It was quite a tough task for me to list down some good birthday party ideas for girls as i have hardly attended only two girls birthday party.
But yesterday when i got a mail from a woman who was asking me about some good suggestions for her young daughter’s birthday party, then i thought to give it a try. I research over few places and ask other people’s personal experience for this.
So with a bit of some efforts from my side, i was able to make a huge list of ideas from party themes to decorations to games to activities.
Initially, i was a bit skeptical about whether should i write on this topic or not but as soon as i started researching over, i found that it is the most interesting topic that i was postponing from quite a long time.
There is always some special thing about writing it for kids and as today the topic is on girls then i am half way more excited for this as you all are. So let me come to the point, as what i have for you here.
Here i will give you ideas and suggestions for almost like everything that you need to make the party awesome and memorable. I will give you ideas for.
With all these ideas you will be able to make a perfect birthday plan for our princess.
Birthday party ideas for girls
Below you will find all the ideas that will help you plan an awesome birthday party for any girl. These ideas are shortlisted after researching over many forums and also asking few people who have experience of planning a girl’s birthday party. So stay tuned there is a lot more to come.
1. Fashion queens
This is a very interesting activity which girls would love to get involved in. This activity is based on girls interest and thus they will enjoy every bit of it.
In this activity you have to divide the girls into teams and give them fashion props (dresses, makeup-kit, high heels, lipstick, nail paint, etc.). Let suppose there are 12 girls and you have divided them into 4 groups that means 3 in one group.
So what they have to do is, one will be model and the other two will help her make the best looking possible in sense of fashion. Give them a time limit to make it more interesting.
That means they have to prepare themselves within the certain period of time. At the end, the model of each team will come on stage and just give a ramp walk to show how she has been styled.
The birthday girl will be a judge and will decide who is looking more fashionable and stylish and thus the winner will be decided. This activity will involve all guests and also centered around the birthday girl as she will be the judge.
2. Drama Box
Divide the guests into teams. Let me explain it with 14 participants for example. Divide the 14 participants into 7 teams that means each team will have two members.
Now for this game you must have equal no. of boxes with some props in it. That means if there are 7 teams then you must have 7 boxes, each with different props.
Give each team one box and let them open up the props. After they open up all the props give them some time to prepare an interesting skit based on the props they get and you can make the birthday girl judge.
3. Instagram inspired themes
These days even young kids are also up to date in the app world and the biggest example is Instagram. Yesterday i checked one tag, where i found a profile of a cute young girl( she must be around 10). Her profile was full of her pictures.
Then i thought this can be a source of inspiration for the theme too. Instantly i opened up the browser and found that yes there is already an Insta-inspired theme, specially for girls.
In this theme, you can have all decorative materials inspired by Instagram (i.e pictures, its logo, dummy camera, etc..). Cake can also be designed in a shape of the Instagram logo.
- Here you can explore more birthday themes for your girl’s party.
4. Alice in Wonderland
The name in itself is so fascinating to girls. If you know about the Disney animated musical fantasy flick released in 1951 that is still in for the girls of today’s generation.
This theme is full of colors and decorations as you can see in the movie as well and you will get to know how delightful it seems, all the frames of the movie with different colors.
For this theme, you can do a lot of things like arranging some activity or skit related to the movie itself. You can have some candies and cookies as the treasure of this wonderland party. You can invite all cute kids in get up of all the characters of the movie to make the party more happening.
5. Why not a sleep over party
I still remember my childhood days whenever i used to get permission for sleepover parties from my parents, i can’t explain it in words, how i use to feel like.
I know kids love sleepover parties so why don’t you allow your daughter and her friends to have a sleepover party in the house. I am so sure about it that she will love you for this and her birthday will be memorable.
You can arrange games for the sleep over party or you can arrange the music system in the room where they can dance and enjoy.
6. Vintage Girlie Superhero Party
You must be thinking that this theme sounds interesting, yes it is. Is she more influenced by cartoon characters or heroic characters, if so then you got to have this theme in your list. This theme is all about having the fantasy world let in the party and have girls to be part of it.
For this theme, you can arrange for some games related to superhero women or some activities where they can involve themselves as superheroes.
7. Cake decoration
Let the cake be very impressive to the girl. There are many things you can do about it. Do you know what is her favorite thing, does she love cartoons, does she love music or is she a fan of a celebrity. If you know what she is more interested in, then why don’t you decorate the cake inspired from it.
For example, if she is a big fan of lady gaga then you can get the cake to be decorated inspired from lady gaga.
If she loves barbie dolls then you can get it done around that it. With all this done you can also use the cake top as the no. of years she will be on her coming birthday.
8. Minute to win it games
I always recommend a minute to win it games specially for kids as this kind of games are very exciting to be played and also they are interesting, fun and thrilling also. If you have seen the TV series of Minute to win it then you might have got what i am talking about.
There are several minutes to win it games, you can pick any which you think is perfect suitable for the girls. These kind of games are easy to play and are meant to be completed in a time limit of sixty seconds that makes it more fun and thrilling.

9. City tour party
We all do house parties but have you ever thought about a city tour party. Can you imagine how excited the kids will be to roam around the city.
Recently i have written a post where i have shared the same ideas for the young kids and surprisingly many parents replied with a positive response for the same.
So for this what you can do is, book an open bus for the young girls or if the open bus is not possible then you can go for the normal bus used for picnics. Plan few destination places for the city tour ( places that are really interesting to them).
Let them enjoy the travel also in the bus with music, small games and activities. Believe me they will remember this day for years and thus it makes the day memorable.
10. Barbie girl theme party
If she loves barbie girl then let the theme be inspired from barbie girl. I have found that many small girls like barbie girl dolls. Recently i went to my friend’s house, my friend has a cute little daughter.
When i entered her room it was full of dolls, mostly barbie. She loves dolls and she was telling me all kind of dolls she have. Although i didn’t understand anything but one thing was clear that small girls like dolls and specially barbie girl dolls.
So if you think she also loves dolls then give this theme a chance, i am sure other girls would also love this themed party. You can decorate the venue with ribbons, banners, etc. and make it barbie land. Let them feel the world of barbie.
11. Candy coupons
In childhood who don’t like candies, i am sure she also love candies too, also the other kid guests as well. So here is what you can do with the candies to make the party more lively. Make a candy coupon booklet, make each page of the booklet as a coupon for different candies.
When the guest arrives give one candy coupons to each guest. Tell them that in the mid of the party or at the end, they can use these coupons to buy candies from the candy stall for free. This way they will be more excited through out the party to get the candies.
12. Cooking party
Let the girls enjoy and engage in cooking activities. If you are looking up for some activity that can engage them and have fun, then you can go for this one.
Arrange some food materials for the girls and with some guide to let them make something with that food stuff. To make it more interesting you can bring in some nice aprons and chef hats.
It can be one of the most enjoying birthday party theme for girls. With the attire, they will be more interested in this activity.

18. The creative arts competition and food
A birthday party does not always mean that there has to be dance, music and food and games. Some interesting creative activities can also be organised specially it is a girl’s birthday bash.

Then once you collect all the pages, bind it together with some beautiful ribbons and designs and then gift it to her on her the day. This would be the best surprise birthday gift she can expect from you all.

Sometimes in the fast pacing life we just forget to be in touch with each other, so those are the times when you can again unite with the family. So this birthday give the birthday girl a family reunion.
Invite all your close relatives for the small family gathering, cook some good delicious food. And do keep it in mind that everything should be according to the taste of the birthday girl as it is going to be her day.

Family bonding is essential for girls during their growing time. This way they learn to bond more with others too outside the family.
This family gathering does not need any planned games or activities as the cousins would keep the birthday girl busy with all the chits chats and the fun times.
If the cousins are also girls of her age then that would be more exciting as all the girls together can have their own me time while the elders can enjoy their way.
Family gatherings do bring all together and if it is a birthday then this would be like the cherry on the cake. Plan out the menu and the whom to invite beforehand so that on the day you are free to welcome the family members and not busy arranging everything.
26. A small lunch at the restaurant with her school buddies
Nowadays kids are changing their way of living. So if the birthday girl is a teenager it would be best that she decides on how to celebrate her birthday.
Another best way would be give her some space as now she is a young lady and would want to spend some me-time with her school friends. You just reserve a table for them at their favorite eatery and let be by themselves.
Girls love to chat and gossip and when it school friends together then nothing like it, they would be busy in their own world without any disturbance.
See that the restaurant is at a good place and serves good food at reasonable prices. You have to do a little bit of homework while arranging lunch.
Although it may be her favorite place but the arrangements would need some supervision. Do not forget to keep a surprise birthday cake for the occasion so that she feels complete as it is said that without a cake cutting a birthday party is not complete.
27. A movie day out
Another way the girls can enjoy their birthday is going on a movie day out to the nearby theatre and watch their favorite movie. Popcorns, drinks and laughter would be their companion.
This is another way to help them bond with their friends. You may be working parents so this way nothing has to be arranged or planned for the birthday, and growing girls always prefer to have or do things themselves.
So just talk to the birthday lady beforehand and once she agrees just give her enough cash so that she can invite few of her favourite girl gang for the movie day out.
Let feel that she is not a young lady who can take her own responsibility and enjoy her special day with her friends watching her favorite movie.
28. A visit to the old age home
Girls love to give and share, so this birthday you can give her the best gift by arranging a day with some elderly people in an old age home.
Invite few of her closest friends and then they can together spend a whole day with those elderly people spreading some jot among them.
Do arrange for some food and some fun games, this would not only make them happy but also the birthday girl would learn to share her happiness with others too.
These are the simple yet small ways to contribute to the society and also this way she would learn to take responsibilities too.
The games should be fun enough and also but some gifts for the elderly people so that they can also enjoy the day to the fullest with the princess. The blessings she would be getting would be fully priceless.
29. The bonfire bonanza
Another classic and old charm is the bonfire party and it is always a hit with the girls. Just arrange a lovely bonfire for the night and some good food like the marshmallows and some salty items which can be instantly cooked in the bonfire.
Let the girls have their own time with their friends around the bonfire and have some chit chat of their own. Actually, bonfires are the best way to reconcile with friends and even to make some new friends. Do invite any new girl who has arrived in the neighborhood so that the birthday girl can know more friends.
If the birthday falls during the winter season then the bonfire party would be a superhit, with the chilly breeze and the fire what else a girl would wish for ion her birthday.

30. The walk by nature
If you are lucky enough to have your home nearby a big forest or a sanctuary or even a park with nature then the nature walk is a good way to bond with nature.
So this birthday asl the birthday girl to go on a hiking sort of fun time with her gang in the nearby forest or park. If they are small then you can join them and even ask the other mothers to be a part of the fun.
