Many of my friends will know how much I love organising parties, but I didn’t have any plans for one for either of the boys’ birthdays this year. Quite simply because Jacob just cannot deal with the amount of people these days. For Noah’s birthday treat we took him to the local trampoline park and then out to Pizza Hut. It was quite last minute that we decided Jacob could have a few friends over for a tea party, and of course it had to have a theme to it. Because he is obsessed with both Lego and Harry Potter, we decided to cross the two; hence a Lego x Harry Potter themed tea party was born!
This was only two weeks before his birthday so as usual, Pinterest came to the rescue! I wanted a mixture of Harry Potter and Lego food & decor, rather than Harry Potter Lego. Considering the time frame I had, I think I did pretty well!
I didn’t actually get chance to take many planned photos because by the time everything was ready, it was school pick up time. Then throw five excited children into the mix, and it’s nigh on carnage! Maybe I’ll just have to have to do a mini tea party for the boys and make the food all over again 😉
Most of the food was Harry Potter themed as it was a bit more difficult and time consuming to create Lego themed food. I even made a menu which you can find here to print yourself!
We had a mixture of Harry Potter and Lego decor. The Husband & I
painstakingly created a “pin the head on the Lego man” game, and I printed off an invisibility cloak sign for an easy decor idea.
I conjured up (geddit?) these Harry Potter x Lego party bags. Inside each was a handmade wand, a Lego minifigure, a Harry Potter character mini notebook, and a Harry Potter themed sweetie cone which I made up. Inside the sweet cones were a chocolate frog, Bertie Blott’s every flavour beans, Gringotts coins, golden eggs, and some slithery snakes!
All of the children had a great time, and I’m kinda wishing I had a party bag too!
