A child’s birthday is a momentous occasion and a time for celebration. After all, your child is growing up and slowly becoming a young adult, and although that could be a scary thought for you, watching your child grow is also a wonderful experience. Therefore, you may wish to throw your child an unforgettable birthday party – one that they will never forget and cherish for many years to come. The only issue is deciding which theme you should settle on.
Of course, you may wish to speak with your child so that they can have the overall say (after all, it is their birthday), but why not come up with a few ideas beforehand so that you can pitch them to your child? Here is a list of fun ideas for your child’s upcoming birthday party.
- Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland makes a great theme for a party because it allows you to decorate the area in wonderful disarray. For instance, you can replicate the Mad Hatter’s tea party and have funny signs that say, ‘Eat Me’ and ‘Drink Me’ around the refreshments. You could also go one step further and request that people attend in fancy dress! This party theme works well for older children, around the ages of 17+. This is because you could incorporate teapots and teacups. For literature lovers, this is a wonderful party idea.
- Magical Fairyland
Does your child love to be imaginative and anything that resembles a magical fairyland? If so, there is a lot of potential when it comes to planning a party themed around a fairyland and fairy-tale! For starters, does your child love unicorns? If so, you could plan a unicorn themed party. This could include unicorn figures, unicorn themed food and drink, and even unicorn themed clothing. Finding unicorn themed accessories, clothing and toys is relatively easy as there are online stores like Finding Unicorns that specialise in unicorn specific clothing and toys.
- Comic Books
Does your child love comic books, especially those in the Marvel and DC universe? If so, you may wish to host a birthday party that revolves around your child’s favourite comic book and characters. Firstly, you will want to ask them which comic books are their favourite. Once you know, it’s time to decorate. There are many amazing comic book ideas you could include. You could have comic book themed food and drink, such as a comic book inspired cake and cookies. You could also have comic book art hanging around the party area and even ask everyone who is attending to dress up as their favourite characters.
If you want to surprise your child, remember that there are a few comic book characters that are a firm favourite. These are Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Captain America but also Wolverine and Wonder Woman.
Your child’s birthday party is a momentous occasion, so be sure to plan a party they are unlikely to forget any time soon. The aforementioned tips are only a few ideas. You could always throw a jungle, cinema, or circus themed party instead!
