This awesome MINECRAFT THEMED NINTH BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Nadia Fante of MAmeMIMA
This is always such a fun party theme for a boy’s birthday party! I always love all of the fun food and treat ideas used in them. For instance the fun TNT licorice and the cute rice krispie dirt grass. This party is so fun and world work perfectly for any boy young and old.
The Minecraft party ideas and elements that I like best from this fabulous birthday bash are:
- The fun “happy birthday luke” banner
- The cute TNT favor boxes
- The fun crepe paper streamer backdrop
- The cute and simple Minecraft invitation
- The cute water jellos
- The Minecraft men boxes
- and MORE!
Minecraft Party Details:
This is what Nadia said about planning the party- “When Luke first mentioned a Minecraft party I was not very thrilled to be honest. I’d seen him playing but didn’t know much about the game. So I had to ask lots of questions to get a better idea and start planning. With some Minecraft knowledge, I browsed the web for some ideas. And I found tons. Really. Tons of great ideas. But I still wanted to make my own version of a Minecraft party. So I started with the basics. The game has this pixelated look and pixels = squares. Light bulb came off! Everything will be made out of squares.
I designed a squared Minecraft invitation and a squared Happy Birthday banner and that set the tone for the rest of the décor. I created a crepe paper background in the Minecraft colors: different shades of green, brown and black. I had tons of cardstock scraps in those colors so I cut squares in different sizes and ran them through my sewing machine to make garlands.
I set a table with “Minecraft food” using foods and snacks related to the game. I made little square tags with a picture and corresponding name for each “Minecraft food”. To display them on the table I glued the tags to little silver favor boxes. To complete the table I used square green and white dishes that were perfect for this occasion. I didn’t have enough square dishes so I got some round containers at the Dollar Store.
I made the “grass” food with rice krispies topped with some shredded coconut dyed green with food coloring. For the “water” I made blue j-ello. Squared brownies were the “dirt”, goldfish crackers were the “fish”. Some other foods were simple like the chocolate chip cookies, carrots, watermelon and apples.
With the same little favor boxes used to make the food tags I made little TNT packages. For the water bottles I created simple but cute bottle labels. And I made sure to buy water bottles with green caps so they can match the decor.
To add some more décor to the party I used a bookcase to create a Minecraft background. I covered the bookcase with plastic tablecloths, brown under, green on top. I cut the edge of the green tablecloth to resemble the Minecraft world. I also made a Keep Calm and Play Minecraft poster and a number 9 using my son’s pictures. The Creeper’s face was very easy to make with a green paper plate, a few pieces of crepe paper and a sharpie.
When I did my Minecraft research I found cardboard Minecraft heads and foam sword. I made my own Minecraft heads, using diaper boxes, cardstock scraps and glue.
For favors we made Minecraft CD’s with some Minecraft music. My husband designed a cover and a label. My son was very happy with how everything turned out”.
