Birthday Party Themes for boys and girls to use in 2020 with inspiration and printable sets
I know you all love my free printable sets and my themed birthday party posts. Last year my John Deere and African Safari themed party posts were amongst my most popular posts! The good news is that there will be a lot more of those on the blog this year, all with free printable sets!
So today I’m listing my top 10 party themes for kids parties in 2020. Some of the themes I’ve covered, and I will link back to them. Most of the new themes will feature some time this year, so remember to check back for them!
1. John Deere Themed Party
My John Deere Party post was my most visited post in 2019, and I do not think its popularity will decrease this year. The fact is a farm or tractor themed party is not linked to a movie like many of the others, and there are so many cute and fun things you can connect to this theme.
For a girl, you can focus on the farm animals, where the tractors come in more for the boys. Head over to my post to see what we did for my oldest’s fourth birthday party.
My sons love playing with their lego, and it gives them hours of fun! And I can see on Pinterest that it is a trendy party theme. You can capitalise on the bright colours and blocks and can achieve a very striking look without too much effort. I will create a printable pack for a Lego-themed party this year as well, let me know in the comments below if you would like this.
3. Frozen Themed Party
Of course Frozen needs to be on this list. Even my two boys belt out the frozen songs throughout the day ever since we went to see the movie. Both boys and girls loved the film, and I know Frozen will once again be one of the top party themes for 2020. Even though I only have two boys, and will most likely never host a Frozen themed party, I might also create a printable pack for it.
The Cars franchise is still pretty big, and Lightning McQueen will also feature at a lot of parties! Even now that Disney added Cruize Ramirez girls will also love this party theme. Let me know in the comments down below if you would like to see a printable set on this theme as well!
My Wild Animal/African Safari themed party was my second most-read post of 2019! But you can go so much further with animals! Use Woodland, farm or wild animals for this theme (or even pets). The basics will stay the same – neutral colours and rustic elements with various animal print form the basis and then you can add the various animals onto that. I might also look into a Woodlands animal post this year, just because they are so cute!
We had a pirate-themed party for my oldest’s fifth birthday, and I already have a lot of pirate goodies that are almost ready to share with you. This is such a fun theme as it provides a lot of dress-up opportunities that the kids love. I had bandanas, eye patches, and cardboard swords for the kids and even offered a treasure chest with jewellery and gold for them to loot! They had so much fun, and I will be sharing my pirate printables with you in the next couple of months!
Update: The Post is up, and Printable pack is available for this Friendly Pirate themed party!
7. Toy Story
You’ve got a friend in me! Tell me the truth; do you secretly hope your kids pick Toy Story so you can watch it with them? I will always love Toy Story and enjoy all four movies. We hosted a Toy Story party for my youngest last year. This is once again, a theme that is suited for boys and girls! The good news is that the Toy Story printable pack Is also in the making and I will be sharing it early in the year!
My sons are fascinated with dinosaurs, and I have a feeling this is what my oldest will choose for his party later this year.
My oldest’s first birthday party had a Dusty Crophopper theme. Even though old Dusty is not as popular anymore, the world of planes gives a very versatile party. Head over to see my Planes/Dusty Crophopper-themed party with free printables.
10. Rainbow Themed Party
My youngest had a Rainbow party for his first birthday. It was a lot of fun to work with all the bright colours. It is a straightforward theme to put together and can also be used for boys and girls.
