Lego Party

This party was also submitted my Katie Kourembis.  She made this Lego party for my nephew Roman's 3rd birthday.  The party was held at  Brickapalooza .  It is a play place with tons of Lego's for the kids to build with. 

She made the banner, stickers, tags and an iron-on for this super cute t-shirt on photoshop using the legothic font.  It can be downloaded for free from Fonts 101

The perfect birthday hat for a Lego builder...  a construction hat.

She had a tower of cupcakes topped with a Lego head storage container.  It made the perfect centerpiece for this party.  The giant legos in the background are also storage containers.  They can all be found at the Container Store.

The cupcakes were decorated with chocolate Legos that she made using a building bricks candy mold

She decorated colored lunch bags with circles to look like legos.  They were filled with mini m&m's, lego minifigure crayons, coloring books, cookies and enough Lego pieces to make 2  vehicles.

She made the crayons by peeling and melting regular crayons and baking in a mini figure mold from the Lego store.  She made the coloring book covers using building bricks style on photoshop from Scrap Girls.  The pages were made from coloring sheets available on  She got the vehicle pieces from the pick a brick wall at her local Lego store.

She made homemade iced sugar cokies in the shape of Lego bricks.  She cut out square cookies and small circle cookies.  After baking them she attached the small round ones to the larger ones with a small amount of icing.  Once they were dry she dipped the entire thing into the icing.  The cookie and icing recipes are from Wilton

All the kids had a great time building and playing.  Their creations were all so different and it was fun to see what they came up with.  There were also big ramps so they could race their vehicle against each other.  Even the adults joined in on the building fun.

In addition to the pottery the kids painted and the aprons she also handed out these amazing goodie bags.
