How to host a Pinterest-worthy themed birthday for your child
It’s no secret that LENZO loves birthday parties – if there’s any reason to decorate a space with big balloons, colourful streamers, and lots of glitter, we’re all in! But there’s just something extra magical about a kid’s themed birthday party. From the invitations to the partyware, decorations, and everything in between, we love nothing more than seeing it all come together in the same patterns, styles or colours.
When you want to throw a themed party that will set your kid’s birthday apart from their classmates, we highly recommend checking out Palm & Pine Party Co! Their amazing products and decorations have been featured in many of our editorials (such as Billie Judd’s Paw Patrol Party, our Candy-Coloured 30th Birthday and Pretty Pastel Gender Reveal) because they know how to throw a party.
So, they shared with us their top 7 kids party themes and matching must-have partyware and decorations:
A space theme: Have an out-of-this-world party for your little one with an intergalactic celebration! It's the perfect theme for the child who is always dreaming big by shooting for the stars
BUY: moon and stars hanging decor / to the moon space plates / to the moon space cake topper / jumbo marble balloon
Safari party theme: Forget overbearing (and predictable!) animal prints - that's been done to death! It’s all about sophisticated, muted tones + jungle cut outs
BUY: go wild jungle favour bags / party napkins / into the wild cups
A unicorn party: There’s nothing more magical than a mythical horse that grants wishes! Make your little one’s dream come true with gorgeous purple and pink hues, glitter cupcakes and of course, a unicorn cake!
BUY: unicorn cups / jumbo marble balloon / unicorn plates / unicorn rainbow balloon
Disco party: Think holographic garlands, silver foil balloons, and lots of sparkling glitter! Any colour palette goes, as long as it’s blindingly bright and fun. Bonus points if you hold the party at a retro rollerskating rink, like we imitated for our Kid’s Roller Disco editorial
BUY: mint confetti napkins / script holographic 'party' balloon / silver chrome balloon / disco diamond plates
Superhero party: Slip on a mask and fight some crime at your little one’s superhero party. Styling a comic book-inspired celebration is sure to go off with a #BANG (and let’s face it: we all dream of having our very own super powers!)
BUY: multicoloured letter garland kit / superhero plates / superhero cups / superhero napkins
Dinosaur theme: A favourite for both boys and girls, everyone has a favourite prehistoric creature! But forget dark and scary Jurassic Park-style colours - instead, go for bright and bold dinosaur prints for a #ROARING good time.
BUY: dinomite cups / dark blue balloon / dinomite plates
Princess mermaid party: Clam bras. Sparkly tails. Long, flowing hair. What’s not to love about being a mermaid? This is still one popular kid’s party theme that is here to stay! And we’re glad: it’s so pretty!
BUY: let's be mermaids garland / jumbo confetti balloon / iridescent party cup
