So, not exactly sure how to plan this very much asked for party for my 11 year old son, I did some online research for ideas.
The stone wall backdrop is from Oriental Trading. It's actually part of the mad scientist party stuff. Bonus, I only used half the roll for this party!
I printed some Minecraft pictures online to glue onto a banner.
The Minecraft poster is from Wal-Mart. I glued it onto a trifold poster, but it was super windy this day, so we had to change my original table set up idea.
I got flatbread pizzas from Hy-Vee since they were the square shape.
Hobby Lobby has these square shaped cardboard pieces, 25 for $9.99. Then, I cut hundreds of squares out of construction paper so the kids could design a Minecraft version of themselves.
Since it was fall, we had a S'mores station. Again, square shaped food.
And, our cake lady did an excellent job designing the cake. This was her first Minecraft sheet cake. She just looked at the picture I gave her and created this masterpiece. Since this party, she's had many, many, many calls for Minecraft cakes now! And, she is even making the "creeper" cookies, which is the green square guy.
Minecraft tee was found at Target.
Gosh, I can't believe my first born is now 11! Eeck!!!! I'm thankful he is still letting me throw him a birthday party and that he loves having his cousins over more than school friends.
Happy Birthday Alex!
