Childrens Themed Parties

Below is a step by step guide on how to organise your childrens themed party:

1) Decide on your theme – Give you child 3 or 4 choices and see what they’d prefer. bear in mind that they can change their mind every few days so it’s best to go for something generic like pirates/ princess/superheroes/ fairies/ knights/ under the sea/ jungle/ dinosaurs/ Hawaaian – these tend to be very popular ones. If it’s a childrens themed party for boys and girls then you can have a combination of pirates and princesses or knights and princesses etc…

2) Next decide on your date and check you can find a venue for it. (That’s if you’re not having it your childrens party at home)

3) Once your date is confirmed and the venue is booked send out the invitations ASAP. Usually at least 3-4 weeks before the party to avoid clashing with other parents having a party at the some time as your child’s party.

4) Book your children’s entertainer. There are loads of kids entertainers to choose from, esp[ecially in Surrey and London areas and you can read our blog on advice for how to find good ones. This site has tonnes of listings for childrens entertainers in Surrey, London and all the home counties. If you’re not having an entertainer then decide on the activites you’re having to entertain the kids at the party.

5) Other optional things to think about:

a) You might want to get the kids to dress up according to your theme. If so then mention this in your invitations so kids can have fun dressing up.

b) Decorations – you may or may not want to have decorations associated with your party, but if you’re taking the trouble to theme the party then it’s way more fun to do something with decorations.

c) Party plates, and other tableware.

6) Childrens Themed Party Food– you may want to do some fairly normal party food and there are of ideas on our blog about easy party food ideas but if you want to go that one step further then why not theme the food too. The list for party food ideas is endless. We’ve found loads of ideas that we’ve put in our blog and we add new ones regularly.

7) Birthday cake – If you’re having a themed party then you can’t miss the great opportunity to have a themed birthday cake. This book by Annie Rigg for birthday cake ideas is simply wonderful.

You can make your party as creative as you want depending on how much time you have.

Fun birthday cake candles for childrens parties

Why settle for normal candles on a cake when there’s so many other fun options to choose from. We look for any opportunity we can find to jazz up childrens parties and add on all those magical touches. We’ve given a lot of advice on childrens party entertainers lately so we thought we’d have a look at some other fun party ideas.

We’ve come across a great kids party idea to make your birthday cake even more fun. – Coloured flame candles. There are a number of companies that sell them but we’ve suggested one in the link for you. We couldn’t see a price on the website but they’re being sold on amazon for just over £2 a pack.

Loads of other different candles for birthday cakes

1) Singing Candles – These actually play the happy birthday music for you (there’s a musical box underneath the individual candle)

2) Magic candles where the flames relight after you blow them out (an old favourite). We’ve found a great place to source these (see link below)

3) Lettered candles to write a special message on the cake

4) Themed candles like pirate candles or football shape candles to go with the theme of your choice. You can get any shaped candles for any kids party theme if you look around.

5) Or why not get some funky sparklers to add to the fun. These come in all sorts of great shapes and sizes. You could spell out your child’s name if you wanted.

6) Candle Fountains – These are great and create a real wow effect! It’s like having a mini firwork on your cake!

7) Our party favourite for chidlrens party cake candles was the all singing all dancing musical candle. It’s like a candle fountain, singing candle and a sparkler all in one!

Take a look at this link and you’ll see a video on a musical candle to see what we mean.

You’d be amazed by how much choice there is out there just for candles for childrens parties.

We found a great place to source pretty much all of these types of candles. They have a whole range plus other party supplies.

Whilst you’re in a colourful mood you might like to take a look at this blog we found for a rainbow cake.  It’s a great colourful cake and the candles would compliment it very nicely.
