Ninja Birthday Party Theme

My son's birthday party was today.  I had made the cute little cupcake wrappers and toppers from my previous post, but when I went to print them, I had run out of ink!  Yikes!  The toppers printed gray rather than black ink, so I cut them out anyway and traced the eyes with black pen.  Then I used my cupcake wrapper as a template and cut black ones out of black construction paper and wrapped them with red ribbon.  In a pinch, it worked.
I also made some oragami throwing stars to use as decorations (and weapons)...
Ninja swords on the chair backs lead to some great ninja battles.  I had to take the swords away eventually though because they were getting a little too serious!  The balls in the glass container on the table are actually gumballs from Party City!  Black, Silver and Pearl!
I sewed some headbands and put some Asian symbols on them.  Each boy wore one and then took them home with them.  Oh... and they were told to dress in their ninja-wear if they had any.  They all did!  The banner says (probably barely says) "Happy 10th Birthday Adorable Ninja Son"

Word of warning.... the ninja head toppers are flammable.  See that guy in the front?
Ninjas of many shapes and sizes came to the party.  Even my husband dressed up and surprised the boys with a sneak attack which happened in the blink of an eye.  He jumped over the couch while they were watching the presents being opened and stole one of the gifts and took off with it!  Lots of excitement!!! The boys didn't even hesitate and took off after him!  They were ninja warriors and rescued the stolen gift in mere moments!  It all happened so fast I couldn't even get a picture!  With all of the cameras in the room, you would think someone could have, but no one did!

Oh... and yes, we had pizza at the party.  Pizza is Ninja food according to my son's t-shirt.

The weather stunk... so no better day for a party indoors!

Where did you get the swords for the back of the chairs? My son is obsessed with those!

Thank you! for sharing. This is such a great idea. My son has been asking for a ninja party and I had no idea where to start.
