Party Planning Ideas for Different Party Themes

By: Richard Curtain

So your kids' birthdays are fast approaching, and you don't have anything planned yet. It's stressful enough to plan for one kiddie party, but what if you get to plan parties for kids with varied interests? Seems a real challenge, right? Well, it's definitely challenging, but nothing you cannot do. Here are two party ideas you can try organizing for kids with different interests.

Superhero theme
When it comes to our boys (and even girls), superheroes and different action figures are a staple in their list of interests and hobbies. If your kids love a particular action figure, start with it for your party theme. Or if they have different superheroes as their favorites, you can do a mash up of these heroes and heroines for the kiddie party. Check out the following party tips and favors:

• Invitations: There are a lot of cute superhero-themed party invites out there, so you surely won't run out of options. Aside from the design, though, it's also recommended to be creative with what you put in the invite. Make it a total package, not just from the look but also from what you have to say.

• Finger food and other snacks: Give the kids something to munch on while still sticking to the party theme. What do you think about comic book pages as cones to hold the snacks? You need not even buy these, just print something and photocopy it.

• Sweets and desserts: Superhero cupcakes, marshmallow action figures, rock candies, and the likes… The list can go on, and it's up to you how you can be creative.

• Costumes: A superhero party is not complete without dressing like one. Let the kids (and their parents, of course) practice their creativity in designing their own costumes. You can even give prizes to kids with the most creative costumes. And we're not talking about store-bought costumes here, but some handmade or totally-built-from-scratch ones.

Hawaiian theme
Who says kids are just into cartoons, games, and action figures? They'll also love beach-themed ones! You don’t need to organize a beach party, though, just to have a Hawaiian luau party. You can plan one right at your own yard. Here are some pointers:

• Luau parties are best known for the following: beach, palm trees, surfers, and hula girls. Start with those for your party theme.

• Request guests to go for casual stroll wear at the beach. Flower prints, long beach dresses or cute little ones, board shorts, and flip flops are the usual Hawaiian styles. You can even add in leis or flower garlands to complete the look! Attires will depend on how laidback or formal the event is, so make sure to inform guests beforehand.

• Look for tropical decorations. You may not have a beach party per se, but you can always create one. Start with the decors – buy from online party supplies shops or make your own! These are some of the things you'll likely need for decors: palm trees, tropical flowers, string lights, tropical birds, beach balls, grass table skirts, and beach umbrellas. Remember, all these will help create the Hawaii beach ambiance you're aiming for, so it's important to spend time planning your party decorations.

• Luau parties simply mean "feasts", and that means having plenty of food. Barbecue and roasted meat are constant favorites, along with grilled salmon and other fish. You can also go for kabobs and Hawaiian pizzas for the main course. For your side dishes, options can include fruits (first and foremost), mashed sweet potatoes and yams, and poi, a traditional Hawaiian delicacy. As for the drinks, you can go for tropical cocktails and fruit smoothies with fruit/umbrella/flower decorations on the side.
