All I know is that it’s yellow and millions of people are wandering around the world trying to find him on their phones. Period. The fact that my kids aren’t personally into it doesn’t help, but a quick whip around social media and asking other mums tells me it’s super popular and something I better brush up on ASAP!
So whilst I brush up on my Pokemon knowledge, I put the call out to our talented LLC vendors for some inspiration on what is clearly a popular party theme, just in case you’re like me and wondering what all the fuss is about and where to start (other than yellow)! Hopefully by the end of it both you and I will not only be able to pull together an awesome Pokemon party, but may even know a little more about the game too!
So let’s get this party started!
Pokemon Party Decorations
Apparently Pinkachu is the name of the yellow character (who I thought was Pokemon) that we so often see, and there’s a gazillion other characters with strange names like Nidoking, Clefairy, Jigglypuff and Diglett. There is no way I can learn them all, but the best part is there is lots of colour to choose from for decorating your party! Use bold primary colours as your base, and build on it with any Pokemon themed finds like balloons to help distinguish it as a Pokemon party and not a super hero party!
Pokemon Party Tableware
So far so good! Now comes the easy part, setting the table! Stick with the bold colours of the characters and simply introduce a little interest with patterns on plates and other coordinated tableware.
Pokemon Party Cakes and Desserts
This really wasn’t as hard as I thought! We all know the main attraction of the party is always the cake too, so if you haven’t done too much in the way of theming up until now, let your cake maker bring it to life!
A few finishing touches for any homemade desserts:
Pokemon Party Favours
Send your Pokemon crazed fans home with some personalised treats, ready to keep searching for more characters.
Whilst I’m officially still in the dark on how to play the game, I must admit it looks like a lot of fun and definitely makes a great party theme! Thanks so much to our vendors for making this so much easier than I originally thought – this is definitely achievable, even for a Pokemon novice like me!
