Let’s be real: Most of our best childhood memories are created at birthday parties. Here are the top 5 birthday party trends that are guaranteed to amaze your child and create lifelong memories this coming year!
Nature themes- It’s never too early to teach our kids the importance of protecting and nurturing our planet. In 2018, we’ll see a shift towards nature-themed parties. For instance, a gardening party encourages kids to learn how to plant and grow their own food. Another lovely theme is a composting party where kids create compost kits to take home with them. All in all, these themes bring awareness to reducing our carbon footprint and encourage kids to be active participants in saving our planet. It’s a win win!
Balloon Brilliance- Balloon bouquets and statement pieces are classic and aesthetically pleasing with big impact. They set a lavish tone for any birthday party. They are stylish, colourful and customized to suit just about any theme. I like to go big when creating balloon bouquets or statement pieces. And as a bonus, you can cut off individual balloons at the end of the party to send home with the kids! Big Hit!
Emoji Everything- It’s a fact: kids love emojis! We live in a time where emojis are literally everywhere! The endless emoji possibilities will give party guests inspiration to create funny scenarios and take crazy photos. The party will be full of vibrant colours and definitely a whacky, silly good time!
Magical Unicorns- Unicorns are alive and well and dancing their way through birthday parties everywhere. These whimsical creatures make for a magical, dreamy party. Your child’s imagination will take them away to far away lands of meadows, rainbows and pastels. Oh so dreamy indeed!
Food & Drink- First birthday parties will look more and more like cocktail receptions in 2018. This is likely the only birthday party where mamas and papas can choose the theme, mingle and enjoy some adult time with their closest friends and family. Indulge in good wine, craft beers, a cheese platter and scrumptious appetizers. Oh and don’t forget a decadent cake, your baby only turns 1 once after all, so live it up! You won’t regret it!
