As you know from my previous post, we celebrated Benjamin’s 7th birthday this past weekend at Kefi in Buckhead. Benjamin had the best time with his friends. He said he “loved, loved, loved, loved, loved it”! Since Kefi was hosting, we let them provide all the usual things they do in their birthday party package, including all the paper goods. I just planned to set up the cake table and favors area to bring in a bit more of the Minecraft theme Benjamin wanted. Here is a better look at the Minecraft birthday party favors, decor, and cake!

I purchased this giant green “7” balloon online and then took it to Publix to be filled, along with 3 black and 3 green balloons. They have the number balloons in silver and gold, but the green was perfect for the Minecraft theme. We set these balloons right up to the cake table.
We have ordered custom cookies from Yummy Delicious Cookies by Deb for all of Benjamin’s birthday parties and various other events. If you live in Atlanta, (or even if you don’t — she ships!) I could not more highly recommend these custom cookies! Deb is an absolute artist. She’s created some of the most amazing sugar cookies for us, and they’re incredibly tasty too! Here is a peek at the cookies Deb created for Benjamin’s other birthday parties: Benjamin’s Vintage Storybook First Birthday, Oh Twodles! Benjamin’s Mickey Mouse 2nd Birthday, Benjamin’s Peppa Pig 3rd Birthday, and his Peter Pan 4th Birthday Party.
I had been struggling to come up with the perfect Minecraft party favor, when we we received the platter of cookies I purchased. Deb had included the perfect amount of smaller sized cookies for the kids who had RSVP’d! I decided to include one in each favor box! I printed these TNT labels and wrapped them around Red Vines that I had cut into thirds. I included several gold coins, which Benjamin instructed me were just “gold” as coins aren’t a part of the game. 😉 They turned out so cute and were a huge hit! The larger cookies, I put on a smaller platter and provided glassine bags for any of the adults who wanted to take one.

This year I commissioned a custom Minecraft Cake from Cakes by Monique. It was a referral from a friend whose parties I’ve photographed and attended with my family in the past… so I was familiar. Benjamin was so happy with the cake that he melted to the floor when he saw it. Haha! I had shared a few cake ideas I liked, but for the most part she came up with the cake on her own. The one major thing that Benjamin wanted was for Minecraft Steve to be on top of the cake with his pickaxe raised up. We found this one on Amazon, and it was perfect! As a last minute addition to the Minecraft birthday party decor, I came across these paper grass mats. I am so happy I bought them! I think they really pulled the entire look together. They are so easy to use and made for a great backdrop to the Minecraft birthday cake and favors.
