Austin turns 6...a Lego party!

It's that time of year again! (Well, not really this post is only 8 months overdo...)  Austin's 6th birthday is here and we had to make it a great one.

Austin has been in love with Legos for years now and it seemed about time we had an awesome Lego party.  There are lots of Lego party ideas out there but here is our version.  It was a blast and everyone had a great time!

This is my sweet boy on his big day.  We used the tradition Lego color palette and made everything to match. I even made Austin and his sister these super cute Lego t-shirts.  I used some directions I found online for freezer paper stencils and a little fabric paint from the craft store and voila...cuteness!

I found some Lego font online and had it printed at Kinko's on a large scale printer and glued it to this red foam core board. We had the perfect space to hang it across from the dessert table.  It made a huge impact for just a few dollars.

I found a great set of printable Lego party goods online and used them to add a lot of fun little details to the party.  The water bottle labels, 'happy birthday' flags, mini chocolate bar wrappers, thank you tags and coloring book all came from Anders Ruff at

The Lego bricks in the background of this photo were empty Capri-Sun boxes wrapped in colored wrapping paper found at Target.

I also spent many months collecting large peanut butter jars so that I could paint them yellow and make large Lego head decorations like this one.  I think I had about 7 of them.  That's a lot of peanut butter!
The Lego man crayons were made from a ice tray mold I found at our local Lego store and the coloring book was also from  

This is the gift bag each child got at the end of the party! The Lego cars that each child made during the party were tucked inside as well.

My wonderful husband built this ramp for the kids to race the Lego cars they built on.  It was a hit!

More building...

Grandpas love building too.

Happy Birthday to Austin.

I love this little guy and his sweet smile!
