Birthday Party Guide

Birthday Party Guide

What were birthday parties like for you as a kid? If you’re anything like us, birthday parties were magical, super fun and usually pretty stripped back in comparison to the types of kids parties we all see today.

In honor of our ninth birthday this month, we have found some of the most fun birthday party inspo that pulls in some of the good, old-fashioned fun we so loved as kids ourselves. These are the parties that we would have wanted to attend as kids but also appeal to us as parents now.


  1. Camp Under The Stars 


If you are anywhere in the world where the weather is nice enough for camping right now, count your lucky stars. We love this idea of camping with a twist. Think bbq, campfire and yummy s’mores…but add in the modern day tent and creature comforts and we call it a win-win!


  1. Celebrate at the Cinema

A birthday party staple when we were growing up and one that never disappoints. A trip to the cinema with your friends and a giant box of popcorn followed by cake and ice cream…show us a kid who wouldn’t love this!


  1. An Artistic Twist

We absolutely love this idea….a canvas, apron and painting session for the kids that leaves them with their very own birthday party souvenir to take home and hang in their room. What a brilliant way to get their creative juices flowing and shine a light on the arts!


  1. Good Old-Fashioned Scavenger Hunt

What better way to bring a group together for bonding, and a bit of healthy competition, than with a scavenger hunt. This is such a birthday party classic and one that we think still carries a lot of weight with kids today. Get them off the devices and out and about having fun, finding clues and competing to be the ultimate winners.


  1. A Party With a Difference


 If you are really looking for a unique party idea that will make a big impact, we love the idea of a philanthropic themed party where your kids can really understand the power of giving and what difference they can make in this world. In 2020 (pre COVID), Founder of Me & Riley, Emma, teamed up with us to create a giving party centred around Dumyé dolls and our giving mission.

As our parting party favor, we want to leave you with this…

Birthday parties are such a wonderful, memorable part of childhood. Parents…try and take the pressure off yourselves as much as possible. You’d be amazed by what our children will think is just incredible. Make their party for them, not what Pinterest or Instagram are telling you it should be. This will be more than enough and leave them with memories for a lifetime!
