The magical mold burst open the day you were born. I’m serious. I believe every person and every witch’s birthday is cause for a kick-@ss celebration. So why not make the next birthday party magical for that special witch in your life? Or for yourself? Here we explore some enchantingly witchy birthday party themes, decorations, games, and gifts.
I’m one of those people who loves a good themed birthday party. Call me cheesy or old fashioned. And I’ve been thinking lately – birthday parties for witches could have some pretty creative, fun themes! Here’s a couple I’ve thought up along with decoration, game and gift ideas for each.
For this theme, think dark purple, black, and lots of velvet. Tapered black candles, candelabras, and miniature coffins. Find witchy gothic birthday party supplies by visiting Spirit’s 40th birthday party section where there’s black plates, cups, etc. Tablecloths could be velveteen fabric picked up from Joann’s or Walmart. Dim the lights, play soft dark ambient music, and use shaved ice in a bubbling cauldron as the centerpiece OR a fake skull. Skull party favors and small glass vials of alcohol shots that resemble potions! Party-goers could wear fancy masks and veils. Lots of lace and black clothing. Any Victorian or gothic party theme ideas would work for this one! Just add a witchy spin!
This theme could be used for a day or night witch’s birthday party. Colors should be more natural or bright to mimic a fairy or enchanted garden. Spring party supplies work great! Twinkly lights strung around the party. Candles, tea cups and saucers, light Hors d’oeuvres. Flowers and greenery around tables and chairs. A may pole would be awesome! Make it look like an enchanted garden from a fairy tale! There are witches in fairy tales, after all. Have everyone dress in long, wispy clothing, crowns and wings.
Depending on when you’re throwing this witch’s birthday party, harness the magic of the season to inspire your theme. If it’s Spring, all flowers and Ostara themed (see above). For Summer – gardens, the Green Man, the water element (swimming/beach party). In Autumn, a Samhain or Halloween themed witchy birthday party would be a blast! And then in the Winter, all Yule or Winter Solstice decor – evergreens, snow, Winter deities and fairies, etc. Decorate with foliage for that Season. Use seasonal ingredients for party menus and drinks – berries in the Spring, hot beverages in the Winter, apples in Autumn, watermelon in the Summer, etc. Every witch would enjoy a party focusing on the magic of the season!
Instead of the seasons, turn your witchy birthday party into a Sun and Moon party. All decor should focus on the sun or moon. Moon phase garland strung from tables and chairs. Lots of lights and candles. Silver and gold would make a perfect color scheme for this birthday party. Everyone could get fake sun and moon tattoos. Games could include making your own sun or moon water (depending on time of day and supplies). Teams for games: sun coven and moon coven, etc. A cake with half sun half moon icing on top. Moon milk or sun tea as drinks. Here’s an entire menu for a Full Moon party.
Almost every witch I know is a Harry Potter fan. And there are wizards, witches, and magic in Harry Potter. So why not throw a Harry Potter party for the birthday witch? This one will be easier to plan because there are a TON of Harry Potter birthday party resources already online! Google Harry Potter party OR find awesome ideas on Pinterest. Sor everyone into houses for games, play quiditch, drink butter beer every time someone says “Hogwart’s”, etc. This is a great theme for a teen or adult witch!
We talked about the gothic Victorian witch party in number 1, BUT what about another time period of witchcraft? Throw a Colonial witch’s birthday party and be inspired by TV shows like Salem. How about a Medieval witchy birthday party? You could be REALLY creative and throw a vintage witch birthday party and choose a decade like the 50’s, 60’s, etc. and mix witchcraft into it! Watch The Love Witch movie for ideas on a 70’s witchy birthday party.
Here are some general ideas for a witchy birthday party menu. Choose your drinks, food and desserts based on your witchy theme!
Again, depending on your theme, choose witchy party games and crafts below OR tailor them to fit your theme. These are witch-crafts and games nearly any witch (or muggle) would enjoy!
Last but not least, let’s talk about a witch’s birthday gifts. What does the witch in your life absolutely love doing? Is she a green witch – give her seeds, gardening supplies, books on foraging and herbs. Kitchen witches might enjoy an apron, oven mitt, carved wooden spoons or spatula that says kitchen witch! Tea kettles, herbal teas, and tea accouterments are great gifts for almost any witch. Books on astrology, mythology, witchcraft, religion, etc. make great gifts for witches. So do crystals, incense, essential oils and candles. Witches are easy to shop for.
I’d like to put a lot of buzz words here but that would be too …September 15, 2023
