Lego Birthday Party

This week saw me busy preparing for Master 9's Lego themed Birthday party.  Birthday party's only happen once every few years in our household so they're sort of a big deal. The lego theme was lots of fun and thanks to all the clever people out there in blogland I had lots of great ideas to work with. Needless to say....no sewing happening here at the moment! :)

First there were invitations to be made..... I used the instructions from Spotted Canary

Followed by Lego man cookies..... tutorial courtesy of SweetSugarBelle

Lego head cake pops....thanks to Amy of Living Locurto

And of course, a Lego cake.....it looks better if you squint a little as the cake was a bit crumbly and was awkward to ice, lol.  Inspiration for the cake was from here only I used melted chocolate set in tealight candle surrounds to make the bumps which worked really well!
Inside was multi-coloured too......

Party loot boxes.... thanks to Deliah creates


More cookies..........
all packaged up to go in the loot boxes along with some lollies and of course chocolate!


And lastly.... the decorations.... tissue paper pom-pom's hung from the roof of our deck.
These are really quick and easy and you can find the tutorial here.

Thanks to all of you who generously shared your ideas..... It was a great day and certainly made Master 9 very happy. He's still grinning!

Until next time.....

  8. Hi there, I see you have used the lego loot boxes template. I was hoping to do so as well, but the link does not work on delia creates. Just hoping you may still have a link that works or something that you may be generous enough to send my way.
    hope to hear back kjstrecker@sympatico.ca
    PS your cake looked amazing.
