Minecraft Birthday Party

For my son’s 9th birthday, he decided he wanted a Minecraft theme. This was a lot of fun to make and he was so excited!

For the cake, we used Rice Krispy Treats which the kids thought was super cool. Due to his food allergies, we made ours from scratch but you could also buy a Rice Krispy Sheet or tray that is already made for easier prep. The best thing about making them from scratch or using a tray is that you can cut the squares any size that you would like. We used a 9 x 13 in pan, blue jello for the water, plain Rice Krispy treats for the sand, and Cocoa Rice Krispy treats with green icing for the dirt and grass. Add a few Minecraft Mini Figures like Steve and some Cows or Zombies and done!

My friend actually made this giant wall decoration made from light green, green and black square party plates. We used left over plates for the kids to gather their supplies (aka food).

She used hot glue to glue all of the plates to foam board which she also glued together. The result is in the picture. It was a great addition to the party.

Now for the awesome food!

I wish I could tell you how my friend made the super cute signs, but I’m not totally sure. I believe she used Google Images to cut and paste them together. However, I can tell you how I made the food.

We used..

  • Carrots – baby carrots
  • Sticks – pretzel sticks
  • Cookies – small chocolate chip cookies
  • Trap Doors- Window Pretzels
  • Diamonds – Blue hard candy (we bought ours at Party City, but attaching the Amazon link here in case you need a lot of them)
  • Emeralds – same as Diamonds, except in green
  • Iron – Hershey Nuggets
  • Gold- Hershey Nuggets
  • Mushrooms – these were fun, white jumbo puffy marshmallows topped with red icing and white chocolate chips.
  • Watermelon – watermelon taffy

Add Sprite bottles with labels peeled and turned into Creepers with a sharpie, and green party cups and a party was made!

Pokemon’s Pikachu Perler Bead Project

This super cute little guy was based off a pixelated image created by Kandi Patterns and was made by a nine year old.

She used the pixel image to count and drop the yellow, white, black and red Perler beads into place to form Pikachu.

We used the masking tape method (see Perler for more info) to tape off sections when the project was ready for ironing. Using a large piece of cardboard and ironing paper, we were able to get him melted. (Unfortunately, she was ironing it on a table that was old and had some indentions in it) However, overall he still came out pretty great!

Drop me a comment or picture if you try this cute pattern out! Would love to know see your project!

Nintendo Game Cube Perler Bead Pattern

2017-09-06 17.37.03.jpg

My son’s friend created this awesome Perler bead design to represent the Nintendo Game Cube. He used purple, black, white, orange, and gray beads on a hexagon grid. Once melted, the finished project looked like this… I liked it from both the front and the back sides of the cube.

Faygo Cotton Candy Bottle turned into a Perler Bead Project??

One day, my son, his friend and I were all sitting at the table creating Perler Bead projects.  My son’s friend had this drink with him and said it was one of his favorites.  The result- a Perler Bead Faygo Cotton Candy project of course!  Below is his design.  Unfortunately, I forgot to get a melted picture of it, but it turned out pretty great!

Beads used:  white, glitter white, glitter blue, pink, cranberry, blue, and light blue.  You can get all of these colors at your local craft store or at Amazon.  You can buy them by individual colors or a mixed bag.

Undertale Party Part 3 – Pet Rock Cake, Snowman Piece, Doughnuts and More

As we wrap up our Undertale Birthday Party, we found a few more photos and ideas to share.   My son and friends had a great time with this party and I had a great time preparing it.  Anything linked below links to Amazon or if we didn’t come up with it, the original idea.

Pet Rock Cake

Undertale Birthday Party Pet Rock CakeFor this cake, we made a circular cake and tried to shape it similar to a rock.  We added chocolate icing and sprinkles to make it look like the Google image (Really hope it’s from the game- kids didn’t seem to mind either way.)  Printed that same Pet Rock Google image, made a table tent and done!  A very easy cake! Pet Rock original idea here.

 

 

 

 

 

Undertale Birthday Party Spider Donuts

For this idea, we tried to recreate Pretty Cake Machines‘s idea but had a hard time.  (She also has a version of the Snowman Piece below). Our result is above.  For the recipe, we used store bought doughnuts instead of  made from scratch. It made the recipe a lot easier but didn’t look as neat.  Once again, I turned the Google Image into a table tent and Spider Doughnuts were done!

Undertale Birthday Party Snowman Piece

For our version of the Snowman piece, we used wedding cookies.  We dipped them in extra powered sugar and added a couple to each cupcake liner.  It was super simple and was one of the last things I put together.

Undertale Birthday Star Yogurt Parfait

For this recipe, I used an idea from Jaybug Jimmies.  The link is a dead link but I found the pin here.  For this idea, I used a Star cookie cutter, small cups and vanilla yogurt.  I added some yogurt into different bowls with a few drops of food coloring.  Once mixed, I added each color by layer into the cups.

