PARTY DETAILS as told by Fransiska…
I had so much fun planning this Ninjago themed party for my son’s 6th birthday. He requested to have a Ninjago party months in advance. He knew he wanted a cake with all 4 Ninja and Sensei Wu figures on it. With that in mind, I started to brainstorm with my business partner, Prisca, to create something bold, fun, and with a touch of sophistication to make this Ninjago-themed party a little different than what’s out there.
We decided to go with black, red, and white as the main colors with touches of yellow. We incorporated a lot of Asian, mainly Japanese, details to the decor and to all of the personalized items; from hanging lanterns above the dessert table, Chinese to-go boxes to hold the flower arrangements on the tables, personalized Japanese bento boxes that were set on each place setting for the kids, chopstick wrappers, personalized juice boxes, and many more.
The desserts table was decorated with hanging Chinese lanterns. The backdrop was inspired from one of the dojos in the story. We wanted the desserts table to be appealing to both adults and kids, which featured green tea mousse, raspberry trifle, macarons, pocky sticks, and jasmine-infused creme brûlée. Last but not least, my son specifically requested that his birthday cake had the main Ninja characters and the Sensei on it.
To go along with the theme, a spread of sushi, noodles, and egg rolls were served on the food table. A couple of Japanese food banners were displayed, along with a few Chinese to-go box centerpieces.
SENSEI WU TEA BAR
We also came up with a tea bar idea for the adults. One of the main characters in Ninjago, Sensei Wu, loves to drink tea. So we thought it’d be perfect to serve a few different kinds of tea and Asian-inspired cookies on the tea bar. The tea bar was definitely a huge hit!
The kids were having so much fun at the jump house. Since we didn’t have enough space for any Ninja-like activities, we decided to hire a Magician/Face Painter/Balloon Artist to entertain all the kids (and adults!)
