Christy said this about planning the party- ”My son Jackson loves the video game Plants VS Zombies, where a colorful army of plants have to protect your home by shooting peas, throwing stumps, exploding, or otherwise stopping an invasion of kitschy zombies from eating your brains! I have to admit I have played it a time or two myself and it is quite fun and addicting. So when he told me he wanted his sixth birthday party to be based on the game I thought it would be a fun challenge! And so our “Plants Fighting Zombies” party theme was born!

I used bright chevron fabric, Washi tape, a tombstone Happy Birthday banner, a monogram “J”fighting plant centerpiece, and other fun zombie inspired printables to decorate the dessert table. Guests each brought home a pack of “Peashooter Peas” (skittles) to fire at Zombies and “Protect their Brainzz!” as favors.

The centerpiece of the party was the dessert table. Sunflowers are some of the most powerful plants in the fight against invading zombies! So potted Sunflowers Cupcakes took centerstage. Linda of Frog Prince Cakes & Cookies created adorable fondant cupcake toppers that look like they’re right out of the game, which cheerfully oppose the tie wearing Zombie Marshmallow Pops I created.

Other sweets served included Zombie Eyes (Chocolate Balls purchased on clearance after Halloween), Brain Juice (Green Hawaiian Punch), and some of the weapons thrown by the plants to stop Zombies in their tracks: “Repeater Peas” & “Snow Pea Peas” (Jelly Belly Jelly Beans), “Stumps” (Chocolate Licorice).

I kept the party low stress by ordering the cupcakes, and making simple marshmallow pops instead of more elaborate desserts. The kids loved it all and enjoyed seeing their favorite video game come to life!”
