Magic Themed Birthday Party

Mrs. Party Planner's Magic Themed Birthday Party

As a young child, I attended a friend's birthday party where a magician performed. I remember loving the performance and have since wanted to have a Magic Themed Birthday Party for my own children. So you can imagine my excitement when I suggested this to my youngest a year ago and they enthusiastically said they would love to have a Magic Themed Party! Keep reading for ideas and tips to throw your own party!

While my mom was browsing Party City she found the most adorable magic party invites on clearance for only fifty cents a pack! Y'all, fifty cents for ten super cute paper invites is a steal. She called me from the store and I told her to grab the last two packs.

Evites are always easy and convenient these days but there is something special about receiving a paper invite too. Or even an invite in a bottle like I did for my girls' Under the Sea Mermaid Party

Decorating and party styling are always my favorite when it comes to party planning. I love getting creative and using what I already have in my party supply inventory to create a fun backdrop. The backdrop material and gold champagne buckets were all recycled from a 50th Birthday Party I planned a couple weeks back. The red sequin panels I found here on Amazon. And the black shiny material was purchased at Joann Fabrics. The star garlands I also had from a prior party and were also purchased on Amazon

Balloon garlands really add a punch to your party and can easily be done yourself with the help of Balloon Arch Decorating Strips found at Party City. Tip: when creating your own balloon garland or arch, add balloons of different sizes or shapes. You can also add some fake floral leaves or flowers. As fun as balloons are for parties, I wish they were recyclable. Balloons and the string can really harm wildlife so the best way to dispose of balloons is to deflate and cut up the balloons and string into small pieces and seal the pieces in a bag. 

Each party guest received a magician top hat and magic wand from Oriental Trading. I was pleasantly surprised with the good quality of hat and wand. In addition, each guest left with two magic tricks they can perform for their families. I also found the magic tricks that came in a variety pack at Oriental Trading.

I made the Happy Birthday banner myself with a little help from my Cricut Explore Air 2.

 A little magic trick I had up my sleeve was an idea I found from the PetitChef. A few days prior I put two drops of food coloring into the solo cups. The day of the party I added a couple ice cubes and poured water from a clear glass pitcher into the cups. The party guests squealed with delight in discovering their clear water had magically turned into blue, green, yellow, or red water!

The cupcakes were ordered from Market Street, a local grocer, and turned out great! Judging from how quickly they disappeared, I would guess they tasted great too!

And no Magic Themed Birthday Party is complete without an actual magician! Magician Rick Morrill did a fantastic job of wowing the audience. He kept nineteen kids and a few parents entertained for about an hour.

Happy Birthday sweet girls!! Momma loves you and had so much fun planning this party for you!!
