Colorful Dinosaur Party Ideas for Girls

Girls like dinosaurs too!

I never got why boys were always the ones having the dinosaur and ninja themed parties, and girls always had to have the spa or princess themed parties. That is just absurd! Girls can like dinosaurs, ninjas, and event racing themed parties too.

And so to honor the strong, confident girls around the world who want to celebrate among dinos, I have put together this week’s inspiration board, for them. The concept was to have a colorful dinosaur birthday party for girls, which was not completely pink, purple and full of gentility.

But you know what I found? It’s actually pretty hard to find dinosaur themed birthday party posts for girls that are not full of princess crowns, tutus, and bright pink. So I thought I would incorporate lots of vibrant colors throughout to make this event perfect for the dino loving little girl that could care less about a tiara and a doesn’t mind what color her dinosaur friends are.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Birthday Bear Picnic Ideas for National Teddy Bear Day

I just love it when I discover unusual holidays I never knew existed. In fact, today’s party idea board was inspired by “Teddy Bear Day”, which is apparently celebrated today, September 9. I took it one step further and turned this into a picnic party. Originally I wanted to go for a sleep over theme, but after reading about how there is actually a Teddy Bear Picnic Day (in July) I just had to create something marvelous around that.

Just about all of these elements could easily be translated indoors or outdoors. A few white sheets and some kid friendly snacks can make for quite the play party out in a local park, or even in your back yard. This is a classic, year round party theme you can’t go wrong with.

Here’s what I had in mind, and be warned….cuteness incoming!

Puppy Party Ideas for Mutt’s Day 2015

Hello and happy Wednesday! The inspiration board for this week is inspired by Mutt’s Day. Apparently, July 31 is the official day to celebrate your mutt! When I read about this unusual but fun holiday, I knew there was going to be an idea board put together inspired by the holiday.

This week’s idea board could really go a few ways: as a party for welcoming a new mutt to your home, an adoption party (for stuffed animals of course!), or a puppy party – with the kids getting to wear cute puppy ear headbands, play puppy games, etc.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Mermaid + Merman Under the Sea Summer Party

This week I knew exactly what I wanted to create when I sat down to make this week’s party idea board. I wanted something that would be fun for kids, boys and girls, and would be a hit this summer. I came up with the idea of having a mer-people (that’s mermaids and mermen) inspired party. Naturally, it would be fantastic if this was based around a beach location, but I think a pool party would be just as fun.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Christmas Eve Cookies and Milk Party Ideas

Hello! And Merry Christmas! As Christmas Eve is drawing nearer to completion, and everyone is getting snuggled up in their comfiest of PJs, why not gather the family together and have a little midnight par-tay? Ok, maybe not AT midnight, but late night, when it is dark, and cold out and it’s about “that time” to get everyone to bed.

What if you had a little family PJ party, with some warm milk and a few cookies? A few cookies mind you – you’ve gotta leave some for Santa! This would be such a fun bonding opportunity for your family or just your other half, and a great new tradition. You don’t even have to open presents. Just get some cookies, your PJs and sit around the lit tree with all the other lights off. It’s a pretty magical moment. Plus, you can get some uber cute pictures of the little ones!

Here’s what I had in mind: (and yes – paper plates and small servings are PERFECT for this last minute get together!)

Comic Book Party Ideas

So it turns out tomorrow, September 25th, is National Comic Book Day! Who knew? I didn’t know they had this holiday, but apparently it’s been around for a while. Did you know it was an official day?

I thought I would put together an inspiration board to help get your creative juices flowing if you were throwing a little get together to celebrate. This could also be a helpful resource if you were having a super hero party, a hero party, a villains party….or really a lot of kid party ideas. Here’s what I’m thinking:
