SKYLANDERS BIRTHDAY PARTY INVITATIONS
All personalized Combo Kits UPrint™ come with either a 4-Ticket or an 8-Ticket 8 1/2" x 11" Invitations PDF file. A 4-Ticket PDF file with souvenir card stubs (below) yields tickets approximately 2 3/4" x 8 1/2" each. An 8-Ticket PDF file (above) yields tickets approximately 2 1/8" x 5 1/2" each. Try laminating copy paper and hole punch your tickets to attach a lanyard for full 'party portal' access. I found sets of 12 lanyards in black or blue for $7.99 (less than 67¢ each pretax) at my local office supply store.
|This was the cake we had at my kiddos party. It's a 1/2 sheet that serves approximately 30-40 people and cost $31.99 at King Soopers ($24.99 for the cake and an extra $7 for the edible ink cake print). I wanted the 'Happy 8th Birthday Jake!' to stand out more, so I redesigned it and created some for each of the Skylanders elements. Check out the (16) personalized Skylanders Photo Cake Prints I designed for $5.99 each - available at 'Skylands and Beyond'.|
|This cake (another 1/2 sheet) was made with one of the (14) INSTANT Download PDF Photo Cake Prints I designed for $3.99 each - available at 'Skylands and Beyond'.|
King Soopers will make the (12) 'Rounds' PDF into edible cupcake toppers for $8 a sheet plus the cost of the cupcakes. I paid less than $24 for 18 edible cupcakes from Kings Soopers or less than $1.34 each.
SKYLANDERS WATER (OR ANY) BOTTLE LABEL WRAPS
SKYLANDERS PARTY FAVORS, STICKERS AND CUPCAKE TOPPERS
I picked up these birthday hats and favors boxes from the $1 store. The kids really loved picking out which Skylanders hat they wanted to wear.
If you have leftover plates, cups and napkins from other parties, use them to match with any of the COLORS from the Skylanders elements (well, except pink, of course-save that for Hello Kitty!).
'Chapter 8' for his 8th Birthday to stick with the Skylanders game theme, of course!

-Skylanders Battle Mode Tourney: We had the kiddos playing Skylanders in battle mode before and after the party games and of course, they LOVED it!! Next time I plan on having a tournament bracket (best 3 out of 5 battles advances) with top winners earning prizes and/or bragging rights.
