Kids birthday party ideas are hard to come up with! For my daughter’s 5th birthday party, I asked her what she would like for a theme. She mentioned that she wanted to be able to get her nails painted, so I thought it would be fun to create a spa themed kids’ birthday party.

The color palette for the party was inspired by the invitation. I chose to use the Multicolor Celebration kids’ birthday invitation from Pear Tree Greetings, because of the bright, bold colors and the fact that I could include pictures of the birthday girl on the invitation.Kids Birthday Invitations -- Multicolor Celebration
After choosing the invitation, I enlisted the help of my party-planning sister to create the decorations. She decided to create a backdrop out of bold colored paper chains, a polka-dot table cover, and mason jars lined with glitter to hold the utensils.

For the party, we had three stations, including decorating flip-flops with colorful ribbons, foot soaking with manicures and pedicures, and a make-up station. Each station included signage in a custom frame.

To top off the decor, we used the Round Gingham kids birthday favor stickers to accent the cups and the Big Numbers for Girls kids birthday favor stickers for the gift bags.

To thank each girl, I chose the First Big Party thank you cards for my daughter to use. I loved this design because I was able to feature a picture from the party to share with all of her friends.Thank You Cards -- First Big Party
The party was a big hit with all of the girls and they all loved being pampered. It was amazing to see how the birthday party ideas all came together, inspired by the invitation and using different decorative elements.
