Once there was a four year old girl who became enchanted by magic.  She walked around her house saying, "There's nothing in my hands!  Nothing in my hands!" and then made a coin appear.  So it was no surprise when her dad and I asked her what kind of birthday party she wanted she shouted, "A magic party with a real, live magician!" Poof!  The magic party appeared in our very own home.

Having a mom who is a retired art teacher comes in handy when party planning.  Together, with even a little help from the Birthday Girl, we created these invitations.  The party details pulled out of the magic hat.  {tutorial to come!} magic party

No magic party would be complete without the fun, Pinterest favorite 'balloon wreath' in theme colors of pink, white and black that greeted guests and set the tone for the party.

Ellie loved her Misty Magician Lalaloopsy Doll and that is where her magic obsession originated.  It was only fitting for Misty to be out on display.  "Happy Birthday" banners from Tomkat Studio hung by balloons in the living room and play room.  A photo booth was set up with back drop, painted frames, bunny ears and magician hats.  Kids size tables were set out for the littlest party guests.  Those rabbits in hats are puppets from The Land of Nod - so fun!

The Magic Show was a huge hit!  The kids loved it and Ellie took her job as Assistant For The Day very seriously!
