Michael Jackson Party Supplies and Ideas

michael jackson birthday party
With the recent passing of Michael Jackson there are a lot of people out there who are wanting to have either a Tribute Party or a Michael Jackson Birthday Party Theme.  I have been asked if I could put together some ideas on how to make this happen.  Being there are no official Michael Jackson Party Supplies at this time it is going to take some creativity and that is where I come in.  So I have done some research and I am going to share some of the things I have found that will help you put this together or at the very least steer you in the right direction.  I would also like to mention that I was a big MJ fan myself growing up to his music and having him part of my childhood memories. I recently wrote my own tribute to the King of Pop which can be found here: 10 Things I will always remember about Michael Jackson.  Feel free to stop by and read it and see if you share some of the same memories. Now on to the party planing.

michael jackson party invitations

I have found some great Michael Jackson Party Invitationson Ebay with one of my favorite designs you see pictured here to your right from seller glitterpartygoods. The invite can be personalized with all your party information and they have a cool glittery effect . There are other design choices also available.

It gets better than that – this seller also sells Michael Jackson Party Hats, Table Decor, Blowers, Stickers, Banner, Shirts and more. It is like hitting the Michael Jackson Party Jackpot. With using this package you can just add in some solid colored party ware like your plates, cups and tablecloth and you have a great look going. This is the closest I have found to a complete Michael Jackson Party Package and I think it is great. All you need to add in is some solid colored Plates, Cups and Tablecloth and you are set.

When I think of how to decorate for this party theme I think that Michael Jackson was very elaborate with his taste – He liked things that were Gold, Silver, Sparkly and ok sometimes gaudy. So some other ideas you can do for your Party Goods is go with a Black and White Theme or Red, Black and White makes me think of  the Beat It Jacket. Then add in some touches of Golds, Silvers and things that sparkle like Rhinestones and Metallic Confetti and Streamers.

music note balloons

For additional decorations you can add  some Musical Note Balloonsbeing it is all about the music. Of course You would also want to hang some Michael Jackson Posters on the walls and there are plenty of those available and if you are a fan you may even have them already in your home. So use what you have when you can.

michael jackson hollywood star

Being Michael Jackson also had a Hollywood Star on the walk of fame you can create one with the Star Peel N Place which resembles a Hollywood Star and you can add in any name you want. It measures approx. 2″ wide x 15″ high and is re positionable and can be placed on any smooth surface. In addition to this you can add some Gold Record Clings which are along the same lines, but just Gold Records you can stick on the walls. I think you get the idea of how you can decorate for this party theme and you can also look at all the Party Theme Packages that have to do with Hollywood, Music and Dancing and see if there is pattern that you think would work also.

For your games and activities of course you will want to have some Michael Jackson Music playing and have some Dancing time. One thing you can do is teach the kids some of the King of Pops famous dance moves. Teach them the Moonwalk – and if you do not know how to do it find someone who does. Contact some local Dance Studios and see if anyone is available to come to the party that knows some of Michael Jackson’s dance steps. The kids would absolutely love this. You can also find some video tutorials on You Tube showing how it is done and others showing his signature moves – so you can use this as back up too.

Fedora Hat and Sequin Glove

If you are able to – get each guest a Black Fedora Hat and a White Sequin Glove to wear just like Michael did, these can also double as your party favors and would make a great photo opportunity for a great group shot. You can even add in some Dark Sunglasses to polish off the look.

michael jackson party game

Another great find is this Michael Jackson Bingo Game from Fon Universe. If you can match pictures you can play! For an added challenge, each card has 3 clues. Read the clues and let the players figure out which MJ album it is on their card and mark it off. This game is for all ages.  This is a perfect game for this party theme and I think everyone will have playing it.

