My Boy’s 7th Birthday: A Lego Movie Party

Emilio turns 7 246 copy

When my boy turned seven recently, all he wanted to do was watch his favorite The Lego Movie again.  But since turning seven is big in our family (and in Filipino culture in general), the “Mummy guilt”  hit me hard — especially since his last big celebration was his first birthday.

So I decided to give him something a little bit more than a movie and decided to organize a Lego Movie Party  for him instead.

Party Starters and Style City  my constant go-to party suppliers, helped me style the party by incorporating a lot of the movie’s construction-themed elements. We used a lot of sand, cranes, trucks, bulldozers and the like.

Smart Play  provided the sandboxes and the table filled with lego blocks for kids to play with.

We also had a Rainbow Loom Band activity before the games started. I was surprised to see that the boys enjoyed this as much as the girls did!

The Lego birthday cake was made by Michelle Teves of Coco Cakes.  She has baked almost all my children’s birthday cakes. I love her style and creativity — not to mention that her cakes are as delicious as they are pretty!

Coco Cakes also made these cupcakes which had The Lego Movie characters for its toppers.

And she made these cute Lego-colored Jell-o cups too!

Since my boy is a chocoholic (yes like Mummy, like son), I decided to order another birthday cake for him — but this time with his favorite chocolates on and around it : Kit Kat, Maltesers and M&M’s… And do you know what’s underneath all that candy? There’s one big chocolate chip cookie below it!  This awesome Cookie Cake was made by Cookie Bar

Cookie Bar also made these yummy cookie cups topped with chocolate chips, peanut butter, marshmallows and dark chocolate.

And personalized donuts that spelled my boy’s name, made by Cello’s Doughnuts.

One of my favorite pastry chefs, Chef Miko Aspiras  (formerly of Raffles Fairmont Hotel  and now of Scout’s Honor Cookies), also made Valrhona Chocolate Swirls  in mini cones.

I also bought miniature chocolate bars to put inside the toy trucks that were scattered on the kids’ tables and dessert bar. The guests were allowed to take these toys and chocolates home!

Our party’s host, Marcus, entertained everyone with his witty antics, silly games and fun magic show!

And who says only kids can have fun at a children’s party? The parents willingly joined in the games as well!

Batman, Lego Stormer and Wonder Woman (who according to my son had very small parts in The Lego Movie) came in as his surprise guests! 🙂

The characters danced to the theme song of the movie : “Everything is Awesome”.  This delighted the kids very much! (Just imagine Batman  and the Lego Stormer  in their heavy costumes dancing! 🙂 )

Bono Gelato’s The Spoiled Mummy Sundae was of course served at the party!

(Read about this special gelato here.)

And this dessert was the biggest hit that day!

Made of fresh strawberry gelato covered in rich Belgian chocolate magic shell and then topped with homemade candy sprinkles…what’s there not to love about my favorite sundae? 🙂
