1) Use an 8x10 piece of red, blue, yellow or green paper. You can alternate colors or use all one color. Card stock paper works best.

3) Below the picture, invite the guest to your party. Our invitation says

“Come join the fun, Elijah is turning one!”. You can create your own wording if you would like for the first birthday parties.

4) Centered below that line should be the “where and when”. It is best to not only include the location but the exact address as well. If the place is tricky to find, don’t hesitate to make small maps to slip in the card. Make sure to state the date and the day of the week, such as: Saturday, November 22. The time of day will go beneath.

If you would like to have a good idea how many guests may show, you can add RSVP at the very bottom of the page.

5) Print the invitation.

6) Once it has been printed,fold it top to bottom with the printed side of the paper facing you. The blank side should be on the outside and the printed on the inside.

7) Cut circles out of the remaining paper and, using the same color as the paper, glue to the front of the blank side to look like a Lego brick or you can use double-sided padded adhesive dots for a 3-D effect. The fold should be at the top so it opens from the side that is decorated like a Lego.

8) Now you are ready to address and mail. Don’t forget the final touch- stickers! Lego stickers can be purchased from the Other birthday stickers are fine as well.

Congratulations on successfully completing the first step to your great first birthday party in LEGO®!

LEGOVille Basic Party Pack

Decorations at your first birthday party are like icing on the cake! Decorate in bright “LEGO®” colors: blue, yellow, red, and green. Balloons are colorful and fun. Try tying a 12” curly ribbon string to each one using a contrasting color. LEGO Ville Mylar Balloon add a great element.

You do not have to buy anything however, but the easiest way to get started is with a LEGOVille Basic Party Pack. You can add your own customized posters too. Just use bright colored poster boards to write “Happy Birthday” messages or whatever else you would like. Photos of the birthday boy or girl can be pasted on as well.

Crate paper streamers are easy to put up and add lots of color. Use all four colors or pick one. If you want to go all out, dangle large LEGO blocks from the ceiling using strong thread or dental floss.

Pinatas are festive to look at and fun to bust into later on in the party.

Colorful tablecloths, napkins, paper cup and paper plates are another great way to add color and cheer to first birthday parties. Use solid bright colors or LEGO printed ones from LEGO Ville Napkins. Table displays are an excellent way to bring your theme to life. For a LEGO refreshment table, use a solid plastic tablecloth of red, blue, yellow or green. Arrange your cake and snacks on the table.

For a great centerpiece, spell out your child’s name with LEGO®. Other LEGO creations can be displayed as well.

Some LEGO toys come in plastic containers shaped like a LEGO®. These are great to empty and fill with punch, juice or kool-aid. A bright colored ladle is perfect for serving into cups.

First birthday parties are the time to go all out on decorations!

LEGO party treats can be bagged, sacked or packaged. Choose bright colors like red, green, blue or yellow or use fill-your-own LEGO themed party boxes, available at LEGO Ville Empty Favor Boxes. Small colorful buckets or sand pails make great containers too.

First Birthday Parties LEGO goody bags should be custom built for little ones. Make sure all items are safe from choking hazards and are non-toxic. Snacks should be age appropriate as well.

A handful of colorful large LEGO bricks are great for tiny tot favors. Plastic balls, non-toxic bubbles, books, and organic play dough are great as well. LEGO fruit snack packs and a small container of boxed juice make tasty additions for this first birthday party.

You can also make small bags of toddler treats using items from the baby and toddler grocery aisle. Yogurt bites, puffs and junior cookies are excellent selections.

Preschooler favor bags still require consideration for product toxicity and choking hazards but the selection is a bit wider. Age appropriate small packages of LEGOS are sure to bring hours of fun or even a small builder set such as a car or firetruck. Consider sidewalk chalk, a small container of crayons and colorful clay.

These things are perfect for the first birthday parties.
