Planning Great Themed Parties

“One of the things that I love about Your Little Cupcake is that it makes planning a party really simple. The hardest thing I had to do was pick the theme!”

A loyal customer recently came to me for help. Her soon to be three year old daughter is absolutely in love with the Disney Princesses and thought the party was going to be a cinch. She ordered a few dozen castle wrappers , pink flag toppers, and pink castle invitations. But when she started addressing the invitations she realized there were more little boys coming than little girls. Pink might have gone over well for her 1st birthday but her little preschooler needed something more now.
Making a themed party entertaining for everyone isn’t an easy task, especially when the guests have the attention spans of three-year-olds. Birthday’s for young children are relatively simple since the first two birthdays are really catered more to the adults then the children.  Nevertheless, when her daughter came to her with a very specific list of what she wanted at her party she realized she had a problem on her hands.
I sat down at my desk and started pondering the best way to give her little princess the 3rd birthday party of her dreams and yet still make sure the little boys did not suffer from pink overload.
Over the next few weeks, I will be showcasing some of the great birthday sets that will satisfy any picky preschooler and will make Mom and Dad happy too!
