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!

Decorating for a Woodland party theme is all about bringing the outside in (or highlighting nature’s best if hosting outside!). Think lots of greenery with moss and foliage, and wooden accents for a rustic setting amongst the trees.
