"The Big Bang Theory" 2nd birthday: COMiCS 2 COSMOS

Our whole household loves "The Big Bang Theory" TV show, so it seemed a natural fit for a theme for our little guy's second birthday. This theme easily translates to any age group - just change up the activities/games and treat bag contents (if you decide to do treat bags). You can find examples online of parties for everyone from kids to adults.

For decorating, I went with stuff that Sheldon and Leonard would have in their apartment, including:

  • their apartment flag (gold lion on a blue field)
  • a telescope
  • science magazines
  • periodic table of elements shower curtain (which I made using a large printed periodic table that I stuck onto a cheap, white shower curtain liner using packing tape)
  • a poster board version of their blue apartment door, number 4A
  • a poster board "friendship algorithm" white board
  • a Rubik's cube tissue box holder, which I made from colored cardstock paper
  • a Batman cookie jar, which I modeled from cardboard over a food-safe tin, then painted
  • vintage posters
  • a dart board on the back of the front door
  • tonnes of comic book and sci fi movie props and toys, like lightsabers, figurines, and masks
  • printed large photos of the characters, mounted on foam core board
  • bright, primary colors for plates, utensils, and napkins (with printed lightsaber napkin rings)


  • BBQ bacon cheese burgers, with BBQ, bacon, and cheese on the side
  • french fries
  • mini hamburger cupcakes (I will post a tutorial soon)
  • Froot Loops bars (Rice Krispie squares recipe, with Froot Loops substituted, since Howard's astronaut nickname is "Froot Loops")
  • "nightlight" goldfish crackers
  • Gobstopper candy "ball pit"
  • make your own sundae bar
  • cheesecake, decorated like the end of the opening credits (I cheated and used black marker on the cling wrap to do the lettering)
  • bottled water with custom labels
  • Sheldon's long island iced tea - for defending your woman
  • Raj's root beer - for smooth talking the ladies
  • Howard's cola - it will take you to the moon
  • Penny's grape crush - cure for what ails you
  • Leonard's orange crush - for crushin' on Penny
  • Marvel heroes candies, Smarties
