If you don't know what Minecraft is then..well...what can I say. Actually your life is probably fine and dandy and if you haven't a clue then I salute you! For those of us who are in the know, then I hope this post gives you a few ideas if you fancy staging one for yourself.
I have to say whilst there are loads of images for Minecraft cakes there isn't a huge stash of party supplies for Minecraft, however, there are some fabulous blogs out there giving great links to various Minecraft ideas. In particular, I like this one by MineMum where I was directed to free Minecraft invites that I could print off and other great ideas.

For the Minecraft decorations, my daughter had made little signs like "gold" and "sticks" which we laminated and placed by the food. I ordered a green grass effect table cloth, creepy balloons, gold and silver paper plates/cups (as per daughter's instructions). Luckily a friend had off loaded her Minecraft paper boxes when she moved house which was perfect for putting on the table for decorations. We also used those boxes in pass the parcel with a chocolate inside.

|Of course we had to have 'lava'|
Now I'm not one for staging parties and what not but even I was impressed with myself! We used a treasure chest pinata and took off the pirate sign.
