Eli's Robot Birthday Party

My in-laws were visiting over Easter and since Eli's birthday was so close to their visit we decided to celebrate with friends a bit early so my hubby's parents could be in on all the fun.
(One of the hardest things about living so far is celebrating things like this without any family, so it was nice to be able to include them.)
Eli's a big fan of robots, as I've mentioned, so thinking of a theme this year was easy. I googled robot birthday party ideas and was crazy excited about all the inspiration and ideas that I was able to find.

The best find though were these free printables found through Hostess with the Mostess. I went to town with them and they really made the party look awesome!

Our church was kind enough to loan us their building (and a bouncy castle!) so the kids had loads of room to play.

I was pretty excited to hand out the goodie bags as I silkscreened every one of the kids a robot shirt (tutorial coming soon on another silk screening method), and made each one a stuffed robot. The older kids also lucked out with robot stickers and Play-doh.
It was really an awesome day!

WOW! That looks like a fun party. I love the decorations, too.

Looking forward to learning about how you silk screened those super cute T's!
