She may have been born in the 1930’s, but Betty Boop is more popular today than she’s ever been. If your daughter’s birthday is coming up and she’s a Betty Boop fan, why not consider a Betty Boop theme birthday party?
Betty Boop Birthday Party: The Invitations
I found two Betty Boop party invitations. One is rectangular shape with Betty on the front and the words “It’s A Party!” The other was heart shaped with a picture Betty and her friend Bimbo. Both are available on bettyboopstore.com and sell in packs of 8 for $3. Personally, the heart shaped ones look a lot cuter.
Betty Boop Birthday Party: Party Supplies
Bettyboopstore.com has every in one place for your birthday party. Napkins, dinner and dessert plates, cups. Except the napkins, all are sold in packages of 8 for $3.25 or less. Napkins are sold in a package of 16 for $3.25. Match your paper products with red or white plasticware.
To decorate your table, use one red and one white plastic tablecloths. Then make your own centerpiece with 2-3 Betty Boop mylar balloons anchored with a red or white foil balloon weight. Balloonmaniacs.com sells a mylar heart shaped Better Boop balloon for $3. It’s deflated, but if you go to Party City and pick up one or 2 balloon weights, they’ll blow the balloons up for you.
Betty Boop Birthday Party: Entertainment
Most Betty Boop cartoons are available on DVD. So pick up a few and let the kids watch ’em. I’ve seen Betty Boop DVD sets at Best Buy, dollar stores, grocery stores, and Ebay. For some interactive fun at your birthday party, educationalcoloringpages.com lets you print 12 different Betty Boop colorings pages for free.
Betty Boop Birthday Party: The Cake
Bake an 11” x 14” sheet cake and decorate with white frosting and a red shell or star border. Betty Boop cake topper sets come with one plastic Betty figurine and four plastic lips on sticks to place in the corners. This cake topper set can be bought at craft and party supply stores or online at Amazon.com or Ebay.com. Price is around $8-$10. And if you don’t bake, just order a birthday cake from your local bakery and have them place the figurines on it.
Betty Boop Birthday Party: Favors
Pick up some Betty Boop mini tin boxes. Cartoonfansclub.com sells them for $3 or a 6 piece assortment for $15. You can put some Betty Boop costume jewelry like earrings or a necklace inside or a key chain and some stickers and maybe a piece of candy. Again, cartoonfansclub.com has a great assortment of Betty Boop items at good prices. Unlike loot bags, the Betty Boop mini tins are eco-friendly and can be reused.
