  • While little boys want to enjoy the vibe of the carnival or the fun of sports when celebrating their birthdays, little girls will often request for a princess-themed or a unicorn-inspired celebration. If you’re planning an unforgettable bash for your child, know that you’re options are not limited to decorating with crowns and pastels. Party planning has evolved over the years, and there are different birthday party ideas you can execute.

    Planning your little girl’s birthday party isn’t as stressful as you might think. Having a list that details your concept, target date, possible venues, and people to invite can keep you from getting overwhelmed. Many event coordinators and stylists suggest planning the party at least eight weeks or two months in advance. This gives you and your event coordinator (should you decide to work with one!) enough time to source, coordinate, and confirm the suppliers. On the plus side, the earlier your preparations begin, excitement will build up, and you’ll have less to think about as the day of the party approaches.

    Princess Lagrama of Pretty Little Details Events and Styling advises parents to think out of the box. “Don’t limit yourself. You can mix and match themes and have a touch of what your baby loves to read, watch, or play with. For example, mermaids and unicorns, Scandinavian princess, and such. You can always ask for help from your chosen stylist to make it more memorable and special for your little one,” she shares.

    What are birthday party ideas for your girls that you can consider?

    With the ton of party themes to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one! Depending on what your little girl prefers, you can get creative with princess-themed, mermaid-inspired, and unicorn-themed parties! Schedule a bonding session with your daughter and help her pick just one idea for the celebration. Show her photos and explain how having one theme can make it easier to choose decorations, souvenirs, desserts, and even games!
