LEGO Birthday Week- LEGO invitations

Welcome to LEGO Week! We like big birthdays around here and this year our youngest asked for a Lego themed Birthday party.  I aim to please, so I quickly headed to Pinterest to scout out some of the finest Lego Party ideas around. Pretty soon I felt a little tap.tap. tap. on my shoulder…….but Mom….Can we just go to Legoland with my friends for my birthday party?

You see, this is where most parents could/would/probably should breathe a deep sigh of relief, make a phone call and shell out the cash for a worry free, no fail, great time had by all kinda party. Not me. I like the nostalgia of a good at- home party. Tons of  friends & family gathered round the kitchen table, homemade party hats, and corny birthday games. For whatever reason, I like that kinda thing. But I like my kid more. Certainly there was something that could make us both happy. Legoland must be included since that was the object of the birthday boys request but surely I could add some DIY touches as well. ( I think  DIY is my love-language. lol) Anyway…..In this LEGO Week blog series we will supply some creative LEGO party tips and later on this week get  full review on Legoland Discovery Center!!!

The first part of any great party is the invitations, so we will start there. I will often just order invites online vis Etsy or create photo ones on several of the online photo printing sites. Since we would need a good headcount for the party reservation, I needed to get our invites out asap. Pinterest was my go to on this one .  There were a ton of great ones  out there but we finally settled on using the template idea below from makoodle.com.

The Lego invite template was perfect, completely editable for our party( & free!!!). I just enlarged it to 5×7, filled in our party information, printed on photo paper to give it a glossy look and asked our sweet teacher to send home with the boys in their weekly parent folder.  While I just adored the Legos & clear pillow boxes with labels, we decided not to do those since it could be a distraction at school.**Tip: if you decide to include the Legos in the invitations Dollar Tree has “building blocks” that are great quality for something like this. I think they were 38 pieces for $1!!!

    • If I remember correctly I used an editing software ( my favorite is picmonkey.com). You could even save it and try just using paint on your computer.Let me know how it goes!

  4. And more important thing, turning to the theme that the recruiting agency in London in its work tends tto create
    their unique customer base byy completing the form, passing tests and consultations
    with agency. Doctors at a hospital in Istanbul are playing music as an unhsual form of medicine to patieents at
    Memorial hospital in the Turkish capital. Quick Tip
    – Approach your local Labor Department ffor a job.

  5. Hello Alice !
    Thank you so much for all the details about your invitations cards! It’s superb!

    I would like to ask you about the clear pillow boxes, what are the size and where are you bought them? Because I desire to create the same invitations cards but I didn’t found those objects anywhere! I live in UK!

    Thank you in advance for your response!

    Best,
    Cécile
