“It was long ago predicted that on a scheduled day of celebration, that an ordinary room in an ordinary house would be magically transformed into a lair of wonder and festivities by way of amazing party decor and precise planning. Your role in this festivity and quest is as follows: assemble a courageous band of friends and heroes and venture into the heart of this “8 bit” jubilee. You must then sample all sweets and treats you encounter, then secure the sacred relics known as “party favors”. Your role in this day of fun will not soon be forgotten; farewell, and good luck”.
If you couldn’t tell by that little intro, this is hands down my favorite party series that we offer! With the recent introduction of vintage, “mini” game consoles that hold dozens of classic 8 bit games, it appears 8 bit and retro gaming is back in a big way. So, if you’re looking to host a gaming night and bask in sweet nostalgia, or if you’d like to introduce your kids to the games you loved when you were their age, our 8 Bit Party Supplies provide the perfect back drop for an evening of vintage gaming fun! Every item in this series boasts bold and bright colors while showcasing 8 bit-style graphics that stay true to the glory days of old.
You may find that your perfect party quest has put you in the market for specialty items or complementary decor; if so, our gargantuan selections of Party Essentials and Party Favors are sure to hold any party treasure that you seek. Now, let us venture forth for a look inside this awesome 8 bit collection!
While I probably don’t fall into the die-hard 8 bit gamer category, I have logged my fair share of hours on various 8 and 16 bit consoles throughout the 90s and into present day 2018. With that being said, if my kid received one of these neat 8 bit personalized invitations like the one pictured below, my interest would be piqued and I would be eager to get in on the fun. That’s one of the coolest things about this collection; most of today’s younger parents grew up playing the 8 bit classics that are becoming popular again, making an 8 bit celebration a great opportunity for parents to share part of their own childhood experience with their children. If you’re hosting an 8 bit celebration for your own little hero and are looking for an inexpensive and fun party activity, consider equipping your guests with some of our 8 bit Knight or Ninja Box Heads and a few of our Inflatable Swords. Your child and their friends will know exactly what to do; watch as they storm the party gates and recreate some glorious 8 bit adventures!
Looking for some treats to serve at your game night or birthday party? Honestly, some pizza, soda, and chips are hard to beat when it comes to an 8 bit themed jamboree, but throwing in a cake or a delicious dessert or two certainly won’t hurt anyone’s feelings! Here are a couple of delectable discoveries I made while scouring the inter-webs in search of 8 bit themed desserts. These cool cupcakes that I came across are inspired by the Triforce, a fictional artifact from the 8 bit classic The Legend of Zelda, and no doubt taste as lovely as they look. The second and IMO the coolest confection that I came across was this Link Birthday Cake; what a neat idea! Unfortunately, neither site had recipes listed, but I felt these images might stoke the creative embers and inspire you to whip up some custom desserts for your own gathering. 🙂
Although you’ve celebrated most courageously, our quest is sadly nearing its end. It was surely a wild romp fraught with perils and near misses, yet I have no doubt that you and your intrepid band of heroes have taken the day. A brave group such as yours deserves no less than the finest of parting gifts, so send your guests off in a noble fashion with some of our righteous 8 bit party favors! These Neon 8 bit Sunglasses and fluorescent Robot Rings make for the most gallant of take-home gifts, while our 8 bit Personalized Thank You Notes are the perfect way to express gratitude to your guests for their part in making your party an event to remember.
