When planning a birthday party for a child or an adult, using a birthday party theme is one way to generate lots of fun and excitement and turn the event into something your guests will always remember. One thing to remember is the age of the person for whom you are throwing the party, and to choose from birthday party themes that are appropriate for him or her. In particular, if you are throwing the party for a child, the potential for birthday party themes is almost endless. There are numerous possibilities for any kind of budget, limited only by your imagination.

Many parents opt for themes based on their child’s favorite television character. Whether it’s SpongeBob SquarePants or Tinker Bell, creating a party theme centered on a cartoon character is fairly easy and inexpensive, and offers a lot of room for innovation. Another one of the more popular themes for young kids is the pirate party. Generating ideas that fit with this theme can be fun for both parents and kids. Think, for example, of a treasure chest birthday cake, pirate eye patches for guests and a scavenger hunt for lost treasure.

Fairy birthday party themes are popular for young girls as well. For these themes, renting an electric bubble generator can create the ambiance, along with a magical cake with edible flowers and magic wands.

For adults, birthday party themes may be a little more complex, but can be just as much fun. Often, these involve some form of costuming or masquerade, such as celebrity parties (in which everyone dresses up as their favorite celebrity) or parties centered around the guest of honor’s personality or interests. Also, 80’s-themed parties, beer-tasting parties and mystery “whodunnit” parties are other possibilities.

Using a more general theme for an event is another possibility for both children and adults. For example, many parents opt to have a birthday bash for their kids at the local roller rink or bowling alley, and movies and pizza have been staples of teenage birthday parties for decades.

Whatever you decide, it’s important to remember to always have fun. Getting stressed over details is usually wasted energy. A successful theme party is centered on the people who are present, not on the presentation or the decorations, so don’t worry too much if all the small details are not exactly perfect.
