Details
Normally mama goes all out for Malik’s birthday party, but this year was different. We had a new baby and so it had to be an easier party to put together. Throwing a party, however small is a challenge with a 5 week old and two big brothers! Thankfully, my sweet cousin Reema was there to help me bake & set up.

Malik really wanted to have his party at Lego Land Discovery Center. Having a party out of the house is definitely easier but I didn’t want it to loose that personal touch that at home parties have. Working within their rules, I was able to come up with a fun and creative The Lego Movie inspired party.

Tablescape
The party room was so colorful. The tables and chairs were in bright colors so I didn’t need to add much. I opted for paper table runners. I love Targets party section. There are these rolls of wrapping paper that are $1.50 each. They are the perfect width for a table runner and come in fun colors and patterns. I used the orange diagonal  stripe paper for the tables.

I made simple center pieces using gumballs and yellow ceramic berry baskets. I added a homemade paper “Emmett” holding a flag that said “Happy Birthday Malik”. I would have loved to add some colorful balloons but balloons were not allowed in the party room.

I made lego men decals out of red glitter vinyl and put them on cute little milk bottles that I purchased from the Petite Party Studio shop. I also got the cool red plates from there. The red stripe wooden forks were from The Sucre Shop. I adore their wooden cutlery!

Finally, I added a crinkle taffeta chair sash to each chair. I have a box of chair sashes from parties past and thought, “why not”?!

Desserts
The Lego Discovery Center staff was so amazing. They let me set up a little mini dessert table. The most challenging part was to keep things simple. Simple desserts and super simple decor.

In the spirit of simplicity. I made only a handful of desserts. My cousin made the delicious French vanilla cupcakes topped with chocolate lego bricks. Chocolate covered marshmallows with mini chocolate lego figures, jello cups with chocolate lego figures and amazing Lego Movie sugar cookies {made by the always awesome Sandy from Firefly Confections}. Just to let you know how much I adore Sandy because she sends me texts like “I only work in black and sometimes very very dark grey”.  LOL. I heart her!

The blue butter cream cake was made by My Sweet Things. I know, swirls for a boy but I think it works so well. Malik really wanted a blue cake this year. I topped the cake with two lego movie character plastic figures {they are actually pens so “yay” for an added bonus of being useful} and a little Happy Birthday flag.

Favors
I’m a firm believer in useful favors. Each kid took home a personalized beach bucket filled with goodies. A Lego Movie sketch / sticker book, homemade lego crayons, a Lego Movie mini figure, and a pencil. I wish I was the genius who thought of the homemade lego crayons – that honor goes to Anders Ruff. They have an awesome tutorial on their site if you want to learn how to make them yourself. Warning, making lego crayons is totally addictive. I had plans on making only a few colors and that morphed into 6 colors.

I hope you enjoyed our “Everything is Awesome” Lego Movie party inspiration! Spaceships, Spaceships, Spaceships!!!
