a magical birthday

A craftmates collaboration that is closest to my heart is my daughter Sofia's 7th birthday party.  Sofia, like any girl her age, is obsessed with the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, so a magic themed birthday party naturally came into play.

Guests were greeted with a personalized wizard hat, a glow stick that served as a wand (or a necklace) and a cape magically sewed by Virns.

A makeshift craft table was provided for the kids who wanted to add more sparkle and oomph to their wizard hats.

Craftmates' ever-present photo booth decked with special Cricut cutouts for Sofia was a treat for the guests.

The main event of the party was Bob the Magician's magic show where the kids were entertained with funny and amazing tricks featuring the birthday girl as his special assistant. 

 Aimee adorned the whole house with purple, black, gold and green pompoms, another staple in any craftmates party.  Irma provided the backdrop design and signage.(And everything paper-related for the party!)

I made Sofia a cupcake tree, topped with an 8 inch dark chocolate cake with her little edible replica wearing the exact same dress.  It was my little surprise for her that day.

The different flavored cupcakes came in different cupcake sleeves with varying colors, prints and designs.  I made this through the magic of Cricut Lite's Cupcake Wrappers.

Sofia's guests were each given a magician's box filled with special treats and tricks to take home.  This perfect giveaway is from Birthday Express. Fabulous gift tags were provided by no other than our resident paper addict, Irma. 

23 kids under one roof... I shudder at the thought of having that much kids inside my living room.  I remember chaos and mess, but I will never forget their happy faces, and the beaming smile of my beautiful daughter.  It was truly a magical party. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a sweet and magical Thursday,
