Happy Bee-day 🐝
One of our awesome birthday theme ideas is 'Happy Bee-day', an adorable theme for your little one to enjoy!
Whilst we believe this theme works best for one-year-olds or toddlers, it can work for any age and it's an awesome gender neutral option. Decorations for this theme can include:
⭐️ Lots of yellow and black decorations
⭐️ Honey related decor - even dipping your toes into Winnie the Pooh themes
⭐️ A beehive cake, or a giant bee!
Here are some awesome Pinterest images of ideas for the 'Happy Bee-day' theme if you're interested in learning more!
Tea for 2 🫖
We love this adorable theme for two year olds! Some of the most awesome themes (as you'll come to notice) are themes with a fun relation to age - and this is one of our favs!
'Tea for 2' is a fun way to head any which way with decorations - you could go for the classic tea party look, or even take a twist with an Alice in Wonderland inspired day. We prefer the classic - but don't shy away from inviting our Fairytale Friend, Alice, for your special day! Some ideas for this theme are:
🐇 Serve the birthday kid's favourite drink in tea cups instead of regular cups
🐇 Enjoy some classic sandwiches including fairy bread!
🐇 Hang teacups from the ceiling (or decorate pictures of teacups) for a wonderland twist
🐇 Use decorations to turn your backyard into a whimsical garden!

What three year old doesn't love a good ol' dinosaur! This party theme is perfect for a magical atmosphere whilst also being an epic gender neutral option appealing to all kids!
'Three-rex' is an awesome theme with different colour options and lots of epic decor ideas to choose from. The decoration can be rustic and fun with nature additions, and of course heaps of dinos roaming! Our favourite ideas are:
🦕 Puns everywhere! On the food table you could have ham and crackers for the 'carnivores', veges and fruit for the 'herbivores', and even 'ice aged' water!
🦕 Create a sand digging site, let the kids go wild searching for bones and treasure
🦕 For party favours, you could let everyone adopt their own dino! (adoption certificates and all)
🦕 Invite our very own Dr. Dino to come and teach the kids a lesson about the extinct dinosaurs!
