As a magician and magical entertainer, I get to go to a lot of parties. Some of these parties are must attend social events on the community calendar. A few years ago I was part of the entertainment at Toronto’s Venetian Ball.

I also get to go to many fairs, festivals, receptions, weddings, bridal showers, and yes, birthday parties.

I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t work.

I hope to be able to share with you ideas that you can incorporate into your parties to make them more successful. The focus will, of course, be on children’s birthday parties. Some of the general areas will include:

  • seasonal themes
  • food ideas
  • decorating ideas
  • crafts
  • party games


Do you have a subject area you’d like to see covered? Add your ideas to the comments and I’ll see what I can do!
