My son recently became enamored with Yo Gabba Gabba, so we decided it would make a great theme for his birthday party. For the cake, I made a rainbow cake (recipe here). This blogger recipe uses diet Sprite to mix with the cake mix, but I just followed the box directions. I also used butter instead of oil and whole eggs versus egg whites.

Before going into the oven. Colorful!


It was a bit hectic, so I didn’t have time to take a pic after they were taken out of the oven. Below is a pic half-way through cutting it at the party. It was a hit!

Not the best pic. I'm a party hostess, not a photographer.


These next few pics were the food and craft table. We had finger foods and dips that matched the color of each Yo Gabba Gabba character.

Kids could choose what Yo Gabba character they wanted to make, with one already made to guide them.


Plex dip. You can't see little Plex there...again, I'm not a photographer!


Brobee veggie dip. Same bad angle, can't see the little figure there.


Muno sauces


There's Foofa!


And Toodee

The Yo Gabba figures were cupcake toppers and the colored sheets underneath were craft material we got from Michaels. My DH spent a long time putting the crafts together. We both thought maybe one kid may be interested in doing it because it’s kind of a crapshoot with kids aged 2-5; maybe they’ll be interested, maybe not. But the craft was a hit too!

Some details were a little off for us, but overall we were happy with how everything turned out. And most importantly, the kids had fun. We’re already thinking about the theme for next year. What cool themes have you done for your kids parties?
