Anyone who has given their child a birthday party knows that when you ask them “what type of party do you want?”, it changes daily. Spider-Man, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Big Hero 6…..every day I asked, the party theme seemed to change. Finally my son and I settled on a theme he luckily didn’t change his mind on – Lego!
My son loved The Lego Movie, and he’s been loving putting Lego sets together so the theme stuck long enough that I could have the party.
We had the party with family at our home, and I wanted to do a great cake table with the Lego theme.
To start, I wanted a fun tablecloth. Of course I couldn’t find what I wanted anywhere, I decided to go to Fabricland and have a tablecloth cut! It seemed a bit easier to look through a store full of fabrics to pick out my favourite pattern instead of finding a pre- made table cloth online.
Next up I decided to make my own backdrop for the table. I purchased three poster boards that I taped together for only a few dollars at Walmart, amd then I got to work on making paper fans. There are plenty of Etsy shops online selling paper fans, but I decided to make them myself for this project. They were super easy to make, and all I needed was some paper and a glue stick! I used scrapbook paper so they were a bit more sturdy. I also purchased a fancy hole punch from Michaels to give some of the fans a pattern.
I ordered the invitations, water bottle labels, and thank you notes from Lucky Little Prints on Etsy. They had a whole package which also included personalizing their Lego party themed items including cupcake toppers and a welcome sign!
A Lego cake was in order for the table, and I wanted it to have some height so it was actually two cakes stacked on top of each other. I also wanted cake pops as a treat as well, amd I made my own cake pop holder.
I used two pieces of styrofoam as the base, and to make each look like a piece of Lego I cut styrofoam balls in half, and glued them onto each styrofoam block. I pained each red to finish it off.
I used Lego stickers to theme the popcorn tubs and cady bags for the candy jars, and used some colourful paper straws to decorate the table.
As a thank you gift I had Lego cookies for each of our guests from Sweet Treats by Franca P.
How adorable are these cookies? And they tasted AMAZING! I was so happy with the way they looked, and they tasted so good we didn’t want to give them away. Sweet Treats by Franca P. will create custom treat orders for sugar cookies, Oreo pops, chocolate marshmallows, chocolate strawberries and even caramel corn! I loved the way they packaged these cookies as well – they looked amazing.
Some of the finishing touches on the table included large Lego blocks from Toys R Us, and also a gold “3” balloon to finish off the table.
I had a few other themed items around the house like this soap dispenser I made with Legos floating inside.
Catering lunch was easy with help of Panera Bread – they had customizable lunch boxes which included either a sandwich, pickle, a cookie and chips, or half a sandwich, salad, cookie and chips. They made passing out lunch really easy!
Overall I was really happy with the table, and my son had a great time at his party!
