5 Birthday Party Themes for Kids

Birthdays are a time to celebrate! Each year, whether you are excited to be another year older or not, your birthday will come around, so why not have a fun-filled party? When you were a kid, you probably counted down the days until your next birthday party. There are few things more fun than a big birthday part with games, snacks, excitement, and friends! One of the key factors for throwing an entertaining birthday party is choosing the perfect theme, and Rocky Mount Event Center wants to help! Here are five of our favorite birthday party themes.  


Who doesn’t want to be a superhero when they grow up? Now you can! With a superhero-themed birthday party, you can bring all the superpowers to life with fun games, costumes and toys. This party theme allows everyone coming to the party to dress up as their favorite superhero — or maybe even a supervillain!


Eye patches, pirate hats, and hidden treasure chests will be ubiquitous in this awesome birthday party theme! With a fun cake design and pirate-inspired decorations, everyone at the party will feel like they are aboard a pirate ship. Come up with fun games like ‘walk the plank’ or ‘pin the parrot on the pirate’ to get the whole party involved!


Growing up, almost every girl wants to be a princess. Why not give them a chance for their birthday party? Princess costumes, sparkly cupcakes, and tiaras will give your party-goers a chance to experience the princess lifestyle for a day. 


This birthday party theme is for boys and girls who want to be transported to the African plains and see some wild animals! Make this birthday party fun for everyone as they show up in different animal costumes. Adults should be able to have fun too, by dressing up as the safari guides as they watch the animals run around all day! 


A sports-themed birthday party offers endless opportunities for fun outfits, games, and entertainment. With so many different types of sports, use the birthday party to try them all out! The party-goers can dress up as their favorite sports player and bring a ball to throw or kick around during the party. If you are decorating your cake, try and use the icing to match the birthday boy or girl’s favorite sport!
