Ideas for throwing a Sofia the First themed birthday party

Throwing a birthday party can be an exciting yet overwhelming experience especially if it is the parents the first time. Hiring a party planner is not necessary as it is costly and the party might not turn out how you envisioned. So here are a few ideas for throwing a Sofia the First themed party.

Get your kid involved

Since it is your child's birthday party, it would be great if you could get her to be involved as much as possible. You could also ask her for opinions so that it will be easier to decide on the items needed for the party. This is because; children can come up with the most imaginative ideas particularly if she has seen Sofia the First series on television.

Make use of Pinterest

There are endless of ideas on Pinterest for you to choose from such as decoration items down to party favours. Create a Pinterest board and save all your favourite ideas that think that you can recreate.

Choose the colours

The colours do not have to be conventional according to your theme. Just because it is Sofia the First, the colours do not necessary have to be only purple and pink. You can always try adding different shades of colours close to the original colours. Not only is it fun to add that element of surprise, it is also a different approach to the themed party. However, it is personally up to your preferred method which is to think outside the box or go the traditional route. Yet again you may make use of Pinterest to narrow down the colours that look good together as well as match the theme.

Pick a location

Whether you choose to throw the birthday party at home or another venue, both locations have their pros and cons. If you plan to have it at home, cleaning up a mess after a party is tedious, especially just having prep the house for it. On the other hand, you may save the cost of having to rent a place and travelling back and forth just to set up the party. But, the benefit is that you do not have to worry about the cleaning up after the party. No matter where it is held, there will definitely be frenzy especially with kids running around.

Gather decoration items according to the colours

Putting up decorations is the most important aspect of a party. First and foremost set up the table with the necessities such as cutleries, cups, plates, and other items. If you wish to match the decorations to the theme but can’t find the right colours, you may simply spray paint it. You may style the table to have an elegant princess look with a nice table cloth while adding flower decorations to it. Another option is to incorporate Sofia the First merchandises such as party packs that come with cups and plates, a “Happy Birthday” banner, stickers and much more.

Create a backdrop

A great background is needed for the party table as it will anchor the rest of the decorations. Generally, it would be advisable to think this through and if possible set it up ahead of time then only plan everything else on the table around it. There are many items that can be used to create backdrops such as a canvas, fabric banners, paper pinwheels or vintage decorations. Be creative as possible with the designs.

Shop online

Certain Sofia the First speciality items can only be found online such as with iPrice. You will be surprised to find a lot of items that will be perfect for a birthday party. There are also plenty of birthday printables that you may utilise for the decoration.

Trade services with friends

Parties can be very tiring to plan, so it would be great to trade services with friends. For example, if you have a friend that is good at baking cakes or cookies, ask them if they are up for a trade with other services and possibly offer them a couple of suggestions too! Perhaps they have young kids and you can offer to watch over them if they are up for it. This will definitely help relieve a lot of stress up till the day of the party.

Plan activities and games

Children, in general, have a very short attention span, so it would be good to keep them from causing havoc with activities and games. Firstly, you want to introduce them to the theme. A photo booth is always a fun activity as they can be silly as possible with the props. It is also a good idea to plan a few outdoor games.
