Parties are a lot of fun, and children always have a blast with their friends and playmates during these occasions. Parents tend to enjoy it a lot too, especially when they don’t have to organize the party. After all, party planning can be a bit stressful and time-consuming. Additionally, you’ll be a few hundred dollars lighter if you’re catering to guests and the party is complete with decorations, food, and entertainment.
If you’re gonna have a party, you may as well go all the way, right? Don’t just slap mismatched balloons and a cake together and call it a birthday party. You can do better. In fact, you can fully utilize whatever budget you have with meticulous advance planning.
Here are some stylish birthday-party inspirations for your daughter.
There’s a lot to love about unicorns, and what most little girls love about them is that the fact that unicorns are mostly depicted as ponies with a majestical forehead horn and are standing in front of a rainbow backdrop. They happen to also be girly, which makes it a perfect birthday theme if your daughter is still on the fence as to what decors she wants for her party.
Unlike character-specific themes, rainbow-unicorn themes are a lot cheaper, and the merch, including party favor boxes, dinner plates, cups, and lunch napkins, are fairly easy to find and put together.
Pokémon Party Bonanza
With the recent release of Detective Pikachu, Pokémon has become more popular than ever, especially among younger children. Both boys and girls love the fun-loving pocket monsters, and if your little girl wants to have a Pokémon-themed party, who are you to say no? It’s an inclusive party where they can pick any Pokémon they want. The most popular ones are the starter monsters, including Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander.
Stylish and empowering, Wonder Woman is a positive role model whom girls should emulate. Thanks to the recent flick from DC Universe, Wonder Woman is making waves as a warrior woman and as a popular birthday theme for both boys and girls.
The great thing about this character is that she’s iconic and her simple colors of red, blue, and gold are so easy to copy, so if you want to do DIY party favors, costumes, or crafts, you can do so with little to no effort at all.
Think of it as a generic version of the Disney princesses Snow White and Aurora. This theme is more centered on the different adorable woodland animals, like squirrels, owls, foxes, rabbits, and deer, to name a few.
In line with the theme, it would be better fitting if the party is held in a grassy venue outdoors, a park, or near the forest. If not, you can always make or buy matching decors like DIY trees, stumps, flowers, and many more.
A luau is ideal if you live near the sea because you don’t have to decorate as much when you have the real thing. For the tropical setting, you’ll need to tell your guests to come in Hawaiian shirts, sundresses, khaki shorts, capri pants, or generally comfortable clothes. To make the party more inviting, make some leis or party wreaths to put on your guests when they enter the venue.
The food and entertainment should be in theme too, so add in coconuts, a flower cake for your daughter’s cake, and even grass skirts. You can also go straight through with a Moana theme as well.
Stylish doesn’t mean expensive, and if you want to give your daughter a birthday party that she’ll love, go ask her for advice on what she really wants. While not everyone has the budget to hire professionals to organize and cater for the party, you can always DIY some projects or ask help from relatives and friends. The most important thing is to find a balance between overspending and making your little girl feel special on her happy day.
