DIY Taylor Swift Birthday Invitations

Kick off the celebration with some fun and creative invitations. Use Taylor Swift album covers and pastel colors to set the tone. You can find adorable printable invitations online, or make your own using red lipstick and glitter for a unique vibe. Adding some Taylor Swift Easter eggs in the design will delight fellow Swifties.

Taylor Swift Birthday Decorations

Transform your living room into a magical realm reminiscent of Taylor’s concerts and music videos. Here’s how:

Color Scheme

Use pastel colors inspired by Taylor’s albums. Incorporate shades of pink, lavender, and light blue to create a dreamy, Swiftie-approved atmosphere. Don’t forget to add lots of sparkle!

Fairy Lights and Disco Balls

Create a whimsical atmosphere with fairy lights draped around the room and disco balls hanging from the ceiling to mimic the sparkle and fun of Taylor’s concerts. Too difficult to hang disco balls? Place disco balls on the table instead and grab a few of these fun disco lights to make the whole room feel like an instant party.

Photo Booth

Set up a photo booth with Taylor Swift-themed decorations like a red carpet, oversized sunglasses, and a cardboard cutout of Taylor. Add props like feather boas, guitars and microphones for kids to pose with. Download these free printable signs to make your party photos extra special.

Table Settings

Use Taylor Swift party decorations, such as a silver Disco ball table runner with place settings featuring heart-shaped sunglasses. Include themed paper goods like plates, napkins, and cups adorned with Taylor’s album art. Or for a more subtle look go with pastel rainbow and silver sparkly disco ball plates layered together for a fun look.

Album Cover Art

Display Taylor’s discography as part of the decor, or print off pictures from the Internet to tape to the walls. Another fun idea is to thrift some old guitars and paint them to represent the different “Eras.” This adds a personal touch and gives the room a unique vibe that any Swiftie would love.

Taylor Swift Themed Food Ideas & Snacks

Delight your party guests with these fun things, each inspired by one of Taylor Swift’s albums:

Taylor Swift (Debut Album): Butterfly Sandwiches

Create mini sandwiches using butterfly-shaped cookie cutters. Fill them with classic favorites like peanut butter and jelly or ham and cheese.

Fearless: “Fearless” Golden Cheese Pizza

Offer a pizza bar with plain cheese pizza where kids can add their favorite toppings.

Speak Now: “Enchanted” Apple Slices

Sliced apples with caramel dip, sprinkled with edible glitter.

Red: “Red” Velvet Cupcakes or Cookies

Make red velvet mini cupcakes or cookies. Even more fun if they’re lip shaped! Decorate with red lipstick-colored frosting.

1989: “Blank Space” Lemonade

Refreshing blue raspberry lemonade with colorful straws. Make a sparkling punch with lemonade, blue raspberry Hawaiian Punch, Sprite (or Sparkling Water) and some vanilla ice cream to look like clouds.

Reputation: “Look What You Made Me Do” Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

Strawberries dipped in dark chocolate with gold sprinkles. Mix in some gummy snakes (or fake plastic snakes) to make your display pop.

Lover: “You Need to Calm Down” Fruit Skewers

Rainbow fruit skewers with a marshmallow on top.

Folklore: “Cardigan” S’mores

Classic s’mores with a cozy twist: use graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Alternatively, make a s’mores trail mix using Honey Graham cereal, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.

Evermore: “Willow” Breadsticks

Twisted breadsticks served with marinara dipping sauce. For a simpler option serve thick pretzel rods instead with Nutella for dipping.

Midnights: “Midnight” Cheese and Cracker Platter

Star-shaped cheese and crackers platter with purple grapes, blackberries, and blueberries.

Dance Party

Have a dance-off to Taylor’s music, featuring popular tracks from each of her albums. Include a disco ball and some colorful lights to create a party atmosphere that will get everyone on their feet and dancing. I used paper mache letters from Hobby Lobby to spell out “DANCE” and painted them black with silver glitter to really set the stage.

Craft Station

Create a friendship bracelet making station with letter beads, inspired by Taylor’s version of “Lover.” Provide a variety of beads and strings so kids can design their own bracelets to take home as a memorable keepsake from the party.

Photo Booth

Use the photo booth set up with Taylor Swift-themed decorations for capturing memories with a Polaroid camera. Include props like red lipstick, oversized sunglasses, and themed signs, allowing kids to take fun and stylish photos that they can cherish forever.

Create a pack of stickers featuring Taylor’s album covers, song lyrics, and other iconic images. Kids can use these to decorate their belongings and show off their Swiftie pride.
