A little over two weeks ago, I had a request for a Nerf party from the birthday boy himself. His mom is my husband's cousin and also one of my childhood friend from way back. However, my house is full of pink, sparkles and princesses and I don't know anything about the "Nerf" world. So I googled it and came across The Blackberry Vine whose Nerf party is pretty much being cased in this party.
Here is the invitation using Camo scrapbooking paper from Michaels and card stock from Stampin' Up! in Pumpkin Pie and Basic Gray.

The cake was made by Doreen of Drago Sisters Bakery. We also added 2 dozen mini Nerf cake darts...and thank you so much to Doreen, she just gave them to us basically free due to some confusion with our total. She made my daughter's adorable bumble bee cake last year and will most likely be creating more fabulous cakes for us in the future.

Water bottle labels and napkin rings come standard in my parties. They are very easy to make and add to the decor. Paper plates, cups, tablecloths, napkins and mini army men were all just $1 each pack at Walmart, so affordable!
Nerf Juice is actually just Sunkist. We used the orange cans as targets for the games.
We set up three stations for the kids to use their Nerf gadgets on...Target Test, Tin Can Challenge and Army, Set, Aim! The kids were very patient, shared, and took turns nicely. Of course, the birthday boy won! It is his day after all.
They also got to play outside afterwards. Nerf Wars in progress...

Yummy halo-halo treats during break time were needed before the birthday boy opened his presents and everyone had their cake.
|Happy Birthday, Sean!|
