Move over, summer- here comes fall! The crisp autumn air, falling leaves and cooler temperatures offer a lot of fun in the great outdoors. If your child has a fall birthday, here are some great seasonal themes to incorporate for a birthday party that is fun and memorable for everyone!
Football- The official American fall pastime, football themed parties are always a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. If your child is into football and likes a particular team, stock up on tableware and party favors with his or her favorite team’s logo, as well as fun table decorations shaped like footballs, goal posts and helmets. You can build a DIY football throw game where the birthday child and his or her friends have to try to throw the ball through the hole for a prize, and even do a touch football game, kids vs. parents, that gets everyone involved! Many football-themed bounce houses and jumpers are available for rental if you’re looking for that extra little “wow” factor for your football party.
Halloween– The obvious choice for a child celebrating an October birthday, Halloween-themed parties are loaded with spooky fun! Have your child encourage his or her friends to dress up in costume for the party, and then you and the other moms and dads can stage your own “trick-or-treat street” right in your backyard, complete with candy-grabbing checkpoints! Looking for more chills and thrills? Convert your garage, basement or shed to a haunted house, complete with creepy crawlies, spiderwebs, strobe lighting and eerie sound effects. The kids won’t ever forget the fun they had at your child’s Halloween birthday party!
Pumpkin Patch– Nothing like a good old-fashioned pumpkin patch to get you into the fall spirit. Why not have your child’s birthday party at a pumpkin patch? Kids can each pick their own pumpkin to take home and decorate, and can enjoy other fun fall activities such as hayrides, corn mazes and make-your-own-scarecrow craft stations. The pumpkin patch birthday party is ideal for families with large backyards.
Fall Carnival– The cooler weather of fall is perfect for a carnival right in your own backyard! Set up classic carnival games like milk bottle toss, ring toss and a rubber duckie pond and give the kids a chance to win fun trinkets on the mini midway. Rent a cotton candy machine, popcorn machine and snow cone machine for a variety of carnival-appropriate treats. You can even hire a magician or balloon-twisting clown to entertain the kids and add to the fun atmosphere! Don’t forget the jumper or bounce house to make the party complete! Your child and his or her friends will be enchanted by the birthday carnival, and it will prove to be a huge hit for all ages.
