Why develop a theme for a party in the first place?

Themes tend to improve your overall event for you and your guest. A theme will help focus attention on a main topic and provides a unifying factor which will pull the whole event together. The use of a theme will keep your affair from looking disjointed or like it was planned haphazardly.

The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a special character, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

Party Slogan:

After selecting a theme for your party, choose a slogan to use in your Invitations and to tie in decorations and favors.


The invitations let your guests know that they will want to be there and join in the fun. Add some Confetti in your cards to spur on some anticipation for the party! Don’t forget to encourage your guests to drag out any theme related items they may have and wear or bring them to the party.

Make a cute invitation by using a theme related item and attaching a note with the party details. Hand deliver the invitations.

Imprinted Invitation provides another alternative and can be imprinted with your personalized party slogan, along with a image.

Party Decorations

Setting the tone for your party can be easy with some basic decorating tips. Whether you are using a "theme" or have decided to use a color scheme, choosing your colors is the starting point to creating an inviting atmosphere.

Colors Scheme:

When using a color scheme use one or two main colors and build around these. If you choose to use only one color for your decorating, try to add little touches of another color or a lighter or darker shade of the same color to create a more pleasing effect. Adding little splashes of white, black, gold or silver will not detract from your main color choice, and the effect will be considerably more dramatic! If you have decided to go with a "theme" for your party use colors that relate to that theme. When using a "theme", choose basic colors, then add some fun props related to your theme to create a spectacular party setting!

Table Decorations:

At some point during the planning stages of your event the subject of linens will arise. When it does stop and think of all the possibilities available to you. Remember the tops of the tables provide you with a very large surface area and covering them with a themed table cover is the easiest way to change the feel of a room.. It is also the most cost effective way to decorate.

Setting a table with themed birthday party ware, including the tablecloth, cups, plates, napkins, and cutlery, is the fastest way to create a focal point in a room. Start with the table cover, then create a place setting at the table for each guest. Don't go overboard with the theme related plates, cups, napkins and etc., adding some solid colored items that coordinate with your theme colors will provide you with a designer look. For example, if you are using a theme patterned cup, use a solid color napkin or visa versa. Remember you can use to much of a good thing.

Add a centerpiece that coordinates with your theme.

Try one of the following ideas to liven up your table:

Unfold the napkins, pinch each in the center of the napkin, and place the center point in the bottom of each cup. This adds a decorative touch while the cups are still empty.

Napkins can be laid out on a serving table, or can be displayed at each place setting. Place napkins in the center of each place setting at an angle.

Tie napkins with curling ribbon and place in the center of each plate at an angle. The cutlery can also be added before the napkin is tied with ribbon.

Order napkins and have them imprinted with your party slogan and the design of your choice. The napkins will serve several purposes – great decorating in disguise and a treasured memento for the guest of honor’s scrapbook.

Greet your guests by hanging a personalized banner from your front door or entrance, with a special message for the guest of honor. If you have decided to use a theme, then use a custom theme banner. A fabulous way to add spunk right from the get-go!

Scene Setters

Transform a room into a large scene using scene setters. They can fill an entire wall, and better yet, they provide guests with the most realistic setting imaginable. They also make an excellent photo background too.

Electric party lights make beautiful decorations.

Inflatable decorations are fun to put on the front yard before the party or anywhere you like to create a focal point.

Easy, Affordable Decorating!

Decorating with balloons, is an inexpensive but powerful way to transform your party area into a festive space in minutes. Tie balloon bouquets to the back of a chair, mailbox or your front door. Use balloon bouquets as centerpieces. Tie clusters of balloons everywhere. Balloon arches & columns are ideal for photo backdrops, entryways, and to hi-light different areas around your party room. Scatter balloons on the floor. Make balloon flowers or wreaths. Swag balloons across a ceiling. See tips on decorating with balloons below for instructions.

Use a Helium Tank to fill balloons. Tie curling ribbon to balloons and group them together. (Odd numbers look best: 3, 5, or 7.) Place groupings of balloons around the party site.

Party Activities

Nothing beats an old-fashion sing-along. Try to find someone who knows a few tunes and can play the guitar for a fun sing-along or use a sing-along Cd. You could also have the guests list as many songs as then can and give a prize to the one with the longest list!

If something a bit more active sounds like the way to go, try some of these suggestions:

Hire a children's entertainer like a clown, magician, face painter, & etc.

Kids of all ages love to have their faces painted! Use face paints to liven up your child's next birthday party. It's a fun and inexpensive activity that is sure to please all your little party guests! Depending on your party theme, paint the child's entire face, or simply paint on a design that complements your theme. Some ideas? Choose stars for a celestial theme party, skull & crossbones for a pirate party, a cat face for a Hello Kitty theme, or rainbows for a fairy tale theme party.

Try your luck at a Hula Hoop  contest.

Take out your frustrations on a Pinata.

Sack Races – some things you just never outgrow!

Party Game Ideas


Party Favors

Traditional loot bags filled with treats and sweets will always be a big hit with partygoers. Add some themed favors too.

Rather than waiting until your guests are making their exit to give them a party favor, you can give your guests favors during the party, which will add color and fun! Favors can do double-duty at any party, as they provide perfect tabletop accents that can be used as decorations. Select favors specific to your child's birthday theme or visit our "theme" party section, and place them on the tables, or if you are decorating around a color theme, any of the following would be perfect:

A favorite loot bag treat, add large coloring books and jumbo crayons and have some fun.

All your little guests will love sticker & tattoos. Kids love having a new place to put their stuff!  Use a brightly colored boxes and have the kids decorate a box for their sticker collections.  They will have a blast decorating it.  Let them color a picture on the box, add some glitter, or just let them decorate their box with stickers.  Allow each child to cover their own box with whatever stickers they want!  Before the party, divide up the stickers and place equal amounts in each box. Try to give the children equal amounts -- they will notice. For younger children (ages 2-4) let the children randomly adhere the stickers. For older children, encourage them to create designs or patterns. Keep in mind though, there is no wrong way to adhere stickers. Be sure to label each box so there is no confusion at the end of the party. If you have other favors to send home, enclose them in the decorated box.

Party Food

As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 will eat very little and the waste can be disheartening. Schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other munchies such as mini chocolate chip cookies, pretzels, and grapes (cut in half for toddlers).  

Bakeries today are turning out cakes that are gorgeous, and ever more creative. However, many of us still prefer the tradition of baking our own cakes to recognize special times in the lives of those who are most important to us. Starting with the right equipment will give you perfect results every time. To bake any cake, or for just about any shape you could want to bake, we recommend that you invest in three special pans, and a few other items. Trust us…you'll use these things over and over again.

  • 16" round commercial grade pan – straight sides

  • 18" X 13" rectangle commercial grade pan – straight sides

  • Wilton™ ball pan

  • Flexible metal spatulas – one with a narrow tip for small areas, and one with a large tip to smooth frosting on large flat areas.

  • Paste food colors

  • Pastry bag and couplers

  • Cake decorating tips – several (2-3) writing tips, and a star tip for starters.

  • Cake boards

All of these items can be purchased at specialty baking stores, and many craft supply stores now carry them.
