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.

Cute Play Date Parties for Ages 6 Months to 18 months


Planning play date parties is one of those fun challenges facing new mommies.  Whether you’re a new mother or an expectant mother, why not jump-start your party planning?  Even if you’re expecting and you don’t know whether to plan baby girl play dates or baby boy play dates, you can still plan a fun party that will work for either gender.

Cute Play Date Parties for Boys

Boys tend to grow up with a fascination with destruction and construction, so a great theme for your little man is a construction theme!  With an easy theme like this, you’ll be able to find plates and napkins quickly.  Now you can turn your attention to the “play” part of the play date party and plan a few games that will help the parents help their babies to learn new things.  This could include anything from “pattycake” to early counting and alphabet.

Another cute play date idea for baby boys is a monster truck theme.  This play date party idea would be great for daddy and son days!  It’s a party theme that you could carry through your baby’s younger years all the way to high school, a chance for your son and his dad to bond over the years.

Cute Play Date Parties for Girls

For some reason, play dates seem easier to plan for little girls than for little boys.  For a little girl’s play dates, you have choices from ballerinas to ladybugs Both could also involve a game of dress-up for the mommies to get involved in.  Treat bags and favor boxes are a must for little girls, so why not use a table centerpiece made up of favor boxes?

Boy and Girl Play Date Parties

These are probably the easiest play date parties to plan.  One of the most popular themes for a play date party that both boys and girls can attend is a farm theme.  Boys and girls can learn about farm animals!  If your party includes a naptime, mommies can relax with the babies and help them count sheep while they drift off to sleep.

Another popular theme is a circus theme.  The bright colors used in circus party decorations will stimulate your children and keep their attention, as will the variety of fun party favors and toys they can play with.

Play date parties are meant to be not only fun, but also educational.  By choosing a theme and planning your play date parties early, you’ll be able to plan a few games that will help your children get a head-start learning new things.

July Party Ideas


Take the plunge with a new theme for an annual block party, pool party or garden club event (and more!). Here are some ideas for using theme parties for your July events.

Create a Carnival Theme for a Block Party
If your neighborhood is in a phase where lots of children live there, this one’s for you!

First, identify neighbors who have canopies and picnic tables they are willing to lend to the effort. Once they are set up for the party (and, where applicable, weighted properly against the wind) you can decorate them with strings of flag pennants and bright-tone balloons.

Starting with a carnival theme means so much else will fall into place, including the food. Commandeer a few grills and think hot dogs, grilled corn and ice cream.

Pick up a few carnival activities, such as classic toss games and duck floaters, and cheap favors for prizes. We find that many older children truly enjoy running games for the younger ones, so everybody is happily engaged.

You can find all the materials for decorating and activities in Carnival Party Supplies.

Think Gardens and Showers for a Ladybug Party
Already beloved by birthday girls, the ladybug party is also being claimed by party planners as a hot new summer baby shower theme. We also like it for garden club events. The color red, polka dots…what’s not to love?

Cover tables in white and add big bunches of red summer flowers and ladybug mylar balloons. Add polka dot tableware, Ladybug Fancy napkins and a bit of bug table confetti. You’ll see the smiles will arrive by themselves.

Consider also that July is a terrific month for a ladybug release and a spectacular part of a ladybug party if done right. For this, you’ll need to have the ladybug party in the evening and release in a garden area that’s had rain or been watered earlier in the day. (For more information on ensuring the well-being of the ladybugs during and after release, search online for “how to release ladybugs.”)


Throw a Different Kind of Beachfront Bash or Pool Party
We know everybody loves the luau, but why not go in a different direction? A nautical theme party will bring in a new color scheme and can be dressed up or down – and nobody says you can’t still enjoy a round of limbo if you like.

Imagine a gently swinging banner of semaphore flags and an anchor mylar balloon bobbing in a sea of blue latex balloons – and that’s just the entrance to your nautical theme party!

Deck tables in covers of cool white with runners of navy blue, and personalized nautical favors that match the design of the banner. Hoist rows of anchors, port holes or ship’s wheels on walls and embellish the bar with fishnet and an anchor centerpiece.

Wear and share captains’ and gobs’ hats for a humorously jaunty touch.

Try These Excuses for More Parties in July
July is National Ice Cream Month and National Picnic Month. The 28th of July is Milk Chocolate Day and American Cowboy Day. Do you know someone with a birthday in July who loves any of these things? Your theme dilemma is solved!

We have theme party supplies for all of these July celebrations. Start planning your out-of-the-ordinary summer party today.
