5 Kids Birthday Party Themes WITH Links!

5 Kids Birthday Party Themes WITH Links!

Note: This post contains some affiliate links.

Welcome back, friends!  Today I thought I’d share a little secret about myself: I LOVE PUTTING TOGETHER KIDS BIRTHDAY PARTY THEMES.  I have so many of these saved on my computer, it's ridiculous!  My favorite resources for creating party themes are by far, Etsy and Amazon.  I try to purchase as much as I can through Amazon because it tends to be cheaper and I use Etsy for the more personalized items such as invitations and birthday outfits.  A little trick: if you see something you love on Etsy, look for that seller on Amazon.  A lot of times you can get the item for the same price (or very close to it) but with free PRIME shipping!  I'm all about saving that money whenever you can.

And now, without further delay, here are FIVE birthday party themes WITH shopping lists for you!  Yay!

Theme #1: Unicorn Birthday Party


1) Invitations: Etsy   2) Personalized backdrop printable: Etsy   3) Birthday outfit: Etsy   4) Tableware: Amazon   5) Party hats: Amazon   6) Favor boxes: Etsy   7) Unicorn Poop favor idea: Amazon   8) Baby unicorn toy favor idea: Amazon   9) Table confetti: Amazon  10) Cupcake toppers: Amazon   11) Plastic tablecover: Amazon

Theme #2: Taco Birthday Party
