At Magic Function Hire, there are few things we love better than putting together a really fun birthday party. There is something truly magical about seeing a little birthday girl or boy enjoy their special day with all their friends. This is why we always get very excited when a parent suggests a theme that we can develop into something unique.
Here are three fun ideas that work really well for birthday parties in our experience. These themes are easy and cost-effective to execute, and kids love it!
3 PARTY THEMES THAT ARE ALWAYS A HIT, GUARANTEED!
Barbie theme for girls
This is one theme that has stood the test of time. Barbie has been around since the 1960s and is still as popular with little girls today as it was back then. We’ll dress the event in all shades of pink and ensure that all of the goodie bags have the Barbie-branding to carry though the theme. A fun idea is to have a makeup artists or stylist on the day to give each little girl a bit of sparkly makeover. If you really want to push out the boat, ask that each guest bring along their favourite Barbie (or other doll) and set up a photo booth for Barbie-and-me keepsake photos.
Superhero theme for boys
Superman, Batman, The Hulk – you name the superhero, we can dress the party accordingly. There is nothing a little boy likes better than to show off his favourite hero. Depending on the character, we can dress the event in blue and red, black and yellow or shades of green. We can also arrange that a face painter joins us to give the guests a bit of colour. Of course, the goodie bags and party favours will also match the theme. Another fun idea is to set up a simple obstacle course, so all the little superheroes can show off their skills (and burn some energy!).
Barnyard theme (unisex)
A barnyard theme is great if you don’t want to go too gender-specific. Put out a few haybales, throw in some chequered table cloths and dress the event like a kid-friendly farm and you’re good to go. There are lots of games that go with this theme – bobbing for apples, pinning the tail on the donkey, etc. We could even arrange for a mobile petting zoo to tie it all together.
These are just three of the themes that we can offer you for your child’s birthday party. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss any weird and wonderful ideas you may have. We’re always up to the challenge to create something fresh and new.
