Lego Birthday – Table and Treats
My mind was reeling with ideas once my son told me he wanted a Lego birthday party. The games, the decor, the invitations… I don’t know who was more excited! When our guests arrived, they picked up their name badges and could grab a little snack if they wanted. The smiley Lego face treat bags greeted them too (the treat bag printing wasn’t without a few problems).
The name badges were created with Microsoft Publisher and two images I pulled off the internet. The plastic protectors and lanyards were readily available at an office supply store – and in sets.
I found yellow plastic partyware at a local GFS Marketplace. Your local party store will likely carry them too. Just take a permanent marker, grab a few cups and plop yourself down on the couch. Drawing the little Lego guy faces was very easy and quick. It’s helpful to have a catalog or website open for some inspiration, too. We decided not to draw on the plates – we all felt squeamish having pizza touching marker ink.
The bubble wrap idea came from “delia creates“. Except I didn’t have time to spray paint the back of it. I did have kelly green plastic tablecloth and that seemed to suffice.
Snacks (my son’s favorites): Cheetos, Goldfish crackers, Fritos
Treat bags (also some favorites): Brick candy, pencils, glow bracelets, sticky hands, little notepads