Michael Jackson Videos on DVD

Did you know there is a DVD that features Michael Jackson’s 10 Best Videos? Yes there is and it is called; Michael Jackson – Video Greatest Hits and this would be perfect to have playing at the party. It features 10 of Michael Jackson’s greatest video hits, including “Billie Jean,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Black or White,” “Rock With You” and others plus some unseen and uncut footage. Perfect to get the guests dancing and a introduction to some great history for those who have never seen them before.

Monkey Pinata

Have a Pinata at the party – Being Michael Jackson loved chimpanzees you can opt to have a Monkey Pinata. Or  you can make your own Pinata in the shape of a Record, Spray paint it gold and add your favorite album information to the middle.  You can even take cut out pictures of Michael Jackson and just add them onto a round basic Pinata and create your very own look.  See my post on How to make a Pinata for recipe and directions.

Michael Jackson Birthday Cake

So how do you make a Michael Jackson cake? Well I have seen many great designs, but the easiest way is using the Michael Jackson Edible Cake Images available. There are many design choices and you have the ability to personalize them.  You can also do a Google image search for Michael Jackson Cakes and be inspired by some of the great cakes others have made. On of my favorites is the Sequin Glove cakes, but the edible images are much easier for me.

sequin glove cookie

For your party favors you can send the kids home with the Fedora Hats and Sequin Gloves or you can find other Michael Jackson related items like Stickers, Buttons, Posters etc…  Or even better send the guests home with White Sequin Glove Cookies. To do this you will need a Hand Cookie Cutter, Bake your cookies, Frost them white and then decorate them with Silver Dragees or SILVER SPARKLY EDIBLE Sanding Sugar Sprinklesto look like sequins. Wrap them in clear bags, tie a ribbon and add your Thank You Tag and you have a creative and perfect ending everyone will enjoy.

I hope I was able to provide you with some good ideas for your party and maybe I helped get your creative juices flowing if this is a theme you are thinking of doing.  Again it is not easy being there is no official merchandise out there, but if I find any in the near future they will listed here. So good luck, have fun and think MUSIC. I would like to end this post with a picture of Michael Jackson and his kids Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket celebrating a Birthday Party.

I would also like to add that I recently saw Michael Jackson’s “This is It” Movie in the theater and I loved it. You can read my movie review here: What I thought of the Michael Jackson Movie.  The movie is now available on DVD so it would be a great thing to having playing during the party.

    Thanks for all the great idea starters! We just had a Michael Jackson themed birthday party for our 9 year old daughter and had a great time! Some cool ideas that someone might like to use for a party of this nature are playing a variation of the “hot potato” game using the song Beat It. The kids used a microphone to pass around while the song played. When the music stopped, the one with the mic had to be out and got a set of rhythm sticks that they kept the “BEAT” with until everyone was out playing the beat with the sticks along to the music minus the winner! We also played a Limbo game with the song “Shake Your Body Down To The Ground” and the kids limboed while shaking their bodies lower and lower to the ground! A really cool thing we also did was take MJ’s song, Heal the World, and played the video on a big screen and then had the kids make hygiene kits to give to a national charity who then took them to give to victims of the earthquake in Haiti. We played another game (4 Corners) using more music and MJ posters as the corner spot identification, had a one of a kind cake made decorated with Michael Jackson’s hat and glove on the cake top. Lots of fun music party decorations to add to the posters and music to round off the event! Made a big hit with the parents too who got into singing and dancing with the music of their teens or childhood!

  8. Thanks so much for sharing your party details and I must say you had some very creative ideas – I bet it was a party everyone is going to remember for sure.

    I am currently planning my 3 year old daughters bday party mj theme!
    Black tablecloths, red napkins, glittery plasticware, silver cups and a plastic fedora at each setting. We loaded the ultimate play list and have the Michael Jackson wii game all set up! We are sending each kid home with a bag of black and red Oreos with a red tag that says we were “thrilled” you could come along with a red, black and white balloon!
    We are also having a photo cake made at the supermarket using the cover of the thriller cd. I threw this party together in less than a week and I’m sure will be a hit! Thx for all the great ideas!
