Toy Story is one of the most popular kid’s movies. Kids just love Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the other fun characters. This fun Toy Story cake is amazing and even if you decide not to try and recreate it, perhaps it has given you some ideas for making your own cake. To be sure the fun goes to infinity...and beyond, you'll also need some great decorations, food, and fun favors to insure that your Toy Story party is a rip-roaring success.Party Decoration Ideas
You can choose to focus on a particular character from the movie or you can incorporate all the fun characters. To decorate for the party, Toy Story themed wall clings are a perfect option, which you can easily purchase online. They are extremely easy to apply to your party room walls and when it's all said and done, they’ll peel right off without making a mess or damaging your walls. In fact, you could easily transfer them to your child's room walls to remind him or her of their wonderful party. Along with the wall clings, look for big Toy Story posters or some party banners to add to the festivities. If you have Toy Story toys, add them around the party area to add to the décor.Party Food Ideas
For the food, consider making up some green alien cupcakes to look like the cute green aliens that are in the movie. Look at some online printables to get inspiration for the cupcakes. Not only will the cupcakes look great on the table, but they can double as party favors too. Make enough to send some home in cupcake boxes as a fun Toy Story favor. Toy story cookies are sure to be a huge hit with the toddlers as well. At the end of the party, send home some Toy Story coloring books or puzzles as favors. Of course, if you're short on time, you can always purchase pre-made goody bags to hand out after the party so you don’t have to put together the favors yourself.
