Want to give someone special a truly unique celebration? Of course. And if you’re looking into LEGO party supplies, you have made an awesome choice. With a wide range of themes and directions to take, LEGO can be a fun match for many occasions, whether it be for a TTRPG get-together, a birthday, or some other special commemoration.
It just depends on your taste and audience, otherwise go all out and make an impact! But at the same time, if you’re going to go through the trouble of creating a LEGO-themed party, you may also want simple and multipurpose options… so that when the party is over, all that work can live to see another day, in another way. If that sounds up your alley, let’s take a look at buying LEGO party supplies online, as well as some cheap DIY solutions.
Get LEGO Party Supplies On Budget
First thing’s first. This may seem obvious, but you may be surprised how easily a “hole” appears in your wallet when shopping for a LEGO-themed party, or parties in general.
Instead of failing to budget for a party and instead of spending more than you anticipated on additional flourishes and impulse additions – plan for it.
Set a core limit to how much you “need” to spend. Then, once you have that number range established, intentionally add another chunk of money to cover any extra impulse buys you may come across.
For example, if you budget a core $150 for supplies and décor, add another $50 bucks to cover anything else that comes up. A total of $200 budgeted, with specific amounts allocated. Adjust as desired!
Find and Buy Quality LEGO Party Supplies
So you want to do this? Great!
Besides using things you already have on hand, the best deals can often be found with a little digging on Etsy, eBay, or Amazon.
FireStar Toys and Build Better Bricks are especially great for finding unique and quirky items that simply can’t be found in local retail outlets. You can find some of the best prices for one-off custom party, gift, and celebration accessories via fan merchants. And if you’re a gamer looking to start a DnD (Dungeons and Dragons)-esque party – but with LEGO! – opportunities abound to make it a reality.
Check out my post about some of the best custom LEGO vendors and artists.
The products on eBay generally have a greater tendency to be specifically-themed supplies (Batman or other superhero, LEGO City, LEGO Movie, etc.).
But if you take my advice here and search around a bit, you’re bound to find something that fits the bill, whether you are interested in LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Superhero, or something more general LEGO-themed for older fans.
If you will be also shopping for LEGO sets and kits online, be sure to head over here for more important pointers.
Fun Ideas and Awesome Party Supplies to Keep in Mind
You likely already have an idea about what you need to complete the look of your celebration. However, it can be helpful to more efficiently conduct your search by considering categories of décor. You may also happen to identify something that you overlooked!
Create a list separated into sections of supplies including cards and invitations, tableware, decoration, favors and accessories…
…And of course, LEGO bricks. Only you know best how to please your LEGO-loving party-goers… In and of themselves, LEGO bricks are appealing to kids and adults alike. But with the right application, LEGO-themed décor could even win over those who are not as maniacal!
Besides being incorporated into decoration, LEGO elements could be an easy and fun way to include both as a party activity and memento – for adult gatherings as well as for kids.

Collect Ideas and Inspiration for Future Use In a LEGO Themed Party
If you can’t quite find “that something” LEGO which perfectly matches an interest, consider DIY!
This can be particularly crafty to do for the eclectic birthday, wedding, or holiday celebration. Pick up some arts & crafts supplies and create something truly one-of-a-kind.
Of course it can be helpful to simply browse idea-centric platforms like Pinterest (it doesn’t even have to be a LEGO-related search – you may be surprised at what you can be inspired by. Even tangentially related ideas can be adapted to your most fantastic LEGO pipe-dream).

For your convenience, some pretty basic ideas for younger party-goers are presented below. Adults, feel free to scale up and adapt to fit the needs of your occasion.
Cardboard building blocks (see product list in conclusion) are an example of decorative DIY. You could pick up several cardboard blocks (or make your own!), cover them in single-color gift wrap, then affix matching-color candy cups upside down onto their surface, to create your own giant “LEGO bricks”.
Have an empty LEGO bucket sitting around? Turn it into a snack or party favor bowl.
Do you have anything going into the recycling bin that you could turn into an oversized LEGO element? Take a look and have some fun seeing what you can come up with. If you have juice boxes, for example, wrap them in gift wrap and turn them into oversized “LEGO bricks”. Build your table settings – literally – from LEGO pieces.
Repurpose mason jars by painting them to appear as LEGO minifigure heads; use them for snacks or other party games. You could even turn one into a DIY mason jar aquarium – add LEGO figures and small scenes inside, and present these miniature biomes to guests as favors.
LEGO Classic kits and Minifigure Blind Bags are also a great grab bag mix of parts and can serve as starter items.
What About Party Activities for a LEGO Fan?
Check the official LEGO website! For juniors, free printable materials and build challenges are available that can be used for party games and activities.
Or, imagine if you set up the scenario for a LEGO boxcar race! Get or make helmets to put everyone in the vibe, create a raceway, add some LEGO Creator 3-in-1 cars (see product list in conclusion), and you’re off to some interactive racing fun.
Or, organize and play a good old-fashioned relay game, LEGO style. Clear space, get some spoons and an egg-sized LEGO creation, and let the antics begin!
Or, cut out an oversized LEGO minifigure from cardstock, and play pin the head (or whatever else) on the LEGO figure.
You can mix, match, and build to come up with the most raucous party schedule tailored to entertain your crew. How bold will you go? How cheesy will you get? How subtle will you execute? All up to you, party-minded readers.
