A Well-Built Minecraft Boy’s Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Minecraft is a pixelated phenomenon that has captured the minds and imaginations of kids around the world, making it an amazing party theme choice! Liezl Del Castillo, Professional Party Planner and photographer from Zelicious, put her own spin on decorations for the Minecraft boy’s birthday party theme. Planned for her son, Oscar, Liezl combined ideas for the dessert table birthday cake, party games and favors to create one well-built celebration.

To bring in elements reminiscent of game play, the dessert table was set up on a black tablecloth with faux grass used as the runner. A printable Minecraft-inspired banner hung form the table front.  Marquee signs displayed birthday wishes and an invitation for guests to help themselves to the party treats and favors neatly displayed on trays and wooden crates.

Desserts looked delicious and included chocolate and green tea matcha donuts, macarons, rum balls, jelly, cookies and custom wrapped chocolate bars. I love how colorful baking cups and cute toppers, labels and custom stamped utensils added to the fun details.

The cake was a definite dessert table centerpiece and definitely looks like a labor of love.  Look at all of the individual “pixels” of fondant used to create the Minecraft masterpiece!

Cake and ice cream go together well.  So, in addition to the main dessert table, an ice cream bar was arranged for guests with a real, soft-serve ice cream machine.  I love how the toppings were chosen to resemble Minecraft objects like sticks, coal, lapis lazuli, emeralds and such. The pixelated signage helped to reinforce the theme in a creative way.
