One of my favorite things about the new house: Having enough space to throw a party here! The kids' birthdays are only a day apart so they get lumped together into one big party. The theme this year was "Legos"
Here are a few details from the party
The Lego Ninjago cake
and here are a couple shots from while I was building the cake
I used the 6" pan on the bottom to prop the cake up a little higher
I layered the marshmallow fondant to make the "fabric".
Here is my daughter's cake
It doesn't look like anything Lego-related, you say? It was supposed to be a Lego Friends cake but she changed her mind the week of the party! So this princess crashed the Lego party. I made the bottom with the Pampered Chef batter bowl and stuck one of those doll tops from the baking section of Hobby Lobby on top of it.
Here are the favor bags
and the gift tags for the bags
The girls received heart necklaces made out of two Lego bricks snapped together
and the boys got key chains
I found the bricks with the hole in them in a Lego grab bag I bought from the Lego store
Each kid received a bar of Lego soap too!
I found the mold online. The big tag is meant to deter kids from thinking it was an edible treat!
I also made a banner for the party
I downloaded the Legothick font online. It took a little doctoring, but I was able to make it look like the Lego logo by outlining the letters in yellow and filling the insides with white in Photoshop
Each of the letters were adhered to a square of red cardstock. The squares were sewn together across the top to hold the banner together.
I built a utensil holder out of megablocks... we didn't have enough Legos to make one. Not to mention, it would have taken much longer had I made it out of little Legos!
We only ended up playing one game at the party... "guess the number of Legos in the jar". I had other games planned but the kids were having fun just running around and playing with the toys we had out. I wasn't going to mess with that!
And here are some of the boys doing what they love to do!
You can see the shirt I made for my son in this shot too. I made one for my daughter in pink that said "three" in the Lego font.
So, I might have gone a little over the top, but I was excited about our first big house party! Let me know what you think in the comments... Thanks so much for stopping by!
