I confess: I have a love-hate relationship with planning birthday parties for my kids. While picking a theme can be fun, I also find it a little exhausting to sift through website after website looking for cool activities for a superhero party or the perfect decorations for a tween girl’s sleepover bash.
One Charming Party offers nine different party themes, ranging from a baking party for older kids to a superhero party or dinosaur party for active little ones. Purchase one of the party packages, and you’ll get a PDF magazine full of beautifully photographed yet still totally doable party ideas (promise!) that you can then replicate for your own bash.
I’m pleased to find that this isn’t just an idea book. In addition to
the 50+ page PDF booklet, you’ll receive adorable themed invitations you
can print from home, often along with ways to package them for the
cutest “special delivery.” There are also printable thank-you cards and
other little extras too that vary by party, like printable food tags and
banners which I just love for giving my parties a little extra polish.
I also love the cupcake-liner garland from the Baking Party theme for its genius simplicity. And while the 8-layer rainbow cake from the Art Party theme is way out of my league, I love the neat alternate idea of creating cupcakes that are mini works of modern art.
you won’t need to hire a team of 25 decorators and a professional
frosting artist, or gain access to a Swiss bank account to afford any of
