Ghost Buster Birthday Party

We celebrated my son's 6th birthday last July
 and I completely forgot to post it, I blame it on pregnancy brain! 
Anyway during the summer Mason was really into the Ghost Buster movie, so I wasn't too surprised when the idea came up. He thinks that it is just hilarious! So we watched the movie again to get some ideas for the party. 
Here is a peak at the invite...
There is one part in the movie where Slimer pops out of a hot dog cart with a mouth full of hot dogs, the instant I saw that I knew what we were going to be serving...
A local party/event rental store had a hot dog cart! SO PERFECT!
But is just wouldn't be complete without Slimer!
Slime Dogs!
I filled one of the ketchup bottles with green ketchup (aka: slime). Some of the kids loved it, others thought it was gross!
And you can't have a party without a dessert table anymore, so I did a pretty simple one because I wasn't feeling the greatest around the time of the party. 
Slimed ghost cake and cupcakes 
Chocolate covered oreos to match the color scheme
Marshmallow Pops

Slime jello
and ghost cake pops
 
I made silly little faces on each one just for fun :)
We also had some Ectoplasm to drink for those brave few...
I came up with a few activities that tied into the movie for the kids...
\
The kids built little Marshmallow Men out of toothpicks, various marshmallow sizes and colored them with edible ink markers.
Mason's Mallow Man!
Next was slime!
The kids loved this one! It doubled as an activity and a party favor. They got to make and color their own slime using a few ingredients. Then we put their slime in a little container with a logo to take home  later.
Favor table
Ghost trap favor boxes filled with sour gummy candies
Proton Silly String Streams
I also made proton packs for all the kids out of gift boxes and other various items. These were the biggest hit of the party!
The proton cans attached to the triggers on the proton packs so the kids could pull the trigger and out shoot the beams.
All the kids suited up and going Bustin'
Around the corner at the park lurked....
the MARSHMALLOW MAN!!! 
It was SO SO SO fun to watch the kids just attack! Silly string was shooting everywhere!
 I think they got him alright!
Well that wraps up the party for the most part. Alot of decorations and ideas were simplified or completely left out because I was just icky, but it turned out fine and all the kids had a blast! But I have to give a HUGE thanks to Jenny of Bloom Designs for all her fabulous custom work on all the party signs and labels! She was so great to work with and her details were amazing!  I hope you enjoyed a peak into Mason's 6th birthday party!

  1. Awwwww...sooooo cute!

    It's heartwarming to read this. Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, and other heroes come and go, but the 'Busters will live on.

  2. Mason is a hell of a lucky young boy, I tell you. Because this party just went off the roof, by the level of ideas, skills and passion that were put in it. You sir won a Internetz ! :)

    1. I went to Home Depot in the paint department and they have little 'trigger' things you can put on the top of spray cans that I used. They fit perfect and great for all ages to use! I hope that makes sense and helps, thanks for checking out our party :)

  5. I have done super hero character entertainment at kids birthday parties for 14 years and have been to literally thousands of kid's birthday parties and I can honestly say this looks like one of the greatest birthday parties of all time.

  7. Hi Jen!

    This is absolutely amazing! I have a 4 year old that has become a Ghostbusters fanatic and now I'm scrambling to plan a birthday with this theme. Could you please provide insight into how you made the proton packs for everyone?

  12. My friends last night my son birthday I share with you some interesting. Children LOVE bounce houses! It's great exercise and they'll be in there for hours, working off all that pent-up energy. Bouncy castle parties are memorable -- your child will remember the bounce house birthday party for his entire life.

  13. Hey I my friends I tell you something can you give me answer. Keep it simpleBreaking away from traditional flower vessels is a simple way to totally change the look of your wedding flowers -- and to get a completely unique centerpiece to boot. "Think about using Morocco-influenced urns, wooden boxes, tea cups, and vintage vases to hold your centerpiece arrangements," says Stephanie Elhayani of Seed Floral Couture in West Hollywood, CA. "And don't be afraid to mix and match. Combining flea-market finds with anything from family heirlooms to hand-me-downs will be a charming touch!"

    1. Hi Kristi! I got the slime containers on etsy, can't remember what shop though, sorry! For the lables, I found one of the symbols from google and printed them on sticker paper. The silly string can labels were custom created by Jenny from Bloom Designs - https://www.etsy.com/shop/bloomdesignsonline. You can contact her for purchase information. And the marshmallow box I purchased on Amazon. I hope that helps and please let me know if I can help out in any other way! Hope you have a great Halloween party!
