Great Kids Party Themes for Summer Birthdays

Great Kids Party Themes for Summer Birthdays

Are you trying to come up with some great kids party themes for summer birthdays? If so, it’s worth thinking about how you can make the most of the outdoors through your garden, parks and beaches, while also considering different venues for themed parties. Organising your kids party through a professional company can also make it easier to put together a great day during the summer, and can help turn a good kids party theme into a truly great one.

Some of the more popular themes that you may want to try out during the summer include having a garden party with a Hawaiian or fiesta theme; the latter can involve using ribbons and pinatas. Animal themes may also be used with pony rides in your garden (if you have the space), or through a trip to a local petting zoo. Most zoos will also offer birthday party packages for children. You might also want to create a simple camping theme in your garden with a BBQ, tents, and games.

Useful activities and party games for a summer themed birthday party can include water slides, bubble and balloon games, as well as painting and drawing on canvases - there hopefully shouldn’t be too much of an issue with mess. Mini science experiments might also be set up, and can be enhanced through the use of instructors. Similar activities might involve a trip to the beach or to local playing fields for sports days.

Sports and beach parties can also be carried out through themed parties organised by professionals like DNA Kids party specialists. These parties can be ideal for 5-11 year olds, and can be put together in local parks or indoors, where teams can be created to play football, cricket, netball, hockey, and other sports; other sport themed games might include Olympic trials and relay races. Party food and special prizes can also be given out as part of a day.



Other ideas for themed summer parties can include hosting a beach party, which can involve games such as hula and limbo, as well as volleyball and treasure hunts. Going with a professional party entertainer can also allow you to put together parties around jungle themes, as well as school discos and dance parties using UV lights and light shows.

It’s worth balancing out the cost of a summer themed party by looking into options for renting private space in a local park for the day, which might end up being cheaper than you think compared to a hall or venue. Booking a kids party specialist can similarly mean that you gain the peace of mind of a CRB checked entertainer, as well as different options if the weather changes and backup party plans have to be explored.

Best Birthday Gifts for Him This Summer

A lot of husbands and boyfriends complain about having to buy their spouse a birthday present. ‘I just don’t know what you like,’ they moan. ‘I really don’t want to end up getting something you won’t want.’ Then there’s that old chestnut – ‘I don’t know what to buy for a woman.’ The only thing that will calm them down is a handwritten list, detailing what gifts you’d like and where he can find them. There, a simple job made even simpler.

Ladies - let’s keep this between us, but it can be a right palaver working out what birthday present to buy for the man in your life. You’d never admit it of course, but it’s true. Men can be tricky creatures at the best of times. They might seem straightforward but how can you really know whether he’ll like those personalised cuff links or that mug with ‘World’s Best Lover’ printed on the front? Maybe it’d be easier to get him an Xbox game. Is that cheating?

Picking a present your husband, boyfriend or fiancé doesn’t have to be a chore. Here are some of the best gifts on the market right now. Cassette Playlist Print, Betsy Benn £38

This is actually a super cool idea. You simply give the retailer a list of 16 song titles that mean a lot to your partner – they could be songs from your wedding day, songs from his childhood or just tracks that he really loves. A font expert will then lovingly scribe these song titles onto an attractive black and white canvas, featuring 16 different cassette designs, says NotOnTheHighStreet.com.The result is an extremely beautiful, retro canvas print with a very special message.

X-Lpase £19.99

If your guy fancies himself as a bit of a filmmaker – why not get give him the opportunity to create his own time lapse films? It’s not like you really have to think that they’re ‘just as good as David Attenborough’s’ – just nod, smile and be encouraging. The X-Lapse camera mount is a rotating tripod that’s suitable for everything from the smallest digital camera, to the largest SLR device. It even works with mobile phones. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Your boyfriend or husband attaches his camera to the X-Lapse mount and sets it to time lapse mode – the gadget will do the rest. At just £19.99, it won’t break the bank either. According to International Business Times journalist Reissa Su, gadgets are some of the best gifts to give to men.

Wacky Racers Driving Experience £100

This gift might require you to splash out a little more but it’ll be worth it to see the smile on his face, say the experts at IWantOneOfThose.com. Your man will be taken to a top secret race track to try out some of Britain’s craziest vehicles. There are cars made from toilets, sofas, office chairs, dining room tables and even double beds. The leopard print sofa car that appeared on TV show Top Gear is here too. Refreshments are provided throughout the day and your man will leave with a special Wacky Racers goodie bag. Go on – indulge the child in him.

Hammock In A Bag £15.99

What a perfect gift for summer! If you’ve got two trees with low hanging branches in your garden – stick a hammock on them. Even better, set up the hammock on a hot sunny afternoon or evening before your man comes home. Then lead him mysteriously outside where there’s a cold beer and a newspaper waiting right next to his brand new hammock. Plus, it folds neatly away so it won’t get under your feet when summer disappears and it has to come inside.

One more thing – don’t forget to send your man a birthday card this year. It doesn’t have to be a staid piece of paper with a boring message on the front. Why not pick and personalise your very own e-card instead? The funnier, the better. He’ll love it if you get a little wicked on him.

Author Bio: Jane is editor of a women’s magazine. She recommends Katie’s Cards for a great selection of birthday e-cards and messages. She can be found blogging about family life.

Fashion is ever changing

Fashion is a constantly evolving cycle of styles, with each generation adding their own flair and style to each era. Although fashion designers will constantly come up with new variants and styles, there is no doubt that they may well be influenced as we are ourselves up to a certain age, by the genre of music we listen to and appreciate.

An example of this is the late 70' and 80's which in many ways, as viewed from this time, could be perceived as the rebellious era. With numerous influences from previous era's such as Mods and rockers, then emerged the punk era, with the enigmatic Sid Vicious through to the new romantics such as Duran, Duran and Spandau Ballet. Each of these influences had a dramatic effect on the fashion of their era, and it could be said that in reality in many ways fashion is a mirror of the current musical influences that prevail within a time period.

Another example would be, the 80's pop icon, Boy George, whose band Culture Club, won notoriety and fame not only for its music but also for what was considered at the time as extrovert dress sense which included make up, with a flair that had not been seen before.



Modern culture as perceived during each time period is influenced by many factors which include the ways our music idols dress. Grunge, Sk8ter and such styles are now widely recognised and provided for, by relevant designers within the field and reflect modern tastes, however as indicated, fashion evolves and changes with ferocious speed and what is deemed acceptable in social terms can change dramatically.

There is no doubt that the advent of the internet and social media has dramatically altered the fashion world, with the ability to gauge interest, test potential styles and target specific consumer groups with a tailored approach which only a few years ago would have been time consuming and expensive. Indeed, with the ability to affect social influences with social media, fashion can almost be directed in certain ways to create the desire prior to production, which for the fashion industry as with any other is an excellent benefit.

In terms of where fashion is going, no body really knows, although now it is far easier for both designers and consumer to ascertain trends and potential areas of interest with much greater accuracy than ever before.
