DIY Minecraft Party

DIY Minecraft Party

Hello DIY Minecraft Party, all my now 10 year old son talks about is Minecraft. He would watch Minecraft How To Videos on YouTube for hours if we allowed him. I must admit I’ve never played the game and until I decided to make it the theme for his 10th birthday party, I didn’t know much about the game. It’s like the digital version of Lego’s but it has more of a Nintendo pixel like design.

Since I was unfamiliar with the game I had research to do in order to pull this off. I also consulted my son on my findings to make sure I was accurately representing. His image is on the line apparently and I’m bucking for Best Mom ever. This is what I came up with.

I started out with the invitation, I tossed this together quickly. We had so much going on I planned this entire party in two and a half weeks. I wanted it to be like an actual ticket to an event. As it turns out the kids thought this was cool. Cool points for Mommy. I made this in PowerPoint. DIY Minecraft Party has put me in good rankings for at least 3 months.

Each table was set with a plate, napkin, Potion of healing (water) and a Minecraft wrist band. I got the wrist bands from Ebay; they were less than $1.00 for each band. The center pieces represented the different things in the game. They were also carried out in the party favors.

A closer look at each setting, I created the labels, printed them out and then laminated them. They have a lot of “potions” in the Minecraft game but I stuck with this one. Everyone needs some healing right?

These jars (I got them from Michael’s) made up the center pieces on all the tables. The mini versions went in the party bags. It was a lot of fun deciding on which to use. The Diamonds were rock candy here but I actually used jellybeans of the same color for the party bags.

I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the bottle and added the labels to the outside. I also created the labels in PowerPoint. As you can see I went with an Emerald green, lime green and black color scheme.

This was the gift table, it includes party favor bags and then we added birthday gifts to the mix. I purchased the Steve head from Target; apparently it was a popular Halloween costume this year. (I had no idea) I added in a few gold nuggets for decoration.

“Thanks for making my birthday party the bomb!” I’m all about finding images online to support the theme and editing them to my liking. I used the Microsoft Office font OCR A Extended, it was perfect for the theme.

This is the dessert table. I went with cupcakes instead of a regular cake.

I ordered the cupcakes from my local bakery. I had them put a lime green spray on the white frosting and I created these cupcake toppers. Again I created the images in PowerPoint, cut them out, laminated them and used a hot glue gun to secure a toothpick to the back. I added in two bottles with polka dot straws and Minecraft bands around the jar. I completed the look with several gold nuggets.

I love my cookie lady, she always gets it right. These Minecraft sugar cookies were a total hit, they look good but they taste amazing. Every year I get phone calls asking if there are more cookies because they are just that good. She is out of NY but ships anywhere in the US.

I took the features of the game and used them as party favors. This is what was inside of the party favor bags.

  • Fish: Gummy Swedish fish
  • Melon: Gummy sour watermelons
  • Gold: Gold wrapped Hershey bars
  • Redstone: Jelly beans
  • Emeralds: Jelly beans
  • Iron: Silver wrapped Hershey bars
  • Diamonds: Jelly beans
  • Sticks: Pretzel sticks
  • Trap Door: Chez Its
  • TNT: Wrapped Twizzlers

Nasir’s DIY Minecraft party (Pixel Party) was a total hit. Thanks to all of our family and friends for sharing this special day with us. We will do it again in 3 years.

    Hi – what great ideas! Thanks for sharing! Can you please share the printables for the favors (the little tags that say “fish” “sticks”, etc.? Thanks so much!!!

  21. Johanne

    Hy. Your party theme is mine too and I am inspired more I almost gave up. Great job. My theme is double . Game truck then minecraft table decor cake etc. my local party store do not have anything but plates. I need help with the Microsoft and how to get that done and also where did you get the wrist band and where was the one stop for the candy. Or places. Johanne thanks. this is my correct email.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Don’t give up Johanne. If your local party store doesn’t have it check Wal-Mart, Five Below and Hobby Lobby if you have any of these stores in your area they also have party supplies. If you have time you could also order online. My laptop is currently broken 🙁 so I can’t access any of my files right now. Check Pinterest for the lables, I used some I found there and then made them my own. I got the wrist bands from Ebay, just search Minecraft bracelets and see what comes up. I purchased most of the candy from my local Target. If you have a Party City they also have candy.

  22. Lynne


    love the ideas, could you please share with me how you created the TNT thank you tag and the candy tags?

    Thank you

My son is having a swim party next weekend {not really an at home themed party}, but loves minecraft, so I thought I’d send the kids home with a minecraft themed goodie bag. Would you mind sharing your darling bag toppers and food toppers with me? Love those! Thanks in advance!
