Especially when a mom of one of the guests walks in and says “this looks like one of those pinterest parties”.
That is all I need.
This lego party I did for my nephew got that specific response and I was ecstatic!
Here is a little thing about me though, like many other bloggers I am neurotic about something until I get the pictures, and then I am able to let my hair come down and enjoy the rest of the day. So when the kids were being kids I could feel my heart racing, but I obviously wouldn’t say anything because they were just being kids. But, after I got all the photos, it was all good, so when my daughter herself fell and took down the lego banner right off the table, I didn’t think twice (about the party decor that is). I got her up, fixed it and moved on.
And really, everything can be fixed. Sometimes they end up looking better then when they started.
We went with a primary color theme and I made the banner with red and blue cardstock and yellow trim cut on the Cricut. Letters for the banner were cut on the Cricut as well and cut out of Lego scrapbook paper. The large Legos were great for covering the tape from the banner and were just half a sheet of cardstock, 2 inch circles and some raised adhesive to give them a dimensional look.
The cupcake picks were made from 2 inch circles of the same Lego print scrapbook paper with a yellow “5” hot glued on top. The picks I use are larger than tooth picks (thought they work too) and I find them in the unfinished wood section of the craft store.
I used my trusty pitchers and just wrapped them in cardstock and cut out some 3 inch circles and put them on the front for a lego look. The pitchers are sitting on an inverted brownie pan covered in fabric to get them off the table enough to be functional.
Lego pizza bites were made from the refrigerated thin crust pizza dough in the can, pizza sauce, cheese, and mini pepperoni. I made a pizza normal style and cut it into the squares after with a pizza cutter, much less headache then trying to do this separately before baking.
Lego cheese and crackers, just wheat thins and some cheddar cheese. We bought the block and used a thick straw to make the little holes and punched them out with a chop stick.
Veggie and ranch cups, little cups with some ranch in the bottom and filled with peppers, carrots, cucumber, and celery.
Mini fruit kabobs, I used the tooth picks from the cupcake picks and just made mini fruit sticks with strawberries, grapes and some had peaches and pineapple.
Lego brownies, these were made in a little one inch square silicone brownie pan from the craft store. After they had cooled off, they were frosted and colored chocolate candies were put on top.
We scored on finding little Lego candles and just stuck a bunch in a cupcake for the singing.
Here is the banner, before it got ripped off :).
And Avery trying on her cousins spiderman mask, quality control of course.
And just because I think it is funny, here is a picture of her plate. She ate a whole bunch of fruit sticks and licked the frosting and ate the candies off of 3 YELLOW brownies. That is my kid.
