One of the first things you need to decide on when planning a kiddie party is the theme! With so many movies, characters, and stories to choose from, picking a theme gets even more challenging every year. How do you narrow down those ideas? Well, we’ve rounded up some birthday themes great for both boys and girls from parties featured here on Baby and Breakfast. We hope this list helps you out! Go on and check out our suggestions below!
Party among the clouds, moon, and stars in a Celestial-themed celebration! Play with the colors blue and silver for a classic look like Archer’s party or add a little whimsy like Alea with her pink and purple night sky. Add that heavenly feel by decorating your entrance or the stage with clouds, and placing stars on the ceiling. A Celestial theme will certainly make your guests feel like they’re floating in the night sky, and remind them of the times they wished upon a star!
If you’re a family who loves to travel and experience different cultures, then an Around the World theme would be a lot of fun! You can choose one of your favorite cities, just like Karys who had a glamorous Parisian-themed party. You can also follow Christian’s lead and have a party that makes you feel like you’re boarding a first-class flight. This kind of theme will allow you to be absolutely creative in bringing a travel experience to life! You can serve food that is known to that city and decorate your venue with iconic tourist spots like the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe. If you’re going for a feel of flying through the skies, then you can take cues from Christian’s party which had miniature airplanes and hot air balloons. Some other ideas would be designing your invitations like passports or boarding passes and dressing up as flight attendants or pilots! Neat, right?
A classic but still a whole lot of fun for kids and kids at heart! There are many different ways you can interpret an Under the Sea theme. You can go the Disney route or just simply opt for a mermaid and ocean theme. You can take it all the way to a marine adventure by having your party at an aquarium or create a sea experience by how you decorate your venue. Both Atara and Sebastian transformed their venues into the world of the ocean with jellyfish, seaweed, and balloons that look like bubbles! We really love how imaginative these parties are in making you feel like you’re under the sea!
It’s no secret that we Filipinos love celebrations, and our many fiestas are a testament to that! This is your opportunity to bring out all your favorite local dishes and street food like dirty ice cream, lechon, and fishballs. Teach your kids your favorite childhood games, whether that’s piko or patintero, by incorporating them in the program, too! Complete the fiesta experience by placing colorful banderitas all over your venue. For a fun touch, Macci and Maia even had sari-sari stores at their parties! You can definitely have fun with colors and games at a Pinoy Fiesta themed party!
A picnic at the park or a day at the beach? Either one sounds like a fun bonding experience for the family, right? Well, an outdoor themed party is also a great way to share bonding moments with the rest of your friends and relatives. Rome’s beach party had everyone frolicking in the sand, while Mariana created an indoor picnic experience complete with rustic picnic table setups, and snacks in baskets! Rome’s and Mariana’s parties are also showing us two options that can suit different preferences. One option is an all-out beach party where you can breathe in the fresh air, while another is an outdoor experience brought indoors, which is a practical choice given our unpredictable weather. But whichever direction you go, outdoor-themed parties will always be fun and exciting!
Kids are always giddy at the sight of balloons, especially when they take the form of different characters and are in a multitude of colors. Alaina’s party looked absolutely dreamy with soft pink and gold balloons, while Lucas’ celebration was inspired by the blue sky and the wonders of riding a hot air balloon. Using balloons as your main decorative piece can surely result in a cute and adorable looking party!
Do you still remember those stories and rhymes that you made your parents read aloud over and over again? You can bring those classic stories to life once more by turning them into exciting party themes! Luisa’s party was a nostalgic trip down nursery rhymes lane, while Jessu retold the beloved tale of Guess How Much I Love You! Recall some of your favorite children’s books and songs and let your imagination soar. You can have Humpty-Dumpty inspired desserts or you can even try to copy the setting of the story through your venue styling.
Who doesn’t love a little magic at their party? Make your guests feel like they’re stepping into an enchanted forest or the whimsical woodlands by setting up your venue with colorful trees, flowers, and animal friends! Chris and Chase are giving inspiration for boy parties with their woodland-themed celebration complete with tents, bears, and foxes! Meanwhile, Cayenne’s party is a little girl’s dream come true with all the fairy lights and paper butterflies.
Another way to have a memorable party is by creating a colorful, tropical paradise. Have fun with abundant arrangements of flowers and figures of parrots and flamingos like Harper. This darling celebrant also made sure to have a delectable grazing table which added to the paradise feel of her event! You can also choose your favorite tropical elements for a fun luau such as pineapple, tiki masks, and palm trees just like Bradley. His party also made use of surfboards and a Polynesian theme. So, if you want a feast for the eyes, go for a tropical party!
Your favorite cartoon and video game characters can also be great party themes! Nintendo fans out there are going to love a Super Mario-themed party! Go all out by having figurines of your favorite Super Mario characters and decorative game details all over the venue just like Curt. He even dressed up as Mario!
For a theme that can strike a good balance for both boys and girls, especially for joint celebrations of brother and sister, the Little Twin Stars theme is a fun way to go. Sam and Caleb had the cutest party ever using the pastel pink and blue color palette of the Little Twin Stars and the characters themselves all throughout the decorations up to the desserts!
