Once again, I had the honor of styling this party for Wholesale Party Supplies using their fun line of Minecraft party goods. While many of these tips are theme specific, some are just general bits of advice about party planning! See the full collection of my party hacks post here.
- Camouflage your risers. The stone wall backdrop used for this Minecraft party comes in a 30 ft roll. That’s plenty to use directly behind your dessert table, along the full wall of your party space or to wrap cardboard boxes used to vary the height of your dessert table.
- Create your own desserts. You don’t have to have a bakery to create themed foods that the kids will love. The cake here is a boxed cake, frosted with white icing and with red fruit roll ups cut into squares as the decoration. The “grass blocks” are just brownies topped with my new favorite tip #233 that looks like grass!
- Transform your seating! Create no-sew Creeper chair covers using fabric and hot glue to transform those basic aluminum chairs we all have.
- Break out your toys. If you’re child already has toys featuring the theme’s characters, use them in your party setup!
- Don’t hang the piñata yet. Pinatas are fun as a party activity, but they can also be used prior to play on your dessert table as a decoration.
- Don’t feel like you have to hide everything. When doing wall backdrops, I tend to try my best to hide my painter’s tape usage and create loops behind the backdrop. But in this case, my FrogTape brand painter’s tape was the exact color of the party scheme so I kept it visual as a clean line across the top.
- Mix party basics with licensed items. One of my favorite budget saving party hacks includes transforming basic solids into a themed item from a brand. In this case, I created a simple printable wrap that can be added to red cups to represent the TNT icons used in Minecraft. Grab this free printable for your party!
