Hocus Pocus MAGIC PARTY peek-a-boo!

Our youngest son, Titus, just turned 7! To celebrate, I am hosting a MAGIC 7 party. Here is a sneak peek from some of the vendors helping with his party! His adorable invitations were designed by Brandy of Pink Pickle Studios. Brandy is so quick to create and she easily captured my ideas and transformed them into party printables. Pink Pickle Studios designs every paper printable you can image to make a party SPECIAL. I will show more of her magic in the upcoming party posts.

The boys dressed up as magicians with their black top hats, white gloves, and magic wands to deliver these invitations. They tucked magic tricks into their pockets and performed a lil magic at each doorstep.

We have some magic prepared for our party guests...

Right now, my party vision for the decor is still in boxes. I have a few short days before the party to create a magical place for sweet little kids to experience some wonder and imagination.
I must be one of the few people to get crazily excited to open a box like this from the mailman! I am stuck on products from Garnish and want to use them for every single party I style. Garnish offers clean, fresh, and simple products. The ideas on how to use their treasures are literally endless. I used a lot of Garnish products for the LEGO party I previously hosted. Check back in a few day to see how these little goods get put to use!

And I am MOST excited about these handmade treasures from my all time favorite online spot: etsy. Taffie Wishes on etsy was absolutely AMAZING to work with! She creates some real magic with her handmade party decor. My vision for Titus' party is a simple, at home, handmade event. Taffie Wishes did a perfect job creating that for me. The banner, cupcake toppers, and garland are made of playful, soft felt. Every stitch makes me smile.

I also wanted the party colors to be a neutral base of white and light tan with accents of black and red to give a classy effect.

Angela, of Taffie Wishes is incredible to work with. Her response time is instant and she patiently worked with me every step of the way, designing 100% customized party decor.

Some party magic on the way....

I have lots of happy anticipation as we plan to turn this party into a lil MAGIC SHOW. I can't wait to share with you all the magic party details after the party . . . so check back lovers. :)

Fun stuff: The government makes me say that this is a sponsored post that I am being compensated for.

Lisa- What a wonderful idea. I love it. My youngest son was trained as an amateur magician and had a magic store in Reno and in Wisconsin at one time. I LOVE magic...and so do kids! GREAT idea for a party. How about S'mores in the microwave where the magic happens when the marshmallow puffs up to giagantic size? Or...maybe not such a good idea-with sticky marshmallows and kids?!;>) Hugs- Diana

Hi there. I've been trying to post a comment on your creative photo signs and just haven't been able to make it work for some reason. But I didn't want to miss the opportunity to thank you for being a part of Seasonal Sundays and tell you how much I loved your post. You should print this post out and tuck it away for a few years. I'm sure each and every one of you will enjoy revisiting it.

One question, how did you do this? Do they hold blank signs and then you add the words? What program?

Looks so fun!

Aren't kids' parties such a blast to plan?


Kelli W said...

That sounds like such a fun party theme! We considered something like that for my oldest but I think he has decided on Rock n Roll instead:)

I can't wait to see the whole party! I love Garnish products too ... just used their hot dog "boats" and wooden spoons at our camping party.
