The new show all about Wednesday Addams has taken Netflix by storm. In this new adaption of the classic gothic character you really get to know Wednesday as a person and many people relate to her.

Here is a step by step guide to hosting a Wednesday birthday party with ease.
Hosting a Wednesday Addams birthday party can be a fun and unique way to celebrate a special occasion. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you plan the perfect Wednesday Addams party:
Step 1: Choose the Venue
Choose a venue that suits the Wednesday Addams theme, such as a dark and moody space like a Gothic mansion or a spooky forest. Alternatively, you can transform your own space with black and white decorations, cobwebs, and eerie lighting.
Step 2: Invitations
Design invitations that match the Wednesday Addams theme, with a black and white color scheme and eerie fonts. Encourage guests to dress up in their best Wednesday Addams-inspired outfits, such as black dresses, white collars, and dark tights.
The best place to go for themed invitations is ETSY. They have a fabulous selectin of Wednesday party invitations. Here’s a small example:
Step 3: Decorations
Decorate your party space with plenty of black and white decorations, such as spiderwebs, bats, and creepy dolls. Use black and white streamers, balloons, and tablecloths to create a cohesive look. You can also add some personal touches, like a “Happy Birthday” banner with Wednesday Addams’ face on it.
Finding Wednesday party decorations can be a bit difficult since this is such a new show but thankfully we were able to curate a list of decor that will help you set the mood for your party with ease.
The party kits from Amazon are always a great spot to start when it comes to decorating any party and they already have a fantastic selection of Wednesday party kits like this one that include an array of items to help you set the tone.

Balloons are always a good idea. Something about balloons makes everything more festive so imagine my delight when I found these heart-shaped Wednesday balloons on ETSY.
Step 4: Food and Drinks
Serve creepy yet delicious treats like black cupcakes, spiderweb cookies, and “poison” cocktails. You can also offer some traditional Halloween candies like candy corn and pumpkin-shaped chocolates. Consider setting up a candy bar with jars of different treats for guests to fill up their bags.
