Luke's 11th Minecraft Birthday Party (Part Two)

Luke invited a few of his buddies over to help celebrate his 11th birthday.  He loves that video game called Minecraft.  I know nothing about it, so he explained a few of the characters to me and I decided to go with the easiest guy (The Creeper) to design as the theme of his party.

This was the front of his invitation.  I went with a simple postcard style.

This was the backside of his invitation.  Apparently, the Creeper hisses...

I made some sugar cookies to resemble The Creeper.  I got the idea on Pinterest.

I only planned one official game.  I found it on Pinterest and it's called Tape Ball.  I wasn't sure if it would be a blast or a bomb, but the boys ended up LOVING it!  The game lasted about 15 minutes and they were engaged the whole time. 

The idea was for one kid to unravel the saran wrap and as they did each layer held at least one piece of candy.  At the same time another kid is rolling two die trying to roll a double.  Once they rolled a double the kid unravelling the saran ball had to stop and pass it to the next kid.

When the game was over I gave each boy an empty Creeper gift bag to hold all of their candy.

Skyler made Luke a custom Minecraft card... too cute!

Noah gave Luke this awesome candy maker!

My Creeper cake ended up looking more like a beaver, but nobody seemed to mind.

After the party was over we all relaxed for a couple of hours and then Hayley, Luke, Wes and I headed out to a Mariner's game at Safeco Field.

Happy Birthday Luke!  We love you man!  Let's schedule a hair appointment for early next week, k?!
