Consider hosting this party in an outdoor space, such as the backyard or garden, or transform an indoor space with a gathering of tree branches and floral accessories. Strings of lights and woodland creature statues are additional decorations to consider. A bubble-making machine and sprinkling of "fairy dust" (confetti) may be used to enhance the magical atmosphere.
Activities such as an enchanted forest scavenger hunt and "magic bead" jewelry making will make guests hungry for mystical menu items served along with magic potion beverages.
In addition to the magic jewelry, ideas for party favors include woodland creature coloring books, pixie sticks and fairy dust bottles.
Menu suggestions for a wake-up party include breakfast cupcakes (omelets baked in muffin pans), fruit slices arranged in the pattern of a sunrise and orange juice served in plastic goblets.
Kids can enjoy slumber party crafts and traditional activities such as pillow fights or decorating pillowcases, along with games that incorporate the theme of sleeping and waking up, like “Sleepwalking Musical Chairs.”
Favor suggestions for a wake-up party include single-serve cereal boxes, personalized toothbrushes and alarm clocks.
Backward BirthdayWho wouldn't love a party where the cake is served upon arrival? At a backward-themed birthday party, the cake – and everything else – is out of order. The way this party breaks all of the rules will certainly appeal to kids at this age.
From turning the furniture in the party space backward to asking guests to walk backward, ideas for carrying out this party theme can be as simple or extravagant as you wish. Suggestions for backward party elements include backward nametags, backward relay races and a banner that reads, “Birthday Happy!” Serve the birthday cake first and the main fare toward the end of the event. Favors wrapped in upside down paper make fun parting gifts for guests as they leave – walking out backward, of course.
