These tips for throwing a Goddess Party are both practical and inspirational! They’re inspired by a quotation from Madonna, who is a Goddess of authenticity, self-confidence, and self-identity.
My first tip on how to throw a Goddess party is to wear a goddess costume, such as the Love Goddess Costume. Why? To get into the groove of being a goddess, to express yourself, and to feel beautiful.
“I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams,” said Madonna. Who can argue with doing what you believe in and going after your dreams? And the more successful women (Goddesses) you surround yourself with, the more likely you’ll get what you want out of life – whether you want a college degree or freedom from depression.
And that’s what a Goddess party is all about: connecting with women to energize your mind, body, and soul. These tips for throwing a Goddess party will give you ideas.

1. Invite women to dress like Goddesses
Encourage the women you invite to wear clothes that make them feel authentic, real, and Goddess-like. Stress that they don’t have to wear ornate costumes; Goddesses need only adorn themselves with clothes that make them feel happy, spirited, encouraged, or soulful. Feather boas, faux-fur purses, pink cowgirl boots, glittery tiara – anything and everything goes at a Goddess party!
2. Don’t listen to or feel the music; be the music
The last Goddess party I attended involved a musical saw, drums, a guitar, the spoons, a musical egg, and “tap” boots (one Goddess made music by drumming the heel of her boots on the ground). Encourage your friends to bring whatever instruments they have – even if it’s a recorder from their elementary school days or a couple of spoons from the kitchen drawer. You don’t have to sing like Madonna to be the music!
3. Move your Goddess bodies
If you’re throwing a party to celebrate women, consider a short physical activity. For instance, the last Goddess party I went to had a Nia lesson, which was not only fun and invigorating, it taught us a new way to move our bodies. Consider getting a fellow Goddess to lead a short belly dance, hip-hop, or yoga lesson. Anything goes!
4. Invite your Goddesses to share
“Ode to the Female Period” was a deep-yet-funny poem read by a writer at the Goddess party I went to. I admired her writing skills, and also her courage and ease at reading in public. Some women balk at being so vulnerable – I know I do. If you’re throwing a Goddess party, consider asking your friends to bring something that is encouraging, positive, and uplifting to women.
Another way to share is to organize a “gifting circle”, which was described by a reader in the comments section below. A similar idea is a white elephant gift exchange – read 14 White Elephant Gift Ideas for Parties for tips.
5. Explore other worlds
One of the Goddesses read our Tarot cards at the party I attended. A spiritual or soulful activity can connect the group as a whole (even with individual readings) and solidify individual hopes and dreams. Not every Goddess has to have her cards, tea leaves, or palm read – but it can be interesting to explore those worlds!
The foundation of any Goddess party is acceptance of self, others, and life.
