3 Simple Birthday Party Ideas for Girls

Planning a birthday party for your little girl can seem like a daunting task. Pre-teen girls celebrating their birthdays have varying tastes and interests, so choosing the always critical party theme can be tough.

But fear not! We’ve gathered some simple birthday ideas you can incorporate into planning a birthday party for girls.  Here are some of our best ideas you can take inspiration from – whether it becomes an entire theme or if you just incorporate the ideas as a big part of your party.


A Whimsical Tea Party 

Little girls, who’ve yet to abandon the imaginative play all together, love acting and dressing up like ladies which makes a tea party the perfect birthday party idea for girls. Serve up a fully dressed tea table complete with adorable little treats to nibble on including dainty cucumber finger sandwiches, mini croissants and fairy cupcakes. They’ll love the originality of the food presentation as well as the tastes!


Follow our tips for what bites to serve, how to decorate and crafts for your guests to make. Encourage your guests to borrow their mom’s heels (half an inch, tops!), pearls and a fun hat and your party guests will just love dressing up for this theme party idea.

Weather permitting, we recommend hosting this whimsical girl’s birthday party outdoors!

Dessert Theme Party Idea

If the birthday girl is fan of a particular treat, use that as the focal point for her birthday party. We love this idea of planning a dessert bar that’s also a feast for the eyes. This strawberry shortcake spread is bursting with color, interactive for little guests to enjoy and will almost serve as the center of attention, which means you won’t have to worry about any extra décor.


You can easily incorporate this dessert concept to include the birthday girl’s favorite dessert - whether it’s brownie sundaes (my fave!) or cookies.

A Girly Balloon Party

Why not take a birthday party staple and turn that into your party theme? This birthday party idea for girls uses balloons and gives them a dainty, pretty touch throughout the birthday party décor.


Use pink, white, lavender and yellow balloons in clusters to decorate your space with – the bright colors will spruce up your space for a small cost. Then, use the same colors throughout your invitations, centerpieces and favors to keep the idea consistent throughout the whole birthday experience.

Take the simple ideas in this balloon birthday party idea and  stick to your color palette and you’ll have a totally eye-appealing color coordinated birthday party for girls!

No matter what theme you decide on for your little girl’s birthday party, the key to making it a memorable and fun celebration is to find what they love and use that as the starting point. It’s easy to modify other theme party ideas to match the idea you are looking to create. With a few small changes, any idea can match your party theme and will be a party she’ll never forget!
