Birthday Party Ideas For Girls

Disclosure: This post may include affiliate links. As an affiliate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

A couple of weeks ago I posted my Birthday Party Checklist because my daughter’s birthday is coming up. In the process of planning for her birthday, we had to decide on a theme. I’ll reveal our final decision in next week’s post with plenty of pictures and instructions to recreate the theme, but today I’d like to share with you some of the best girl themes I found (hint–my tomboy daughter eventually opted for something less gender specific).

My Little Pony

Both of my daughters (and most of their friends) went through a phase where they were obsessed with My Little Pony. If you have a daughter, at some point, this will be a very popular theme with her and her friends. KC over at The Real Thing With the Coake Family put together an amazing party using this theme and she shares all of her food and decorating ideas with a link to free printables.

Lalaloopsy Dolls

After my younger daughter outgrew My Little Pony, she fell in love with Lalaloopsy dolls. What’s not to love? They’re colorful, quirky, and even the name is fun to say. As it turns out, Lalaloopsy is a great birthday party theme, as Holly from Ribbons & Glue shows us.

American Girl Dolls

Then, of course, came the phase that I had hoped my daughters might skip — American Girl Dolls. Don’t get me wrong, I love the stories and values espoused by the American Girl dolls, I just didn’t like the price tag that accompanied them. If you’re going to splurge on the doll and/or some accessories, it seems like a big celebration is in order so you might as well time it with your daughter’s birthday and invite all of her friends. Ty and Stephanie at Mama of 3 Munchkins provide some great advice and lots of tips.

Alice In Wonderland

When I was a girl, my nose was always buried in a book. My favorite for a while was Alice in Wonderland. I would have loved to have gone to a party like the one on Living on Love and Cents.

My favorite girly birthday party I have been to as a mom, was a rainbow-themed party my friend threw for her daughter. Carol at Frugal Foodie Mama shows you how to recreate this theme for your own colorful daughter.

Little ones are also mesmerized by ladybugs. Maybe because red is my favorite color and I love anything polka-dot, the ladybug theme seems like an obvious choice to me. So here’s another party from Holly at Ribbons & Glue that incorporates these adorable critters into everything from the invitations to the party favors.

Pearls And Pinwheels

Finally, I fell in love with this party idea when I first saw it because it’s NOT a well-established theme already. So, if you have a daughter that likes to be unique and doesn’t want to have a party based on a well-known icon, this Pearls and Pinwheels party will be right up her alley.

I hope you found an idea you love, or at least got an idea to help you plan your own daughter’s next birthday party. 

Please come back next week and see what my daughter chose for her theme. I’ll have lots of pictures and ideas to share with you–I promise! And PLEASE share your own great theme ideas for girls’ birthday parties in the comments. Do you have a favorite theme from the ones above?
