My son turned 7 so of course wanted a Minecraft party because doesn't every little boy?? :) I included some of the graphics I created for the party - feel free to print and use for yours.

I created the invite and uploaded it to pinng.com to send as an evite.

Minecraft cake



































I got a lot of help with the cake from watching this video. I used this cake recipe for the grass blocks and it worked beautifully. The "sand blocks" are just basic rice krispies, water is blue jello and the icing is this.

Minecraft coloring book labels
 The Minecraft coloring book labels need to be cut out, folded in half and stapled to the top of the coloring pages.
 I found all the Minecraft coloring images here but shrunk them all down to make the mini books. They were a big hit!

I put these food labels in plastic 4x6 frames from Walmart.

A Stuffed Animal Birthday Party

Decorating was cheap because I just used stuffed animals Violet already had. I ordered unstuffed animals from here for the kids to stuff and keep. They LOVED it. I tried to replicate this cake (couldn't find a direct link) as best I could but added some candy pearl "polka-dots" and some gold sprinkle/dust at the base. I got my animal toppers from Hobby Lobby.

A Dollhouse for Violet































I was lucky enough to have been given this fantastic collapsible wooden dollhouse from the 60's and it was in great shape and I loved the look of it. I immediately went to work, and a month later (and many, many late nights later), I surprised my girl with a fully furnished and decorated dollhouse. I enjoyed every glue and paint-covered minute of it.

This vintage dollhouse is a Creative Playthings Slot-Together Dollhouse designed by Roger Limbrick. More info here.
