Well, I hope you are ready for this long post with tons of pics! This is the time of the month where I share a party or party ideas from my own creations or from across the www.
Today I am sharing the party we held for our 2 boys who were turning 6 and 2 three weeks apart - so we held a joint shindig for them in between their 2 birthdays!
Right, come on in you're all invited...
I had to hang the wreath on the inner door to welcome guests, as we have had a new front door and I couldn't find a way to attach it! Oh well, it still looked good :)
We set up the table using square yellow plates decorated with red liquorice mouths and smartie eyes...
and added my Lego topiary as a centrepiece...
...with smily face food picks :)
My eldest son and I made Lego biscuits (they were very basic. We just covered rectangle biscuits in yellow icing and added yellow smarties to make them look like blocks. I forgot to take a pic as they were devoured pretty quickly!)
After the food, we had photos in the photo booth area, stripy paper was the backdrop and the kids could sit on a huge red block, surrounded by mega-mega bloks. There was also lips, mustaches and sunglasses to play around with...
(You may notice the Lego tower photo in the background - I will do a separate post on that.)
Ha - my youngest will not let me get a pic of him!
I also made a Lego logo picture by folding up a carrier bag and placing it in a red frame (as seen above.)
The birthday boys building a wall with the huge Mega bloks. I purchased a plain red and a plain blue t-shirt and iron-on numbers. I dread doing the iron on bit, but they turned out rather well! I love this picture :)
(For my daughter I made a yellow, blue and red tutu and iron-on a Lego face onto a yellow vest top - she looked so cute)
And yes, I did join in and wore a red t-shirt adorned with red, yellow and blue fabric flowers, blue jeans and my Lego jewellery. I will spare you a photo though as my brother-in-law said that I looked like I should be on kids TV, hmmmm!
After photos we did the cake - I'm afraid it is not Lego themed as I just couldn't come up with something in time! I really wanted to create a rainbow cake, where you cut into the cake and it has different coloured layers. But I am no baker, so didn't want to risk a disaster. So I went for a shop-bought balloon cake, which did the trick!
After cake we had games - each child was given a basket with 4 wheels, axles and blocks and told to create a vehicle...
then they had a little race...
on your marks, get set, GO!
Then the kids split into 2 groups to see who could build the biggest Mega Blok tower! There were blocks everywhere :)
I did have another game, (which I forgot to do), and that was guess how many Lego and Mega Bloks were in the tub.
At the end of the party, the children got to go to the Sweet Shoppe and choose some sweeties and pick up their favour bag to take home...
Each child got a mini Lego kit (except for the toddlers), a Lego colouring book (downloaded from HERE) and some other bits and bobs.
I created the sign by using the Lego font in black, drawing around each letter with a yellow pen then cutting out and sticking on to red cardstock. I finally got the mini red/yellow/blue felt bunting completed and I was really pleased with the result.
Thanks for coming, hope you enjoyed the party!
