A Magic Birthday Party

Harris' birthday party was super fun and it was made all the more fun by the fact that it was super easy to put together!  We went ahead and splurged on hiring a magician to come to our home and it was well worth it.  He was no more expensive than going to a venue for a party and the boys absolutely loved his show.  It made it a lot easier to have 12 eight and nine year old boys in the house when they were occupied and intent on what the magician was doing!

The food was simple since the party was after lunch.  We served a card cake, magic wands and top hats with bunny ears.

Since Harris' interest in magic has really been centered around card tricks we made a sheet cake to look like a 9 of spades.


The magic wands were pretzel sticks dipped in white chocolate.

I tried to make sugar cookie bunny ears to stick in the chocolate muffins but they were a complete failure.  Therefore, I just printed and cut bunny ears out.  They looked way neater and cuter than the cookies would have.

Bryce and I made the light up magic sign!

For the favors we gave each child a brand new deck of cards and candy sticks. Simple.

Our family with the birthday boy!
