Hello, friends! I am excited to finally share this Modern Mad Scientist Birthday Party I threw in partnership with Black Twine to celebrate my son’s 9th birthday! Whether you are planning this theme for a birthday boy or birthday girl, the party blueprint is live with everything you need to make this party a reality for your little scientist! You can also see full feature on 100 LayerCake!
My son is a Science and Math lover. Lately, he’s been obsessing about The Periodic Table and doing his own research to learn more about all of its elements. It’s pretty amazing to see how passionate he is about it.
This Mad Science theme was the perfect fit for my boy. I was so thrilled to plan and execute this party he has been asking for so long.
Selecting the perfect invitation
We set the theme with a fun & unique invitation suite complete with top secret acesss, lab cards and badges.
No Mad Science party is complete without a white lab coat and safety goggles for all the concoctions the little scientists we will be experimenting. If the budget permits, you can gift your guests with one of each.
Setting up a cool Kids Tablescape
For this theme, I planned a very clean set up with a modern feel to it. As a fun and easy party decor, I created molecule balloons that were hung from the ceiling using mini balloons and embroidery hoops. I simply loved how they turned out and how they added such an eye-catching detail to our tablescape.
The modern stack stools in different colors also helped adding that modern feel to our party set up as well.
Choosing the perfect party sweets
A birthday cake that perfectly brings the party theme to life is always a great idea. How cool is this Slime Periodic Table inspired cake design?
Acrylic toppers have been a popular and fun way to spruce up simple party treats. These beaker and molecule toppers added that special touch to our simple cupcakes.
Incorporating the perfect partyware
These cool Science Paper Plates were the cherry on top to the kids tablescape. Pair them with fun paper cups and acrylic drink sticks to complete the look.
Prepare a hands-on activity
Keep the special guests busy with a fun hands-on activity. Set up a ‘Build your own molecule’ activity station by making available printable molecule cards, gumdrops and toothpicks. Promise it will be a big heat among the kids!
Send guests home with awesome party favors
Every special guest deserves special take-home favors. Send them home with awesome periodic table element crayons in bucket favor containers. Don’t forget to include each guest’s All Access cards to remind them of such a great birthday experiment!
Setting up a Photo-Op Station
Having a special spot for guests to have fun taking photos during the party is a great way to create a memorable experience for the guests. We built a giant beaker balloon mosaic using a pre-made kit. How cool does it look?
Little sister couldn’t help it but joining the fun!
I really hope you enjoyed this Mad Scientist Party, friends!
