Creative Party Ideas That Can Be Fun

Design Invitation Cards we have everything you need

Kids are always thrilled to see home-made invitation cards.  So forget about making prefab invitation cards and design an invitation at home.  You can play with stickers, foil papers, trinkets, ribbons and much more.  Involve your kid and his friends and go wild with your creation.

Be in Your Budget with Balloons

It is important that you do not exceed your budget. Buy foil or helium balloons a day earlier and blow them with a pump. Remember to hang them far enough from the kids if they are just meant for show. You can get everything you need from one of the supplies we have on the site.

Color-in Caravan – Keep Children Busy

Kids colouring at a party

The idea has become a popular trend for celebrations. Not only does it add colours to the party, but it also engages the party gang in the best way.

Colour-in-Caravan is a set of washable colour pencils and pens that you can easily hire if you think buying it would be expensive.  The colours are stainless and children can be as creative as they want!

If you prefer going out for some creative fun you could try one of the many pottery parties we have listed.

Floral Themed Ideas

Painting parties have become an old tradition, here is this next exciting and creative thing to try in your kid’s party. You can hire decorators to arrange custom floral themes, but if it does not fit your bill, they are easy to arrange and manage yourself.

Decorate walls, chairs, curtains and the cake with small flowers (your choice) or just put them in a stylish vase. You can use the same flowers to make an elegant flower crown for your birthday girl.

Peppa Pig Party

Peppa Pig themed birthday party

Kids are in love with the animated character of Peppa Pig.  Why not make it a theme for your little one’s birthday.  The theme has a lot of room to experimentation with creative ideas.  You can make hand-made crafts like gnome hats and artificial wood-land where kids can play and enjoy. We have a number of themed suppliers in the Party Monkey directory.

Themed Character Party

All kids love to dress up so you definitely can’t go wrong with this brilliant idea.  Arrange a costume based celebration and invite superheroes, Disney princesses, Mermaids, Pirates and Aliens to make your tiny toad’s imaginary and special. You could also hire a party entertainer to keep the kids amused and take some of the strain off.

The All Important Cake

At the end of the party, what could be better than a beautiful cake? I know a lot of parents are extremely creative and love the challenge of baking a lovely cake but for the rest of us mortals, we have professional bespoke cake bakers. Check out some of the amazing designs and themes. It almost seems a waste eating them (almost!)
