The Glitz. The Glam. The paparazzi. Oh to be aged seven again… With ideas to suit all budgets, interests and creativity, this list of seriously sweet birthday party ideas will leave your little princess feeling like a queen for the day.
Cupcake Making Party
Break two eggs with one fork and save on buying expensive shop bought cupcakes this birthday. Get their hands messy with this practical party idea, the girls will love getting so involved in baking their own special sweet treat. Set up individual baking stations at the dining room table and make simple buns that can be tailored to any theme you desire. Go the extra mile and gift personalised aprons for each guest instead of party bags this year.
If your little princess prefers glueing and sticking to pass the parcel, give her what she wants with a fun and innovative crafting party. Mock up some fun creations beforehand and let them get messy. They could design their own birthday cards, t-shirts, animals, the list is endless. Guests can take away their finished pieces as an extra special personal touch. Try this personalised crafting box as a beautiful birthday gift.
Give them a slumber party to remember by setting up matching camp beds and a faux campfire using logs, battery candles and some red and orange tissue paper. Treat boxes filled with eye masks, popcorn and matching PJs will give this camping style party the personalised touch that will make memories last forever. They can sing campfire songs and play games so it feels just like the real thing! Add a sprinkle of unicorn magic to the evening with these personalised cushion covers for each guest.
Roller Skating Disco
Celebrate her birthday on wheels this year by booking a roller skating disco. Whizz to the beat at an affordable price for all the family and friends to enjoy. With skate hire included plus party food afterwards, this is a funky idea that saves all the mess and stress of a party at home.
Horse and Carriage Ride
If your girl is a super princess, then give them a birthday to remember with a horse and carriage ride with their fellow princess friends. Dress them up in their favourite princess character and make them the Belle of the ball for a day. And so they’ll remember the day forever, how about a personalised crown to have on display to keep the magic alive?
Afternoon Tea Party
If your little girl is more ‘country bumpkin’ than ‘diva queen’ then this British tradition theme will be just what she wants. Hang the bunting, lay on a spread for a budget-friendly option. If you want to supersize this quirky idea, pick up cheap vintage crockery at second-hand shops and gather photo props such as gloves, pearly, feathery hats. Sandwiches and scones will finish the look off and will give them an afternoon to remember! And don’t forget to treat the parents with this selection of great tea, you wouldn’t want them missing out now…
Under The Sea Themed Party
Make a splash with this effective party theme. Transform a room into an underwater lagoon by spreading sea shells, sequin material and a bubble machine. Make blue juice to serve the mermaid guests and pin the tail on the dolphin for an all-round magical time. You could also ask guests to write a special message in a bottle to the birthday girl and present it to her at the end in a glass bottle.
