Party by Made Marveously
If there is one item in the house that is a constant inspiration for children’s celebrations, it’s the humble Teddy Bear. He’s been to casual picnics, Christenings in his bow tie, and first birthday’s on the arm of his best friend. But if there’s one party theme he really likes, it’s when he returns to the wild and gets back to nature.
This kids party theme is a lot of fun for kids who marvel at the great outdoors, camping or animals. We’ve focused on a more woodlands take on a bear kids party theme to follow on with some of the latest trends we’ve seen for a more modern wild take on a Bear party

This teepee setup featured in the Celebrating Little One’s magazine is also fantastic inspiration for this theme! See the whole setup in the magazine here.

Why stick to just Ted when there is a whole forest full of friends? Invite them all and take inspiration from the woodland surroundings with lots of green, brown, woodwork, camping inspired pieces and hints of metallic for a special touch.

I don’t know too many 58 year olds who inspire 5 year old birthday parties, do you?
But with a portfolio of over 150+ careers and a killer wardrobe, it’s no surprise Barbie has and always will be an inspiration for so many young girls – so why not have a party in her honour?
But how do you choose between rock ‘n’ roll Barbie, Malibu Barbie or Mermaid Barbie?
Think like Barbie and make everything PINK of course!
Barbie party – The Sweet Cart (Perth)
Barbie party styled by Opulenticity Party & Buffet Styling
I was a HUGE Barbie fan when I was little. My all-time favourite was Barbie and the Rockers, which in hindsight would have made a great party theme!
If choosing just one of Barbie’s roles is too hard though, use a Barbie silhouette and stick with PINK as your main colour mixed with with white and black which will achieve the right effect – we’ve found a few ‘accessories’ to help complete the setting from vendors listed on the Life’s Little Celebrations children’s party directory
