Now it’s time to get creative and decorative! Get all hands on deck and get the kids to help create the birthday fun together. With LEGO® birthdays you can customize the décor any way you like from centerpieces to name tags – even LEGO confetti! Stick to the theme or freestyle to make custom decorative builds that will make any birthday table bricktacular. Or make festive functional builds for holding flowers, cutlery or straws. Here are three ideas for table decorations, but as they say … the only limit is your imagination!

Table 1: Va-va-vroom!

For all the gearheads, daredevils and those who are into some fast-paced action, there are plenty of possibilities within the LEGO® vehicles universe. You can take any idea and run with it (or, rather, drive with it).

Table 2: Full of personality, full of color, full of fun!

It’s their birthday… so it makes sense to pay tribute to the special birthday person. Have fun creating colorful name centerpieces, and awesome accessories like napkin holders and little mini presents. Everything within their favorite color scheme, of course.

Table 3: Collaboration for the nation

An open centerpiece such as this one provides a great outlet for kids who may-or-may-not-be looking for something to do with their cake-induced sugar rush. Building up this centerpiece with spare LEGO bricks is a perfect way to keep kids creative, occupied… and (relatively) still!
