A Boy’s Modern Lego Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Brick by brick, this boy’s Lego birthday party designed and built lovingly by creative mom Bethany Farrar, of Sweet Georgia Sweet, is party perfection!  Planned for her son, Walker’s, 8th birthday, the crisp and modern style will leave you yearning for more beautiful photos captured by Lisa Housman of Party of Seven Photography. Legos are a popular toy for children of just about any age, but they’re particularly popular with boys!  This theme was chosen because the darling guest of honor and his daddy love spending their free time creating and building Lego masterpieces.  I happen to think that a party theme built on something near and dear to the guest of honor’s heart is a perfect foundation—get ready to be wowed by this fresh take on a Lego birthday party.  From Lego topped cupcakes to bright decorations to thoughtful party favors, this party was built to impress!

The Lego themed party was kicked off with colorful and creative invitations designed by IDEA Event Style. Guests were invited to “come build a birthday party”!  I love the creative use of a clear box style “envelope” with a few Lego pieces inserted to impress and excite recipients.  You’ll notice these types of simple, but well-executed details throughout the party.  According to Bethany, Walker helped in the planning. They spent a great deal of time talking about the party setup, and Walker went so far as to draw a rendering of how he thought the party should look. What a fun bonding experience!

What immediately catches my attention about this Lego party is Bethany’s use of a white backdrop and crisp white linens which allow the colorful Lego inspired details in red, yellow, blue and green to really shine.  The creative use of tissue balls from Pom Love pair perfectly with the triangle pennant garland Bethany made. The table looks coordinated and colorful, but fresh and clean.  Each side of the table was flanked with clear confetti balloons from The Flair Exchange.

To satisfy the hunger that seems to build and build in little guests, Bethany served lunch and a variety of sweet treats.  Each child had their own lunch box (Pink Lemonade Party) to enjoy before delving into the cake and sweets. The Lego detailing on the front is so cute.  The Lego head accent on the milk bottles was another fab detail. Both of these were created by Stampin Fanatic. The paper straws from More Sprinkled Joy were a perfect accent.

I happen to think the DIY birthday banner Bethany created was also pretty amazing!  Her son loved it so much, that after serving as party décor, it is now hanging in his bedroom.

Wondering what Bethany did at this boy’s Lego party to keep guests entertained?  She invited her son’s guests to bring their Lego collections.  Upon arrival, guests were divided into teams. They loved this creative element and so do I!  What a simple way to provide guests with action packed entertainment without a whole lot of hassle. Guests were invited to create their own Lego masterpieces and even some of the moms and dads got in on the action.

Each guest received a custom candy wand created by the talented Lisa Frank of Hand Crafted Parties to take home. What a sweet ending to a well-built party!
