Throwing a party based around her favorite Disney princess, mermaids, or her favorite cartoon characters is sure to be a big hit, but other party ideas can include backyard adventures, petting zoos, and pony of the rides!

To help you avoid stress and overwhelm when planning and putting together a little girls birthday party we’ve put together this quick guide. Let’s dive right in!

Top 10 Birthday Party for a Girl Themes

  • Disney Princess Celebration – You can’t go wrong throwing a party filled with Disney Princess characters, especially if all the guests get to dress up as their favorite Disney hero. You don’t have to go to Disneyland to throw a great Disney party (but that wouldn’t be a bad idea, either)
  • My Little Pony Parties – Little girls love taking out their favorite Mind Little Pony, and if you want to take things to the next level you could even have arrangements made for a real pony that can be ridden to surprise the birthday girl!
  • Mermaid Pool Party – This is especially fun if the little girl you’re throwing a party for has a birthday in the middle of summer, with all kinds of mermaid decorations and underwater activities planned for party guests.
  • Scavenger Hunt – Putting together a quick backyard scavenger hunt can act as the backbone of a fun and adventure filled birthday party for little girls and little boys.
  • Fairy Tale Parties – Dressing up as your little girl’s favorite fairytale characters in bringing these stories to life is an easy way to throw a birthday party she’ll never forget!
  • Fun and Games – The theme of this birthday is to offer just as many backyard activities and games as possible, encouraging everyone to have fun and to compete with a big emphasis on teamwork.
  • Frozen – Dressing up the birthday girl as either Elsa or Anna and having everyone else play along – maybe with mom or dad dressed as Olaf – is an easy way to throw a great party. Don’t forget to bring a karaoke machine loaded with Frozen songs!
  • Magic and Wizardry – It’s hard to find even just a couple of little kids that don’t love magic, and if you’re willing to go the extra mile and hire a magician to come to the party you’re sure to create lifelong memories.
  • The Incredibles – The second Incredibles movie just came out and kids are falling in love with these characters all over again. Costumes and games that let little girls show off their “superpowers” take this theme over the top.
  • Cupcake and cookie decorating – Pre-bake a bunch of desserts, load up on toppings and frosting, and then let all of the little girls at the party go wild decorating their favorite desserts.

Party Rentals
