Theme Birthday Party Ideas
Go to Archive >Archive.htmlshapeimage_2_link_0
As a kid I loved to pick my birthday theme for the invitations, cake, and sometimes even the games.
As a parent, I find using a theme even more fun, special, and memorable.  I love to watch the kids’ imaginations soar with theme food, decor, and costumes.  
Most of these ideas are inexpensive, quick to implement, and can be easily customized and expanded to fit your child’s party! Have fun browsing!

Time Saving Tip: My two kids each have birthdays within 3 weeks of Halloween, so whatever Halloween costume they pick is also the theme for their birthdays. They get to use their costumes twice, and I only have one to make or purchase!
This also saves time, gas , and shipping costs (from party supply companies such as Oriental Trading Company) because I can shop for both birthday parties and Halloween -- all at the same time.
Why Themes?
