We seem to have a birthday Party every weekend at the moment. What I notice when we go to girl´s Birthday Parties, is that there is a general theme of pink, Princesses or Frozen at the moment.
When you have a boy, you wonder just what you can do for a themed birthday party. It took Oliver until he was four to stick with one (ish) theme, as his answer every year had been ´I don´t know,´or ´An Animals, Dinosaurs, Cars party,´ which is pretty difficult to organise.
For Oliver´s first ´proper´ birthday party we decided on a jungle theme
I got a lot of ideas and printables from Pinterest to help with this theme
We live in quite a small town but if you are living somewhere like America, it would be great to get someone with some live animals like a monkey, some tropical Parrots etc to come do a little show for the kids.
Another year, Oliver wanted a Knights and Dragons party.
My old laptop is down so I can’t get hold of the photos of all the little Knights and Dragons bits and pieces we did, but we basically had lots of swords and a table for making your own shields for the boys, and Princess crowns and wands for the girls. We also had an actual Castle Bouncy Castle and lots of Knights and Dragons games. All the food was themed, and we had gold cups and plates aswell as knives and forks.
Here are some of the places I gathered my ideas from.
This year, Oliver was very sure that he wanted a superhero party. He was also sure that it had to be a Spiderman, Batman, Superman Party.
So, we chose as the color theme red black, blue and yellow.

Here is a snippet of some ideas from the board
My Mum and Dad were kind enough to help me make the telephone box as I was still fragile from my Operation.
We made it from an old fridge cardboard box. So simple,yet the kids enjoyed it so much.
