A Woodland kids party theme is like a Burberry trench coat in my book – a timeless classic. It’s one of a few themes that can transcend through generations and be updated with the smallest of tweaks, making it a favourite of ours here at Life’s Little Celebrations!

One of the more popular adaptations of this kids party theme we’re seeing across our favourite Instagram accounts is a focus on the rustic and natural elements of an enchanted wood. Bringing the outside in with wooden features, green moss and pops of vibrant red toadstools – it’s an adaptable theme for any kids party, and we’ve found some perfect woodland party supplies from our LLC Vendors to help bring it all together.
The cutest of animals can be incorporated for this kids party woodland theme…from foxes and deers…to bears and raccoons….it’s a great chance to have a bit of fun with some of the partyware and woodland party supplies that is available for this theme at the moment!

There are so many reasons why we love this theme! Hopefully these items have inspired you to try it for your next celebration.
A theme which has become quite popular lately for children’s celebrations is a Woodland/Enchanted Forest theme! Such a wonderful neutral theme that you can tailor towards a boy or a girl. Create a colour scheme of red, white, green and brown – think mushrooms, deers, fairies, trees…and a little magical scene for your little one’s party is set!I have done a seperate blog post on a Fairy Theme so have a browse there for some specific fairy ideas =)
