Minecraft party theme

Minecraft is becoming a popular theme at the moment for those kids who love this video game. For those of you who don’t know, Minecraft is a video game where players build worlds out of textured boxes.

It is still newish on the party scene so it is hard to find Minecraft partyware etc however there are lots of creative ways to theme this party and DIY ideas which you can find online (check out the “Real parties” section at the end of this blog post).

I’ve kept the selections here mainly to greens and some browns, as well as everything quite boxy to suit the theme!

Don’t forget that the talented vendors in the party directory can also assist you in creating something custom made to suit this theme so either contact someone in the Printables category or in the Handmade Decor category if you want something made (eg: invitation, garland, favour tags etc!) not to mention the talented businesses also listed who can create cookies, cakes, cake pops etc to match this theme!


Invitations and Printables

A full range of party printables for this theme:
