Toy Party: Decoration, Menu Ideas and More

Toy Shoppe Fun Party Inspiration Board
A party full of toys-- what could be better? Below are some ideas for your vintage inspired Toy Shoppe Fun Party filled with your favorite toys from the past and present!

Decoration Ideas
Inspiration from Famous Toy Shops
Head over to FAO.com to check out one of the world famous toy shops or rent some great toy inspired movies such as Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium or Big (to see shots of FAO Schwartz in New York City.) With those colorful images in mind, now fill your party space with the same amount of fun! Red, yellow and blue crepe paper, balloons galore, and lots and lots of toys!

Vintage Toys Galore
Head to the attic and pull out those old toys. Arrange them on the buffet table, or down the center of the dining table as a runner. A jack-in-the box, a doll, some tin cards, and more... the more colorful, the better!

Jars of Toys
Jars can be a great way to display tiny toys. Fill some glass jars of army men, jacks, rubber balls, dominoes, and other small toys. The jars will look great on the buffet next to plates of treats.

Board Games
Hang board games on the walls above the serving area, or other areas of the party for colorful fun. Candyland, Sorry, or vintage board games will look great.
