When you start planning your child's birthday, one of the first things to consider is the 'Party Theme'. I always let my children choose their party theme once they are old enough but for baby's 1st Birthday some ways to choose a meaningful theme could be basing it on a special book you read to them, the same theme as their nursery or bedroom or based on a cute cartoon show.

 Lalaloopsy 

Giggle and Hoot Party lalaloopsy

Giggle and Hoot have become an Aussie household favourite for many families with young children, I know we are big fans in our house. 

Tableware and decorations can be plain, though choose matching colours such as Blue, Orange, Purple and you can even throw in a splash of Pink after the introduction of Hootabelle.

Being the first time we got to hold a ‘girly’ celebration, we decided to theme the morning tea and decided on ‘Lalaloopsy’. 
All the Lalaloopsy dolls have their own personalities, so rather than just do an overall Lalaloopsy theme, we decided to theme a couple of little sections according to a doll’s personality.

Superheros and Action Figure Theme Ideas 

Knights & Dragons

Star Wars / Angry Birds

Knights and Dragons party  Star Wars Party

We recently celebrated my son Ethan's 7th Birthday. Ethan chose a Knight theme and invited a few of his closest little friends to help him celebrate.  I always enjoy the kids parties but I have to say this was the best party ever!  Not the set up (though I was stoked with how it turned out) but it was just such a good time.  Ethan was very particular about what he wanted for his party and wanted a sit down 'feast' as close to what they would have had in medieval times and it definitely had to include a 'big chook'.

There was never any question as to what my soon to be five year old son was going to choose as his birthday party theme this year.  He had become Angry Birds and Star Wars ‘obsessed’ and when the two came together in a marketers dream he was hooked!

 Other Theme Ideas

Dinosaur Roar

 Beach / Under the Sea

Dinosaur Party  Beach Shark Theme Party

Well it was my little man Declan's 3rd Birthday a couple of weeks ago and this years party theme was Dinosaurs!

Declan's Dinosaur obsession started after he saw Justine Clarke's ' Dinosaur Roar'  on ABC.  It was the basis for our Dinosaur party with our backdrop and props that hubby made, based around the film clip.  I had initially visioned a really cute baby Dino style for the party, but Declan wouldn't have a bar of that!  He wanted scary dinosaurs and T-Rex's all the way.

Today I am excited to show you my son Declan's 5th Birthday Party photos.  Declan had initially wanted a Horse party this
year but a few months ago he changed his mind.  He wasn't
too sure what he wanted so we looked through some fun
themed tableware and he chose Sharks as his theme, with a Beach feel though as opposed to Under the Sea. This party
was so bright & fun to plan and is definitely one of my
favourites so far.

Bonfire Party

 
Bonfire party  

Due to a recent trip down south to see family, I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate my son's birthday with his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  This didn't leave a great deal of time time.Two days before the party, my dad mentioned he had some wood that needed burning and would the kids like to see a bonfire.  Ahh yes! So in came the Bonfire theme and the Dino cake became a Dragon!
