A child’s party should be one of life’s sweetest moments, both for the child and the parents. Let your imagination run with decorations, foods, activities, and gifts. Check out our inventive ideas that will keep all your guests happy.

Wonderfully whimsical touches:

  • Paint an inexpensive tablecloth with the children’s names and their foot or handprint. 
  • Be creative with place cards: Paint the children’s names on shiny, yellow plastic firefighter hats, goodie bags, party hats, balloons, baseballs or footballs.
  • Decorate a room around a theme that the child will enjoy.
  • Cut peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with cookie cutters shaped like favorite animals or cartoon characters. 
  • Be creative with “goodie bags”: Use plastic beach pails, treasure chests, cowboy hats, or lunch bags.
  • Use lots of balloons with streamers, letting them float the ceiling. 
  • Provide plenty of games. 
  • Buy disposable cameras and place them on tables for guests to snap shots of the celebration.
