Oh my! I am still worn out from my son’s 6th birthday party last Friday night. The party was the easy part…the planning and prep will kill a person! This is what I learned about myself…I do not like baking. Decorating cookies and cupcakes are my worse nightmare…remind me to hire that out next time. But the party was a huge success and it looked amazing thanks to the printable ninja set from Debbie from Wants and Wishes Design. I found her party online and knew it would be the perfect copying exactly jumping off point for Isaac’s 6th Lego Ninjago birthday party.
And the star of the show helped make it pretty great too…
Using images I found on the internet I created this invitation. Not bad for someone who knows nothing about design.

The ninja stars were part of the printable package from Wants and Wishes Designs. I just piped on red Wilton candy melts onto wax paper with the ninja outline underneath to use as a pattern. The little lego figures were from the above linked mold with different colors of Wilton candy melts as well. Tip: Use the Wilton Squeeze Bottle to fill the mold and pipe the stars.
As a take away from the party (in addition to their piñata candy) each child received five mini chocolate legos.
I used the leftover Wilton candy melts and melted them onto Mike Sells popcorn puffs to make some “Firecracker Crunch.”
The chocolate covered pretzel nunchucks were made dipping pretzel rods into chocolate bark and sticking a Twizzler Pull & Peel into the wet chocolate on the top. Then I used two strands of the Twizzlers to tie a printable tag around them.
Then I just used the rest of the printables to add pizzazz to the table.
And of course we can’t have a birthday party in the Farrant household without a themed homemade paper bag pinata.
Isaac had a blast and kept saying all weekend “I wish we could do my party all over again.”
And here is Kayla and Isaac practicing their new Lego Ninjago moves.
