Step away from the usual Disney princesses and embark on a journey filled with mystery and wonder. Let's explore the captivating decorations and engaging games that made Little Jo's 10th birthday party truly extraordinary.

The Cake Table: A Centerpiece Fit for Storybrooke

At the heart of the party, we crafted a mesmerizing cake table that paid homage to the captivating world of "Once Upon a Time." Drawing inspiration from Mayor Regina's office, we adorned the table with birch tree wallpaper, creating a striking backdrop for the festivities. In a color palette of deep blue, black, red, and white, the hand-painted cake resembled the enchanting woods from the show's opening sequence. To top it off, we added a stunning Once Upon a Time cake topper, sourced from Etsy, to add that extra touch of magic.

Décor: Bringing the Fairy Tale to Life

Every detail of the party was carefully designed to transport guests into the enchanting realm of "Once Upon a Time." Curly branches and lacy white metal canisters from IKEA added a whimsical touch, while vibrant red velvet heart ornaments, found right after Valentine's Day, evoked the essence of true love's power. The popcorn boxes, filled with red-tinted kettle corn, set the stage for a delicious treat. These boxes are part of the Once Upon A Time Party Printables set available on Etsy.

The captivating bowl full of apples, reminiscent of Regina's office, added an air of intrigue to the celebration. To match each character from the show, we used the Once Upon A Time Party Printables set, featuring labels like "Regina's Apple Treats." The result: a delightful display of goodies that transported guests to the heart of Storybrooke.

Captivating Games for Young Adventurers

What's a party without games? We curated a series of interactive games that stayed true to the show's theme, captivating guests and ensuring a memorable experience.

Mr. Gold's Pawn Shop: A Treasured Adventure

Our first game took guests on a journey to Mr. Gold's pawn shop, a sensation created with the help of captivating signage. Inside, a wide array of mysterious objects awaited exploration, each adding to the magical ambiance. We surprised the kids by revisiting the shop later, asking them to recall as many details as possible. The child with the most accurate recollection emerged victorious, creating a sense of wonder and delight.

Character Scavenger Hunt: Unravel the Secrets of Storybrooke

To deepen their connection with the show's characters, we created personalized storybooks for each child. These books contained black-and-white photos with essential elements blocked out. The children had to search high and low throughout the party space, finding full-color versions of the hidden photos. This engaging scavenger hunt not only added excitement but also allowed kids unfamiliar with the show to get to know the characters better.

All Magic Comes with a Price: A Thrilling Auction Game

As a final treat, we designed an auction-style game themed around the phrase "All Magic Comes with a Price." Participants used their bonus golden chocolate coins, earned throughout the party, to bid on mysterious satin drawstring pouches. Some contained desirable prizes such as Play-Doh or a Slinky, while others held humorous items like rocks or cotton swabs. This delightful game left the children eagerly anticipating the mystery prize within each pouch.
