I had made my blog private for awhile, because I wasn’t really using it anymore and there’s a lot of personal content about my kids, etc. But several people have contacted me on Pinterest asking to see better photos of things I’ve posted about parties I’ve thrown, so I finally made it public again. And since I was making it public, why not post the oh so adorable pictures of my son’s Minecraft birthday from last fall too.
I got so much inspiration from online, if you check my Pinterest inspiration board, you can find my planning board, and I shared some links for what to buy down below as well!
If you’re not a boy mom, you probably won’t get this party at all. The me from 5 years ago would be clueless, but it was a ton of fun.
Spiders were a must. Crepe paper and balloons made these easy to make
Minecraft Diamond Sword – this was a treasured party decoration at the end. I bought a pack of foam ones. These blow up ones would also make a great party favor.
DIY – TNT with twizzlers were adorable
Redstone, Diamonds and Gold
Creeper Cupcakes – Printable Toppers attached below.
DIY’d Goodie bags included the Minecraft glasses my kids are wearing below. Pretty cute, not too expensive, and more useful than some goodie toys.
Pin the Tail on the Ocelot was my own creation. I actually freehanded this project, and to my own shock and dismay, it turned out ok!
If you’re coming from Pinterest, please take any idea you like. I definitely wasn’t the first to have most of these ideas! Just sharing the love!
We also had Minecraft coloring sheets, the animal paper animals you put together from Amazon, so cute, and of course iPads for the kids to play Minecraft in real life!
