Party Recap

The WWP party is a great theme for tween girls. What tween doesn't love Selena Gomez right now? It turned out really cool and I think that the girls really enjoyed the wizard costumes and the lotion potion activity.

The first thing that we did was have all the girls get dressed up in their Wizards gear. If you are a fan of the show, then you know that Alex, Justin and Max attended Wiz Tech, a Harry Potter-esque academy where the uniform was a black hooded cape and circled lens glasses. They were then photographed in our photo booth. I am taking each girl's photo and creating a Wiz Tech diploma that will go with their thank you notes.

The table was created using turquoise and purple. Not only are these prevalent in the WWP merchandise, they are also a favorite of the birthday girl's! I used a white tablecloth with a turquoise organza runner. Turquoise and purple plates were stacked on top of each other, with turquoise napkins and purple cutlery. An tower vase with turquoise and purple feathers was at the center of the table with a "crystal ball" on each side. (I turned some lighting fixtures upside down to create the crystal ball - thanks, Home Depot!)

After the girls ate, it was time for the activities. We made "Lotion Potion," using different cosmetic colors, fragrances, and glitter. Each girl used unscented lotion and stirred in their choice of glitter, color, and smell, and then it was transferred to a 4 oz. plastic cosmetic bottle. A custom circle sticker was placed on the bottle, and the girls got to bring them home.

Another activity was created their own magic wands. They used pencils as the "base" and then wrapped the wand in glittery scrapbook paper. Jeweled stickers were used to add some bling to the wands. After the wands were complete, we had our "Spell Casting" lesson. I compiled a list of WWP spells used in the show, typed them up and rolled them into scrolls. Each guest chose a scroll and performed the spell?. The other girls got to guess what the spell did/meant.

    Hi Mary - Are you doing the lotion for a private, personal party? Or are you a planner who will do this a lot? For a personal party, you can find all the materials at Michaels, most likely. Look in the area where they sell soap making supplies. You will be able to find scents, cosmetic glitter, bottles, etc. There is also base lotion, but you can probably buy plain unscented lotion at your drugstore for cheaper. These are retail prices, so not recommended if you are a party planner. If a planner, buy in bulk. Go online and google wholesale lotion making supplies. There are lots of sites where you can buy 5 gallon buckets of lotion, pump bottles, scents, glitters, and packaging, etc. Hope that helps!

    Hi Cheryl - I just bought a foam core board and used a box cutter to cut the rounded corners. I already had the acrylic paints and paint brushes. Then I just googled the Wizards of Waverly Place logo, sketched it onto the foam core, and then painted it in while I watched t.v. LOL. It took a little while, but it only cost $2 to do.
