Planning a Bluey party? The Bluey television series and characters have become favourites in Australian households since their ABC launch and Bluey birthday parties have become a popular choice for Aussie kids to celebrate their milestones!
These ideas will help you plan the ultimate Bluey birthday party for kids of all ages, with decorations, games and delicious snack ideas.
Bluey Birthday Party Ideas
Plan the perfect birthday party on a budget, spending just a few “dollar bucks” or splurge on a few really cool items to create a day your child will remember!
These ideas include food and decorations, personalised gift ideas and even some cool party favour ideas for the guests to take home.
But first, let’s take a moment to marvel at the creative genius that is Bluey! This animated series is far more than a cute show about a family of Blue Heeler dogs.
Any adult who has taken the time to sit down and watch an episode will know what I mean.
Chances are you’ve found yourself grinning at the subtle humour most kids miss or the completely real way they tackle some everyday parenting moments.
Yes, Bandit and Chilli are surprisingly relatable for cartoon dog parents!
Bluey Birthday Cakes & Party Food Ideas
A themed party isn’t a themed party without a super cool themed birthday cake and these Bluey birthday cakes are downright amazing!
This tall Bluey birthday cake is simple in design with blue icing and loaded with sweet treats to delight kids (and adults), including fairy floss and macarons on top. Yum! The sprinkles to decorate the cake board is a great idea too.
This B-shaped Bluey cake is quite possibly my favourite! This cake is stunning and would look cool as any decorated letter or number. Best of all, this one would be relatively simple to recreate at home!
This stacked Bluey and Bingo cake is simply too cute! And a perfect design if serving a larger crowd by having a double-tiered cake.
Want to step it up a level? Why not make a stacked cake with the whole family! Mum and dad included. Get the tutorial for this celebration cake masterpiece from the Bluey website.
The coolest thing is that you can make each tier a different flavour – chocolate cake, vanilla cake, red velvet cake… whatever the birthday kid loves!
These beautiful hand decorated Bluey and Bingo cookies can be personalised for the birthday kid! Find the Bluey cookies here.
Bluey Party Food Ideas
Aside from the cake, don’t forget the rest of the party food! Here are some simple ideas for making your own Bluey themed pup snacks:
- Cookie cutters – Use bone-shaped cookie cutters to theme food and snacks, such as shaped mini sandwiches, cookies and Rice Krispie treats.
- Food labels – Add little cards next to food giving them cute new names. Strawberries are now pawberries, popcorn becomes pupcorn and so on.
- Blue & orange – Theme your food table with blue and orange treats. A little blue food colouring in the cupcake icing, blue & orange jelly cups, carrot sticks rockmelon.
And don’t forget the cheese and crackers!
Avoid the stress of making cupcakes for your child’s school celebration. Check out these 50 ideas for birthday snacks for school, including healthy treats, non-food treats and some sugary snacks too.
