Minecraft has swept into the hearts and devices around the world, and you're tasked with creating a Minecraft world in your own home for a party. But have no fear! Minecraft is a fantastic theme, with tons of opportunities to make your Minecraft party shine. With such a blocky style, it's easy to build your party area into a one of a kind world for your birthday gamer. Cheryl from Moms & Munchkins styled and photographed this amazing Minecraft party for us. Here are some extra resources she used to complete the look:

Invitations and Personalization

Personalize your party to show off the special day you are celebrating. Customize messages on invites, labels, activity mats, bag tags and more. Our Minecraft pattern has tons of options.

Show us how you decide to use them by sharing your party pictures with us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.


Minecraft is a world made of colored blocks so your decor will mostly contain square-shapes. In the game, there are many different worlds you can create and explore, so getting an idea of which worlds you'd like to include in your party will help you tackle the decor aspect much easier. Whether its snow, desert, water, grass, or sand, you'll find some great tips to throwing a one-of-a-kind Minecraft party in your home or outside.
  • You can coordinate solid bluegreen, and black tableware and decorations with Minecraft brand elements to pull the whole look together.
  • Make a Minecraft party backdrop by taking square shaped paper plates and sticking them to the wall with sticky tack or non-damaging tape.
  • Use our stone wall backdrop to set the scene.
  • Take or make cubed cardboard boxes and cover with duct tape, construction paper, or tissue paper grass. Poke two small holes in the top and hang them from the ceiling with fishing line.

Party Favors

Party favors are a part of the party fun, and with a Minecraft themed party, you've got tons of options to choose from. You can even make it a personalized gift, with either a themed name tag or another individual character. Carry your theme through your party favors to make it feel complete.

Party Games and Activities

While your party is in full swing, throw in some activities and games to keep the energy going. Keep the hands busy after meal time by having stations or times for different games.

DIY Crafts & Food

Minecraft is all about building the world, so why not include some building creativity during the party? Having the kids (and adults) create a make-and-take craft is an awesome way to keep them entertained and add one more keepsake to the pile of party favors.
  • Duct tape bracelets are a fun craft thats quick and easy!
  • To make your own Minecraft sword, use this handy printable let the kids decorate it to their hearts content! Additionally, you could put cardboard between the two pieces of paper to make it extra sturdy.
  • Pick up some inexpensive blank T-shirts and have the party attendees make their own Minecraft shirts use heat transfer vinyl or fabric paint.
  • With a little pre-planning, you can make some fantastic Minecraft creatures from simple items such as toilet paper rolls and small boxes.
