A Minecraft Themed Birthday Dinner

Luke loves Minecraft more than anything, so to celebrate his fifth birthday, we came up with a dinner with a Minecraft theme.

His favorite food is pasta, so I tried to incorporate that into the meal. I got a lot of great ideas from Pinterest.

Our Minecraft Dinner Menu
  • Zombie Brains (Rotini Pasta)
  • Lava (Spaghetti Sauce)
  • Sticks (Breadsticks)
  • Carrots (Salad)
  • Diamonds and Gold (Hershey’s Kisses and Rolos)
  • Sandstone (Rice Krispie Treats)
  • Obsidian (Brownies)
  • TNT (Twizzlers)
  • Creeper Cakes (Cake with green frosting)
Everything was served on square plates in black and green, and we drank green Gatorade.

For gifts, I used some gem-print wrapping paper I got on clearance after Christmas. Then I put the gifts in a treasure chest that guests had signed at Luke’s first birthday party.

He was thrilled to get a Minecraft LEGO set.

He also got a Kindle Fire from Mimi – more ways to play Minecraft!


It was a fun little way to celebrate our boy’s big birthday.
