New Birthday Party Themes Include Personalized Parties for Young Children


Children’s birthday parties can be simple or extravagant.  Shindigz, a leading, national party supplies company, offers a complete line of personalized party products for parents who want to go above and beyond by creating birthday decorations and favors with their children’s images, names, and ages.

Kids eyes light up when they see how colorful and fun a ladybug or farm birthday party theme can be. To help parents visualize all the ways they can personalize these birthday parties with their child’s name, we’ve recently added short videos to our web site for several colorful kid’s themes.

Ladybug Fancy Party Supplies

Ladybug Fancy Party Supplies

In lieu of television or book characters, these newer party themes are cute and interactive, making the birthday boy or girl the center of attention.

Parents love using pictures of their children’s faces as the focus of the party decorations.  Make the guest of honor appear to shoot out of a cannon at a circus-themed party or create a life-sized standee of the birthday boy or girl next to buried treasure at a pirate birthday party. These custom decorations are memorable backdrops in the photos used to create keepsakes, thank-you notes, or social media posts.

The personalization of children’s birthday parties doesn’t stop at decorations. Parents are using their children’s names, ages, and images to create personalized party favors. Young children can forever remember their early birthday parties with the personalization of mint tins, coasters, banners, photo frames, canvases, and more.

Here are some of the most popular up-and-coming birthday themes that party-throwers are personalizing for their youngsters:

Barnyard Bash

Farm animals are big right now. A barnyard bash showcases farm animals like sheep, cows, and pigs. Personalized banners make the barnyard bash come to life and celebrate the birthday boy or girl.  A large red barn acts as a decoration and activity for the kids at the party.

 

Bumble Bee

From the party invitations to the decorations, Bumble Bees provide a bright and fun party theme. These black and yellow decorations are appropriate for boys and girls and are a perfect theme for spring and summer birthday parties.

 

Dinosaur

Dinosaur standees as tall as the birthday boy or girl make dinosaur parties all the rage. A personalized birthday banner puts a memorable spin on the dinosaur-themed party, which is loaded with dinosaur, larger-than-life decorations.

 

Ballerina

Tiny dancers are finding personalized ballet decorations are making their parties remarkable. Pink and purple decorations with an emphasis on ballet slippers are popular for little girls around the country.

Shindigz Summer Games: Agility Obstacle Course


The final event for the Shindigz Summer Games: Race to the Golden Dog Bone took place earlier this morning. Shindigz Party Hosts participated in an Agility Obstacle Course. The obstacle course was full of Shindigz products! First, participants had to weave between colorful field cones, and then they had to dive into a tube and army crawl through it. Party Hosts then ran through a tire drill but instead of tires, the circles were made with glow necklaces. This was followed by hop scotch and a straight line drawn in sidewalk chalk that was walked like a tight rope. Party Hosts raced over to a limbo game and had to be careful not to knock the stick off. The most challenging obstacle was kicking an inflatable soccer ball into an inflatable goal. Finally, the obstacle course ended with five jumping jacks and running through the finish line. Each team was timed and the results will be announced at the closing ceremony tomorrow at the Shindigz Company Meeting. These results will also help determine the first ever Race to the Golden Dog Bone Champion.

This obstacle course is just one example of do-it-yourself games and events you can create at home. Check back tomorrow for the final results and to see which of the six teams will be crowned as champions.
