Cotton Candy Birthday Theme

One birthday party idea that is as fun as it sounds, is a birthday theme based on our favorite candy. In honor of the birthday boy or girl’s birthday, find a place to rent a cotton candy machine and make sure there are plenty of tables with stacks of blue and pink cups set out for kids to fill with their choice of flavors. You can also make a cotton candy birthday cake by slicing a chocolate sheet cake horizontally, frosting the top with vanilla buttercream frosting and covering it in swirls of white and pink icing. If you need more birthday supplies like balloons or tableware then check out our birthday party supplies catalog.

Circus Party

What birthday party idea is more fun than a circus birthday party? This birthday theme can make for an exciting birthday party, with clowns and birthday hats, cotton candy and popcorn. The birthday decorations could be in a striped pattern, with balloons and other decor in pink, blue, yellow and white colors. The birthday cake can be a three tiered round cake with alternating layers of chocolate cake and vanilla buttercream frosting to look like a circus tent.

Nautical Party

A birthday party theme with a nautical touch is another birthday idea that kids are sure to love. Another fun birthday party supply you can include in your birthday decorations are inflatable palm trees, which will remind guests of the beach even when they’re inside! The cake could be decorated to look like an anchor or boat, and there should definitely be a birthday piñata filled with candy and other goodies.

Carnival Party

A birthday party idea that will have kids excited is a carnival birthday party, full of games and prizes! It’s a birthday theme for younger children so it should be simple to execute, but still fun. The food at the birthday parties could include hot dogs, birthday cake and birthday party supplies like balloons in fun colors. The birthday decorations could be colorful tissue paper pom-poms strung up to look like carnival tents.

Themed Birthday Party

Do you have a favorite TV program or video game that your youngster likes? For them, a themed birthday party is the ideal birthday idea! You may use birthday streamers or a piñata filled with sweets to decorate the cake in the colors of the theme. If your kid loves Spongebob Squarepants, for example, you might construct a green and yellow Spongebob Birthday Party Cake by putting on a Spongebob birthday party hat on top.

Star Wars Birthday Party

Is your child a Star Wars devotee? This birthday theme will be a hit, since it includes Darth Vader piñatas and brilliant tissue paper pom-poms strung up in the shape of stars to resemble the night sky. A birthday piñata full of sweets should be included in the party, as well as a frozen carbonite figure of Han Solo.

Superhero Party

A superhero theme for a thirtieth birthday party is another exciting alternative! Purchase decorations such as superhero masks and plastic swords, as well as a large number of birthday headwear for the guests. The cake may be dressed to look like a birthday metropolis, and cookies shaped like sugar superheroes’ logos would be an excellent addition.

Pirate Party

Is there a pirate in your life? Have them celebrate turning another year older with a fantastic birthday party theme they’ll enjoy. Pirate flags, treasure chests, and inflatable palm trees are just a few of the birthday décor options. A unique food idea is to serve plastic plates decorated like treasure maps with birthday cake and other party supplies such as pirate wigs.

Christmas Birthday Party

A Christmas birthday theme is another wonderful idea for a birthday! String lights or paper snowflakes could be used to create the birthday decorations. To remind guests that they’re celebrating a birthday during the holiday season, you may also purchase inflatable reindeer. The birthday cake may be dressed up to resemble a Christmas tree with presents beneath, and youngsters will enjoy opening their gifts at this birthday party!
