Minecraft-Inspired Birthday Party
I was so excited that I was chosen to create a Minecraft-inspired birthday party! BirthdayExpress.com has some great ideas for theme parties, especially Minecraft. They make it really easy. This is my daughter’s favorite and her brother, my grandson’s birthday is today and we both wanted to have a great birthday party for him over the weekend!
So let me show you where we started. The Stone Wall Plastic Tablecover, I had this originally on the table and then while watching my daughter play Minecraft, I said hey the stone wall should be the wall not on the table, we need a green grass tablecloth for the table. So I found a Green Grass Plastic Tablecover similar to what they have on their site. BirthdayExpress.com has a wide assortment of tablecloths.
So now I have the grass and the walls. I had to have the castle doors and windows.
This is all on 1 clear sheet so we cut out the door and put it over our door in the living room. Then we added the windows to the stonewall tablecloth.
According to my daughter we had to have the stone column. She put this together and when she moved it of course it would come apart. I suggested using tape but she is eleven you know and does not like my suggestions! Well she moved it one more time and then the melt down and never doing it again. All I could do was laugh, I know it didn’t help but… So when I put it back together I used some tape on each part that hooked together and did not have anymore issues.
No we are not done yet! We needed the Ninja 8-Bit Box Head and the Knight 8-Bit Box Head. The kids had fun putting these on their heads, and the birthday boy filled them up when he went home.
We have to give the kids goodie bags or something similar so this Block Miner Filled Party Favor Box worked out great. I added a couple other things to it but it was great that it included 4 other fun items. These were a big hit at the party! BirthdayExpress.com has lots of things to make great goodie bags and boxes and they are priced better than the stores are.
When we seen the Plastic Jeweled Goblet, we had to get them! The kids loved them and not one was left behind.
BirthdayExpress.com also has kits that have everything in them to make it even easier. They also have great ideas for DIY parties on their site.
Now you can see how it all came together. I added a few other things that I had in my house and found at local stores.
The door turned out pretty cool looking!
The wall was not bad, it covered up our gas fireplace.
This is what it looked like before everyone arrived. The whole corner of the living room so they still had room to play games and video games.
It was easy to set up and the kids enjoyed themselves! There are a lot more pictures below.
BirthdayExpress.com has great ideas for decorations and more on their website.
The birthday boy and his sister were both happy! The kids all had fun and we had fun putting it together.
