So I’m finally getting around to posting about BG1’s Lego party. I know, I’m a month overdue. It was a great turnout and a fun party though and overall, I was happy with the decorations. I originally wanted a “Lego Movie” party, but there weren’t any decorations from the movie, and surprisingly, there weren’t any Lego party decorations in general. Considering how popular Legos are in general, you’d think there would be.
Anyways, after a lot of searching and planning, I got everything in order for the party.
The invitations were my favorite part of the party planning. Rook No. 17 has these cute “movie ticket” style invites that I customized on PicMonkey with BG1’s party info, then I printed it out via Target Photo, on regular photo paper. They came as 4×7 prints, so I just cut the edges off.
I originally wanted to get a custom-made cake with the Lego Movie theme, but since we were having other sweets, plus cupcakes, we decided we didn’t want to spend that much money on the cake. We ended up getting a regular sheet cake from Acme and I had them put the poster picture from the Lego Movie on it, that I just googled. Honestly, it worked out fine, the kids loved it, and when all was said and done, no one even ate the cake, so it’s a good thing we didn’t waste the money on a custom one.
Sorry for the bad lighting!
So yeah, here’s the full treats table. We picked out certain treats like Cheez-Its, Rice Krispies Treats & Brownies with M&Ms in them, and chips. All of them were a hit with the kids and they tore it up! As for the decor, I just had the kids make some of their Lego creations and spread them out on the table. I also had popcorn with boxes I printed out from Halegrafx.
In one corner I bought a Lego storage box (from Target) and put the favor bags in there. The utensils were held together by a Lego cube I built.
My sister made the cupcakes and she added Lego white chocolate toppers on each of them, which I thought was a nice touch. Simple, yet effective.
At the other corner, I placed another Lego storage container (from Target) and I put the prizes from the party games in there for the kids to pick out.
The party favors were simple. I just bought a bunch of Lego mystery bags from Target and I also ordered Lego candy from Amazon, put them both in a ziploc bag, and printed this topper, which I stapled on.
I printed the birthday banner from Halegrafx. Then I cut it out and strung it up with ribbon.
I wanted the kids to have a fun photobooth option, too, so I printed out the Lego Movie characters from the Lego website, cut them up, and taped them to a white plastic tablecloth that I later taped up against the wall.
As for the games, I wanted something fun for the kids, so I decided to go with a Lego Word Search game from Halegrafx and a Lego Bingo game from Big D & Me. Both games were a hit. The kids had the most fun with the “Pin the Pants” game though. I got the idea from Bombshell Bling. I printed the guy onto a 16×20 poster from Walgreens and I printed the pants myself at home.
The game prizes were Lego Mixels packets that we also got from Target.
I think BG1 was very happy with her party and it even though it was chaotic with all those kids, they all had fun and everything turned out great!
