Sonic Birthday Party Ideas
If you have a little gamer in your home that loves Sonic the Hedgehog, then your probably in need of some Sonic the hedgehog party supplies and some great ideas to make this party stand out. When it comes to the little blue guy he is incredibly recognizable, even among adults, so you have to be sure that you get his likeness on everything. Not to mention how you'll want to incorporate some of the fun of playing the game into the party.
You probably know who sonic the hedgehog is, and hes been around so long that you may have even played Sonic the Hedgehog when you were younger. Sonic is known for collecting gold rings, being blue and moving very fast in a tight little ball. While this may not sound like the greatest components for building a party, there is actually quite a bit you can do. You may not have the greatest craft skills or be able to draw anything but stick figures, but you can still create a great Sonic the Hedgehog party from scratch.
Sonic the Hedgehog Party Supplies Pack
If you want to speed things up and gather all the party supplies to create your theme, consider using a party pack to receive all the items for your party once. Sonic Party packs are sold in a number of places online one of them being BirthdayExpress who offer a range of party packs which include Licensed plates, cups, napkins, placemat, favors, balloons, pinata and much more.
Sonic the Hedgehog Party Invitations
The first thing you need to think about is the invitations. Because Sonic the Hedgehog is so familiar to so many people, the best idea may be to order custom made invitations. There are plenty of choices available on EBay, and most of them are simply digital files. This means that all you have to do is print the invitations from your home computer. The one featured here is great because it uses your own child's picture to create something that becomes more than just an invitation.
If you do want to attempt to make your own, you can get a little creative and make a circle invitation. Simply cut a circle and create a golden ring around the outside, either with paint or a gold sharpie. Then put your text on the inside. The golden rings are always linked with Sonic the Hedgehog so guests will not be disappointed. It is also an easy and affordable way to do your own invitations.
Sonic the Hedgehog Party Decorations
When it comes to Sonic the Hedgehog decorations you need plenty of blue and gold. You can use reds too, but the blue and gold needs to be the focus.
One great idea would be to find some cheap hula hoops and use gold spray paint to turn them into giant versions of the golden rings that Sonic collects. You can also get different sized wooden rings from the craft store and paint them gold for even more fun decorations. You can even string the blue streamers through the rings to look like the streak of blue that Sonic creates when he is in superfast mode.
Also consider printing out pictures of Sonic and placing them around your home as well for added decorations. If you find coloring sheets you can either have your child color them or let the guests at the party color them.
Sonic the Hedgehog Wall Decals
The room walls are a great place to start when decorating and one of the best ways to brighten up your party area is to use a colorful wall sticker related to the theme. This GIANT 39" wall sticker of the speedy hedgehog would be perfect for this job. Sonic even has rings around him as if he is collecting them like he would be in the game..
Sonic the Hedgehog Posters
As extra wall décor you can have your child color in Sonic coloring pages and display them around your party as extra decoration. You can also use Sonic posters available from Amazon.com which can double up as bedroom décor once the party is done.
Sonic the Hedgehog Balloons
A 39" Sonic the Hegehog mylar balloon would be a wonderful addition to your decorations. It's best used as one center balloon amongst a bunch of yellow and blue latex balloons.
These latex balloons would compliment the Sonic Mylar balloon (featured above) really well. Each balloon has a cool print of sonic on it and would blend in well with the rest of your theme,
Sonic the Hedgehog Birthday Cake
For the cake you have to be a little daring, but you can get away with making your own cake AND have it be the centerpiece of the party. Dragonflies at Dawn has a FANTASTIC tutorial on how to make your own Sonic the Hedgehog cake. The step by step instructions are perfect even for a beginner and there is only a slight chance it will turn into one of those pinterest fails you might be lamenting.
If you are not quite sure you want to attempt the gorgeous Sonic the Hedgehog cake (yes the tutorial DOES make it look easy, but it might not actually be that easy) then you can easily purchase a cake topper and save yourself the trouble. EBay has some great options for edible cake toppers and you can even personalize it with your child's name!
Sonic the Hedgehog Party Favors
When it comes to making Sonic the Hedgehog party favors, there is no a great deal of help online. If you want to go all out on the party favors, you can pick up some Sonic the Hedgehog water guns from BirthdayExpress.com. They are a little pricey but they will definitely be a huge hit with the kids. If you want to make your own you can create some fun candy labels and attach them to candy bars that you can purchase at any store. Mailing address labels can be purchased at any office supply store and then you can design your own look to them by adding Sonic's picture and your child's name. The labels can then be applied to fun size Hershey bars to create a personalized favor that fits the theme and will thrill the kids. It's also cheap and easy.
If you want some favors that are a little more involved then you can create your own gift bags. Widney Woman has this great idea for getting tons of bang for your buck. Buying blue bags from the dollar store and then filling them with homemade favors, including a custom coloring book is a great way to make all the kids happy and save some money. You can even toss in a few crayons or markers, also purchased from the dollar store. She even included a pack of Chaos Emeralds to make each child feel like a winner.
