Decorating a birthday party according to a theme not only makes it easy to plan, but it also makes it fun!

So to help you find a birthday party theme and appropriate decorations, here are some great ideas that will turn an ordinary birthday into an extraordinary birthday party! But a word of caution to eager buyers, before purchasing birthday party decorations of a particular theme it is important to consider two things; the age appropriateness of the theme and the likes/dislikes of the person whose birthday you are celebrating. So now that you know, here are some great ideas for birthday party decoration themes!
For kids, a birthday party means excitement and color, so don’t disappoint them. A great party theme for children is a fantasy theme; usually a theme from a Disney movie or a favorite storybook will turn any birthday party into a fun-filled festival! A great theme that has been favored by many a little girl has been ‘Cinderella’s Midnight Ball’ and the best part is that it is a theme that can easily be created just by decorating the backyard with lights and elegant streamers and anything that you think will give the theme a truly magical feeling!
Another popular theme in recent years has been the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ theme, and it is amazing to see how backgrounds of wrecked ships, drift wood on lawns and chests overflowing with shining treasure can make the movie jump off the screen and come to life.
Okay, so the kids are grown and no longer enjoy childhood theme parties. Well you still have many, many options for adolescents and young adults, and you may even find yourself enjoying the party too! A favorite birthday theme party among teens and even adults is the ‘Hawaiian Luau’ theme. Grass skirts, coconut bras, tiny umbrellas, tropical shirts, candles on wicker stands, festive garlands, Hawaiian cuisine and even real sand; what’s not to love about this theme! Surely you can understand why this birthday party theme is a classic.
And if the birthday boy/girl just happens to be a little older, you can spice up the party theme by making it an infamous ‘Pool Party’. A crystal clear blue pool heated by warm sunshine makes the best first impression on party guests, and when they see the floating lounges in the pool, sun glasses spread out everywhere and huge beach balls just waiting to be thrown around, your guests will definitely find out first hand exactly how much fun a themed birthday party can be! Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen.
