|Lego birthday invitations|
I enjoy party planning and find that when I have a theme I'm most inspired. That being said I had legos running through my dreams for weeks.
Of course, the theme started with the invitations. I found two different lego fonts online and used them on his first birthday invitations to create a "1." On the opposite side of the card I glued six large circles to make it look like a lego piece.
I used one of the same fonts to print out Lego letters and lego men to make a "Happy Birthday" banner. I think it came out pretty cute...although it did take some time.
On the table, I made a rectangular utensil holder out of legos. The paper products I just did basic colors like red, yellow, and blue so I could keep the cost down, but still tie in the theme. If you are looking for Lego themed birthday supplies like plates, napkins, table clothes, favors, or pretty much anything else for a lego party, Oriental Trading Company has tons of options.
For the Lego cake I actually found the recipe and design on the Betty Crocker website. It's actually easier than it looks...or at least I suspect it would be for most. You just bake a 9x13 box cake and then cut it in thirds. One of the thirds you cut in half to make two small squares. I will say, icing it was kind of a challenge...but maybe that's because I'm not very skilled with an icing knife. The lego bumps are actually large marshmallows cut in half. (Freeze them first so they're easier to cut and ice.)

I found an Etzy store that sold shirts with the lego theme print and ordered one with my son's name on the front and the number 1 on the back.
What birthday party themes have you gotten really into? I'd love to hear about your party planning!
