When I was I little girl I DEVOURED the Nancy Drew Mystery Collections! There was something about that yellow cover and wonderfully crafted mysteries that made my 10 year old heart pitter patter! I wish I would have thought to have a Nancy Drew Party! How fun to have all your friends over to solve a mystery and eat cake! I can think of nothing better!
If you have a daughter that loves Nancy Drew and are thinking of throwing her a Nancy Drew Party, I’ve put together some of the BEST Nancy Drew Party Ideas on the web. Here’s what I’ve found!!
It probably comes as no surprise, but the first thing I recommend when throwing ANY party is USE.ALL.THE.PRINTABLES! I actually have two Nancy Drew Printable Collections that I just love. One is just black and yellow while the other is grey and yellow! One is a bit more modern while the other Nancy Drew Birthday collection is more vintage!
This is such a fun, whimsical take on a Nancy Drew Party! It’s colorful (which I wouldn’t expect) and uses a pop of gold that doesn’t seem to go with the classic Nancy Drew mustard yelllow, but it TOTALLY does here.
I love the subtle hints to Nancy Drew books like the vintage racket on the wall, numerous ribbons and the globe on the desk. All the details are perfectly whimsical!
This Nancy Drew Birthday Celebration is a collaboration I did with The Party Teacher years ago! She is SO, SO talented and actually has a complete party planning guide to recreate this exact Nancy Drew Party.
Her party was incredibly detailed and fabulous! This is the dessert table from her celebration and I love her use of my printable Happy Birthday printable banner, drink labels and 5X7 party signs.
I found this party on Country Living and I’m absolutely OBSESSED! Those clocks! This party was styled for a Halloween celebration, but I think it’s perfect for a little girls birthday party. Especially if it revolves around The Old Clock (I believe that’s the first book in the series) book.
The vintage clocks are magical, but so are the rustic keys, 60’s-style suitcases and milk glass vases.
I reviewed LOTS of Nancy Drew celebrations and saw a ton of different Nancy Drew Party Favor Ideas. These party favors were my favorite of the bunch. Not only because they are simple, but because they are inexpensive and perfectly tie in with the detective theme.
I’m not sure what’s inside, but the wrapping is perfect! I love the two-toned patterned fabric, the stark white boxes and the vintage keys!
This party was thrown by my good friend Tammy and it might be my favorite of the bunch. She is an INCREDIBLE stylist and creator. I’m pretty obsessed with everything she does.
This party actually inspired my more modern Nancy Drew Printable Collection. I really encourage you to click through and see this whole party because it’s fantastic! She has so many great ideas and pictures of her entire celebration!
This is a close-up of the detective party cake styled in The Party Teacher’s dessert table. There are so many fantastic layers that I love: the DIY cake topper, the black die cut under the cake and then the fantastic cake platter! It all creates the perfect focal point.
I know I’ve show the Dessert Table from The Party Teacher’s party, but I haven’t shown the decorations. Can you say WOW!?! The milk glass vases, old fashioned candelabra, and fringe garland is EVERYTHING!
I’ve pulled these both of these cupcakes from two different parties! Both are great options for party favors and desserts! They use fondant and are great and pulling in the detective theme.
More decoration ideas from The Party Teacher! Can you tell I’m obsessed with her? Here’s some photos of her darling garland, the centerpieces and her tables.
