Robots have long fascinated children of all ages…whether inspired by beloved robots in film or fun mechanical toys at home; this is certainly a theme with a number of possible design directions. We hope our ideas inspire your next party or celebration!

As guests entered the party, they were greeted with this fun robot standee holding a bunch of balloons in the party’s primary colors; orange, white and silver.

For our dessert table, we were inspired by the robot images found in the party’s décor package and these fun robot pinatas. So, we created our own robot image using turquoise paper plates. The backdrop was created using ¼" plywood as a base and a roll of metallic corrugated silver paper. The turquoise paper plates were hot glued onto the corrugated paper in the likeness of a robot. To make the image more realistic, we added eyes, a mouth and antennas using colored plates, scissors and a 3" craft punch.

To continue the robot’s coloring as if an extension of his body, we draped a turquoise paper table covering over our black tablecloth base. And to bring in more of the silver coloring used in the seated tables, we draped the front of our main table with silver tassel garland.

The highlight of our dessert table was this amazing gears cake pulling in all of the party’s primary colors. Vanilla cupcakes with white buttercream icing were dressed up with "Happy Birthday" cupcake wrappers and these fun robot ring toppers, which doubled as a party favor.

Cake & cupcakes were served on robot dinner plates along with silver forks and orange napkins that we displayed in galvanized cups dressed up with a little paper and ribbon as a fun DIY. Party Tip: when holding parties outdoors, use containers to hold and display napkins to prevent them from blowing around!

Guests also snacked on individually wrapped bags of "Nuts & Bolts" aka Chex Mix with fun personalized toppers and "Battery Cells" aka Mike & Ike’s candies.

Seated tables were draped with turquoise paper table covers and a roll of this super fun silver cracked ice. Centerpieces were robot pinatas which also doubled as a party activity. And for added color, we used these personalized placemats at each seat with the phrase, Happy Birthday. Party Tip: to keep placemats from blowing around during outdoor events, simply line the back of each with double sided tape.

Guests took home these fun DIY favor bags created using a white bag as a base and added pieces of card stock and custom 3" favor tag stickers reading, "Thanks a bot"! The bags were filled with fun treats and adorable robot finger puppets.

Thanks a BOT for reading our post and we hope you found some robotic inspiration for your next event!
