There are many things to consider when choosing a party theme. This article looks to address some questions that you may want to ask regarding choosing a party theme for your child’s party.

1. Is the party for a Boy or Girl? This may seem obvious, but you need to consider if you are having a party for mostly boys or girls. This can and probably will dictate which way you start your party planning.

2. Characters. Try to ask your kids what cartoon or television characters are popular right now. These trends seam to change so often that it can be difficult to keep up with who is popular and who is not. There is nobody better than your kids at knowing what is hot at this very moment.

3. Colors. Perhaps your kids want just colors to be the theme. This will often make your birthday party even easier. This is a great option for parties that involve both boys and girls. Stick with neutral colors in this case for the best possible results at your birthday.

4. Ease. Choose a party theme that will be easy to execute. Don’t pick anything too obscure or exotic. For example, if your child wants to have a party themed around a specific animal, it may be difficult to pull off. Perhaps stick with a popular animal like a lion or zebra to make it a little easier on yourself.

5. Party Supplies. Check out your local party supply store to make sure that supplies are readily available for your party. These stores can be a great starting point for you as well. They have tons of themes and materials that you can use for your party.

6. Rentals. Have you considered consulting with your local party rental company for your event? These companies often have a lot of experience with party planning and may offer some valuable advice for you in your planning venture.
