Max’s Wickedly Wizard Party


I styled this table for a little boy‚Äôs 7th birthday.¬†¬†I¬†incorporated¬†hues of black, dark blues,¬† grays, and yellow¬†to give¬†the dessert¬†table a vintage and haunted¬†feel.¬†¬†Going with the¬†haunted and spooky vibe, creepy elements like owls, spiders, rats, cauldrons, and test tubes were used for the table decor and favors. Wizardly treats included items like¬†wizard‚Äôs teeth, magical wands, cauldron cakes, and candy corn push-pops. ¬†The real star of¬†this¬†wickedly sweet¬†table¬†was ‚ÄúMax‚Äôs Book of Spells‚ÄĚ cake. We loved the little mouse and owl!¬† This table made a little boy very happy!¬† I¬†hope all the elements of Max's¬†party inspires you to host a¬†fun Harry Potter screening,¬† Dress-Up, or Halloween party!

Design Inspiration

Using Harry Potter as the inspiration, I created a Wizard-inspired party as opposed to pulling in specific Harry Potter characters.  Since it was also for an older child (and mostly boys attending the party), I wanted to create more of a haunted vibe than something too cutesy for a kid's birthday party.

Decorating Style

Simple, sophisticated, playful.

Have you seen 'Max's Book of Spells' cake?


I got inspiration for this event by starting with the color theme, season, and a set of vintage looking cake pedestals I found.  Everything fell into place after that!  Just look around you and you'll be amazed by what can inspire a whole party theme!

I definitely like the theme! I am a Harry Potter fan, too! I admire the details. And oh, I love the handwritten notes, labels and banners. What font is that? It looks so appropriate!
