Spring has finally arrived, with longer, brighter days and what better way to throw your child a party than to have it outside in the spring sunshine!
 
With pretty flowers starting to blossom and the weather not too hot, spring is a great time to have a party outside either in a garden or a park.
 
Here are the top three children’s themes for a fabulous spring party:

 
1. A Flower Garden Party:
 
This is probably more tailored to girls than boys, but there is no reason why especially younger boys wouldn’t enjoy this party theme too.
 
Send out invitations with a flower theme or be creative and make your own with lots of art and craft materials. This is sure to impress your party guests!

 
You can also make your own flower decorations using tissue or crepe paper and string them up to make flower chains which can be hung between trees, bushes or fences.
You can also buy paper lanterns with a flower design which look great outdoors too.
Try grouping together some coloured balloons to form a flower shape.
 
Lay out the party table with flower themed tableware. You can decorate the table with real petals as confetti or have a fresh flower bouquet centre piece.
 
If you haven’t hired a party entertainer there are many fun things you can do to keep the kids entertained that fit in well with this theme, such as:
 
Get Crafty – kids can decorate flower pots, or make paper bouquets.
Play games such as Relay races with watering cans, Pin the Petal or Bee on the Flower.
Face painting or Flower Tattoos

 
For food, you can make delicious cupcakes and decorate them with frosting and fondant flowers. Cut sandwiches into flower shapes or make flower shaped biscuits.
 
As a unique party gift, if the children have decorated a flower pot you can add some flower themed gifts like a packet of flower seeds, flower design accessories and some sweets and place each pot on a plain cellophane bag and tie each one with a ribbon.
Children love to be rewarded for their efforts!
 
 
2. Bugs & Insects Theme Party:
 
Make your own Bug or Insect design invites and don’t forget to tell your guests to come dressed as their favourite creepy crawly!
 
Make card cut outs of various bugs, such as lady birds, caterpillars, spiders, beetles, butterflies, dragonflies and bees which you can easily dangle from tree branches and bushes.
 
Adapt games to fit the theme, such as Pin the Spider on the web or Pin the Wings on the Butterfly.
 
Be creative with the party food. Chocolate Rice Crispy cakes topped with a jelly worm will go down a treat. Juice could be labelled as ‘Bug Juice’ or Sausage rolls as ‘Bug rolls’, but be careful not to put children off eating the food!
 
 
 
3. Teddy Bears Picnic Theme Party:
 
This is a wonderful theme for a spring party, especially for younger children.
 
Instead of asking each guest to bring along their favourite teddy or soft toy, they can make their own teddy as part of the entertainment. There are many easy to make soft toy kits available. Parents can also get involved and help out too!
 
Lay out a good sized blanket or tablecloth on the grass ready for the picnic feast.
As an alternative to plates, use party food boxes. They come in a range of bright colours and various themed designs and are great to fill with sandwiches, party snacks and a carton of juice.
 
Take along a ‘Pass the Lucky Dip box’, which is filled with pre-wrapped gifts. When the music stops they pull out a gift!
 
As party gifts, each child can take home their Teddy creations. You could also buy small wicker baskets with handles which can be decorated with ribbon and filled with treats and a piece of birthday cake.
