Before we get to all the fabulous ideas that keep Pinterest in business, let’s not forget about the classic kids’ birthday party. Put a modern twist on the classic by pulling off an ultra-themed party. Whether your theme is broad (like sports), or specific (like green Legos), there’s a bevy of photos out there waiting to inspire your party-planning. Buffets of themed food and desserts are a trendy way to please kids and parents and to get the birthday superstar involved. Head over to PopSugar for more fabulous themed party ideas.
The At-Home Fiesta
Any mom knows that taking more than one or two kiddos out can be like wrangling cats. If you plan on inviting a large number of guests, hosting at home can be a lot more manageable. Summer and water are perfect pals, and a backyard water party is a natural choice. With plenty of water games and easy-to-grab finger foods, the kids will stay busy for hours.
Little Kids, Big City
Taking the party on the road can make birthday memories to last a lifetime. North Texas Kids has a great list of places that go beyond the skating rink, and some of them are downright genius! Trampoline parks are a perfect place to get the giggles out (not to mention ensure a good night’s sleep), and most trampoline parks have great all-inclusive birthday party packages. If your group is ready to really cool off, the Dr. Pepper Stars Center has great birthday party packages that include ice skating, food and party favors!
