Wizard of Oz Party Plan

At this classic party, let guests follow the yellow brick road to your door. Serve up down home country fare, let guests build their own witch-mushing houses, and finish off with a witchy cupcake.

A Pretty Picnic

A Pretty Picnic

Set up an outdoor feast on blue gingham tablecloths. Yellow roses bring to mind the yellow brick road, and ruby red napkins and serving platters go with those sparkly slippers.

Build Dorothy's House

Build Dorothy's House

Find homemade gingerbread house patterns on the internet, and bake them in advance of the party. Plan plenty of time for everyone to finish their creations. Wrap aluminum foil around cardboard circles for the finished houses to go on. Royal icing works best as the glue -- have several bags for the guests to share so there isn't too much waiting. Set out plenty of candy in bowls too. Tuck black and white legs made out of fondant underneath the house to make it look like it had fallen on the witch.

Witch Cupcakes

Green frosted cupcakes turn into little witches with chocolate dipped cone hats, candy corn noses, M&M eyes, and black licorice shoelaces as hair and eyebrows.

Lions and Tigers and Bears. Oh my! For the take-home favors, fill a basket with a simple red gingham fabric square, a courage medal, heart necklace, and a diploma along with a Toto cookie.
