Birthday Ideas for Kids

Themed Birthdays, Games, and Ideas

Whether it’s a child’s first birthday, double digits, the big 13, sweet 16 birthday party or their grand entrance into adulthood at age 18, birthday ideas for kids are fun and easy to implement, when you have the right party decoration supplies.  Kids’ birthdays are a blast to celebrate at any age; they can be simple or elaborate, reserved for family, dedicated to friends or both. Whether you’re hosting or attending a kids’ birthday party, the idea is to relax, have fun, and play a few party games. Here are some great birthday ideas for kids to help you do just that.

Barbeque at the Park:  No need to worry about the wind factor, when you use inflatable coolers to anchor all those festive party decorations. Park parties are fun and easy to enjoy, because everyone can spread out and explore the surrounding area. Cook up some fabulous food on the grill, and this is one kids’ birthday party that is sure to be a hit.

Scavenger Hunt Party: Depending on the age of the birthday boy or girl, this particular party can get rather innovative, creative and adventuresome. Pre-planning a scavenger hunt birthday party is required. Encourage guests to get excited with anticipation, by sending out party invitations that trigger curiosity and tempt them with the challenge.

Vintage Birthday Party: Remember the days of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, candy guessing jars, wheel barrow and three-legged races, and hands free cake and ice cream eating contests? Talk about a good time, as well as a chance to get away from texting and computer games for a while! It doesn’t take much to make this kids’ birthday party a huge success. Decorate with streamers, balloons and party tableware. Then let the kids (and adults) enjoy their fun!

Brainstorm more exciting kids party ideas and start planning your child’s birthday party fun today with this extensive list of party themes.

Birthday Party Ideas for Men

Birthday parties for women are pretty easy. Find some pink stuff, anything shiny, and surround her with her best friends and favorite family members and she’ll remember it for a lifetime. Women love parties and love being thought of. For men, it can be a bit more difficult. Believe it or not, there are lots of ideas and decorations for a manly birthday celebration.

A Sports Celebration

Most men are crazy about their sports teams. Who cares if the NFL season is over? You can guarantee that the NFL fan in your house hasn’t stopped thinking about his favorite teams just because it isn’t football season at the moment. Make the birthday man feel like an all-star with the NFL Party Zone Kin-N-Kaboodle.

The official NFL licensed party pack includes plates, napkins, cups, invitations, cutlery, balloons, a table cover and curling ribbon. Want to really impress the birthday man and his friends? Go for the deluxe kit- it includes everything listed above plus a banner, a football balloon, candles, and blue and red streamers.

If the guy loves football, he’s probably a big competitor. Set up a flick football game on one of your tables and watch it bring out the kid in the birthday man. It will be a birthday celebration he won’t soon forget.

Military Mania

Whether the birthday man is in the military or not, this party idea will have him feeling like a hero.

The American Heroes Kit-N-Kaboodle pack can get you started with plates, napkins, cutlery, balloons, cups, invitations and curling ribbon. But don’t stop there! Make his cake unforgettable with these camouflage chunky candles.

You might want to have a television set up somewhere at the party showing his favorite war movies. It will give guests something to do and add to the military atmosphere you’re trying to create.

If you’re having trouble finding the perfect gift for the birthday hero, think about a day of paintball, or some time at the shooting range. The gift will mean more if it goes with the theme of the party.

Viva Las Vegas

Men love Vegas, but if you can’t afford to send the birthday boy to Sin City, you can bring the fun to him with a casino-themed birthday bash!

You will naturally want to have tables set up for poker and blackjack. Make the event extra special with some personalized poker chips. Not only will they be fun the night of the party, but years down the road when he’s playing poker with friends.

Hang some casino ceiling danglers to set the scene, and use anything red and black to decorate. If the birthday man is also an Elvis fan, throw in some Elvis decorations as well.

Birthday Ideas for Women

She Deserves the Best Birthday

You know her. She’s the one who keeps it all together, when everything seems to be falling apart. The same woman, who charms you with her smile, energizes you with her personality and captures you with her heart. This is the lady who makes everyone else’s birthday magical and special. It’s her turn now, and there’ll be no holding back, when you consider all the neat birthday ideas for women and theme party supplies, readily available and at your fingertips.

Before you do anything else, remember that this birthday needs to be centered on your guest of honor, taking into account all those intimate little details, right down to the party invitations and decorations, that will make this day special for any women’s birthday. Consider what makes her so amazing, as a unique and wonderful person, not because of all the things she does for you. It’s easy to spoil her, when you know what makes her tick, and can incorporate an array of personalized products into her very special event.

Now that you’ve gotten a little more personal, it’s time to think about this special lady’s actual birthday. Is this one of those milestone birthdays, where you’ll want to incorporate milestone birthday party supplies into your decorations? Is she a champion of breast cancer awareness, and proud to display pink ribbon products any chance she gets? Perhaps she’s a dedicated bargain shopper, and will be thrilled to learn that giving her the perfect birthday party didn’t even come close to breaking the bank, because you relied on discount party supplies, instead of paying full price for all those fancy decorations.

