Minecraft Birthday Party in Cape Town

My son recently turned six and was eager to choose his new party theme, Minecraft. Now in South Africa, Minecraft (an internet computer game) isn’t really popular and it’s impossible to get party décor anywhere here in Cape Town, so it has really been a challenge to put it together nicely. I was up for the challenge and love that Matthew believes anything is possible. Although we didn’t have a party, we did invite family over; had cake, snacks and thankfully, the sun was out, so we had a fire too.

With just Décor and Cake, we just had to add the birthday boy to turn my home into a minecraft adventure.

      The pink swords, pickaxes and creepers I made with the perler beads were popular with the girls. 🙂

    My son is a huge Minecraft fan too – although he’s never asked me for a Minecraft party yet!
