It’s time to go out on a party-throwing limb this year and do something new for your kid’s birthday. Planning for a child’s birthday party allows for your creative side to show, which can lead to several fabulous party themes. We’ve put together a few popular themes for your child’s birthday party.
Having a mermaid theme is something that can be easy to decorate and plan for. There are numerous directions you can take with this theme when it comes to decorating – or even the cake and food! Decorations can range from making jellyfish lanterns that blow in the wind, to hanging fish net everywhere, and even having starfish and clams spread throughout the tables. As far as the food and drinks, a great snack could include goldfish or whale crackers and clam cookies (lemon cookies with icing and a chocolate pearl inside).
Star Wars is something that has been around for years and has become an extremely popular party theme for children nowadays. Sticking with the known color palette of royal blue, black, white, and grey will help complete the look you’re hoping for. To add some fun, provide arriving guests with a Jedi robe and lightsaber. Another idea would be to create customized birthday shirts with each Jedi’s name on it. Having the kids wear matching shirts will get them excited about the party and make for a great photo op. Decorating a drink dispenser as R2D2 or having a Darth Vader piñata will help bring your theme to life as well!
What child doesn’t love a good carnival with sweet treats and fun games? A backyard carnival themed birthday party is something fun for everyone, regardless of age or gender! Customizing shirts that say “Ringmaster” or “The Main Attraction” with each guest’s name on it can be something for them to look forward to when arriving to the party. When it comes to entertainment and fun activities to incorporate, consider having a face painter, clown or making balloon animals. Getting a popcorn machine, having plenty of candy, funnel cakes or cotton candy are just a few of the many snacks you could provide as well!
