When planning my son's recent birthday, he requested two things...1. that we use "red, orange and blue because those are my favorite colors" and 2. eat "vanilla cake". I decided to hit a local stationery/scrapbooking store hoping to find some inspiration that met both criterion plus added another element he'd love. When I saw this Lego-inspired paper I knew it was the just the right thing. And so it was official, a Lego theme it was!
As you can see, we had a lot of fun with it...we made boxed invitations full of jelly beans (inspired by Jordan), paper legos to hang from the ceiling, napkin rings for napkins that weren't used (kids seem to prefer their sleeves), Lego coloring pages (from their website) and a silly "pin-the-circle-onto-the-lego" game. Boy, it's amazing how much can be packed into just an hour and a half. Pfew!
update: Aren't parties with themes so fun!? I have recently listed a few new birthday party ideas over here.
