Top 5 Children's Party Themes

Summertime equals party time! Do your kiddos have a birthday party coming up… or are they just begging to have a summer shindig? Whatever your party-throwing reasons, we’ve researched the most popular kid’s party themes, so you don’t have to–we know how hectic these no-school months can get, after all. 

Without further ado, here are the top 5 children’s party themes:

Farm Animal

Decorate your party with a farm-inspired cake, barnyard place settings, and our Children’s Farm Table and Children’s White Wishbone Chair setup … but why stop there? Make this event super exciting by inviting the kids to dress up as their favorite farm animal! You can make this a homemade costume party to spark extra creativity. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even rent some animals from a petting zoo, but we think cute farm animal kiddos will be memorable enough.  



Who doesn’t love sunny skies and a rainbow surprise? Rainbows are very popular right now, so you’ll have no trouble finding decor to match this theme. Make a rainbow wall with streamers and balloon clouds and accompany your decor with our cute and durable Children’s Rattan Bow-Back Chair. If you want to make this party more interactive, you can nix the traditional cake and have the kiddos decorate their own cupcakes… with rainbow sprinkles and icing colors, of course. 


Outer Space

3, 2, 1… blast off! Make your kid’s party out of this world with this outer space theme. While we usually recommend that you take advantage of the weather and host summer parties outside, this one is the exception. Transform your room by putting star and planet stickers on the walls and ceiling, and by using space-themed twinkle lights. You can display a solar system backdrop on our sturdy 30″ Acrylic Pedestal. Finish it off with outer space cake and decor–maybe a few aliens–and you’re good to go! 



What’s your favorite part of the carnival: games, rides, or food? For your party, try to incorporate all three! For games, try a bag toss booth or pin the nose on the clown. You have to be creative with the rides, unless you have a ferris wheel conveniently located in your backyard. Decorate inner tubes to look like bumper cars and let them play, or display cupcakes on a mini ferris wheel. Which brings us to food–-popcorn, cotton candy, slushies–which you can conveniently display on our Candy & Dessert Cart and Party Push Cart. With this carnival theme, you can do no wrong! 


Two Groovy

It’s time to go retro! Fill your party space with blankets–or shag carpet, if you have any–and substitute traditional chairs for pillow seating. Put color EVERYWHERE, with balloon arches, a vibrant shag carpet cake, our adorable Children’s Lavendar Metal Chair, and tie-dye plates and decor. To make this interactive, you could have the kiddos dress up in tie-dye, or even make tie-dyed shirts there! Hand out hip sunglasses as party favors, to complete this groovy party look.
