Magic and Balloon Twisting Birthday Party

by kateG (follow)
When Mr 7, asked if he could have a magic party theme for his birthday, I immediately got to work.

I am so used to self-catering for kids’ parties that this year I decided to go easy and outsource to see what I could come up with. Needless to say, I think outsourcing could be the way forward for me from here on in!



It all started with the invitation…Thanks to the help of my very creative friend, she made party invites that looked like magic wands. I would have loved something like this when I was younger! The kids all loved receiving them.



This August, to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week (1-7 August), NUK is giving away a complete collection of Nature Sense products, including the NUK Nature Sense Electric Breast Pump, along with Nature Sense Bottles and Teats.
The Geelong Crochet Club meets on a regular basis to learn crochet, meet other local mums, and to have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along.
Next, the entertainment…In September school holidays, I took the boys to have a morning with the amazing Steve Wickenton from Birthday Party Magic.

For 1.5 hours, Steve had the boys hooked on his magic show and then his jaw dropping balloon twisting workshop. He turned a room of kids who had no idea how to twist a balloon, let alone create something meaningful, into a room of elaborate balloon creations. So, I was naturally delighted when Steve told me he was free for Mr 7’s big bash.



And he did not disappoint. Steve managed to hold the group of 16 excitable seven-year-olds and kept them interested. He wowed and excited them with this simple, yet hilarious magic show. He got the birthday boy involved as well as a couple of his friends which kept the kids glued to what he was doing. The kids seriously couldn’t get enough.

Nothing beats seeing their looks of amazement and wonder when Steve nailed trick, after trick, after trick. At the end of the show, each child was asked to line up to be given a lollipop and birthday boy was given a card with a $5 note. Which Mr 7, was naturally chuffed to bits with.



The magical sight of Japan’s famous cherry blossoms will be on show right here in Victoria this September and October in a family-friendly festival, and you could win a family pass!

After an interlude to chomp on their lollipop, fill themselves with sugar and stretch their legs, they were greeted with buckets of colourful balloons.

Steve spent the next few minutes showing them how to twist their own balloon creations, including a belt, a dog, a sword and a basic hat. He then asked the kids to get their creative juices flowing and make their own elaborate balloon hats creations. And boy did they run with it! Just seeing the kids’ faces light up with excitement as they continued to add to their balloon accessory.

Steve was nothing short of amazing and was worth every cent.



Then came the cake…I was highly recommended the services of the talented Vanessa from Delishness.



I really had no pre-conceived idea of what the cake should look like. I merely told her my budget and the party theme. I gave her creative license to do what she does best, and boy did she come up with the goods! A jaw dropping creation that became the talking point of the party. It looked too good to eat, however, the kids had no trouble tucking when they realised it was all edible.



So, with the cake sorted, I wanted to see whether I could find something balloon related to put in a party bag that was a little more exciting than just a couple of balloons. Thanks to the shop that seemingly does everything you need and more, I found Magic Plastic – Balloon Toy and Model Making Kit at K Mart.

I got the G boys to test them out and within minutes that were creating balls of goo and blowing them on to a balloon with the straw it came with. SOLD! I also added some magic popping candy, chocolate, lollies, bubbles and a sticky window walking man.

The party ran for 2.5 hours and it was surprisingly stress free and very enjoyable. I enjoyed being able to sit back and watch the kids enjoy their time together. Magic!

Birthday by was thrilled with his party and we sent home some very happy and excitable kids…not sure how some of them fitted their balloon creations in their cars however!

Here’s to outsourcing birthday parties!
