Embracing a Healthy Family: Taylor Swift Birthday Party Theme

Taylor Swift Birthday Party Theme

If your daughter is really into Taylor Swift, I gathered resources to help plan as my own six year old loves Taylor.  I really like Taylor as she's staying true to herself and is not buying into the whole sell your body mentality of Hollywood.  She's, so far, a good role model.

Party Decorations & Favors:
When planning your party, you will want to get the perfect party supplies for decorating.  It appears that Ebay is your safest bet in securing the party plates and other ware such as that.  Ebay and Etsy will also have party favors and other decor.

Here are links to my other posts with various Etsy shop's with unique, cute and nice Taylor Swift themed products such as invitations, buttons, magnets, Scrabble tile necklaces, bottle caps and much more:

Staging Area:

Once you decide on your party supplies, you can start planning for the "staging area" for decorating which you can find on Ebay, Etsy or be creative.
  • Buy posters at Walmart or local stores.  Those will make nice decorations on the walls and can be easily transferred to the bedroom for a memorable party favor or given away as favors to your guests.
  • Print pictures from the internet and make your own poster collages of Taylor.  If you are looking for a particular color theme, be choosy over the photos you select and most of the Ebay/Etsy sellers will customize so don't be afraid to ask for customized products with your own picture.
  • Chicoparty.com has white musical notes that you can add to pink guitar picks such as the ones at http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ and decorate the table.  The guitar picks also make nice party favors to take home.  If you are crafty, you can even decorate the guitar picks with Taylor Swift pictures.
  • Add the balloons, banner and streamers and you are ready to go with the decor.
Activities:

As the guests arrive, as they never arrive on time and it can be boring for those that arrived early or on-time, have Taylor's music playing in the background.  A fun activity to start off with is making something as it also breaks the ice for those that don't know one another. 
  • Make name tags and let the girls decorate with bling.  Use the cheaper stick on types or if you are creative, you can make them out of cardboard.  Use pictures you found on the internet and print on sticker paper for a better look.  Etsy sellers will also sell stickers pre-made to give it a more professional look.  Choose stick on gems to add the bling that all girls love.  This is an activity that will keep them busy when they first arrive.
  • Make Taylor inspired necklaces by choosing the Scrabble tiles (linked above) and buy your own string to have the girls finish the masterpieces.  They can use colored string to braid the colors together.  The possibilities are endless.
  • If you are going to have food to take home, buy take out boxes and have the girls decorate with stickers and other craft items to personalize it to give it a Taylor look.  You can even have a contest on the best Taylor box.
  • Get the new Wii Band game that has Taylor singing to let the girls be their own star or just have her music playing with the girls singing to them.  Buy blonde wigs, jewelry and let them have fun. Make a video as a keepsake of their band performance.  If you prelabel the CDs, it won't take long to download the video and save to each disc.  You can also preprint the CD covers with a picture of Taylor and let the girls decorate the CD covers.  They will love the idea of seeing themselves and each other again and again.
  • Play Taylor Swift trivia by making little cards (index cards work great) and place the question on one side and the answer on the other side.  If the kids are little, an adult might have to read.  Turn the theme into anything Taylor related for a fun time.
  • Have the girls decorate sugar cookies in the shapes of guitars and music notes.  This is always fun to do if you have selections of icing and cookie toppings like sprinkles.
  • If you are disgustingly rich, you can book Taylor for your daughter's birthday at: http://www.bookingentertainment.com/artists/country/Taylor_Swift.php

Here is what I have put together for our own party still in the planning stage:
