Children Party Basics

Planning a child's party is quite different than planning a teen or adult party.  Although you will find our Party Planning Basics useful, we are working on a  writing a  new set of recommendations specifically for children's parties. In the meantime, we have included some children party planning guides from Birthday in a Box at the bottom of this post. They are definitely worth checking out!

New Feature!

Child's Party of the Month:  Tea Party

You asked. We answered

What to do for a girl's 5th birthday party?

I am looking for ideas for my daughters 5th birthday party, she has already had

  • 2nd birthday – farm party
  • 3rd birthday – tumble time party
  • 4th birthday- hall party with a magician

..Would love some ideas please? Thanks.'s Answer

We had a tea party for my daughter's 5th birthday. Not only did the girls have a wonderful time but the pictures from the party are still among our favorites because the huge smiles on the kids faces. We actually held the party at a tea room but you can just as easily do this at home.
All the girls arrived at the party wearing party dresses and accompanied by their favorite doll. For the main activity we set up a mini manicure station, a make-up station (girls of this age love doing their own make-up, and yes, it is over done and a bit smeared but absolutely adorable because it is kid-like, and not pageant perfect), and an accessory station full of beads and “pearls”, boas, little purses and Easter style hats. After they were all dolled up they preceded to have their photos taken. You could probably add a photo frame decorating station, too, if you need to fill more time. Then the girls sat down to a traditional tea (or hot chocolate), replete with tea sandwiches, scones, and mini pastries. We ended the afternoon with a girl / doll fashion show where I gave a few brief facts about each girl and described her outfit as she twirled down the runway.

Make your life easy – rather than running around town order kids Tea Party Hats, small assorted sequin diva purses, 6ft feather boas (cut them in half), and costume beads or

Mardi Gras beads directly from Amazon.  (No need for additional party favors!)

My daughter and her friends turned 16 this year, yet when they get together, they still reminisce about the tea party.

Enjoy your 5 year old — they grow up way to fast!
