Let's Go Lego!

Today we’re taking a journey into the land of endless colourful opportunity… LEGO!!! What I love about this theme is you can apply it to any gender! The endless options of colours and Lego characters available allows for a completely bespoke party theme.

The timeless, instantly recognisable blocks have built countless forts, pony stables and castles and what better way to celebrate with a theme exuding fun and creativity.

Here’s a brilliant idea to entertain the children; LEGO DRESS UP! From the hair to the outfits or even yellow face paint, a Lego Dress-Up Station filled with colourful plain t-shirts and black shorts provides the perfect activity to get the children involved in the theme, bringing it to life.

Lego Sweetie bags are a brilliant idea. Again, the contents can be altered and the bag can be customised with names and images! If you want to get really inventive, the bags could be tied up with coloured ribbon holding pieces of different Lego as weights. The balloons could be also weighted with Lego shaped blocks… I could go on and on. The below sweetie bags by Les Enfants are adorable and unisex with little chocolate Lego men and theme coloured jelly beans!


Right, so I know these jars are more of a party storage for the Lego pieces, but what if they were your party favours too? This way they could double up and add a personal touch for the children to take away with them to remember the party! Also, if you want to get creative you could make these yourself! Save Jars of all shapes and size (maybe pasta sauce jars?!) which you have used and would usually throw away, pick up some yellow paint and a few paint brushes and get creative! This way you can add different expressions, hair, names? You can even write the date of the party on the back as a keep sake! Or why not making this an activity for the children? Paint them all yellow prior to the party, and each child can decorate their 'face' to take home?! Endless opportunities here!!



I ABSOLUTELY love the different expressions on these Lego cake pops. This is also something customisable for your little one’s special day, you could even add little girl Lego hair! The fact that the pops are also contained in a little Lego quarry is not only inventive, but extremely useful! Once the cake pops have been eaten, the Lego can be broken down for play time (with adult supervision depending on the age range of course!)
Party invites for this theme can come in different shapes and sizes depending on your budget! A well designed traditional invite with a themed design is functional and easily changeable depending on colour schemes. However, another option could be as seen below, containing a little gift of Lego pieces to get the excitement and imagination flowing!


As stated, there is a real opportunity for creativity with this theme. Depending on the age range (you may need adult supervision for this) Lego building tournaments are a great way to get the children involved in nice clean fun! This could be tailored around the gender or interests of the birthday dude/dudette with a 'build a castle' competition or 'build a house' or maybe even a 'build a racing car'! This can even get the children working together in little teams  for imaginative fun. 

Another great way to personalise your party is by these individual Lego boards! These boards can be what ever you want them to be... how about arrows directing the guests around the party? WHAT ABOUT arrows leading a Lego treasure hunt? This really can enhance any party for such minimal effort and cost. 


And just a taster of our lego party to come!

The main feature of this theme is the flexibility it can provide, ensuring an individual and perfectly constructed party which children can enjoy and interact with. The possibilities and ideas are endless, just know, that whatever the child, whatever the budget – this party theme is one to be enjoyed for all the family and for years to come.


Have a great week everyone! x
