Planning a birthday party for your little girl gives you the chance to get creative and go all out on a theme. There are dozens of girls’ birthday party themes to consider, so we focused on the latest trends to help you cut through the clutter and create a magical event that she will never forget.
Party Theme Idea #1: Ice Cream Social
Create a sundae buffet to complement the warm weather. Simply gather different flavors of ice cream, cones, hot fudge, whipped cream, sprinkles, candies and whatever else you think will be perfect for your ice cream bar. You can use cute dishes to hold the toppings and provide stylish bowls for the ice cream. The supplies are relatively inexpensive and the kids will love making their own ice cream concoctions.
Party Theme Idea #2: Spa Day
Every little girl likes to pretend to be all grown up, so why not incorporate into her birthday party? A spa party is a great way to make her feel pampered and pretty. Create a pretty dessert table for the little ladies equipped with cupcakes, cookies, and other sweet treats and beverages. To go along with the theme, you can provide spa robes for each guest to feel like it’s a real spa day. You can also set up a station for manicures, pedicures, and facials to truly capture what a day at the spa is like.
Party Theme Idea #3: Glamping
Give your little girl the camping experience with a twist of the glamorous. It’s the perfect way to have some outdoor fun and let her be a girly-girl all at once. You can use lanterns and bark as décor. For treats combine traditional camping snacks with some glam snacks too. For example, your snack bar can include s’mores, macaroons, cake, trail mix and anything else you think is fun. If weather permits, the kids can actually camp outside. If not, set up a mock campsite inside your house.
Party Theme Idea #4: Sweet Tooth
Her birthday is the one day a year you are probably letting her have some extra sweet treats. Go all out and make it the theme of the party. Give it an elegant feel by using floral decorations and placing all of the treats on different platters and dessert towers. Offer cake, cookies, brownies, macaroons, ice cream, candy and anything sweet. You may also consider setting up a fancy table for all of the girls to sit and enjoy their desserts like royalty.
Party Theme Idea #5: Rock Star
Celebrate her inner rock star! Give each guest a feather boa and toy microphone to have them feeling like stars from the start. You can also find or make cookies in the shape of guitars and microphones and have different jars of rock candy suckers and pop rocks set out as edible décor. The rock star theme truly gives you the chance to go over-the-top with feather boas, zebra print, and anything else that will make her feel like a diva for the day. “Amp” up the celebration by adding a karaoke element to the day and incorporate a singing competition for added fun.
If you are still having trouble deciding, consider taking all of the top theme choices you like to your little girl and letting her choose which one seems like the most fun for her. It’s a great way to ensure that her birthday party is all she wants it to be and more. Keep in mind, you don’t have to plan this party all by yourself.
