So get going... you will have fun in making it happen and your kid will love you for what you have given them on their special day. You just have to make them feel special... that's the trick!! Absolutely...I know you can do anything to bring a smile on their face.
So let's begin... first decide where you are going to host your party - indoors or outdoors?? So that you will be clear in what you can decorate. Like if it's an outdoor party - less of decoration and more of theme based games and activities. Indoor - lots of decoration, music, indoor activities, gifts, etc. Then go through the below listed ideas... and pick yours!! If you don't find your kid's aspiration here... atleast you will go back with more creative ideas to decorate your party with available supplies.
Whatever be the theme you chose, you would be wondering where to start your planning from! Some of the best things that can bring on the essence of the theme easily are: Start with the Printable Invitations, Cupcake toppers, Themed Cake decoration, hanging decorations, party banners, lanterns, candles, balloons, table decorations, plates, spoons and forks on the same theme or tied with a cute patterned ribbon matching the theme, printable labels for putting up dish names, the platters can be different from the quite normal dish wares - serve in something quirky related to the theme, themed gift boxes for the guests, the shape color and decorated food items like cupcakes, cookies, etc. Don't forget to decorate your entrance to the party. Don't worry.. there a lot of blogs out there which give you free printables on most of the themes.
You know your kid's favorite cartoon/fantasy character or superhero... be it angry birds, spiderman, ironman, harry potter, barbie, rapunzel, hanuman, tom n jerry, power rangers, dora bujji, ice age, hello kitty, minions.... what not!! It can also be apirates themed party ;) Just follow the color combinations used in the character's movie. Try to get whatever supplies available, with the chosen character. The one easy way to get ideas is to search in pinterest. For eg. Type "Harry Potter Themed parties" in pinterest... and you will be flooded with ideas to decorate your party, where to get supplies, etc. Conduct some activities or games related to your chosen theme, that makes the party even more fictious!! Take the kids into their fantasy world.
Kids have their favorite seasons or something in nature that they like a lot!! When you figure their most favorite one... bang on.. host a party on that theme. Some of them to inspire you - Rainbow themed party, Beach Party, Butterfly, Peacock, Dog or Cat :)... It can be anything that your kid loves.. even a teddy!! You need just a bit of imagination to host your themed party.
If you don't find them into any particular fantasy things, host your party completely in your kid's favorite color. :)
Make colored paper pom poms, paint your candles, cut out some patterned papers, etc.
Check out Martha Stewart site for some DIY tutorials... or just google them :)
Some of us either like to keep it simple... or rather do not have time to make it big!! Poor working moms out there. We can just decorate a corner of the room or a table and make all eyes turn towards it. Just like the ones below:
