Harry Potter fans will definitely have seen JK Rowling’s prequel to the Wizarding World, the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, introducing us to Newt Scamander and his Niffler and Bowtruckle friends, Jacob and tons of magical adventure. Let’s take you back to the 1920s with these ideas on How To Throw A Fantastic Beasts Themed Party:
1) The 1920s
We’ve already mentioned the first idea. Have guests arrive in 1920s dress – you can opt for a glamorous 1920s themed party or a simple, everyday wear for something closer to the original movie wardrobe. If in winter, long coats, scarves and a few bowties and hats will be wonderful. Find inspiration here.
2) Have Some Bling
Having scatters of gold jewellery everywhere will add to the feel of naughty niffler stuffing his tummy with shiny goods. You don’t have to throw your real diamonds and pearls into the mix – Amazon sells fake gold jewellery at a dime. Niffler’s like anything shiny, so you can add anything to your strategically placed bowls and boxes of treasures, like shiny silver pens, or watches. And don’t forget those faux pearls! Maybe let the children go fastest-finger-first and grab their costume jewellery as party favors – make sure to add some yummy chocolate coins.
3) The Owl Balloon Arch
An impressive balloon arch to welcome guests will set the tone for your Fantastic Beasts party. This beauty was created by a company in Indonesia, but any one of our favorite balloon décor suppliers can re-create this masterpiece for you:
4) Fantastic Beasts Themed Cake
