As the weather heats up and the kids are enjoying vacation, summer is the perfect time to throw a backyard or park party. Birthday Party Characters has a wide selection of characters available that will fit perfectly with your themed event. Here are some of our favorite ideas for awesome summer birthdays.


Luau party

Everyone loves a luau! Decorate with lots of bright colors, bamboo mats, and fancy tiki drinks. Have hula skirts and leis for your party guests, or better yet, have them make their own! Creating leis out of colorful paper is a fun activity that’s easy enough even for preschoolers. Check out this great paper lei tutorial from The Crafting Chicks. Our Hula Girls can make an exciting addition to your event as well. From leading the limbo to a fun hula-inspired dance lesson, Hula Girl will keep your guests smiling and having a great time.


Under the Sea party

An under the sea-themed party is a great idea for your story tale-loving son or daughter. Seashells of all shapes and sizes are a must for festive decorations, and green streamers work wonderfully as “seaweed” hanging from the ceiling. Try serving fish-shaped crackers and gummy sharks in fishbowls! I love this delightful mermaid-themed clothes pins craft project (via Disney Family). Another fun idea: try hiding a wooden box filled with prizes and lead the kids on a treasure hunt! Check out Allora Handmade for some great tips for creating the perfect treasure hunt as well as some awesome pirate craft activities. Be sure to hire pirates or a mermaid to complete your event!

Circus party

A Circus party is a great theme for both boys and girls and is one of the simplest to decorate! Bright primary colors and stripes will make your party festive and fun. Try a craft activity like these adorably wacky clown hats from First Palette. Another great idea for birthday party entertainment: be sure to hire a friendly clown and serve classics like popcorn, hot dogs, and cotton candy made fresh and easy with concession machines.

Keep these tips in mind while arranging for summertime birthdays this year and you’ll be glad you did. As always, if you ever need any tips or ideas, give us a call. We are happy to help!
