3 Unique Party Ideas When Booking a Birthday Party Magician

A birthday party magician doesn't just have to be for Children. Although a magician is a popular children's party idea, why not consider booking a magician for an adult or teen's birthday. It's a unique birthday idea that will surprise your guests and make sure they remember the party for a long time as most people haven't seen a close-up magician in person.

Modern magic isn't the cheesy magic you may be used to. In fact modern close-up magic is incredibly classy and performed in your hands, designed for adults (that's not to say 'adult material'). Here are three ways in which a close-up magician or mind reader could be used at your event. 

3 Birthday Party Magician Ideas

  1. An Intimate Show for your Closest Friends - Are you having just a few friends over for a intimate dinner? Many magicians offer a close-up set that can usually can range up to 30 minutes for guests of up to 15-20 people. This is a really intimate show in which everyone gets involved and your guests will walk away with something they'll remember for a long time to come.
  2. A strolling magician - If having a larger event with many extended friends and family, a party mind reader or magician can make for a nice ice-breaker as well as a really entertaining way for guests to pass the time whilst they wait to speak with you. If you're busy talking with all your friends it can take some time to see everyone, and a magician can help that time fly by. 
  3. Many magicians will offer a special effect for the person who's birthday it is. I know that I perform an effect that leaves them with a surprising and memorable present and card that often leaves the recipient in a state of awe. If booking on behalf of the birthday person, be sure to see if the party magician provides this kind of service and surprise them!
