Masquerade Party Ideas

Masquerade Invitation Ideas
Send out blank masks with the party details attached.  Tell guests on the invitation to decorate the masks with feathers, glitter and paint and wear the masks when they arrive at the party.   give them the option of buying or making their own mask.  And tell them there will be a contest to see which guest is not recognized for the longest time during the party. 

Give out prizes for the best or most elaborate masquerade masks.

Buy or make pretty invitations from pretty scrapbook paper that has a mask pattern.

Masquerade Party Decoration Ideas
Decorate the Masquerade party with vivid colors highlighted with black or silver.  Decorate with gold candles, candelabras and serving trays.  

Hang strings of white lights around the ceiling and walls and intertwined around the decorations on the tables.  Place small topiary's on the tables and decorate with small colorful masks.  Hang mask cut outs from the ceiling with fishing line or curling ribbon.

Activities for a Masquerade Party
Decorate Masks
Set up a table with plain masks and let the party guests decorate their own mask.  Give them choices of different colors of sequins, rhinestones, feathers and lace. 

Mystery Dinner
Serve a mystery dinner where guests don't know what they have ordered until it is brought to them.  A really fun game and dinner ideas all in one.  See our
mystery dinner page for menu and directions.


Masquerade Party Games

Guess Who
If guests come to the Masquerade birthday party with their masks take pictures as they enter and then have a guessing game to see who can guess the identity of the most party guests.

Celebrity Who's Who
Before the birthday party select several pictures of celebrities from magazines.  Make small masquerade style masks for them from scrapbook or construction paper and glue to their faces.  Give guests paper and pencils and ask them how many of the celebrities they can identify.  This can also be played as an icebreaker game when guests are arriving. 

Masquerade Ball
Create a designated dancing area for the kids and decorate it with a disco ball, strings of lights and/or lots of blown up balloons that are placed on the floor for party guests to dance through.  Let the kids freestyle dance or teach them some new dances (look on YouTube for dancing videos) like line dancing or some old fashioned ball room dancing.
