My niece Zoe just turned 6. I can’t believe she is already 6! She is so grown up now and I just love watching her grow up. I missed a birthday party or two of hers when I was living in San Diego. Now I get to help out with all of the decorations and making her birthday extra special. She had big ideas for her birthday with a magic theme, magician(what is a magic party without a magician?!), and a bouncy castle. She wanted rabbits in hats with purple, pink, black and white colors. I love, love how the color combination turned out. Everything looked amazing and her magic birthday party was a blast. Plus, Zoe got to show off her amazing magic skills.

My niece is really into magic right now. She has her magic kit and does some really fun magic tricks. For her 6th birthday party she wanted to have a magic party. I thought that was such a fun theme, I love how original she is. I made a few easy decorations that I am going to show you how to make.
To make an easy magic wand all you need is paper and curling ribbon in the colors of your party, straws, glue, and scissors.
Fold paper over in a strip about the size of your finger nail. Keep folding until the paper is completely folded. Then cut the paper three strips together as seen in the picture below.
With St. Patrick’s Day coming up I was looking for rainbow projects. That reminded me of the rainbow birthday party I helped plan for my niece’s 1st birthday. She will be 2 in June, they all just grow up way too fast! I had a lot of fun planning that party. My sister wanted to do bright colors and I thought rainbows would be cute! Since the party was at an indoor play area we didn’t go over the top with decorations. Really when a kid turns 1 the party theme and decorations are more for the adults ;).
Are you ready to paaaarrrttyy?! For my best friend’s 30th birthday or 20th round 2. I wanted to plan something fun and unique to her personality. She loves going to Vegas but we didn’t want the expense of that trip. Plus with my friends we would have had a Bridesmaids moment and not even make it there. I also know she loves all of the 1920’s mob shows and mob history. The first thing she wanted to do when we went to Vegas was go to the Mob Museum. It was actually really interested definitely worth checking out if you are in Las Vegas. I decided to make her party a 20’s mobster casino theme. We had the party at The Talking Stick, a nice casino resort in town. My friend is not the type you can do a surprise party for, she likes to plan and know what’s going on. I involved her in the planning but I had to leave a few surprises.
