 A rainbow birthday is made up of easy and adorable decorations! The adorable rainbow party also have a rainbow piñata and a pot painting craft,While no party is complete without balloons, we also feel no party is complete without beautiful florals! Creating a rainbow of flowers can be tricky because not all the colours are always available readily but it makes the colourful party beautiful and amazingly awesome. Colourful foods are offered that taste absolutely yummy. There can rainbow pastries, cakes, and cookies!

Also seeing kids in fancy colourful dresses would be fun and extremely lovable!

There can be multiple games for kids based on the theme, for example, Blow up a few balloons in each colour of the rainbow and scatter them all around the room. Place one hula hoop on the floor. Only single at a time, give a player a broom and two minutes to sweep all of the colours of the rainbow into the hula hoop. When time is up, all seven colours of balloons should be inside of the hoop. If they are not, the child is out of the game or has to perform a dance or has to sing!

Farm Barn & Cattle Ranch Theme Party

Lend a vintage and classic ambience to the party venue (a party in the backyard/garden would suit the best) by organizing a farm barn themed party. Featuring the presence of dancing carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, bananas, etc, a farm party can be fun-filled and lively.

Each kid can dress up as his/her favourite fruit and walk into the farm.

Adorn the grounds of your place with haystacks lying in different corners. Use simple decor elements to reflect the farm life

If you wish to extend the domains of this party, you can invite cows, chicks, chickens, sheep and other farm animals (kids wearing the costume) on the ground.

Imagine the scenario when the cows, chickens, and sheep shake a leg together at the party. Isn’t it funny?

A cattle ranch theme party offers a lot of engaging activities to indulge in. You can organize a sack race, lemon spoon race and many other similar games. Have fun until the cow goes moo and the chickens cluck. Reward the winner of each game with a cowboy’s hat. Besides, you can give a packet of seeds to each kid to promote plantation.

Arts & Crafts

If your kid has a creative side, an arts-&-crafts themed party could be an amazing way to celebrate his/her birthday. Kids will feel creative while painting on small canvases, and craft stores usually offer thousands of ready-to-paint wood items like frames, birdhouses, or letters. Sand art is another method to have fun & classic, as is decorating frames made of popsicle sticks. No matter what products you have, kids will enjoy having fun in the chance to get messed up.

Other Additions

In addition to fun games, you can also plan some enriching activities like a crossword party session. Including crosswords like one from mirror crossword 911 and more would make the party a value-creating experience for your kids.

Your kid’s childhood is another chance for you to relive your childhood days. During the party, lose your adulthood and mingle with the kids like never before. Let your worries sink into the pools of oblivion. Let yourself loose.

Hunt for the treasures with your kids, dance with them, laugh out loud and embrace the little joys of life.

These are just a few of the many amazing birthday party themes for a wonderful party. A few more others are Storybook Character Party, indoor camping parties, Backyard Carnival,  Chocolate-Making Party & more where kids spend a large part of the party collecting things for a food pantry or making a fun craft for people at a local nursing home.

And keep this in mind that sometimes less is definitely more. Kids don’t look for a fancy party or a full park of wild animals. What they look for is to spend time with family and their friends doing something fun & crazy.

Planning a birthday party and making sure that it is perfect is a challenge of its own. Don’t worry though! Planning smooth and hassle-free events is truly our passion and we would love to do it for you! Contact us to plan your event and leave the rest on us.
