The apple doesn't fall far from the tree as they say but we all know people can change, and not just from a magic spell. Are you rotten to the core? Nah…we know you’re not but you’ll feel like chillin’ with a villain when you host a Disney Descendants party! Gather all your best sidekicks together to party like an Auradon Prep alum. Cast an invitation spell and watch the RSVPs magically appear. Check out all of our enchanting tips to throw the perfect Disney Descendants birthday party.

Descendants Party Invitations

Show your true friendship colors when you include a friendship bracelet with your invitation. The kit includes everything you need to make 12 bracelets. Three different pattern instructions are included so you can have fun mixing up the styles and colors.

Announce the party details with personalized invitations, or let Mal do the talking.

Descendants Party Decorations

Create the feeling of being in a castle by using a Medieval stone wall backdrop and purple plastic covers as curtains. You can make an enchanted mirror using a craft store frame spray painted black. Spray thick cardstock silver to give it a mirrored effect.

Can’t find the piñata you need to fit your theme? No problem! Craft your own Mal Dragon piñata using a dragon piñata, spray paint, and some glitter.

It wouldn’t be a Descendants party without Uma crashing it so bring a bit of Uma to your party too. You can make tentacles by cutting circles out of a plastic table cover and then cut a spiral out of them. Once you separate the layers you’ll have strips of “tentacles”.

Set the table in true Auradon style and your favorite characters will be joining you for cake! Get everything you need to set the table with the Ultimate Descendants Party Tableware Kit or set the table a la carte by browsing the Descendants Tableware page.

Descendants Party Food Ideas

Prepare the meal and snacks based off characters from the movie. Give the food clever names and display the dishes at a buffet table with personalized labels.

  • Mal – purple and green milkshakes
  • Evie – candy apples
  • Carlos – store bought cupcakes with chocolate chips in the frosting
  • Jay – snake cookies
  • Uma – cookies with gummy octopus
  • Don’t forget the kids at Auradon Prep! Make a batch of chocolate popcorn in the colors of the school…blue and yellow.

Descendants Party Activities



Photo Booth Create a great photo opp with a giant Mal stand up! Guests will have fun taking their picture next to her especially if your guests come dressed up as their favorite Descendants Character costume.

Guess the Guest: Pin the name of a Descendants character on the back of each guest when they arrive. Party goers can ask one question to each guest until they correctly guess who they are!

Musical Chairs: Play musical chairs using music from the movie like, “It’s Going Down”, “Rotten to the Core”, “Chillin’ Like a Villain”, and “Evil Like Me”.

Keep Away: Split your guests into two teams, Team Auradon & Team Isle, and play a game of keep away with Fairy Godmother’s wand. Team Auradon has to work together to keep Team Isle from getting it!

Descendants Party Favors

Send your guests home with treats representing some of the birthday child’s favorite characters. Here are some color options:

  • Mal – purple
  • Evie – royal blue
  • Jay – red
