For the clip art, I wanted something cute and not really retro looking. So I designed Mauricio's own little robot in blue with red, orange and silver as my palette. As for the rest of the design elements, I didn't want to be limited, so I went with lots of color. For the invitation I used metal CD cases as a box. I added silver gears as confetti to give them a little extra, as well as some glitter.
Now, this dessert table was a lot of fun to put together. I wanted a simple backdrop, so I used actual galvanized sheet metal and nailed them my wall. Yes, I know, a little crazy, but the hubs was really awesome and went with it. The look was completed by colorful gears and a birthday banner. Two robots completed the look of my table. One made out of cardboard boxes and the other one is an actual piñata which I made myself! A huge hit with both kids and adults!
The favor boxes were a lot of fun to make. They were filled with robot themed toys: erasers, robot rings, wind-up robots, mini grabber hands and crayons in these little containers from Polka Dot Market which I personalized.
I found some awesome ideas online for several crafts. So I created this cutlery robot out of milk and coffee cans. I also embellished a napkin holder and even hand stamped dessert napkins. Other decorative elements included signs, water and soda labels and my usual striped straws with flags.
The centerpieces are ceramic jelly bean jars that I was lucky to find at Marshall's! I created a third centerpiece with a large #5 and silver gears.
It was so much fun to create this party. Everything was perfect... The kids enjoyed a perfect sunny day at the pool and water slide, and a huge rainbow at the end of the evening. Lots of good food and sweet friends!
