Happy Birthday Boys // DIY Minecraft Birthday Party!!

This past weekend we threw a Minecraft themed birthday party for my two sons, Chandler and Ethan. In fact this was the biggest birthday party that I have ever planned, it was weeks in the making. So naturally I just had to share it because I absolutely love the results! I actually even made this really cool back drop on the wall behind the table, but I skimped and purchased tape from the Dollar Tree and the gorgeous backdrop fell overnight and got ruined, so I put up the creeper banner as a last minute back up.

For the front door I created this cute Creeper by using construction paper and crayons. He took practically no time and was super cheap (a win in my book!)

I made him using a old packaging box wrapped in white wrapping paper, with the eyes made of construction paper and the lighter gray spots colored on using crayons because apparently gray paper isn’t included in the packs of construction paper.

I used double sided tape to keep him up on the wall, in hind site I wish that I would have made him so that I could pull him off of the wall without destroying him.

Heres a closer look at the dessert table:

I used Cheetos for the carrots, pretzels for the trapdoors, chocolate chip cookies for the cookies (store bought because I didn’t have time to make homemade), twirlers for the TNT (these were the kids favorites and were gone really fast), candy coated pretzels for sticks, gold Hershey’s bars for gold, chocolate rice crispy treats with icing for dirt grass, and long stick watermelon lolly pop just for fun.

Birthday cake for cake, Sour patch watermelon candy for watermelon, blue rock candy for diamonds, sour apple chewy candy for emeralds, black Sixlets for obsidian, water, Sprite, and A&W for creeper juice, sour apple and watermelon just for fun, and chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate chips cupcakes just because Ethan thought the cake wasn’t big enough.

Turns out the kids were so full of candy and pizza that they hardly ate any cake or cupcakes.

Also the stands for the cake and the cupcakes and rice crispy were made of old boxes wrapped in brown paper that I painted using acrylic paint to make them look like wood blocks.

We picked out a ton of green, black, and white candy, a cute tic tac toe board, sticky mustache, whoopie cushion, and two Minecraft bracelets.

It was a blast and all of the kids had a great time, but I was EXHAUSTED the next day, but it was all totally worth it!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHANDLER AND ETHAN!!

  1. OMG – this is amazing. You really went all out. I am impressed that you know the names of the Minecraft characters, let alone all the work you do to throw this awesome party! My boys just started getting into Minecraft and now they are fighting over the ipad to play!

    Great job on the party!

  2. LOVE THIS!!!!!! I’m planning a minecraft birthday for my son also. Where did you find the placards for the food items??

  3. Great ideas… I am hosting a Minecraft party for my 8 year old in a month and this has given me lots of ideas! Could I ask where did you get the table cards?? with the mincraft grass at the bottom and the names of the items ?
    Did you create these on the computer?
    Thanks!
