Fortnite Themed Birthday Party

Do you know what Fortnite is? Well neither did I until a few months ago. This popular video game is a major hit with kids and adults alike and we started getting inquiries about it for a birthday theme from multiple parents. We did a bunch of research and came up with Fornite inspired decor so wanted to share some of it with you.


We often work with Teresa from Paper & Planes Design when creating custom birthday themes. She did a great job keeping with the theme and even put the birthday boy on the invite which he was thrilled about!

Dessert Table

We turned the dessert table into one of the backdrops from the video game. Blue sky backdrop with clouds and a green grass table. We made a custom birthday sign in the same shape as the Fortnite logo and used rustic wooden crates and treasure chests as the dessert containers. We came up with fun labels for the desserts that were Fortnite themed too!

Loot Bags

In the game there are supply drops of loot that fall from the sky in what appear to be crates flying in by balloon. We took this idea and turned them into the loot bags. Everyone got their own supply drop bag at the end of the party. We even used some of them as decor by hanging them on curtain rods and the stair banister to look like they are floating in. This would work best if you had a two story foyer with the bags floating down from the second level.

Chug Jug Juice

In Fortnite there is a drink called chug jug which is a beverage that helps you heal in the game. We turned small bottles of blue Gatorade into this healing juice by adding custom labels on them. This was definitely the drink of choice at the party.

We had a great time researching Fortnite and putting together this theme. Contact us if your birthday boy or girl has a fun theme up their sleeve and let us help create the decor. We will create any theme imaginable so let us know what you (or your child’s imagination) has in mind!

      All three in one?? That would be a tough one to intersect. Each element of the party could have the different themed elements. For example a Harry Potter candy table with coloured candies in the different house colours, Fortnite themed loot bags and a Zebra/jungle themed photo wall. Could work!

    My son wants a Fortnite birthday, it’s coming up in Sep. What did you use to make the “drop” words? What deserts are those? Is that jello in the syringe?

      Hi Jessica,

      I didn’t actually make the rice crispies, they were made by a baker. but it’s red fondant cut in strips with white fondant strips for the cross. The kids loved them!

      I would make the rice krispies and then wrap with fruit by the foot or fruit roll-up cut into strips and pipe the cross on the top with frosting:)

      Hi Carissa,

      They are party syringe shooters or jello shot syringes (these ones of course did not have any alcohol in them). The Slurp juice is made from the mini Gatorade bottles with my custom labels attached.

      If you are looking for any of the signage for the party including the Gatorade bottles I have a printable party kit in my Etsy shop at

      Hi there!

      I used Rust-oleum Paint’ers touch – but really any white spray paint should do.
