CHRISTMAS BIRTHDAY PARTY
A Christmas birthday can be tons of fun. If your child's birthday falls on or around Christmas, check out the party our elves have been working on for your little one! So you don't
get snowed under with all the details, we have plowed the path straight to a stress free, joyful occasion.
Picking a theme is first up. You may opt for the general Christmas Birthday theme or you can choose a specific theme such as Charlie Brown Christmas or
Snowman. Take a look at our Christmas Party section. There are oddles and gobs of great ideas that will help you with your party planning. Then you
can add the birthday touches such as this personalized birthday banner.
A great example of a party
that can be Christmas AND birthday in one is Candyland. You can find plenty of sweet ideas in
our Candyland theme section as well as our special Christmas section. Send out Candyland birthday invitations like these or make
your own by cutting out shapes of peppermint candies or gingerbread men. Fill the room with red, white and green
balloons as well as Candyland theme birthday mylars. For crafts, set out gingerbread houses for the kids to decorate. You can also organize a candy gift swap amoung the group. Send the guests home with plenty of candy and Christmas favors in the
treat bags. Candyland Birthday items, like the ones below, will help distinguish the party as being a birthday party but a few fun Christmas touches will add the best of both, Christmas and
birthday. Birthday Express carries the complete Candyland line and is quite reasonable.
Mickey Mouse is another character that works well for a Christmas birthday party. These
red Mickey silouette balloons can be mixed with white and green solids
for a very festive Christmouse effect. The cake can bring the two, birthday and Christmas, together just by adding a candy cane striped candle or any Christmas touch. Bake up some cupcakes and
sprinkle them with red and green confetti sprinkles then place them on the Mickey Mouse cupcake stand. Be sure to add plenty of Mickey Mouse birthday party items around. Birthday in a Box is a
great place to shop for Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Minnie Mouse supplies.
Older children will enjoy a sleep over. And yes, even boys do slumber parties! Plug in a marathon of Christmas movies
and fill the hungry guests up with
red and green popcorn balls. Let the group go out caroling or on a scavenger hunt for Christmas items(with neighbors that you know).
In our family, Mykala is the Christmas birthday child. At first we were feeling sorry for her, having a birthday so close to Christmas. Then we realized how much fun
we could add to her parties by making it double fun, a Christmas and birthday mix! We've had tons of fun so far and I must say...so has she.
Don't forget to check out our Christmas party and birthday theme sections for super suggestions.
With our tried and true ideas and some creativity of your own, your little Christmas star may just have the merriest birthday ever!
