For your child's next birthday, kick up some fun with a Karate Birthday Party that's sure to delight all the pint-sized Bruce Lees in attendance.
You don't need a black belt in party planning to pull off a fantastic karate birthday party - just a little patience and a lot of creativity. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Kick off the fun with "ghi" invitations. To make, simply fold cardstock into a rectangle and cut V's for the neck and arms. Finish with a black ribbon embellishment.
Deck out your karate party dojo with brightly colored Chinese paper lanterns and tissue dragons, and festoon the walls with "karate belt" party streamers. For table décor, display faux nun-chucks, swords, and balloon bouquets in black, white, and red.

No martial arts birthday party would be complete without chopstick-style party food. Order take-out from your favorite Asian restaurant and set up a buffet complete with chopsticks and fortune cookies.
For dessert, serve the birthday boy or girl a "Ghi Cake". To make, bake a rectangular cake and slice a V-shaped wedge from the middle for a neck hole, then shape the cake's sides to resemble arms. Ice the cake white and add a strip of chocolate frosting at the beltline.
