Follow the yellow brick road to fun with great Wizard of Oz party supplies and decorations from Shindigz. No matter which version of this classic work you prefer – the Judy Garland original movie or one of the many remakes – the story resonates through the generations. That’s why party-goers of all ages always are eager to go off the see the wizard. For bigger venues or events, start with a Wizard of Oz party theme kit that saves you time and money. These collections include all the major pieces you need to create a grand entrance, and they’re sold at a discount compared to the cost of buying the elements separately. Add expanses of gossamer in the background – in a rainbow of colors, of course – and your major work is finished.
For smaller venues, focus on details. A yellow brick road is essential. Comb thrift stores for pumps that you can transform into ruby red slippers with spray paint or dye. Fill them with flowers and you’ve created an inexpensive, yet memorable centerpiece. Use blue gingham table clothes or coverings to continue the theme. A cheap picnic basket such as the one Dorothy carried is another fantastic centerpiece idea. Fill it with personalized favors such as a custom rainbow swirl lollipop and let guests help themselves. A Land of Oz look for room decor also is easy to create. Emerald-colored balloons, streamers, lanterns and table coverings are a great, inexpensive look. Playing off “Over the Rainbow” with brilliant bursts of color throughout the room is another fabulous way to execute a Wizard of Oz theme.
