Lego Birthday Party…

Okay, it’s Tuesday and this is not technically a tutorial but I thought it would be a fun idea to share with you today instead.

Over the weekend we had my son’s birthday party, he has wanted a Lego themed party for a long time so this year we threw him one. He was very excited about it and was even more excited when I told him I needed some custom lego creations for the decorations. He built me the cupcake & cake stands and did a much better job than I ever could.

To make the invites I used a program that you can download for free on the lego website called “lego creator”. I then built the word “PARTY” with legos (it took me forever!! I am not a natural lego builder) then added the little guys. I then used the screen shot in Photoshop to add the words and printed them on photo paper! Easy!! (except the trying to make a letter “R” out of legos part)

The decorations:

The party table
The cake, I was trying to make it look like legos… obviously it’s not squared up or flat… let just say I need alot more practice with fondant :) but Andrew thought it was cool.
Using the same lego program I made cupcake picks. Andrew built the cupcake stand and decorated it with his lego guys.
when else can you have Sponge Bob & a Stormtrooper in the same party besides Lego? :)

I ordered the lego boxes and plates online.
I stuffed the boxes with some candy, pop rocks, stickers, a little frisbee & a lego magnet  (I was able to find a large package of them online and split them up so each kid got one).
During the party the kids all watched a Lego movie (which they all LOVED)
After the movie they had a lego building contest.
I found at our local wally world a bunch of lego car kits on clearance. Each kid got one then we had a contest to see who could bulid the cars the fastest… the kids were pretty fast !!
Then cake & presents to follow!
now.. on to his twin sisters party… Alice in Wonderland .. next week.

Join us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up party!

    LOVE this idea! I have three boys who are lego fanatics and we do one “happy summer” party every year (instead of three during the year). I was a little tired of the community pool…I am on a mission. Thanks for sharing such cute ideas.

    My son is turning 8 in August and wants a really cool themed party. He still can’t come up with an idea. I’m gonna run this one by him. GREAT IDEA. And I think the cake is darling! Fondant scares me to death!

    I thought the cake looked awesome!

    How awesome is this party!! I love it all!!

    I’ll have to remember to go online and look for those Lego boxes and plates, I have 2 Lego junkies in this house & having a Lego birthday would just make me the best mom ever!!

    Although I have to say if I step on another Lego I’m going to scream. Those little buggers hurt!

    What a great party idea! We are having a baseball first birthday for my son in June, but I am filing away the Lego party for future reference! Thanks!

    looks great– the cake too (-: fondant can be frightening. my 7 year old is into clutch powers too… i think lego has found another goldmine.

    I love your use of legos for the stands and decorations! We just had 3 lego parties in our family and everyone loved them all! Such a fun theme to go with!

    This turned out great. My 5 year old wants a LEGO party this summer. I would love to know the name of the place where you ordered your boxes and supplies. Great job!!!

    I know this party was ages ago, but do you remember where you ordered the Lego boxes from? My almost 4-year-old really wants a Lego party, and I’m trying to make it special.
