Willy Wonka Party Ideas

A Willy Wonka party can be fun for kids and adults alike. Use youngsters to portray Oompa Loompas and an adult dressed as Willy Wonka to welcome party goers to your home. You may fashion the ideas after the original or the most recent movie with Johnny Depp. Ensure you have plenty of chocolate, bubblegum and gobstoppers for exciting party games.


Purchase chocolate bars to be given out as the invitation. Wrap the chocolate bars with gold-coloured paper that includes the birthday invitation message. Use verbiage such as--"You are the lucky finder of the golden ticket! You are invited to celebrate (child's name) birthday at Charlie's Chocolate Factory." Ensure that the invitation also includes vital information, such as the time, date and location. Wrap the gold invitation in silver paper to be unwrapped by the party invitees.

Arrival of Guests

Upon arrival, have outdoor games prepared for the children until all guests arrive. Ask a male adult to dress as Willy Wonka to invite the children into the party. As each child enters the party, have the child's birthday contract on the wall to be signed by each guest, just like the contract the children in the movie signed upon entrance to the Chocolate Factory.


Hold a bubblegum blowing contest in honour of Violet Beauregarde--the avid gum chewer who chewed on the dinner gum and blew up like a blueberry. Hide gobstoppers throughout the party area and the guest who finds the most wins a prize--this can be an ongoing game for the party's duration. Let the kids drink fizzy drinks and have a burping contest. Just for fun, give the guests bottles of bubbles to represent the bubble room.


Set up a chocolate fountain so the guests may dip different kinds of fruit in the fountain. Lay out mini chocolate bars and provide fizzy fruit punch by combining fruit punch with 2 parts ginger ale. If you bake the cake, ensure it is full of colour by decorating it with lollipops and candy canes. Create a river of chocolate by carving out a stream through the middle of the cake and filling it with chocolate pudding or melted dark chocolate. Serve peanuts in a candy dish.
