11 Oz The Great And Powerful Party Ideas

Disney’s newest movie, “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, is only a few days from opening in theaters. If you want to throw a party inspired by the Land of Oz and L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters here are 11 great and fun ideas. An Oz-inspired party is not only for children; adults can also have tons of fun.

Rainbow cupcakes, poppy-shaped cookies, your own yellow brick road and wizard-worthy top hats (like the ones worn by James Franco’s Oscar Diggs, the magician) are only a few ideas to make a memorable party for any special occasion. For a more magical ambiance, enlist your kids to make an Emerald City backdrop or  blow gigantic bubbles inspired by Glinda, played by Michelle Williams in the movie. Just let your imagination lead the way.
