In 2009 Minecraft was born and in the 10 years since it has become one of the best selling video games of all time! What may seem like a simple game about building and exploring has become a global phenomenon. When playing Minecraft, players must beware of the zombie, spider, enderman, creeper and skeleton but party goers may get excited to see these tie-ins to their favorite game in the form of decorations, activities and party favors. Get inspired by these characters, icons, patterns and activities of this game for your little one’s Minecraft Birthday Party using our guide!
This party was styled, shot and written about by Tara from Spot of Tea Designs. Check out her blog where she’s been building up a stockpile of great party ideas.

Minecraft Party Decorations
You can transform your dining room into the blocky façade of the Minecraft world thanks to our stone wall backdrop. With 30 ft of grey stones, you have plenty of material to cover your wall and any boxes turned risers on your dessert table.
Drape a jointed banner across the back to send your “happy birthday” message loud and clear! Tip: separate it to create a double line. Use fishing line and command hooks to display it.
Let friends hone their inner creeper with matching party hats.

Minecraft Party Food and Drink
Cows, pigs and chicken are featured in the game so make sure to feature them as your Minecraft party lunch options too. Hamburger sliders, pigs in a blanket and chicken numbers are all easy finger foods to serve up to your hungry tweens.
When it comes to the desserts, turn to the blocks and items of the game for inspiration on what to serve. Turn these Minecraft bag tags into food labels to display these food names.
Bake a square cake, frost with white icing and cut red square shapes to decorate using red Fruit Roll Ups.
Cut watermelon triangle slices, like the melon design.
Brownies with green grassy icing are easily a grass block. Tip: Wilton tip #233 can make this happen!
And cookies? Well they’re cookies.
Throw in a little gold candy in the form of Hershey’s nuggets and powdered donut “snowballs” and this will surely be a dessert buffet Steve and Alex would approve!
Minecraft Party Activities
The design style of Minecraft is all blocks and pixels. Follow the game’s lead and put together a melty bead station where you build based on pixels. Download printable design sheets, lay out clear boards, plenty of bead colors and let guests complete their favorite Minecraft character or icon. Tip: have an adult armed at the iron for the melting station to keep everyone safe.
No need to stay 3 blocks away from the Minecraft Creeper Pinata. This modern safer party activity can be done even in the smallest space. Each guest holds a string and they all pull it at the same time. Only one opens the door to release all your party candy and treasures, but no one will know who actually gave it a go!
