10 Fun Kids' Birthday Party Themes


Retro Themes

If your birthday boy or girl is nostalgic for the good old days of poodle skirts, beach blanket bingo or the fab four, you can easily turn a fascination with the past into a party theme. Use old movie posters, images of iconic movie stars and era specific music to put some sizzle into a teen's birthday celebration. Make the proceedings a costume party, and have guests come as someone recognizable from the target era. Offer prizes for the most creative costumes. Have classic movies playing on your big screen, or host a not-so-current events trivia game. You're bound to find something fun and funny to showcase whether you're spoofing the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s or later. Planning a 1960s party? Why not serve a Flower Power Cake or two. They're fun, friendly and easy to make.
