Here are some tips on how to throw a magic-themed birthday party for your child.
Make or purchase invitations shaped like any of a magician’s famous tools like a black top hat, wands, playing cards, rabbits or capes. You can also be creative with a DIY black top hat with a rabbit insert where the party details are printed.
If the guests are old enough they can make their own edible magic wand. You just have to provide pretzel rods, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Instruct them to dip the pretzel rods in dark chocolate. After the chocolate hardens, let them dip both ends of the rod in white chocolate. A healthy alternative to this is threading fruits like strawberries, grapes, watermelon and grapes along a kabob stick. To finish the magic wand top it off with a star-shaped cookie.
If the guests are too young to make their own magic wand, you can make them ahead of time yourself.
Wow your child with a three-dimensional top hat shaped birthday cake. Just bake enough layers of chocolate cake to form a top hat. Hollow out the inside and put a rabbit inside made from a vanilla cake.
For your party drinks, you can make a magic concoction by scooping some strawberry sherbet into a fruit punch then sprinkle it with edible glitters. This swirly magic potion will surely amaze the guests once you serve it with a lot of ice.
An actual magician who’ll do a magic show for your kids party entertainment will truly make the party a blast. If you’re on a tight budget you can ask someone to dress up as a magician and learn some tricks to impress the guests.
This can be a good take home gift for the guests. You can provide swaths of fabric which the guests can decorate with glitter glue, foam letters or fabric markers. They’ll have fun creating them and wearing them all throughout the party.
A red curtain hung on the doorway will give each guest a spectacular entrance. Use garlands or tablecloths in red and gold and create unique centerpieces like top hats and wands. You can also dim the light for a mysterious feel. Don’t forget to dress-up your child in a magician’s costume to put emphasis on the theme.
A top hat filled with goodies is a nice party favor for the guests. Include some bubbles, glitter glue, candies and some magic accessories in the bag.
