1st Birthday themes can focus on the #1 or characters that are popular with young children. A favorite toy, such as a doll, teddy bear, or truck, can also inspire a fun party theme. More First Birthday Party Ideas!
A Tea Party is great “grown-up” fun and a special way to celebrate birthdays and holidays. A Tea Party can highlight a special toy or book, such as princesses, dolls, teddy bears, Ms. Spider or Alice in Wonderland. Serve bite-size sandwiches, cheese cubes, cookies and decaffeinated fruit flavored teas. More Tea Party Ideas!
If your child is hooked on a super hero, this is the perfect party theme. Thanks to TV reruns and movie remakes many children idolize the old-time superheroes, such as Superman, Spiderman, and Batman. More Super Hero Party Ideas!

Welcome your 13-year-old into his teen years with a cool birthday party celebration he can enjoy with family and friends. Not quite a little kid anymore, but not a full-grown teen, planning a party for a 13-year-old can be a daunting task, even for the coolest, hippest mom.
13-Year Old Party Must Haves
The most important elements of a cool birthday party for a 13-year-old include mood, music and menu. You can create a cool mood by decorating the party area with your teen’s favorite colors. Teens can relax and enjoy a room that looks like a hip, lounge hangout. Achieve this vibe by tossing large pillows on the floor, using a black light to illuminate the room and by decorating the room with glow sticks the kids can take home as favors. Talk to your teen about the type of music he and his friends enjoy listening to and use his suggestions to create a music play list that will last the duration of the party and get party guests out of their seats and dancing. All that dancing is sure to make a bunch of teenagers hungry, so offer a menu that includes crowd-pleasing foods, such as tacos, pizza, nachos, chips and dip, chicken fingers, mini burgers and french fries.
Don’t Over Plan
The older children get, especially once they reach their teen years, the less of a fuss they make about their parties. N.Y. Metro Parents, an online publication for parents, notes that many teens are even willing to skip parties and wait for their Sweet 16 celebrations. A cool party for a 13-year-old doesn’t have to incorporate a fancy theme or elaborate activities. Lisa Kothorai, an author, entrepreneur and kid’s party expert, says that when parents over plan their teens parties, teens may rebel because they’d rather have a simple party where they can just hang out with their friends, chat and enjoy snacks. Add music to the mix, and many teens are happy.
Consider Making the Party Coed
Face it–your 13-year-old is friends with both boys and girls, so consider allowing your teen to have a coed birthday party. Just keep a watchful eye to ensure that all guests are behaving appropriately. If your teen wants to have a sleepover, come up with a designated time for members of the opposite sex to leave the party–ideally, after cake and ice cream are served.
Number of Guests
Leave it up to your teen, and she’ll probably want to invite half of her school to her 13th birthday bash. Keep the guests limited so that you can adequately watch each party attendee, and so that you don’t exceed your budget.
Teens know how to celebrate, and their parties will last as long as the music and food are readily flowing. Schedule your 13-year-old’s party to start in the late afternoon and end at night around 10 p.m.
Christmas is just a few weeks away, and if you’re looking for a fun, interactive and totally unique gift idea for your little one(s), then this post is for you!
And if you’re a Minion fan, then you should most definitely stick around too! 😉
Minion Inspired Party Ideas & FREE Printables
We teamed up with WowWee and got to test-drive their Robo-Toys, which are sure to Spark Your Kids’ Interest – and Imagination!
And as any self-respecting party-lover, I had to style a super adorable party and freebie printables to match the equally adorable Minion MiP Turbo Dave!!
Of course, the WowWee Minion MiP Turbo Dave also makes a great birthday or Christmas present, and an super unique table decor that your kids can enjoy waaaay after the party. That’s what I call a win, win!
Minion Inspired DIY Party Decor
In-keeping with the Minion colors, I chose yellow and blue party decorations like balloons, paper rosettes and honeycomb balls, and casually laid them out on the table to form a colorful garland that doubled also as a backdrop.
This is ideal if you have a table tucked against the wall or for a buffet or credenza, or feel free to hang the decor behind it if you need to.
I used the small Minion MiP Turbo Dave as main table centerpiece, which looked super adorable and the kids get to play with it during the party too!
To add height and interest, I made these Minion inspired candy tubes by filling gumball tubes with candy in yellow and blue to match the party. I then glued a Minion figurine on top of each candy tube. These also can serve as party favors – I love it when decor doubles as something practical! 😍
Minion Inspired Easy Party Treats
For the party sweets and treats we kept things simple – perfect for an impromptu celebration or play date too!
We served Minion-shaped cookies, yellow and blue marshmallows and cupcakes decorated with a printable Minion inspired topper.
For drinks, orange juice is the obvious choice that pairs perfectly with the yellow Minion color. But milk is also a great alternative for the younger kids.
Minion Inspired Free Party Printables
No party of mine is complete without cute printables! These Minion inspired printable decorations are perfect to jazz up any basic tableware you already have, like in the case of our cute drinks bottles! Arren’t they so adorable?
But why stop there?! You could use the FREE templates to decorate plates, backdrops, gifts and more!
We also designed some Minion inspired cupcake or dessert toppers in a rectangular shape, so it’s easier to cut; and cute gift or favor tags to help you embellish your pretty packaging.
And can we take a sec. to appreciate the MinioneseTM (official Minion language) “Para Tu”on the tag?! 😁
Minion Inspired DIY Party Favors & Gifts
To complete the Minion party favor look we added a “Para Tu” gift tag to the front of the bag – Easy as banana pie! 😋
For the birthday child’s present, there’s nothing more appropriate then a super cool Minion MiP Turbo Dave from WowWee – it’s the best RC Minion out there that packs the most features:
* The only full experience robotic Minion that brings the Minion world to life.
* App pairing for robotic programming and AR experience through game play.
* Straight out of Gru’s lair, this motion-detecting, self-balancing henchman is ready to play. Get up to all kinds of mischief with your very own Minion MiP Turbo Dave from WowWee.
* Packed with fun and games, this self-balancing robot speaks MinioneseTM the official Minion language, responds to clapping and hand gestures, and can be controlled from the Turbodave app on your compatible smartphone or tablet!
* He even has his own Fart Blaster! 😆
Seriously, my kids and I LOVED “test-driving” our Minion MiP Turbo Dave, and I can’t recommend it enough for your kid’s Christmas or birthday gift!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the ideas, and feel inspired for your own celebrations! ♥

When it comes to birthday parties, my daughter might want to dream big. However, the reality is our living space is quite small. Fortunately for her, she has a mom who loves to host creative parties; who likes the challenge of figuring out how to make small spaces work no matter what idea she comes up with. These five themes are big on imagination, even if you are short on space. Most of these activities can take place in one room and be personalized to appeal to boys and girls of a variety of ages. Find more tips on hosting a kid’s birthday party in a small city apartment, from keeping the favors simple to curating the guest list.
Mark a 13th birthday with something special that reflects your child’s entrance into adolescence. Ask your child for ideas regarding the theme, activities, menu, guest list and location. For most teenagers, hanging out with friends tops the list of priorities–be it a few close buddies or everyone from summer camp and school. Personalize the event by having guests write notes, draw doodles or contributing a song to a mixed CD that commemorates the special day.
Some 13-year-olds have a blowout with bling–renting limousines, going to spas or having a chaperoned sleepover at a hotel. However, even a simple, affordable at-home birthday party can have razzle dazzle. Project a movie on a large screen or sheet in the backyard, or host a beach bonfire. Fill the lawn with tiki torches and serve Italian sodas spritzed with whipped cream. The details will make the difference between a forgettable event and a special 13th birthday party.
The party basics have not changed, even though your child has entered adolescence. You will still need decorations, music, food, dessert and candles. You also need activities, though more open-ended and not restrictive like games. Your teen will have ideas of how to pass the time, but some possibilities include doing crafts, making ice cream sundaes, having a dance contest, doing a creative scavenger hunt, staging a talent show or filming a movie.
Fun 13th birthday celebrations walk the line between teen freedom and adult supervision. Check in with the goings-on so that guests know of your presence, but do not hover. Young teenagers enjoy the feeling of freedom of a less-supervised event.
Mix some pop culture into a 13th birthday party. Reference “Twilight” with vampire-theme makeovers, or arrange “Survivor”-style physical challenges. Popular bands, shows or fashions may inspire some activities. Have a henna tattoo artist ink up the guests or ask a teenage DJ to mix music for a dance party.
Just as 13 marks a new age, it also marks an extended time frame for special events. Plan a slumber party, a double feature or an activity, such as rock climbing or bowling, that may last up to three hours.
If you’ve ever wanted to go over-the-top for your kid’s birthday party, these outrageous ideas may inspire you. Or…make you shake your head in wonder.
