Earlier this year, LEGO celebrated the 60th anniversary of their bricks with a handful of play sets, which we shared to go along with a LEGO Challenge Game. 2018 also marks 40th anniversary of the LEGO Minifigure! To celebrate the occasion, 16 new LEGO Minifigures were released in mystery bags on April 1. We decided to celebrate the occasion here at home by throwing a LEGO Minifigure Party with friends!

While "Pinterest-perfect" parties are the goal most of us strive to achieve, our budgets don't always agree with our party plans. I know I'm not the only one in this predicament, so I wanted to share some simple tips, FREE printables, and more about how we were able to throw an awesome party on a budget should you feel inspired to have your own LEGO Minifigure Party!

Officially called the Party Series, these new minifigures are dressed up in wild costumes! Each LEGO series set usually includes 16 minifigures, but this series is extra special because it includes the police officer minifigure that was the first ever created in 1978! You can find the LEGO Minifigures packaged in mystery bags available online or in stores for $3.99 each.

I started with my personal favorite, party favors, to begin my party prep. I created some free printable party favor bag toppers to attach to the top of the favor bags. Print out the toppers on regular copy paper, cut them out with a paper trimmer, and fold the toppers in half.

In each treat bag I added in one LEGO Minifigure mystery bag, and some adorable brick candy that your guests can build AND eat! After the bag has been filled, close the top of the bag and place the topper over the bag. Staple or tape the topper in place.

For a little more LEGO fun, I found these awesome mini popcorn boxes! The favor bags fit perfectly inside, and the box can hold any other goodies that your guests want to take home with them. I especially love how the favors looked on the party table and helped tie in the LEGO theme!

I embellished some chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with these fun Free Printable LEGO Cupcake Toppers adorned with LEGO minifigure heads. I cut them out easily with a 2" circle punch.

To place the toppers on the cupcakes with ease, I cut a paper straw into 1/4 and attached the pieces to the back of the cupcake toppers with tape. Stick the straw into the cupcakes, and just like that you've got LEGO-themed cupcakes!

For additional table decoration, we rounded up some of our favorite LEGO minifigures. Here in front of the decadent chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, we've got a Roman Gladiator, a Retro Spaceman, a Highwayman, and (my personal favorite) a Dance Instructor from Series 17!

My daughter got out her LEGO bricks and built this awesome napkin and utensil holder to put on our party table. It's VERY easy to build, and kids will be so proud to have one of their creations on display for all the guests to see!

My daughter built this little "cup" to hold markers so that the guests could find them easily. It's built the same way as the utensil holder, but smaller and taller! You could also keep this after the party to hold all of your pens and pencils on a desk!
