Are your kids into Minecraft? I’ve really, REALLY tried to be. They call me every few minutes while they are playing to show me some two story house they built with a pool, or shout “come quick Mom! It’s a creeper!!!” and then some pixelated supposed zombie thing crosses the screen.

Maybe that’s my problem with Minecraft. My generation had Atari, Mario in it’s infancy and that worm game.

Since that time it’s been a never ending quest for my generation to fight for our posterity by offering better graphics, more realistic looking games and games with increasingly more difficult skill level.

So why go back in time?

I just don’t get it. But maybe that’s the great thing about having kids–I’m not meant to “get it” anymore.

But I can throw one great Minecraft Party for them. With my son turning eight, I knew we were going to have a Minecraft Party. Have you looked at the stores? There aren’t any Minecraft decorations to fall back on as a quick and easy solution for a party. So it was time to fall back on option #2–the DIY version.

We searched and scoured the internet for great ideas and while we borrowed some ideas from other sites, we did come up with a few of our own new ones too. Okay, 25 different resources to be exact!

1. CREEPER BALLOON GARLAND

Balloon Garland by Burnt Apple

Creeper balloons: We blew up balloons in blue, green and black and strung them on a garland. We then cut out Minecraft figure faces and glued or taped them to them.

2. MINECRAFT BANNER

Minecraft Garland by Burnt Apple

A simple and easy banner, we cut out scraps of construction paper into even sized squares. We then hot glued the tops of the banner to a ribbon and made a garland. Afterwards, we took lettering and spelled out “Minecraft Party.”

3. CREEPER JUICE

Creeper Juice by Burnt Apple

Covering a pitcher with a ribbon of scrapbook paper was simple and easy to do. Write “creeper juice” and stick whatever you want in it. We made lemonade and cut up fresh fruit.

4. HEROBRINE CAKE

Okay, so this is NOT my proudest of cakes. (See picture in collage above). But when I posted it on Instagram I got a few nods of sympathy. THANK YOU! We made a 9×13 inch chocolate cake (we followed the Hersheys recipe) and frosted it with the Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Frosting, saving 1/2 cup for later use. I then made a separate Hershey’s cake but halved the recipe and put that into squared brownie pans and baked them. When I pulled them out I let them cool then cut them into small cubes. I made this buttercream recipe for one and kept a tsp of it white and dyed the remaining green with my Nature’s Flavors natural food dyes.  I then dipped the tops of the cubes into chocolate, white, or green frosting and pressed the cubes into the top of the chocolate cake until I assembled a Herobrine cake.

5. MINECRAFT OUTDOOR PARTY IDEAS

Lo and behold, there actually are some decorations available to purchase for a Minecraft party. While some of the prices are alittle over my budget, there are some fun items you might want for your party. Although I don’t quite know what to think about the above creeper heads. But it could work for Halloween.

  5. Hello and thank you for this round-up! I can’t believe, almost a year after you initially posted this, that things really haven’t progressed in terms of the stores catching on to the Minecraft craze. Here in the UK I found one party company that offers Minecraft parties and they quoted me £600 (almost $1000) – and that excludes venue hire, food and cake! That’s just a BIT over my budget, so I’m going the DIY route. One thing I’ve found, that you don’t have on here, is a YouTube playlist of Minecraft ‘parody’ music videos based on current hits. I’m planning to project that onto a wall and do a Minecraft ‘disco’ of sorts. Fingers crossed! I may blog about it when I’m done and, if I do, will link back to your post. Cheers!
