Abracadabra! Magic Birthday Party by Laura Aguirre | Plus FREE Printable Activities!
Abracadabra! It’s time for "Dylan the great" to perform his amazing magic tricks. He will make a fun magic party appear right before your eyes!
When I saw how cute the Shindigz Abracadabra party theme was, I knew this would be a great party for my little guy to host! He loves to dress up, and the idea of having him play the role of a pint-sized magician was just too cute to pass up.
I started off by creating a stage setting for my little magician’s magic act. I set up the red curtain arch and it instantly started to transform our stage area. I added some black metallic curtains behind it for contrast. I took styrofoam letters and spelled out MAGIC SHOW. I applied mod podge to each letter and sprinkled them with gold glitter. Once they were dry, I suspended them from the red curtain arch with fishing line. This gave the letters the illusion of floating in thin air!
I had an old trunk from a previous party and gave it a fresh coat of paint. I stenciled "Dylan the great" in yellow paint and presto-change-o! I transformed the trunk into a traveling magic show performance table.
Before the magician’s show started, we displayed his cape, top hat, magic wand, cups and ball trick, and a fun light box that announced his name in lights! I loved the idea of using checkered paper to create the look of a stage floor.
The party table was set up with our little magic-loving friends in mind. Each guest got a top hat with a personalized sticker, a magic wand, and even their own "magic kit". The color palette coordinated with the Abracadabra theme, and I even added some touches of gold. Party treats were served on Abracadabra dinner plates, and beverages were sipped from matching Abracadabra paper cups.
The magic kits were a crowd favorite, and so simple to put together! I took black gable boxes and added a personalized sticker. I attached bunny ears to the back of the box, to resemble ears coming out of a hat. I added white gloves, and funny glasses to each kit. The guests loved dressing up in time to watch Dylan the great’s magic act!
If you’re looking for a fun theme that will please guests of all ages, an Abracadabra themed party is sure to be a "magical" hit!
