By the time January rolls around, most of us are exhausted, partied out, fearful of nearing the kitchen… but what about the January birthdays? With all of the holiday hustle and bustle, most of us are likely to forget to plan until the last minute!! Fortunately, here are a few simple, quick to throw together party ideas for you to use:
- Winter Snow Party: If snow abounds, this one theme will be easy-peasy. Order a winter party supply set, make snowball invitations, and rile the kids up with activities like Snowball Wars, Snow Fort Building, Snowman contest, sledding, and Snow Angels. Serve up hot chocolate, leftover candy canes, and sandwiches cut into snowball shapes. Like I said, “easy peasy.”
- A Princess Day: while it may sound a bit prestigious, it makes for a surprisingly great last-minute party idea. Order your favorite princess party pack, whip up some fruit parfaits and petite fours, and let the girls play dress-up, make-up, and craft royal fans out of construction paper, glitter, and markers.
- Cars & Trucks: Choose your favorite vehicle theme and roar the party to life with invitations decorated with stickers, burgers and fries, and simple activities like piñatas, ‘Red Light, Green Light,’ and toy car racing
- Luau: Winter is the perfect time to dream of warmer places, so why not a tropical party indoors? With beach music, tangy pineapple pork and rice, and colorful aloha party supplies, you’ll forget the winter blues, but don’t forget the leis!
January birthdays can be special and fun, even if planned at the last minute.
