Everything was awesome! Jack’s 6th birthday party featured LEGOs, robotics, good food, family and friends, and custom crayon creations to top it all off. The best part of the day was seeing Jack and his friends get creative with LEGO robotics. While it took a lot of time and effort to pull the whole thing together, I did want to try and keep it as simple as possible. It took a lot of help from friends and family and was a wonderful celebration in our home. I wanted to go ahead and share my top takeaways from planning the event in case you have your own little person who’s growing up way too fast. It didn’t seem like too long ago when we were celebrating Jack’s 5th birthday!
Per usual I commissioned A Pretty Little Party to do the invitation. Natalie always nails it and one of these days I will print it out for his scrapbook.
Jack absolutely loves everything and anything to do with LEGO - Legoland, LEGO Movie 2, etc, so the theme came together very quickly. Custom LEGO figures made from recycled crayons by Art 2 the Extreme in his favorite color – teal – along with a metallic blue balloon and a blue, green and yellow balloon garland provided the vibrant color backdrop for the party.
When it comes to creativity in the Kitchen, my mom is a master. She spent four hours whipping up homemade egg rolls, potstickers, and fried rice. I commissioned one of the moms from Jack’s last school to make the incredible rainbow LEGO shaped JELLO cake and tasted incredible.
While the adults chatted and caught up with each other, the kids had the time of their lives assembling awesome LEGO creations.
The key for pulling something like this off is to assemble a team of amazing experts who can help execute the party of your kids’ wildest dreams.