Undertale Birthday Party Flower Decoration

Undertale Birthday Party Flower

For this decoration, we used yellow butcher paper to cut out a flower shape.   My friend and her amazing drawing abilities sketched the face onto white copy paper using a black sharpie.  Leaves were cut out from green paper and green streamers made up the rest.

Undertale Party Part 2- Straws, Banners, Labels and More

For this part of my party planning, I turned to a little site called Etsy.  This party kit was made by Susaneda Printables in Granada, Spain.  It is an instant download and I’m not sure of the current price but I paid $13.71.    Once I downloaded the pdf, I was able to send the pages that I wanted to Office Depot for color copies printed on cardstock.  It was a great success and I highly recommend it.

This kit allowed me to do all the following for his party.  For the banners, I just used twine from the dollar store and tape.

Baby Boy Shower- Part 2, Fruit, Vegetables and Water

Baby Made with Fruit, Baby Shower, Carriage watermelon

Part 2 of my sister’s baby shower includes an awesome fruit baby laying in a watermelon carriage. My friend designed this by first cutting out the watermelon to resemble a carriage.  We then cut and peeled a cantaloupe in which she cut in half.  Half of it upside down became the baby’s head, while the other half became pieces of his blanket, ears and nose.  Add a piece of lettuce for hair, some grapes for eyes and an actual baby pacifier and you have an awesome baby head.

For the blanket, she used sliced strawberries, watermelon (from the left over part she cut away), grapes and additional cantaloupe pieces.  It turned out to be a great centerpiece for the table.

After the baby carriage, we still had left over fruit so…. fruit kabobs were fruit kabobs baby showeradded to the menu.   We just added the fruit in nice patterns on a bamboo skewer then laid them on a nice serving tray.

For the vegetable section of the table, I purchased a vegetable tray already prepared at Sam’s Club and a bag of peppers.  (I found it cheaper than purchasing everything separately- plus the tray traveled well.)

We cut the peppers into tiny bowls, laid them on the try and filled them with the contents of the vegetable tray.  I was very happy with the way it turned out.

 

 

The water that you can see in the picture above and with the picture below was super easy to make.  IMG_4212

My kids helped with this part by removing all the water bottle labels and taping cute, decorative both small and large)  ribbon in its place.

Rainbow Dash Perler Bead Pattern

This cute Perler bead pattern was one of my daughter’s favorites, (she even hung this one up in her room.  We used the Command Velcro pieces to attach it without damaging the wall.)  Original pixel art done by Kandi Patterns and features a baby Rainbow Dash sprite from My Little Pony.

This piece uses light blue, red, orange, yellow, purple, green, white, black and dark purple beads.  If you need additional beads, Amazon has some great selections.  The tray here is a great variety of beads already presorted.

Baby Boy Shower Part 1 -Punch, Baby Deviled Eggs and Pretzel Sticks

Baby Shower Boy Punch DucksRecently I was nominated to throw my sister a baby shower for her little boy.  I immediately started combing Pinterest and the Internet for ideas and was in luck on several of them.

This punch came from http://www.brandiraae.com and was a big hit.  All it needed was Blue Hawaiian Punch, Vanilla Ice Cream, Sprite and ducks! (You can check out her site if you need amounts of ingredients)

It was super easy to make.  We just carried the supplies and punch bowl to the shower, and it took about 5 minutes to put together. We added a ladle and cups to and it was an instant success.  I highly recommend this for your next shower.

 

Pretzel Sticks for Baby Boy Shower Food

Another great idea came from ourdelightfulhome.blogspot.com which is now a dead site.  However, using the picture, we were able to figure out this awesome little snack.  We used large pretzel rods, white candy melts, blue sprinkles, ribbon and spoon bags (found in the cake decorating aisle).

First, we laid out parchment paper and poured the blue sprinkles over the middle. Next, we melted the candy melts and used a spatula to spread the melted candy over the pretzel.  Before it had time to harden, we rolled the pretzel in the blue sprinkles.  Once hardened, we slid the pretzel into the bag, added a ribbon and had a nice little neat snack!

If you notice in that last picture, the cute little Chex  Mix Buddies treat…..  That idea came from ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com and used cute little blue polka dot cupcake liners that I bought from Party City or from Amazon here.  All we did was add some Chex Mix Buddies and blue Sixlets and we had a great little snack and decoration.

Deviled Eggs Babies- Baby Shower

This idea pictured on the left came from key ingredient. com (Official recipe is linked on their site above.)  These deviled eggs were made like you would normally make  them, but the egg white was cut down and off the side to create a baby carriage. Cute little Vienna Sausages were added for the faces.

The recipe called for chocolate sprinkles for the eyes but I had forgotten to pick some up at the store so instead I used an edible marker to draw the eyes on.  If I did it again, I would definitely try the sprinkles. The marker ran a little and made some small alien looking babies.

Overall, I would definitely use all 3 of these recipes if I found myself needing to throw another shower.

I will be adding more Shower Pics and Ideas in the next couple of days.  If you would like to see more ideas from this shower, they can be found in the menu at the top under birthday parties, boy baby shower.  Or just click here!
