I feel like my whole life has been leading up to this moment, y’all. I love a themed birthday party. I love Taylor Swift. And I LOVED putting together these Taylor Swift birthday party ideas.
I’ve been a die-hard Swiftie for 17 years, and I’m all the way here for this MOMENT she’s having, on top of her game.
How to Throw a Taylor Swift Birthday Party
Part of why Taylor Swift is so beloved amongst her fans is that she gives us so much of herself. Through her music, her “easter eggs,” her Eras, her tours –she lets us all into a little sliver of her world, and makes us all feel like her best friends.
And all of that makes it REALLY easy to throw a Taylor Swift themed party.
There are so many different theme routes you could take for a Taylor Swift birthday party:
- Eras Tour
- One Specific Era
- Awards Show
- Secret Sessions
- Glitter –all the glitter!
Pick one, mix-and-match them all, make it your own! This is YOUR birthday era, after all. 😉
