If you’ve ever stopped by our Petaluma location, chances are you met Sara. As assistant store manager, Sara oversees our sales team in Petaluma and takes care of a thousand other important tasks. She wears many hats and is crucial to our daily operations. Customers love her. We love her. But most importantly, her kids love her!
Sara has two lively sons who are full of personality and are the light of her life! So when we asked her to design the tables for this month’s showroom displays in Petaluma, she jumped at the chance to incorporate one of their favorite things into a super fun, kids-themed table. LEGOS!!
What a playful theme for your next child-friendly (or even the child-at-heart) party. Even if you aren’t throwing a full-fledge Lego party, keep reading for fun ideas on how to transform your dinner table into any kid’s dream.
I asked Sara to share the details about this awesome table…. take it away Sara:
My oldest son, Jasper Cash, was my inspiration for this table. My soon-to-be six-year-old engineer will sit for hours creating his vision of Star Wars battlegrounds or superhero stations. I knew he would love nothing more than a party table covered in legos!
Gender-neutral primary colors of blue, green, yellow and red were my color palette. I scoured the internet for some fun accents to make the table pop.
First things first: the Legos!!! If you’re local, you must check out The Brick Hutt in downtown Santa Rosa. You can purchase Legos by the pound and the price is unbeatable. You can even throw your next Lego birthday party here! They are located right next to Sift Cupcakes, where you can purchase Lego-themed cupcakes. Yum! If you’re not local, Amazon is a good place to find just the right Legos you need (we went with primary colors to keep a gender-neutral feel).
Centerpiece: I filled a large vase with Legos. I made sure to count the exact number of Legos used in order to offer a prize to the person who guesses closest. It was an easy way to add color and display more legos. This also provides a fun activity for everyone around the table!
Chargers: I found these on Amazon. My husband and I are excited to use these once the display is taken down, to build an outdoor Lego table for our boys.
Cookies: Having a Lego themed cookie really adds to the place settings. Check out The Green Apron on Etsy for special order sugar cookies. If you’re into making them yourself, of course Pinterest led us to a very helpful site for DIY Lego Cookies
Suckers: The suckers are another Etsy find. Candied Cakes specialize in custom lollipops. I chose the orange bricks (tangerine), aqua bricks (blueberry) and black Lego guys (blackberry).
Printables: I used the always fabulous Kayden Ashley Designs
The Encore Events items used on this table:
Grey table drape, lemon napkin in the center, royal blue napkins, square salad plates, kya flatware, sundae glasses for suckers (filled with lemon heads), our new small ramekins for lemon heads, our red children’s chairs and our white children’s chiavari chair and our newmilk glass which is perfect for kids parties.
THANK YOU SARA!! Great Job!
