Pokemon Party Food Ideas

There was a “dessert” table at this party. These can get super expensive if you let them, or you can create one in a reasonable way without an overload of items. In other words, keep it simple and it can be done affordably.

First thing I ALWAYS plan is the cake portion of the table. Or cupcakes, depending on the event. For this Pokemon Party, I was feeling lazy and time crunched, so I ordered a 2 tiered cake from the grocery store and put my paper printable Pikachu cake topper on it. Seriously easy. And not as expensive as you think. And it was only a 10 minute time commitment.

Because this was intended to be a low-key party (low-key in my world, anyway!) I kept the food to a minimum. Our Pokemon Party food menu included:

  • Cake
  • Gluten-free cupcakes (for the birthday boy)
  • Super cute Pikachu pops made with Peeps
  • Sugar cookies
  • Cucumber cups with ranch and carrots
  • Fruit
  • Make-your-own Pikachu pizzas

It was plenty for everyone, and there wasn’t a mountain of leftover food at the end!

“Health” and “Mana” were (watered-down) Kool-Aid…although if I had to do it again, I would find a different drink to serve. To make these Pokemon GO friendly, I would rename the drinks something like “Super Potion” and “Hyper Potion.” Which I’ve done to the party printable set if you’re looking at it for your party.

Nikki of Tikkido did another amazing job with the Pokemon sugar cookies. Always in awe of the details she puts on her cookies! It was funny to watch all the kids trading their cookies like they trade their Pokemon cards.

As a side note…custom cookies get expensive. If you want a less expensive option, pick up yellow frosted cookies at the grocery store!


Pokemon Pikachu Pizzas - a great Pokemon Party food idea

Kids make Pikachu pizzas – it’s a great Pokemon birthday party idea that doubles as an activity

This was a lunch-time party, so we had to fill the kids up with something nutritious before we let them loose on the cake and cookies. We did a make-your-own Pikachu Pizza bar that also served as a party activity. Kids love anything all that much more if they can make it themselves! My local grocery store puts the pre-made pizza shells on B1G1 special all the time, which made this a super inexpensive menu item in the end!

After we ate, we played. A LOT. See the perfect games and activities for all your Pokemon trainers on the next page.
