Pete’s birthday was last month, and I planned a huge surprise party at our house. Let me give you a word of advice: Don’t plan a surprise party for someone who is home on summer vacation when you work at home, especially when you share a car. Oh my gosh. It wasn’t like I could print something at work or run to buy poster board on my lunch break. Instead, I had to make photo booth props while Pete was in the bathroom.

Crazy stuff.

I was so lucky that I was able to order so many items from Oriental Trading for Pete’s surprise science party. If you’re planning a science party, definitely check the site out. And if you’re planning on hosting a science party, be sure to use all of my tips.

Tips To Throw The Perfect Science Birthday Party

Decorations: Any good themed party starts with the decorations. Those are what really will make it a themed party. We set out the Science Party Birthday Paper Pennant Banner out in the front of our house. Then, the tables were adorned with props from the Science Party Table Decor Kit. That kit is amazing, by the way. It comes with a large centerpiece, four smaller centerpieces, and 20 pieces of confetti. I put the large centerpiece on the table with the Science Party Paper Cups. Two of the other four were placed on other tables while the remaining two were by the games. And the confetti was on the table with the appetizers.

Food: My menu had to be something I could put together during the two hours Pete’s dad was planning to take Pete out before the party. So no slow cooker meals, nothing complicated. Instead of trying to create atoms out of cheese balls, I decided to create appetizers that I could fit in Science Party Cupcake Wrappers With Picks. For the cupcake wrappers, we made baked sausage. We took few dry hot sausage logs, sliced them thin, then baked them until they were crisp. We put a couple in each cupcake wrapper. Then, we made bacon-wrapped mini hot dogs and stuck them with the picks. We also made goat cheese and broccoli rabe bruschetta. Then, of course, we had pizza and cake.

Games: The party was in our backyard, so I set up a ton of backyard games. Oriental Trading has a ton, so I picked up ring toss, mini bowling, and ladder ball. Those two smaller centerpieces I mentioned before, I set them up by the ladder ball. I also created a photo booth. We took a piece of poster board, cut out the center, then decorated it with Pete’s name and a balloon made of card stock. I created a few props based on cartoon characters from Pete’s favorite science cartoon, then added them to a basket with Science Party Photo Stick Props from Oriental Trading. People had so much fun picking a prop and taking a photo.

    It really must have been difficult to plan a surprise under those circumstances! You really did manage to plan a fun party though.

    I love the science theme idea. That’s unique. I especially loved the photo prop.
