Planning the perfect birthday party can sometimes be challenging particularly as the months begin to turn towards cooler weather. However, the cooler temperatures do not have to deflate the fun! Here are some great fall and winter party themes for the little princess in your life.
Pumpkin Pamper Party
The fall season is the perfect opportunity to move indoors and create spa treatments all around pumpkins.
The fall colors and beautiful pumpkins make the perfect backdrop for your party festivities while spa treatments can include a pumpkin honey face mask, homemade pumpkin-coconut oil moisturizer and using pumpkins as the perfect “bowls” for manicures and pedicures. Treats can include a build your own candy apple bar and warm apple cider.
Expand the fun: Head to a local pumpkin patch or nature area such as Morton Arboretum.
The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to get kids in the kitchen and get them baking.
Parties can include little aprons, baker’s hats and rolling pins (these work as favors, too.) Guests will have a blast perfecting the quintessential recipe, decorating shaped sugar cookies and taste testing their creations.
Package up some of their goodies in tins for them to take home or give to someone they love. Getting kids in the kitchen is always the perfect excuse for a celebration.
Expand the fun: Partner with a local bakery, such as Sprinkles or Molly’s Cupcakes, to visit the kitchen and see how things work. Not to mention another opportunity for those sweet samplings.
The newest craze is to put together a birthday party with the opportunity to give back.
Host a birthday party where guests are invited to bring a charitable donation such as books or new toys in lieu of gifts for the birthday girl.
Expand the fun: Theme your entire party around the organization you plan to help. Got an animal lover? Contact your local shelter about visiting to help socialize the kitties. Got a future star? Contact an adult living center about putting on a talent show for the residents. The ideas are limited only by your imagination.
Cooler temps don’t have to be a downer on the fun. Put together any of these parties for your little miss and enjoy the smiles and loads of laughs from party guests.
If you plan it right, you just might be able to fit in your own pumpkin spa treatment as a reward for your hard work planning the perfect party.
