When planning a birthday party there are a lot of things to take into consideration. Where you’ll have it, the theme of the party, and how many guests are just a few things to think about. When you choose to have an outdoor party, the birthday party ideas are endless. Here are few that can help you get started.
On those hot summer days nothing says party like a great pool party. Decorate the backyard with some palm trees, beach balls, balloons, streamers, and tiki lamps to give it an authentic atmosphere and look. If you can find them, serve drinks in pineapple or even coconut cups. The pool is a great place to host a volley ball match or even a duck race, where everyone pushes a rubber duck by the nose from one end of the pool to the other end. For a real hit, host a squirt gun battle, team against team.
Another summertime fun birthday party idea for all ages is the Luau. You can create a tropical paradise in your backyard with inflatable palm trees, tiki lights, grass tablecloths or runners. Have your guests dress in grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts and put a lei around their neck when they arrive. Games are easy as you can have hula dancing, limbo contest, and even a hot potato game using a coconut.
Young boys and girls alike enjoy a bit of extreme sports today, skateboarding and biking is a big hit with them. Renting a skate park can allow them to have a good time under supervision, skating and riding the afternoon away. If that isn’t a possibility, create games using the skateboards and even a scooter, like relay races. If a TV is available, set it up outdoors with a game system and a few skateboarding and extreme sports games and hold a contest.
Everyone loves a circus and they are perfect for a birthday party. Lots of colorful balloons, streamers, and circus themed deco will set the mood while the guest of honor is dressed in a ring master outfit. Clowns are a necessity and you can hire one or have friends dress up to entertain the kids. Games with prizes are always a big hit, try for a bean bag toss for the little ones.
Set up an Olympic theme birthday party where everyone can be a winner. Young and old can compete in obstacles courses, relay races, and long jumps, where the birthday boy or girl can score them and award the medals at the end of the day. Making sure everyone goes home with a special medal will be a reminder of the fun from that day.
A theme that isn’t used so much today but is still great fun is a Wild West birthday party. This is especially fun for kids although adults have a good time too. Have everyone dress up like cowboys and cowgirls, complete with hats and cowboy boots. Red tablecloths, horseshoes, and some hay will create the atmosphere of a real rodeo, and don’t forget some western music. You can have everyone square dance, pin the tail on the horse, a rope throwing contest, and if possible a pony will bring everything together.
Having the right atmosphere and theme for the birthday party ideas can make all the difference in the amount of fun and success it brings. You can easily create a tropical paradise, a dude ranch, and even a circus in the backyard quickly. And, these easy birthday party ideas are sure to please the young and old birthday boy or girl.
