For balloons use fun colorful balloons and lots of them. Don’t be afraid to use many different colors – use the whole rainbow of colors!

If you choose you can use a kid theme, like your favorite kid’s cartoon from when you were a kid – be it Muppets, CareBears, He-Man, Rainbow Bright, etc.

Streamers & Banners:

The streamers and banners can also go with the balloons if you chose a cartoon based theme.

If you chose to just use lots of fun colors, then drape lots of colorful streamers and make your banners bright and colorful.

Dinnerware & Utensils:

Again, you can go with that cartoon character if you chose that – get plates and napkins with Rainbow Bright on them (or whichever character you chose).

If you just want fun colors make everything a different color.

For example:

Cups: Fire Engine Red
Plates: Bright blue
Utensils: Yellow and Green
Napkins: Purple or Pink

Have a bright cake with fun colored candles on it. Or have a cake in the shape of your favorite toys or characters from when you were a kid. If you like fire trucks have a fire truck cake. If you liked pink and princesses, have a cake in the shape of a princess crown or something.


What is something all kids love? CANDY!

Have your centerpiece be something like a vase or jar filled with candy and lollipops.

You can even make it look like a plant. Use a pot with grass in it and put in a bunch of lollipops (big and small) to look like flowers.


Get those bulk invitations they sell at the dollar store for kids. They usually have different characters or cartoons on them, with blank spaces to have the information put in. If you have a young child or grandchild, have them fill in the information so it looks like the invitations were from a kid – as well as the party being themed like a kids party.
