Block Party!

We love brick building themed parties. It combines two of our favorite things: celebrations and building! So if you are looking for a fun theme for a party, we’ve got you covered, regardless of your DIY skills level. Here are some great ways to incorporate brick building into your big shindig:

Brick décor is pretty easy to do. The logo and many bricks are easily recognizable basic colors, so red, yellow, green, and blue decorations will work well. You can even make your own decorations fairly easily. The birthday person will love seeing their name spelled out in bricks—hopefully, their name isn’t too long! If you want to make a banner or invitations, you can use rectangles of colored paper as the base of your brick, trace the bottom of a cup onto the same colored paper, and put them on top as the “studs” with 3d foam tape. The same technique will work on solid-color gift bags if you decide to give any out—fill them with bricks, of course! You can also “disguise” juice boxes this same way. If you’re looking for something bigger, tissue boxes are also the perfect brick shape. Wrap them in solid colored paper, make holes in it, and fit colored plastic cups inside. They will look great stacked around the gift table. You can draw faces on solid yellow paper cups to make them look like minifig faces. Be sure to make some silly ones! We also like the idea of using bricks as placecards. For centerpieces, you can fill nearly any container with bricks and leave it in the middle of the table. Either you can encourage them to, or when your guests get bored, they can build with the pieces! You can also make your own utensil holders, coasters, and napkin dispenser with bricks.

They sell cake molds in the shape of bricks if you are the baking type; they are worth it—the cake will look AWESOME, especially if you are any good with fondant. Also, cake pops can be made in the shape of minifig heads, too. That is always a crowd pleaser, and the sticks can be held by actual minifigs! We have also found hard candy in the shape of bricks that you can actually stack. Fun and delicious! Or, if you are not baking inclined or internet-savvy enough to search for and order these types of things, you can always build little shapes out of new, CLEAN, bricks and add those to the top of cupcakes or a cake. You can also build a brick cake, either using round or square blocks and candles; although it will look cool, unfortunately, it won’t be edible, though.

If you are into games, you can get mini build sets and see who can build them the fastest, or put out a bunch of blocks and then vote to see who made the coolest thing out of the bricks. That works for kids or adults, in case you were wondering. We also like pin-the-head-on the-minifig. The sillier you make the minifig faces, the more fun the game will be! Or, you can get a bunch of minifig pieces and have the guests “build” themselves!

Can you tell we’ve thrown a few of these ourselves?

Brick-building parties can be a lot of fun. Just let your imagination be your guide.
