Minecraft Birthday Party

  Sorry the photo's are blurry.  I'm still stuck with my mom's I-phone camera right now.  And I still haven't gotten to my 4th of July yet, which is kinda lame, but I don't have my pictures downloaded yet.  If only I had my own camera... (I'm saving my pennies!!).  But, on to the good stuff... my brother really loves a game called Minecraft, so we decided to make that the main theme of his birthday party.  We printed out some Minecraft invites off of the internet.  Do you find it odd that it says why and how at the bottom?  It keeps nagging at me.
We then proceeded to create a minecraft dessert table based off of the minecraft grass block.  The whole game is all pixely and (ugly, annoying, lame, computer slowing, annoying, pointless, unintelligent) not very pretty.  Sorry. I don't like Minecraft.  I blame all of our computer problems on it.  My Question is, how is this (stupid) game popular???  After (or was it before?) we ate, we played minute-to-win-it games, which were lots of fun to watch and play.

For the pixel wall in the back, we used a rainbow cardstock pack.  We cut all the green and brownish colors into squares and taped them to the wall (after laying them out on the ground to check how they looked first).
Inside the goodie bags were packets of pop-rocks,  and cheap mini cans of silly string.  On the dessert table we had sprite mixed with limeade concentrate, gram crackers, Little Debbie Cakes (in chocolate and vanilla), extra giant marshmallows, paper wrapped chocolate bars, green gummy bears, cake (with a twix bar cheesecake filling!!!!!!!), and taffy.  On seeing the table, my dad said "there is no way they 12 kids can eat all that".  But he was very very wrong.  Have fun at your next party!

    1. I believe I got them online at CB2 under dining and serving pieces. The most expensive one is the biggest(but its still only $15). The small ones were only few bucks.

    1. Depends on which box you are talking about. One box is full of taffy, one has a cake, and another has a tray full of chocolate bars (wrapped in brown paper)

  6. I love minecraft! It seemed pointless until I tried it and now I *love* it... and there's no way it's ugly.... I've played some absolutely beautiful worlds. I liked the post, but kinda disappointing to go to a site for ideas only to read insults about the idea.

    1. Agreed! Show some enthusiasm at the fact that you made someone's day. It doesn't matter whether or not you like the game.
