Skylanders lends it's self really well to a party and the logo is so easy to personalize.
I don't have a lot of spare time these days so when it came to creating a personalized logo for Alan's party I took the easy route. Well in all truth the easiest route would have been paying someone on etsy to do it for me, but I am a can't stand to pay someone to do something I can easily do my self... like house cleaning. I have been trying to master the art of cleaning my house for years, but I suck at it so I think I need to start paying someone to do it, but a little image manipulation on the computer is easy.
I just downloaded the image and then opened it in picmonkey. Then I used there stickers feature to cover up the word "GIANTS." I just matched the blues as best I could. And the typed in the words. It took less than 5 mins and Alan thought it was awesome.
The new improved logo was used through out the party. First I used it for the invites by just typing the words right on there, once again in picmonkey.
I also used the logo to make this super cool vintagey Skylanders tee. The key to the vintage look is that I used Silhouette heat transfer for light colors. That aloud the grey to show through and the colors to look softer.
And just to make sure I used it as much as possible, I also used the logo on the water bottles,
front door welcome sign,
and cake topper
For the cake I just had to make a portal. It was really easy and nice that I could just top it off with a few I Alan's favorite guys.
For the rest of the decor I used canvas drop cloths on the tables and green crepe paper as the runner. Then I got balloons in all the element colors (I had planned to use a silver sharpie to draw the elements on each of the balloons, but I have a newborn... she likes to be cuddled.) I also made a large poster with all the skylanders grouped into there elements, but didn't take a picture of it. Oh well.
And then to top it all off we just put skylanders out everywhere.
Ta da Skylanders bliss.
