Summer calendars sure seem to fill up fast! Right now we’re busy with planning and celebrating my son’s 6th birthday. Here is a sneak peek at his upcoming Lego-themed party. Boy, have I had fun looking for ideas! If only I had more time to include them all. (This is where I love to do a search on Pinterest to find all those wonderful blog posts about other Lego parties and reuse the ideas I like!)
We have lots of Legos and Lego-related objects in our house. Keeping that in mind, I’ve been trying to plan the party to use what we already have. I also like to keep it easy.
For the invitation, I simply scanned a large Lego base plate that was already in our collection, and then I made a border out of some bricks and scanned that too. I found a photo of my son building with his Legos, and mimicked the logo font.
For the sake of keeping it easy, I always do cupcakes and ice cream cups for parties. It’s fast to get everyone served and less messing while serving. So, for cupcake decorations, I decided to see if this Lego ice cube mold we had would work with melting chocolates. It did! I’m also getting a little smarter (yay), and I’ve learned that large shapes of that chocolate on it’s own is not really that great tasting. This time, I put some little chunks of pretzel in the middle of the bricks. My kids stepped up as taste testers, and they wanted more. I call that a win.
I’ll post more about the party after it happens. Come back soon!
My designer takeaway: Plan, reuse and keep it easy!