Whether you plan a birthday celebration that is quiet and intimate, or an all-out bash that is talked about for months, the most important thing you can do when planning a woman’s birthday, is to love and appreciate the heart and soul of the woman who has always captured yours.

50th Birthday Parties and Lasting Memories

Personalize your own 50th Birthday Mint Tin Favor

How can we measure our blessings over the expanse of fifty years? As we move into our next personal, half-centuries, those of us who are turning fifty this year look back and realize that it’s only natural to recall special birthdays- our milestones. We fondly recall fully-decorated events. Those memories move forward in time with us.

Do you remember a certain childhood birthday party? What made it special? Did your parents devote extra attention to the details? Maybe their labors of love extended to your dearest companions. Parties were magical affairs filled with colorful balloons, glistening streamers, and exuberant, hot potato games. The children wore party hats, blew noisemakers, and carried home goody bags brimming with party favors. If you were a child in the 1960’s, you might remember the mandatory dresses and ties. Fortunately, some things do change!

Oh, to be a teenager in the seventies, again. Romantic hearts were as big as the hair and the patterns on dresses and ties were as groovy as our parents’ family room curtains. Vinyl albums played through the night as girls spun the bottle to see who’d confess to having crushes on Shaun Cassidy. Reliving the retro party era is dreamy!

50th Birthday Party Mints

Band sounds of Chicago and Boston remind us of the big cities we visited with dates in those years. Our city party theme decorations capture the essence of what solidifies relationships. Couples enjoy gazing at city lights, while talking for endless hours about the future and dreams.

For a mother, the moments that touch the soul are cradling your sleeping baby, listening to the first sounds of “Mama”, or feeling little hands clutching your pinkies while learning how to walk. Then too, are the first friends, the play dates, and the planning of your own children’s parties. So many beautiful memories accompany these years. Baby showers and themed birthday parties were so fun to plan.

Shindigz customers are the most fun people we know. You make life extra special for your friends and family. Celebrate a special 50th birthday with bits and pieces of the above eras. Decorate each room to match a certain decade.  Invite guests to gaze at old pictures and sample favorite foods or drinks from your honoree’s personal journey.  By decorating five rooms, the entire party becomes a collection of fifty years!

May your loved one’s 50th birthday milestone create fond, new memories!

A Special 50th Birthday Wish:

The Shindigz team sends happy birthday wishes to Shindigz owner, Wendy Moyle.  Enjoy your special day.  Happy 50th birthday from all of us!

I’m not 50, I’m 19 with 31 years experience!
Due to budget cuts, the light at the end of my tunnel has been turned off.
I can’t believe I’m 50; 49 maybe, but never 50!
Once over the hill, you pick up speed.
At 50 you’ll have the choice of many temptations, but being 50 also means you’ll probably choose the option that gets you home earliest.
My own mortality will be the death of me yet.
50 year old; one owner; needs parts; make offer.
In dog years I’m dead.
You’ve accumulated the knowledge of 50 years on this planet. Now if only the senility hadn’t wiped it all away.
I’m chronologically gifted!
At 50 he’s seen it all, done it all………. but can’t remember most of it!
Aged like fine wine, complex & fruity.
Before I turned 50 I used to jog 6 miles a day now I know a short cut.

I’m not old, I’m youthfully challenged.
Happy 50th Birthday. Let’s crack open a bottle of prune juice.
Are we the grownups yet?

50 Gleam 'N Burst™ Centerpiece

After you’re 50 if it doesn’t hurt it probably doesn’t work.
If you remove all the wisdom and experience in the world of people over 50 then there wouldn’t be enough left to run it!
Getting old stinks, but it sure beats the alternative.
50! I demand a recount.
It’s just my birthday, I’m not extinct yet!
It’s after sixty that everything that doesn’t hurt doesn’t work!
Yes, me – Charter member, “Old farts hall of fame”.
Fifty is the ultimate “F” word.
50 years old. Bodywork and mechanics need slight attention. Runs on gas.
My wild oats have turned to mush.
Old fart, young heart.
Aged to perfection!
I’m a classic, you only get better with age!
Don’t interrupt me while I’m talking to myself.
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Age equals wisdom – hear this youngin’s?
I’ll be spontaneous when I get around to it.
Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional.
I get everything I set my mind to. Now where’d I set my mind?
I have the body of a god – Buddha!
I’ll be kind to my kids; they’ll be choosing my nursing home.
I’m immortal — so far!
50 years old or 18,250 days young!
I will avenge myself and live long enough to be a problem to my kids!
Which sounds better, 5 decades or half a century?
I’m cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.
Happy 1/2 way to 100!
Age is not a destination, it’s a journey!
AND – He may rule the roost, but I rule the rooster!
