Magic Party

I’ve seen some fantastic Magic themed parties lately which has inspired this blog post theme! This is definitely a fun theme if your child loves magic, games and tricks.

I’ve based the colours in this blog post around black, red and blue. However silver or gold would also work in well for this party theme.

Incorporate items such as top hats, dice, rabbits, stars, wands and playing cards into your decorations/props/theming.

For more ideas make sure you view the Real Parties section at the end of this blog post as well as my Pinterest board for this theme .

The Life’s Little Celebrations children’s party directory also has lots of fantastic vendors to use when planning this theme for your next kid’s party so make sure you visit!

Fairy Theme

A Fairy theme is such a popular theme for girl’s  and although I had done a previous blog post on this theme I decided to re-work it to keep it up to date!

For this theme you could incorporate woodland/garden features or keep it pastel and pretty. You could incorporate glitter, tulle, ribbons or any other whimsical decorations! If going for a woodland feel there are lots of props you could use such as mushroom decorations, wooden cutlery, grass table mats etc.

Here is a selection of some items to help inspire you and help you source some items for this theme!

You can also view my Pinterest board for more inspiration for this theme, and make sure you visit the Children’s Party Directory to find more fantastic vendors when planning this party!
