ds's birthday themes:
1st birthday - Winnie the Pooh
2nd birthday - Trains
3rd birthday - Thomas (the tank engine)
4th birthday - Trains/Thomas (mmm, recurring theme huh? - this was a more low key party and not strongly themed)
5th birthday - Pirate party (very themed, lots of fun)
dd's 1st birthday will probably be butterfly themed, but it might be owl themed - tossing up between the two or combining the two.
My 21st was Christmas themed (my birthday is just after Christmas). Otherwise I haven't really done themed parties.
My DD is turning 1 and we are throwing her a garden party( inside our garage) lots of flowers, butterfly's, we have covered the ceiling with white fabric to give it a tent feel, draped the walls in soft fabric all pastel coloured, I love themed parties and I LOVE to decorate! It makes it so much more exciting!!
For SD this year we are having a Tiaras, Tutus & Tea theme. Basically like a high tea. We are having it in our garden at home. I've been buying little tea cups here and there. I've sewn lace onto little white gloves, bought a paint your own tea-set so they can all paint a teacup to take home (I will paint the four teacup pots and use them as flower holders). The girls will decorate a cupcake as one activity... It's all very hands on and I'm hoping for organised chaos! (There will be 12 7/8year olds and yes, drop and run parents!) It's pretty much all planned, I just need to make the invites etc (I've already designed them) and the party isn't until November!
I love to plan events and so for my cousins I've done:
- goblins and ghouls
- under the sea
- mermaids under the sea (so just a bit more girly)
- moviestars (was a sleep over)
- dance party
- fairies (multiple times!!)
- my little pony
- winter wonderland
- colours (like we had a "purple" party and a "pink" party)
Hmm I think that's it. It's my DD's first birthday next year and I'm thinking either Rainbow or Under the Sea... DH has his annual trip to the States soon so I need to get onto it.
Some days I think I should be an event planner haha.
I love doing my kids parties. Think my favourite one so far was princess them, all the guest came dressed up. I bought a cheapie red plastic table cloth and stuck it to the floor as guests arrived they got their pics taken on the royal red carpet.
We had a palace scene setter so the room really looked great. We did Cinderella style invites.
We've also had-
Pooh bear(1st tons of balloons)
Tinkerbell (also a good one)
That's all DD, DS has only had 1 and it was just all blue and green :S poor DS not so good with the boy themes yet!
I'm doing my first themed party this weekend for DS's 2nd birthday - its a construction theme - looking to be awesome!!
