TRANSFORMERS Party Supplies and Decorations
Since the movie takes place in the 90s (and since this millennial loved all the throwbacks), I decided on a 90s cyberpunk aesthetic for the TRANSFORMERS party decorations, along with the iconic TRANSFORMERS color scheme of red, blue, yellow, and metallic silver.
Other TRANSFORMERS party supplies were incorporated through food serving. Snacks were served in small galvanized metal pails and serving trays.
I found these awesome metallic silver paper plates, which looked great with napkins and plastic utensils in the other TRANSFORMERS themed party colors.
Other TRANSFORMERS party supplies are the printables I used for the food signs and cupcake toppers (see the links to the free TRANSFORMERS printables at the end of this post).
TRANSFORMERS Party Food and Drink
You know food is always an important element of a party theme for me, so I had a lot of fun planning the TRANSFORMERS themed food for our watch party! Here’s the TRANSFORMERS party food and drinks that we served.
Transwarp Key Popcorn Cones. It’s not a movie watch party without popcorn, and for my TRANSFORMERS themed party, popcorn is served in individual cones that look like the Transwarp Key in the film. To create the cone, I twisted gray cardstock into a cone shape and secured it with hot glue. I added some easy hand-cut details with a shimmery gold cardstock that I attached with more hot glue. The popcorn itself is a little bit sweet and sour, tossed with movie butter flavored oil and seasoning with some gold candy added (gold rock candy and gold twisty lollipops). I displayed them in an acrylic cone holder.
AUTOBOT Treats. Using Rice Krispies treats (you can do them homemade, or the shortcut method I employed by using pre-made Rice Krispies Treats), OREO cookies, and candy melts, create some simple vehicles to match your favorite AUTOBOTS! We chose to make OPTIMUS PRIME (using red and royal blue candy melts), BUMBLEBEE (using yellow candy melts), MIRAGE (using light blue candy melts), and ARCEE (using pink candy melts). Use a little bit of the wet candy melts to stick the OREO “tires” to the sides of the vehicles and you’ve got these deliciously fun TRANSFORMERS themed party ideas!
MAXIMAL Crackers. Simply serve animal crackers in a small galvanized metal pail for this TRANSFORMERS themed food idea.
TERRORCON Toast. DECEPTICONS, who? The TERRORCONS are the main antagonists in TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS. These mini crostini bites with a spicy sriracha-avocado spread are inspired by these baddies, and much easier to make than they might sound. Here’s what you need to make them:
- Baguette, cut into thin slices
- Olive oil
- Sriracha sauce
- Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, crushed
How to make them:
- Lay the pieces of toast on a foil-lined baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and place under a pre-heated broiler until lightly toasted. Place on a serving tray.
- Smash avocado in a mixing bowl with a fork. Mix in sriracha sauce to taste.
- Spread the avocado mixture on top of the toasted baguette pieces, then sprinkle with the crushed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
Cupcakes with DIY TRANSFORMERS Cupcake Toppers. Store-bought cupcakes become TRANSFORMERS themed food by adding printable cupcake toppers with the AUTOBOTS, MAXIMALS, and TERRORCONS insignia symbols. I made the DIY cupcake toppers using the printable art (get the link to download the free printables below), cardstock, toothpicks, a glue gun, and hot glue sticks using the instructions in this article.
Energon Drink. This TRANSFORMERS themed party idea is also really easy! Serve any purple punch, juice, or sports drink in clear plastic cups. I added purple glowstick bracelets to the bottom of each cup so that it up-lit the drinks a little to give it a glow like the Energon fuel and energy source the TRANSFORMERS use.
