Moms Night In Fortune Telling Party – Entertainment:
I want to start by sharing some Wikipedia definitions on these beliefs and practices.
- Numerology is any study of the purported divine, mystical or other special relationship between a count or measurement and life. It is the study of the symbolism of numbers. It is used to determine a person’s personality, strengths and talents, obstacles, inner needs, emotional reactions and ways of dealing with others.
- Fortune-telling is the practice of predicting information about a person’s life.
- Tarot reading revolves around the belief that the cards can be used to gain insight into the past, current and possible future situations of the subject.
- Astrology consists of a number of belief systems which hold that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes that claim to predict aspects of an individual’s personality or life history based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other planetary objects at the time of their birth.

Decor for this party could be as simple as a decorative glass ball (the crystal ball) as the centerpiece on the food table. Decorative & dark toned scarves could be used as table decor.
Moms Night In Fortune Telling Party – Dinner:
There are so many variations of pasta dishes which means creating a pasta buffet is an easy way to be sure everyone can find a combination they enjoy. For your pasta buffet, you could include items such as:
- Different types and colors of pasta
- Alfredo sauce
- Tomato sauce
- Spicy sausage
- Sautéed vegetables such as onion, green pepper and mushrooms
- Steamed vegetables such as broccoli, zucchini and peas
- Grated parmesan cheese
Don’t forget about the garlic toast. A pasta dish just isn’t complete without a buttery piece of garlic toast or bread sticks.
Moms Night In Fortune Telling Party – Dessert:
Using your own favorite cupcake recipe, bake enough mini cupcakes so that each guest can enjoy at least three. Have a buffet of toppings available such as:
- Butter cream frosting
- Cream cheese frosting
- Chocolate frosting
- Crushed cookies
- Crushed candy bars
Each guest can create a few different cupcake varieties to enjoy.
Moms Night In Fortune Telling Party – Favor Bags:
If you wanted to create favor bags for your guests, items like a note pad and pen would be practical as guests could use this to make note of the fortunes they hear for themselves. You could also make your own fortune cookies out of craft paper and insert fun fortunes for your guests. Here’s a link to a site with a free printable for making fortune cookies.
If someone could tell you what your future held, would you want to know?
