This party table is amazing! It features grass mat placemats, grass tablecover, custom made Creeper plates and metal pails for the party snacks. To make the Creeper birthday plates, simply take solid green plates and add the face using black construction paper. Then place a clear plastic plate on top.

Party Decorations and Accessories - Table Décor~ Party Plates ~ DIY Party Decorations ~ Grass Blocks ~ Coasters
The green grass tissue mat featured below would look great on a "dirt" brown table cover. The styrofoam block can be painted brown and topped with the grass mat to form grass block party decorations. The colroful foam blocks would be perfect for your party decorations and/or party favors. You could paint each block to resemble the blocks found in Minecraft World and scatter them on the party table or include in the favor bags. Another idea would be to hide the blocks and use them for a fun scavenger hunt party game. The last items featured are clear plastic plates which can be used to make the Creeper plates pictured above and metal buckets.
Each order comes with 102 soft 1" foam blocks in assorted colors.
The Creeper party plates pictured above are made from round clear plates. Another great idea would be to use square clear plates for your Creepers since that is the shape of their heads. Simply embellish the plates with green cardstock and black cardstock for the face.
Party Decorations - Castle Inspired Items ~ Posters
Use these castle items to decorate the party room.
Wrapping Paper - Diamond Ore and Cobblestone
This wrapping paper can be used to wrap the birthday child's presents or to wrap the party favors.
Another great use for this paper would be to cover the cake or cupcake board. Simply wrap the board with the paper and attach with tape on the bottom. Then place your decorated cake or cupcakes on the board. I have done this in the past for my kid's parties and the end result looks great! You can use a rectangular cake board such as the one featured below. These cake boards can usually be purchased at your local craft store.
You can also purchase wrapping paper in the classic cobblestone design.
Diamond Ore - Great for your party decorations, party games and party favors
Diamond ore is one of the most sought after and valuable blocks in Minecraft World. You can scatter these blue diamonds on the party & cake table, include some in your party favor bags and use them in your party games.

You could also decorate plain colored bags with the stickers pictured here.
Another idea would be use Stone Castle Favor Boxes.These gable style favor boxes coordinate nicely with the Minecraft Castle and Cobblestone look of the Minecraft world.
Gold is a hot item to find in Minecraft world. These gold bar favor boxes would be perfect for your celebration. Simply fill the gold bars with candy and attach a thank you card.
Separate these magnets and place a few in each of the party favor bags.
Party Candy - Coal would make a unique party favor.
*Party Note: This 5lbs of coal could also be used for a fun party game. Count the pieces of coal and then place it in a clear jar. Add a Minecraft coal label. The party guests have to guess how many pieces of coal is in the jar. The person closest without going over wins.

Make your own pinata using a cardboard box
These are one of the simpler DIY pinatas to make. This is because the pinatas created are square and/or rectanglular shaped.
You could make a Creeper pinata as pictured here, a grass block pinata or even a TNT pinata. All of these pinata designs require an easy to make square or rectangle.
How to make a cardboard box pinata:
1. Find a cardboard box the size you would like for your pinata. It is better to find a box with thinner sides so it will not be too difficult to break. If you are having very young kids, you may want to slice a few holes in the box before decorating it. This will make breaking it open a bit easier.
2. Fill the box with candies and small toys.
3. Punch two holes on the sides of the unopened side of the box about 2" down from the top . (the opened side goes on the bottom so the candy will fall out).
4. Pass a piece of heavy duty string through the holes to create you pinata hanger.
5. Cover the box with a few layers of paper mache.
6. Decorate your pinata with paint, creper paper or images printed from the Internet.
