Food themed birthday parties for kids. AKA No dessert until you finish your milk and cookies.

If you need a break from superheroes and princesses, I’ve got a fabulous kids birthday party idea, and it’s so easy: Food themed birthday parties.

Move over tea parties, we’ve got three new themes worth checking out.

Milk & Cookies Fest
This inspiration board by
Kara’s Party Ideas is the place to start if you want to celebrate your
cookie monster with a milk and cookies-themed birthday party. You’ll
also find fab party ideas on Tea and Lime, including a custom color palette. And I love this vintage take on a milk and cookies theme, complete with printables by custom designers (and CMP favorites) Anders Ruff. Now me especially like coooookkkkiiieee.

Pizza Party

Cooking
is the perfect birthday party activity. No need to be a social director
for this soiree, pizza-making and a simple decorate-your-own-chef’s-hat
craft will keep kids happy until it’s time to chow down. Not sure how
to host a make your own pizza party?
No worries–I hosted one for my son’s 4th birthday and have got you
covered from pizza making through dessert through cleverly themed goodie
bags. (Personalized pizza party printables from Tomkat Studios.)




peachy party
Fruitastic Soirees
Strawberries and cherries tend to get all the glory with kids. And, well, with party possibilities like this sweet strawberry gathering and this retro cherry birthday party, it’s with good reason. But, you know, peaches are mighty fine, too. While you may not go all out like this peachy party, Jessica at Juicy Bits still has inspiring ideas. Maybe for you Atlanta moms?

Have any of you ever thrown a cool food-themed party for kids? We’d love to hear about it!

    My daughter’s 2nd birthday party theme is “Blueberries for Sal” after the book and everything is themed around blueberries.

    I did a ‘make your own pizza’ party for my son’s birthday one year. He’s 31 yrs old now and tells me that was his favorite birthday party ever!
