Minecraft Birthday Party


This year, the little guy requested a Minecraft birthday party. I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and ended up making most things from scratch in lieu of purchasing generic party supplies:

This is my party decorating helper, exercising the highest of self-control, by not batting at the streamers or balloon strings:

For the invitations, I found this photo on the web and saved it.  Then, I dropped it into MS Word and used it as a background.

 After downloading a couple of Minecraft fonts here and here, I used them to type out the party information.  Totally professional looking, right? ;)

I found a really awesome wall display on Helen's site, where she used square, paper plates to create a Creeper face.  After checking the prices on square plates (~$4/pack) at various stores, I decided that $16 for the four required packs was more than I wanted to spend on a temporary wall display.  I ended up purchasing round plates for less money and cutting them into square shapes.  The entire thing cost less than one pack of those square plates, and I was able to cut them all out while watching TV.

All it took was a gray, plastic tablecloth and black construction paper to produce this Minecraft Skeleton front door display.

My sisters helped me create the Minecraft windows, using white electrical tape.

The framed meme (birthday boy's name blurred out) was made, using the same method as the invitations.  I saved an image from the web, dropped it into MS Word and then typed out what I wanted it to say.

I found several character faces and printed them out on Avery 22816 stickers.  The kids l-o-v-e-d them, can you tell?

Don't forget the Ghast piƱata! (Tutorial: here)

The Minecraft party food was pretty fun to put together.  I made Zombie Boogers, using this candy corn recipe.

Twizzlers (strawberry and chocolate) were bunched together to create TNT.  These disappeared almost as fast as the Dirt.

I made the Torches AKA chocolate dipped pretzel rods, using white chocolate and orange food coloring.  Careful! They're hot ;)

Unfortunately, I didn't get a good picture of the Dirt (brownies) before they disappeared.  The Minecraft Coal was made from black Rice Krispies treats, rolled into balls.

I made a cake (half white; half chocolate), and topped it with green buttercream icing.  The Creeper face was formed, using black marshmallow fondant.

I made table runners, using a strip of artificial grass that I purchased from a home improvement store.

  4. I am having my sons birthday party this Sunday and I am definitely more excited than he is. I have to work tommorow so I have been busy today making preparations for the party, baking the cake, putting together the huge creeper face (I used poster board instead of plates for mine but I think it looks cute still!) Thank you for the ideas and suggestions!!

  5. I love the creeper made of plates. At first glance I thought they were made with card stock but I'm glad to hear your method. I will definitely making it. We are having my son's 8th birthday at a Laser Tag place so there isn't much room to decorate. I think the creeper face might just do the trick. Thanks very much for posting your ideas. They have given me lots of inspiration.

    1. Thank you so much! I bet Laser Tag will be a blast! I wonder how expensive card stock would've been... You could totally print out the stickers as party favors. The kids l-o-v-e-d them. Thanks for visiting :)
