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.

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:


Taylor Swift Party Ideas & More Great Personalized Products from HTM Designs

I'm making a series of party theme ideas focusing on Taylor Swift as there are so many great Etsy and Ebay shops out there that lets you have an effortless party full of great ideas! 

HTM Designs has two shops, one on Ebay and one on Etsy called MyHTMDesigns.  For the Ebay shop, if you are looking for perfect themed products, this is your shop.  You can pick from the following:

  • Mini Candy Bar Wrappers
  • Seasonal and Holiday Products
  • Kiss Labels
  • Hot Tea & Hot Cocoa Wrappers
  • Water Bottle Label Wrappers
  • Hang Tags & Favor Boxes
  • Girl Scout Products
  • Address Labels
  • Games and Coloring Pages
  • Mint Matchboxes
  • Lollipop Thank You Cards
  • Popcorn Wrappers
  • Bookmarks
  • Advice and Wishes Cards
  • Baby Shower
  • Wedding and Bridal
  • Jimmy Buffett and Parrotheads

  • Sports Stuff
  • Other
Other than Taylor Swift, you can see there are many other themes available but I'm focusing on Taylor only.

This is a set of 24 CUPCAKE TOPPERS. Laser printed on heavy cardstock with the design on both sides. These do not include cupcakes. These are perfect for decorating your own cupcakes for parties, TV night and more. They don't have to be used in cupcakes, also great in appetizers too! An impressive addition to your table!

The photo shows the toppers on a lollipop stick, which I no longer use; I have changed them to be on a plastic pic stick (assorted colors), as they hold up in icing, and the lollipop sticks did not last in the icing.

The Candy Bar Wrappes are a favorite of mine as I really like the picture.  This is nice because the price does include the silver foils to place over the bars of chocolate.  Hershey quit using the silver wrappers some time ago and to make the bars look really nice, you will want to use the foil over them as they look so professional.

This is a set of 12 candy bar wrappers. These wrappers fit standard size Hershey chocolate bars. This does not include the chocolate bars. This is for wrappers only and does include the silver wrapper foils. They come pre-cut and ready to wrap (directions included). Laser printed on glossy paper for a totally professional look. 

This is a unique idea that I never thought of!  Napkin wraps adds to the look of the party especially when coordinated with the theme.  These Taylor Swift themed cutlery napkin wraps are perfect to finish off the look or if you are having an outdoor party, the wind won't carry off your napkins.

This is a set of 24 custom designed napkin/cutlery wrappers. A super addition to compliment your tableware and decorations! Each wrap measures approx. 1.5" x 4.5". Laser printed on heavy cardstock for a totally professional look. Wrappers come pre-cut. Simply wrap around your item and secure with tape or glue stick. So easy! These are can also be used to wrap around party favors and small gifts, too! A sure hit!

Now, game time!  What child doesn't like scratch off games?  This is a great party idea to jazz up the celebration.

This is a set of 20 scratch-off game cards. The cards read; 'Do you have Taylor's guitar?' Scratch off the 'silver scratch pad' to see if you find the guitar. There is one winner per pack. The remaining loser cards have Joe Jonas saying 'loser'! The winning card is always the first one in the pack. These are perfect for parties, sleepovers, goodie bags and more. Play for fun, or reward the winner with a prize (not included).  

Now if you don't like the idea of having "loser" cards, you can always have inexpensive party favors to hand out to the non-winners.

This is just a sampling of what is available at HTM Designs so the next time you are planning a party and want to do it inexpensively, visit the Ebay shop!
