I have a feeling this year is going to be the year of Encanto-themed birthday parties! I mean, if you haven’t been singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” for the past two months straight, are you even a parent?
We are fully on board the Encanto train in our house, so it was a no-brainer that we would be doing an Encanto birthday party for my daughter’s 4th birthday in a couple months.
So, if you’re looking for some easy, unique Encanto birthday party ideas, you’ve come to the right place! For now, I’ve got all the items I’ve found so far while I’m planning, but stay tuned and pin this for later –because after my daughter’s party in April, I’ll update this post with photos from her party.
The Elements of an Encanto Birthday Party Theme
The movie Encanto really lends itself perfectly to a birthday party theme. Not only does the movie have bright, fun, festive visuals, but it all revolves around a family party (the gift ceremony)!
With the added themes of flowers, butterflies, and glowing magic, it’s pretty much got all the elements you need for any good party. So, to check all the Encanto boxes, you can include things like:
- Bright colors
- Fiesta decorations
- Succulents and Cacti
Encanto Birthday Party Activity Ideas
I’m still a couple months out from my daughter’s birthday party, but my wheels are already turning with all the fun (and EASY) games and activities the kids can do that will tie in with Encanto and/or its characters. I’ll update more with what we end up doing after her party, but here are my thought-starters for now:
- Isabella’s Flower Garden: Pick up some artificial flowers or felt cut-outs and let kids make their own gardens.
- Make a Casita Door: Set out blank sheets of brown construction paper, or kraft card stock, and use gold paint pens, gold letter stickers, and glitter glue (if you dare) to let kids make their own Casita doors.
- Julieta’s Healing Arepas: Set up a cookie-decorating station for kids to make their own “arepas.”
- Pepa’s Hurricane: For an outdoor / summer party, set up sprinklers for a makeshift hurricane from Pepa!
- Karaoke: We all love belting out Encanto songs, so set up a karaoke machine and let the kids (and let’s be honest… adults) go wild!
What I’m Buying for Our Encanto Birthday Party
These are some of the items I've found while planning my daughter's Encanto birthday party – I can't wait to see all the ideas come together!
I always say, every good party starts with the invitation! I love the custom Casita door on this birthday party invitation – my daughter is already so excited to have her very own door with her name on it. Plus, the adorable little Mirabel on the back is such a fun touch!
This balloon garland is stunning! The bright colors and butterfly additions are perfect for an Encanto themed party.
I just love this "The Miracle is You" sign and it’s matching “Hola Casita” sign for party decor! And after the Encanto party, it can double as wall art in my daughter's room. I know she'll love the colors and butterflies in it.
These cupcake toppers are just so cute, and I love that they tie into the invitation and "the Miracle is You" sign perfectly. These are a great way to incorporate the Encanto characters without the party being super commercial looking.
I'm always a sucker for giant flowers, and these are no exception. The colors are perfect for an Encanto party!
Obviously, butterflies are a big part of the Encanto story, so they should be a big party of any Encanto birthday party, too!
Bright colors, fringe, pom-poms... slam dunk!
This will be so cute, layered with the pom pom garland above. Love it!
This floral chandelier just screamed "Encanto" to me. It looks like it's straight out of Isabella's bedroom! It's a must-have at our party.
What Encanto birthday party would be complete without a mini Mirabel?! I love this dress from Etsy, because it maintains some of the details on the dress. I know my daughter is going to want to wear this dress over and over and over after her party, so I wanted it to be better quality than just a cheap, screen-printed frock.
I just love the bright, metallic sheen on these plates, and they match great with the butterfly dessert plates.
I'm obsessed with these floral butterfly plates for any and all Encanto-themed desserts (Julieta's buñuelos, anyone?!).
These party cups will really tie together the whole Encanto fiesta.
...Right alongside the fringe fiesta napkins!
These little "magic butterflies" would be a perfect addition to a birthday gift for or a party favor. Just wind them up and put them inside a card or box, and they'll flutter out when opened!
How cute are these for Encanto birthday party favors? Butterflies, stars, even a little smiley face with Mirabel-esque glasses (sort of...)!
