Building [Lego] Birthday Fun

Posted by on Mar 12, 2013 in Blog, Event Planning, Personal Celebrations | 2 comments

Do you have a little girl that loves building with Legos?  Then, take note; she will love this celebration!

Last weekend, I produced an 8th birthday party with a Lego Friends theme.  For the unfamiliar, Lego Friends is the new Lego collection for girls.  The bricks are pink and purple and the “friends” live in “Heartlake City”.  The challenge with this birthday theme is that it’s too new; very little exists to create a memorable experience (i.e. decorations, disposables)  just toys and books.  So I had my work cut out for me!

Here’s what I came up with.

Color Scheme

Green, Hot Pink and Yellow

Lego Brick Invitation

It’s amazing what you can do with 3D foam squares?!  For this invitation, the squares helped create the appearance of a Lego brick.

Décor

I wanted a playful look for this 8th birthday celebration and I wanted to keep the look as simple as Lego bricks.  I used a white cotton table linen and white chairs so that the green, pink and yellow colors popped.

Look closely at the table runner.  It’s dimpled fabric that looks a lot like a Lego building plate!  It was absolutely one of my favorite details.

To complete the Lego décor look, I incorporated Lego storage containers (from The Container Store), which held party snacks, and sprinkled colorful bricks like confetti.

Lego Cake Pops

My other favorite party detail was the Lego head cake pops!  Aren’t they absolutely adorable?!  The birthday girl and her friends loved them.

Thank You Gift

As girls left the party, the birthday girl thanked them with a Lego “Forever Friends” book (as well as another handful of colorful jellybeans)!

Wondering about entertainment?  The birthday girl wanted to build Legos, of course, but the weather was amazing so the girls played outside.  As for food, the birthday girl requested pizza delivered.  Some party details can’t be changed.

So what do you think of my Lego Friends birthday party?  Have I inspired you to host one, too?  Please leave a comment to let me know.  More party photos may be found on the posh productions, LLC’s Facebook page.
