I love coming up with themed food for birthday parties. Here’s what we served at Dylan’s Party.
I used Martha’s recipe for nuts and bolts. It’s super yummy and used fresh garlic and rosemary. I served the nuts and bolts at the table and also packaged them up for the kids to take home as well.
I filled this bucket with Chocolate Robot Pops. I found the mold on amazon for less the $5. They were surprisingly easy to make.
To drink, we served “Motor Oil” (Sparkling Peach Lemonade) in glass bottles with cute grey and white striped paper straws.
I always feel like I should serve my guests a real meal, not just cake and snacks. Dylan loves to cook, so we each made our own Robot Shaped Pizza. I made the pizza crusts ahead of time and then just had toppings cut and ready for the kids to top their Robot Pizzas. I think they really enjoyed making their own lunch.
I also like to have a little candy bar for the kids. It’s a fun way to add decoration to the table in the color theme and the kids LOVE scooping their own candy into bags.
Finally, in an attempt to offer something healthy at a party, I had orange slices and green grapes (plus they went with my color theme quite nicely).
