Spring Birthday Party Ideas

Spring is a great time to celebrate being one year older, so brainstorm spring birthday party ideas to jumpstart your planning. Spring birthday party themes can create cohesion for your event. Choose the spring theme based on the guest of honor’s likes and dislikes, age, and hobbies.
Here are some seasonal ideas for spring birthday party themes:

Garden Party

Plan a garden party in your backyard, a local park, or garden. To start, customize online garden party invitations and send from any digital device in minutes. Easily track and manage RSVPs right from your phone.

Serve tea and lemonade for drinks and light refreshments such as finger sandwiches. For dessert, celebrate with flower cupcakes for each guest. Bake vanilla cupcakes in green cupcake cups and once cooled, frost them with pastel colored flower petals using a frosting bag and decorative tip. For party favors, pass out single roses or tulips in small, narrow vases.

Outdoor Fun for Kids

An Outdoor Fun for Kids theme party is a fantastic way to celebrate your child’s birthday. Plan the party either at your house or at a local park. (If at a park, make sure there are restrooms.) Browse a wide range of kids birthday invitations, upload a photo to select designs, and send your invitation by text or email. Begin the party by encouraging the kids to fly kites. This activity will keep them busy until everyone arrives and gets settled. Want to keep it super simple? Get a soccer or softball game going!

Next, plan an arts and crafts activity such as making wind sockets. Visit your local arts and crafts store to purchase colorful cardstock (size 8 ½ x 11), spring themed stickers (flowers, trees, butterflies, sun, bees and birds), glitter, glue, crepe streamers and string. Instruct the children to decorate one side of a piece of cardstock. Once decorated and dry, roll the cardstock into a wide tube, so the decorated side faces the outside, and staple it together. Cut pieces of crepe streamers that are each a foot long. Glue or staple one end of each streamer to the bottom of the tube. Attach a piece of string to the top of the tube to use for hanging the wind socket.

After the wind socket making is complete, serve an easy lunch. Make it simple: Order pizzas and have them delivered to your house or the park. Water bottles and juice boxes make for simple drinks. For dessert, order a large white sheet cake with decorations such as children playing outside. As a party favor, hand out a kite to each child to take home!

Backyard Party

Plan a backyard party to celebrate a special birthday. Pick your favorite backyard birthday party invitation, add important event details, and deliver your invites right from your phone. Hire a local tent company to set up a tent in the backyard. Lay down a hardwood dance floor, arrange for a bar and set up dinner tables for guests. Hire a local DJ or band to perform at the party.

For an informal birthday party, serve barbeque style food such as barbeque chicken, corn on the cob and grilled vegetables. For a formal birthday party, plan for steaks topped with fried onion strands, potatoes with fillings on the side (scallions, shredded cheese, sour cream and bacon bits) and grilled asparagus. Plan either a tiered cake or tiers of cupcakes for dessert. Cupcakes will be easier to serve to guests since they do not involve cutting pieces. At the end of the party hand out favors, such as aprons. For an extra special touch, have the aprons personalized to say, “I had a blast at Lisa’s 30th birthday BBQ bash.” There will be many details to plan for a backyard party, so consider hiring a local caterer or party planner.
