You Absolutely Need to Check Out This Magic Party Theme

Have a little magician in your household? Then you need to check out this party theme for their next birthday! We've got a full guide here for you on creating the best magic party possible, so let's not waste any time and get right into it.

Magic Party Theme – Den of Magic

Use a black top hat as the centerpiece. Turn it upside down, and have a stuffed rabbit peaking out of the top. Multi-colored scarves, tied together, can cascade out of the side to add a splash of color. Use playing cards, taped together to decorate the walls and tables. You can also make your own using poster board and markers. Cut starburst shapes out of dark colored poster board, and write magic words on them metallic markers. Use words like “hocus-pocus”, “shazam”, “presto-change-o”, and, “abracadabra”.

Magic Party Theme – Magical Morsels

Let your guests make a magic potion they can drink! The day before the party, freeze grape or cranberry juice in ice cube trays. At the party, serve clear soda or seltzer. Let the guests add the ice cubes to “magically” change the color of their drink. Serve magic wands. Dip pretzel rods in melted chocolate. Let the chocolate harden; then, using white icing, ice the very tip of the pretzel, to make perfect wands. Make and serve rabbit in the hat cupcakes. Bake a batch of cupcakes, and let them cool. Once they're cool, take them out of the paper wrappers, and frost them with chocolate frosting. Use white icing to make a band just below the top of each one, to make them look like upside down top hats. Make or buy rabbit shaped sugar cookies. Frost them with white icing and use pink gel frosting to make the noses and inside of the ears. When the icing dries, put one rabbit in each top hat, and serve.

Magic Party Theme – The Magician is Here!

What magic party is complete without activities? The most obvious activity choice here is to hire a magician to perform at your party. There are many different options out there; look for one that is particularly geared toward kids of your child's age. Make sure you do your research to ensure you're getting the most bang for your buck!

If you don't want to hire a magician or can't afford one, no worries! Another great activity idea is a showing of the first “Harry Potter” movie. Kids of all ages adore this series, so it's a perfect way to keep your child and their guests entertained. You can also have a craft activity where guests make their very own wands. Offer lots of different craft supplies for them to make their magical dreams a reality.

Play a game where each guest has to come up with their own spell. They have to give it a name and come up with a use for it. At the end, all of the guests can pick their favorite. This is a great way to stir each child's imagination and competitiveness in a healthy and fun way.

Finally, if your budget allows, you can take the party out of the home and to a magic show! Of course, make sure you find a magic show that's appropriate for children. Keep in mind that you'll have to cover the cost for each child, and you'll have to arrange for some sort of transport. If you decide to go with this type of party, we advise keeping the guest list to two or three of your child's closest friends.
