Nail the Sonic Color Palette


For a proper Sonic-themed celebration, you must start with the hedgehog's signature colors. For all your party decor - from tablecloths and plates to balloons and streamers - plan around a palette of blue, white, red, and yellow. Have fun with the blue and play with various shades, making sure you include Sonic's famous cobalt blue. Weave in accents of white, red, and yellow to showcase the color palette of the beloved game.

Don't Forget Sonic's Rings


Time to tap into your creative balloon decorating skills. You can't throw a Sonic birthday party without the hedgehog's source of life - golden rings. Add them to your decorations with small golden balloon arches on your tables or added to your larger balloon display. Grab a few "0" shaped mylar balloons for the easiest golden rings ever.

DIY Your Own Golden Rings


This DIY is so simple, you'll finish it almost as fast as Sonic would. A styrofoam ring, yellow crepe paper, and glue is all you need to make these clever golden rings to use throughout your Sonic-themed party.

Serve Character-Inspired Food


When it's time to race to the food table, give guests a fun display of character-inspired foods. Get creative and label your foods so guests can make the character connections.

Include Golden Rings in the Food Spread


Sonic needs those golden rings to win the game, so make sure there are some on your food or dessert table. A dozen or two batches of simple glazed donuts make the coolest edible golden rings. If you're making your own scrumptious donuts, top them with a glittering yellow glaze. Encourage guests to power-up with these yummy golden rings.

Put Chaos Emeralds on the Table


True fans will love this nod to the classic game. Chaos emeralds are precious and powerful finds in the Sonic game. On your food table, chaos emeralds are a sweet treat to keep guests happy until cake time. Jellybeans, lollipops, candy-coated chocolates, and ring pops are just a few ways you can bring the colorful gems to your party in an edible form. Make sure you include every gem color from the game: green, blue, yellow, white, turquoise, purple, and red. Display them in large candy dishes, jars, or shallow bowls to make your table feel structured and thoughtful.

Make Dessert Supersonic


If you're skipping a traditional cake and want to offer a quick dessert that pleases your crowd, cake pops are a fun and supersonic way to go. Make your own or skip the prep and purchase charming Sonic character cake pops for a dessert kids and adults will race to.

Honor Sonic With Your Cake


If you do plan on serving traditional cake, this is your opportunity to present a fun cake that honors the hedgehog that's entertained kids for over 30 years. With this easy Sonic cake DIY, even the most novice baker can win the cake game in a flash.

Feed a Crowd With a Character Cake


If your party is for an older child and you're looking for a more conceptual approach to the theme, a tiered birthday cake helps you serve a large crowd and showcase details about a few of the favored characters. Stick to character colors and small details to stay on theme, making sure that Sonic's signature blue is the top tier. You might follow with yellow or orange to represent Tails and a base of red for Knuckles. Don't forget the golden ring details!

Serve Supersonic Boom Punch


Wash down your delicious dessert with a colorful, fruity party punch. Stick to your theme with Sonic's blue boom punch or a Knuckles' power fruit punch in vibrant red. You could even serve classic lemonade in fun colors for character-inspired hydration.

Challenge Guests to a Ring Toss


For little party guests, this simple party game is an instant hit. A chaos emerald ring toss game is easy for most ages and still fun for the older kids. Set the game up quickly with this guide and get ready for some fun and friendly competition.

Chomp Your Way to the Golden Ring Championship


This game challenges your coordination and your appetite. Donut on a string is a popular party game for kids' celebrations, but for your party it turns into Sonic's golden ring game.


  • Assortment of donuts (these need to be donuts with a hole in the center)
  • Twine, string, or fishing line
  • A pole, tree branch, or other area to hang the donuts
  • For older players, blindfolds might make this more challenging and fun


  1. Secure the donuts on the string.
  2. Attach the strings to your pole or branch. You could also try taping them to the ceiling or hanging them from ceiling fan blades.

Game Play

  1. Players stand with their hands behind their backs. This is when players would also put on their blindfolds.
  2. Attempting to be the first player to eat their entire donut, players cannot touch the donut with their hands or let it fall to the ground before it's finished.
  3. The first one to eat the whole donut without letting it fall is the Sonic golden ring champ!

Plan the Happiest Hedgehog Party of the Year


With character-inspired decor, irresistible desserts, and the most hilarious party games, your Sonic-themed celebration will be as famous as the spikey blue hedgehog himself. The birthday boy or girl will never forget having their very own supersonic hero party.
