A Descendants birthday party is wicked fun! If you have a villain lover in your life, you’ll definitely want to use these Descendants birthday party ideas to plan the best party ever.
DIY Descendants Decor
The color scheme for Descendants is bright and vibrant with purples and green for Mal and blues and reds for Evie. For this party, I pulled out my bin of Halloween props and used as many as I could incorporate. The kids favorite part was the bubbling cauldron in the center of the table. I used warm water and dry ice inside a bowl in the cauldron to create the effect.
The green dragon skin metallic material was found in the fabric section at Hobby Lobby. I had just a couple of yards cut to add to the table decor. Lastly, I used green and purple plates to really give it a vibrant look. I have two versions of the water bottles (available for free download below) including one for Mal and one with an apple for Evie. The birthday girls (twins) each loved one of the main characters so I balanced the party decor accordingly.
Descendants Cupcakes & Food Ideas
At this Descendants party, the menu includes bite size sandwiches, poison popcorn sprayed with green food coloring and fresh fruit. We also had colorful candy options for guests to enjoy including green rock candy, gummy worms and gumballs. The cupcakes are my favorite! They were themed to Maleficent and the Evil Queen.
Descendants Birthday Party Activities
A good party has plenty of activities to entertain guests. For this Descendants themed party, I set up Evie’s Make-Over Station. The make-up and nail polish is from the Dollar Tree. I also planned a Mal’s Tattoo and Hair Station. These tattoos were ordered online, but I have also seen them recently at Party City. I purchased cans of colored hair spray from Wal-Mart and let each kid pick which color streaks they wanted. The color is temporary and washes out. Lastly, guests were able to decorate their own ‘magic mirror’ to take home. The mirrors are also a Dollar Tree find. Adults helped them hot glue jewels to the mirrors to customize them.
