Big M loves Legos! He jumped all over the house when I suggested he could have a Lego Party for his 6th birthday. Searching the web for Lego Party ideas was so much fun. I found so many great ideas but they were all so complicated. For us simple is better. Would you agree?
Simple Lego Party Decorations – Invitations
I have been using Evites for years. They are so easy to send out, and because people can RSVP immediately online they actually do! I like the option to upload my own pics and for this one we used a Lego number.
I asked Big M to build a number 6. I was impressed with his creation (I usually am)! Then I set the 6 on a large green Lego piece and set them both on black construction paper. All that was left was to upload the picture into the Evite.
I didn’t have an email address for some of the guests (can’t send an Evite, with no email address), so I used the same pictures to make a few cards. I folded a red piece of construction paper in half and glued the picture on. Then I simply added the party details to the inside. Cute, simple and cheap…love that combo!
Simple Lego Party Decorations – Center Pieces
The party was at a local park, so I didn’t need too many decorations. A few special details made the party feel perfectly LEGO.
A couple of weeks before the party I asked Big M to save his Lego creations, instead of taking them apart. When we got to the park I asked him to display his work. They made the perfect center pieces.
Simple Lego Party Decorations – Napkins
After using a potato to stamp hearts on the Letter H it became one of my favorite decorating methods. The Lego Head stamp was so easy. I used an actual Lego Head as a model. Then with a sharp, small knife (I used a steak knife) I started forming the shape. I think the most important thing is to make sure that the cut is deep so that the extra potato won’t get in the way when you are stamping. I brushed a little yellow paint onto the potato stamp and then pressed it onto some plain white napkins. SIMPLE!
