I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the new Mary Poppins Returns! It’s coming out at Christmastime this year and the new Disney Movie stars Emily Blunt as the magical Mary Poppins and Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, take a look…
I’m so excited to take my daughter and for a whole new generation to be introduced to Mary Poppins! I know little girls every where will fall in love and I know Mary Poppins birthday parties, baby showers and more will be popping up everywhere! To help you get a jump start on your Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious party planning, check out our ideas for Mary Poppins Returns party decorations, food and supplies!
Mary Poppins Returns Party Decor
You can see from the trailer that red and navy are prominent colors in the nanny’s outfits in Mary Poppins Returns, so I’d recommend starting with those classic colors as your party decor base. I love this set of coordinated Blue Tissue Paper Tassel Banner, Pom Poms and Fans. The pom poms and fans would look beautiful hanging over a dessert table with red paper kites mixed in between!
You could also use these Red and White Polka Dot Garlands to add pops of color to a feature table, gift table or even the front door.
And of course no party table is complete without themed confetti on the table! How about umbrella confetti for your Mary Poppins party?
A key to really making your event feel like Mary Poppins herself might arrive at any moment is to use umbrellas, kites and her big duffel bag wherever you can! Here are a few party setups we absolutely love!
Mary Poppins Returns Party Food & Cake
Whimsical party themes like Mary Poppins are ideal for dreaming up playful cakes, cupcakes and treats! There are so many things you could do…
Keep it simple and add some Umbrella Cupcake Toppers for an easy themed sweet treat:
I love making sugar cookies as favors for my kid’s parties and you could do some adorable umbrella or kite-shaped cookies with this Umbrella Sugar Cookie cutter or with a Diamond Shaped Cookie Cutter for the kites. I mean, how cute are these?
And if you’re baking a cake, or going store bought, your could top your cake with a personalized Mary Poppins cake topper like this:
Or if you want some non-sweet treats, how about red popcorn or these darling Umbrella Cheeses with straws for the handles Kara’s Domestic Life made? These would surely be a huge hit (plus, they’re easy to prepare)!
Mary Poppins Returns Party Activities
A birthday activity is essential at any little girl’s party and luckily, a Mary Poppins theme lends itself to several great craftsy ideas! Why not have your guests decorate their own Mary Poppins hats? You could get child sized bowler hats in red or blue, an assortment of flowers, buttons and ribbons, and let the girls craft the perfect hat!
Or how about a Design Your Own Kite activity? Provide stickers, markers and fun embellishments along with these blank kite kits and you’re all set!
Mary Poppins Returns Party Favors
If the Mary Poppins hats or kites aren’t enough of a party favor for you, why not send your guests home with Mary’s iconic neck ties? We found these adorable Red Polka Dot Bow Ties and Blue & White Striped Bow Ties that are similar to the one’s Mary is featured wearing in the movie trailer!
Or what’s more classic Mary Poppins than a Spoonful of Sugar? Thanking guests with their very own Spoonful of Sugar favor would be a delightful way to end the party. You could make your own chocolate dipped stir spoons and wrap them in some cellophane with a red ribbon and you’re all set!
We hope you’re as excited as we are now to see Mary Poppins Returns when it hits theaters… and that you’re full of inspiration to plan an unforgettable Mary Poppins themed party for your next event! Be sure to Pin this post for later party planning too!
