Shadow The Hedgehog Birthday Party

Party Recap

My kids always seem to hone in on a specific character from their favorite show that they want to build their birthday around - this time it was Shadow from Sonic The Hedgehog! I loved working with these colors and felt it was very appropriate for an 8 year old without feeling too mature.

Given we are in quarantine, we celebrated as a family of four, but that didn't stop me from styling this event like it was for a party of 40!! A backdrop complete with a yellow balloon ring, metallic red plates and straw toppers, a Shadow centerpiece and Shadow topper were all highlights of what my son deemed - the best birthday yet!

    Hi! Thank you so much! I actually used a dollar store kid hula hoop and wrapped pairs of 5" balloons around. Then used hot glue to fill in the gaps! I hope you give it a try!!

    Thank you so much! I actually printed off a 20x30 image and glued it to a 20x30 foam board. Then I used a craft knife to cut out the image. I used hot glue to attach it to the balloon ring. I hope that helps!!

    This is beautiful. My soon to be 4 year old is asking for Shadow theme decorations. I am having such a hard time finding anything. I was hoping you could share the links to the toppers and banner, please. Thank you in advance.

    Hi! It is a DIY, but I'm working on creating a printable party package set for my Etsy shop (Hudson Grey Events)! I should have something in the next couple weeks.
