Setting the Stage

Transform your home into a Swiftie paradise with themed activity stations, each representing a beloved Taylor Swift era. From the dreamy pastels of “Lover” to the moody blues of “Midnights,” your space will become a vibrant homage to Taylor’s journey.

Here’s a quick breakdown of how to set up your Swift-themed stations:

  • Midnights Corner: A cozy nook adorned in dark blue sparkles, perfect for crafting friendship bracelets, later transforming into a glittering dance party.
  • Lover Slime Table: Set up outdoors, this station is all about the messy aftermath of love, complete with rainbow decor and the chance to get hands-on with some colorful slime.
  • Reputation Tattoos: In the kitchen or pantry, create a mysterious vibe with black and red snake decor, where temporary tattoos meet edgy vibes.
  • 1989 Dance Party: Near the TV, set up a space where kids can shake it off with microphones, karaoke, and light blue sequins.
  • Red Makeup Station: By a mirror or in the bathroom, invite partygoers to indulge in bold red lips and sparkly makeup, surrounded by Red Album decor.
  • Fairy Hair near Bookshelves: With Speak Now purple decor, this enchanting spot is where every lock tells a tale, and fairy hair becomes the crown of the day.

The Scavenger Hunt Unfolds

Lead your little guests on an adventure with clues inspired by Taylor’s lyrics and album themes. Each riddle guides them to the next activity, blending the excitement of discovery with the joy of celebration.

Here are the clues (and don’t forget to download a PDF of them to print off at the end of this post).

Friendship Bracelets (Midnights)

“In a corner where friendships bloom like MIDNIGHTS’ glow, find a treasure trove where threads and colors flow. Where beads are bejeweled and dreams take flight, make the whole place shimmer, crafting friendship just right.”

Set up a table in a “corner” somewhere with Midnights decor (dark blue sparkles)

Slime (Lover)

In the afterglow where love went astray, venture outside where remnants of a messy breakup lay. Taylor’s lyrics don’t mince, in this gooey sticky mix, find the aftermath of a LOVER’s messy fix.”

Set this one up outside on back pati0 (or somewhere that can get a little messy). Decorate with rainbow themed Lover decor.

13 Tattoos (Reputation)

“Find the place where ink leaves a trace, with thirteen symbols, each holding snake-like grace. Search for a snack, Taylor’s lyrics echo here, look for a big REPUTATION and tattoos might appear.”

Place this activity in the kitchen with Black/Red and Snake Decor

Dance Party (1989)

“Where beats are lively, and the rhythm’s swift, a spot where 1989 dance moves uplift. Shake it off and move your feet, to the place where the music and dance party’s heart beat.”

Stage this area near a TV. Use Microphones and play karaoke videos on YouTube. Decorate with light blue and white colors.

Makeup (RED)

“Find the spot where beauty’s bold, where RED lips and glitter will unfold. Look near a mirror, where makeup’s sweet, this is where you’ll find your first treat.”

Add a makeup station table near a bathroom door. Showcase Red Album Decor with red colors and a fun black hat if you have one.

Fairy Hair (Speak Now)

“In a realm enchanted, where whispers of ‘Speak Now’ blend, seek the spot where sparkly strands transcend. Where every lock tells a tale, in this magical affair, make the whole place sparkle with Fairy Hair.”

Use Speak Now inspired purple decor and butterflies, and set this up near a bookshelf with storybooks.

Snack Time & Birthday Wishes (Fearless)

“To celebrate with all your peers, where candles flicker, and FEARLESS birthday wishes draw near. Look where the feast and joy appear, it’s time to celebrate The Best Day with birthday cheer!”

After the hunt, gather everyone around a disco ball-adorned table for snacks and birthday cake, creating a festive atmosphere with rainbow, silver, and blue decor. It’s a moment to sing, celebrate, and enjoy the feast, embodying the fearless spirit of a true Swiftie party.
