How I Planned a DIY Minecraft Birthday Party…on a budget!
My brother Adam is a huge Minecraft fan.
Actually, huge is a total understatement. Anyone who knows a Minecraft fan knows that they pretty much eat, breathe, sleep and dream Minecraft. I knew I had to surprise him with a Minecraft birthday party. He saw a few of the decorations, but he had no idea what I had up my sleeve for the big day!
First off, it’s very important for me to mention that this was an extremely DIY party, which means I spent very little money on my decorations and finger food, and made everything myself.
Low-cost and easy = a very happy Homicidal Homemaker.
I created the Stevie and Zombie figures by using boxes that I already had, along with paint and glue I already had on-hand. AWESOME!
I created the birthday banner with the “Minecraft” font, again, with paper and string that I already had on-hand. AWESOME!
For food, I made “sand blocks”, “grass blocks” and “water blocks”. I made sure to cut them all the same size, and the kids…I mean, teenagers, gobbled them up! They were a huge hit. Super low-cost ingredients and a snap to put together. Again, AWESOME!
We kept the rest of the food very simple – chips, salsa, ranch, carrots, olives, pretzels, mixed fruit and pizza.
For the cake, I made a “Minecraft Cake” cake. Get it? ;-P
With the leftover cake (from leveling/trimming) I decided to put together some last-minute Creeper Cakepops.
As party favors for the Minecraft Birthday Party, I made some really easy Creeper Sugar Cookies.
My dad and I collaborated on the “Crafting Table” pinata very last-minute. I literally finished putting it together about 2 minutes before the first guest arrived.
It was a great day! Adam and his friends had a blast at his Minecraft Birthday Party…I can’t wait to host his next birthday! 🙂
