With the winter we are having in Minnesota, an outdoor party is out of the question. My niece has a March birthday and every year we struggle to come up with indoor birthday party ideas. This year for her 6th birthday we decided to embrace the cold. Our theme was “Baby, it’s cold outside,” and we decided to stay indoors and have each guest create a canvas craft project. We emphasized the theme with snowflakes on our invitations and a hot chocolate bar for the birthday treat!
Pear Tree’s Snow Day Vertical Christmas Cards with white snowflakes printing over the full photo made perfect winter birthday party invitations. We added Avery’s photos and changed the text to spell out the party details to invite everyone to the celebration.
One Charming Party created a ninja themed birthday party using one of our kids birthday invitations. Read on to see all the fun ninja birthday party ideas they came up with to match the theme!
Your sneaky little one will love these fun Ninja Party invitations from Pear Tree Greetings. Available in a color scheme for boy or girl ninjas, this design provides a fresh take on the typical Ninja Party.
Your guests may not believe it, but you can easily make this fun wood party sign without lifting a hammer, nail or saw! Who’s the sneaky ninja now?! The secret is using pre-cut garden stakes and a glue gun for assembly. The stakes come with a point, but when glued side-by-side they create a jagged pattern reminiscent of the cool, die-cut edge on the Ninja Party Invitation. (See the full DIY post here.)

Calle, the birthday girl, had her heart set on a gumball party for about a year– ever since her last birthday, in fact. “After each of her parties she declares what the next party theme is going to be,” says Calle’s mom, Sue. “Usually she never sways, and it stays that way for an entire year.” That excitement is one of the things she loves about her daughter. And coming up with birthday party ideas together makes it more fun.
“I love planning parties, and we always seem to have themes that are not the easiest. Last year she wanted a ski themed party and I ended up having to make the invitations myself. So this year she wanted gumballs. I did a Google search and Pear Tree was one of the only sites to have a gumball machine kids birthday invitations that I could personalize. The price point was spot on as well, for what I wanted to spend.” We like how she added even more personality to the birthday invitations by calling the party, “Calle’s 8th Birthday Blow Out,” with the RSVP on the back, “Will you be popping over?”
It’s obvious that Sue loves to go big on birthday party ideas when you hear what she has planned. “We are giving away mini gumball machines as the favors. I’m making a 3-dimensional gumball machine cake, along with gumball machine cake pops that will be sitting in mason jars filled with gumballs. I also found fabric that has gumballs all over it that I will make into tablecloths. I am still working out the other logistics, but that is where I have gotten thus far.”
We hope everyone (including Mom) has a blast at Calle’s party. Please send us pictures–especially of that cake! We’d love to share them. Keep reading our blog for more kids birthday party ideas, or browse our collection of kids birthday invitations for ideas!
