Incredibly Magical Wizard of Oz Birthday Party

 wizard of oz movie themed birthday party ideas

Come and follow the yellow brick road down to Emerald City for this incredibly magical Wizard of Oz Birthday Party, as beautifully dreamed up by Zehra Taskin of Couture Event Styling! This year is the 75th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz (can you believe it?!) so this theme is perfectly timed and absolutely overflowing with inspiration. From “Professor Marvel’s fortune telling table” and fun costumes for the kids and adults alike – to a super clever nod to the movie’s “living apple trees” –  it all goes to show that there really IS no place like home… especially with a such a fun party in your backyard! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– A Yellow Brick Road pathway to an Emerald City backdrop + adorable brick road cookies
– Blue gingham ribbons, printables & decor to match Dorothy’s dress + her famous ruby red slippers
– Rainbow topped cake with Dorothy, Toto & Dorothy’s Kansas farm, filled with rainbow layers
– Magical (& wicked) red poppies on the cupcakes & centerpieces + the infamous Wicked Witch legs peeking out from under the dessert table

PARTY DETAILS as told by Zehra

My daughter is in love with The Wizard Of Oz so this year she wanted that to be the theme of her birthday party. I’m so glad I went with what she wanted as it was sooo much fun! :) We tried to include most of the characters like the Wicked Witch of the East, Good Witch Glinda, Ballerina Munchkin, Lolly Pop Boy, the Tin Man, the Lion, Scarecrow and Aunty Em.

The girls arrived and all had the opportunity to take a Dorothy apron to become Dorothys :). We had an Emerald City backdrop for the children to really enjoy having their photos taken. They even got entertained by Dorothy herself!

This is a great theme! I love the gingham pattern carried throughout the elements. The homemade apple tree is fantastic.
