Table of Contents
Planning a birthday party for your child should not be a challenge. There are some elements that frequently create some anxiety when parents try to give their child a great party. A simple way of eliminating some of the stress in planning is to throw a theme birthday party incorporating your kid’s favorite character. Gone are the days of the plain birthday cake and party with all of the unique and fun options from which to choose.
A Multitude of Characters Available
A few decades ago, kids did not have the same easy availability of their favorite television and cartoon shows as they do now. In those days, children eagerly awaited Saturday morning to sit in front of the TV and enjoy their favorite show. Now of course that’s not necessary since cable networks are abundant with continual cartoons and programs intended for children. That being said, it’s no wonder that the party supply industry has taken the characters and made them into fabulous party decorations.
Making the Theme Party Extra Fun
An extra fun theme party will include not only character decorations but fun games as well. Most people have played ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’ at one time or another during their childhood, but how about taking the basic idea and working it into the theme of your party? Some creative parents have made their own game using a poster board that was made into the character of choice. ‘Pin the Nose on Elmo’ or ‘Pin the Tail on Tails’ are simple and fun ideas if the theme is Elmo or Sonic the Hedgehog for example.
Birthday Party Rental Ideas
Some very popular ideas for birthday party fun is to rent one of those cool bouncy houses from a local rental store. If the party is being held outside, then a bouncy house will provide lots of entertainment. These days there are even theme bouncy rentals available such as Disney or Nickelodeon characters. Large groups of kids can have fun together with these rentals, and some even include pools and water fun elements. Be sure to rent way in advance to secure your party date.
Theme Birthday Party Cakes
These days, the birthday cake has become the main aspect of the party. There are tons of theme cake pans available to purchase online as well as in hobby stores etc. You can choose your child’s favorite character or toy and create your own cake, or go to your local bakery and order a wonderful cake. They have books with photos of all of the many options they offer. Also, if you would like to serve cupcakes rather than one big cake, there are wonderful cupcake toppers to buy to put on your own cupcakes or order some at your bakery.
Your child’s birthday party can be a wonderful, exciting event when you incorporate his or her favorite character or theme into the fun. Beginning with the invitations, to the decorations and cake and games, the theme can be as elaborate as you wish or simple and sweet. Play ahead and have enough adults on hand to help and the party is sure to be a hit.
