One of the coolest birthday parties out there is a Becoming a Magician theme. If your child loves magic, then this is a great party idea. Here you’ll find ideas for invitations, decor, food, desserts (my personal favorite part of a party!), activities and loot bags.
Becoming a Magician – Invitations:
The first (and really cute) birthday party invitations come in a unique squiggle shape, offer 11 lines of personalization and come with envelopes. The return address labels (sold separately) are a cute touch.
For those of you who are crafty, a fun idea would be to make a flat black paper magicians hat with a rabbit insert. The rabbit could be holding all of the party information.
Maybe you’d like to invite guests from bring along their own favorite magic trick to amaze the guests! 1. Little Magician – Squiggle Shaped Birthday Party Invitations

Becoming a Magician – Decor:
For a magician theme you’ll want to use a lot of reds and blacks. This can easily be incorporated through balloons, tablecloths and dinnerware.
A cute idea for a centerpiece is to use a magician’s black top hat flipped upside down and fill it with flowers or a stuffed bunny or even a small dove (check your local craft store) sitting in the rim.
A pinata can serve as fun decor as well as a game for the guests. 1. Rabbit in Hat Pinata

Becoming a Magician – Food:
For kids birthday parties, you always want to keep the food simple, easy to create and choose crowd favorites. Hot dogs, pizza or hamburgers are excellent choices.
Create your own magic wand snacks buy using large pretzel sticks & dipping them in chocolate. For the magic wand white tip, you could dip the end in white sprinkles, coconut or white chocolate.
Becoming a Magician – Dessert:
Try making a regular rectangular cake and then once cooled, cut into smaller rectangles. Cover each with white icing and then use red or black icing (or gel) to create playing cards.
Prefer cupcakes? Then try these cupcake wrappers to help tie in the theme. A cupcake option is to use black cupcake wrappers and icing the cupcakes black (the idea is to make it resemble a top hat) and top with bunny ears (marshmallow bunny peep ears would be good for this). 1.
