Landon’s Rescue Bots 5th Birthday


We held a Rescue Bots themed birthday party at our home for our son Landon's 5th birthday. The party featured a thematic menu with "Blades's Blades" (Veggies), "Boulder's Boulders" (Glazed Donut Holes), "Heatwave's Hot Wing Bites", "Chase's Cheese Pizza", "Bumblebee's Wheels" (Oreos with yellow centers), and "Optimus Prime Autobot Fuel" (Pineapple Orange Punch), a face painter, a bot cake, and tons of rescue bot fun!

Design Inspiration

Our son's love of Rescue Bots!  He was pretty vocal about what kind of party he wanted so we found a wonderful invitation on Etsy and everything "rolled" together from there.

Favorite Items

Definitely the cake, the face painter and the sign that Landon and I made together to hang on our front door.


Since I was unable to find a whole suite of "Rescue Bots" theme items anywhere, I had to get a little more resourceful to get things to come together. I found amazing options through Etsy and was able to put everything together with the great ideas I found on Pinterest too. I think both Etsy and Pinterest are wonderful sources, especially when your kiddo throws you a little theme curve ball.

I was REALLY worried about doing a party for a bunch of five year olds in our home and especially worried about the boredom factor.  I think I was just nervous because for our son's 3rd and 4th birthdays, we did parties at play places that made it oh-so-EASY.   Once I relaxed, put up a "pin the autobot on the bot" game, and just let the kids run around, all was good.  So, my advice would be to relax.  Cake, balloons, yummy kiddo appropriate food, and a couple of activities are all you need for a great time.
