Boy’s Birthday Party Ideas: Shark Party!

This year for my boys’ joint birthday party we went with a shark theme. The boys didn’t really have their hearts set on anything special (okay, my oldest would have done another superhero party like last year, and my youngest would have done something construction related…but I wanted to do something new :)), so we sat down at the computer and browsed through the birthday party invitations on Pear Tree’s site for inspiration. They immediately loved the mask designs and especially the shark theme! And so, the planning began…

Although the Shark Mask Kids Birthday Invitation didn’t require any photos, I still wanted to do a mini photo shoot with the boys so we could have photos displayed on the day of the party. I found the perfect shirts and we were set!

Once we had our theme, the décor and party items came together pretty quickly. I ordered matching ‘Shark’ table décor and posters, then pulled the red and aqua colors from the invite into the serving pieces wherever I could.

Boy’s Birthday Party Ideas: Robot Birthday!

Robot themed kids birthday party ideas from #PearTreeGreetings! #kidsbirthdaypartyideas #kidsideas #robot
For my son’s sixth birthday we decided upon a robot theme after seeing the great robot mask birthday party invitations at Pear Tree. My son is a Kindergartner this year, and his classroom theme is all about robots, so he thought it was the perfect birthday party idea for his friends!

My ‘vision’ for this party was to use lots of metallic and shiny materials, combined with the bold colors from the invitation.

Since I’m a photographer, I always have to incorporate a photo booth into my party decor, which is not only a fun activity for the kids but also ensures that I’ll have some photos to remember the event when it’s over! We made a photo booth backdrop out of tinfoil, (yes, tinfoil!), and covered it in cutout gears that matched the invitation theme. I then added some table décor pieces from the Pear Tree collection. It was definitely shiny and fun!Robot themed kids birthday party ideas from #PearTreeGreetings! #kidsbirthdaypartyideas #kidsideas #robot

We ordered a few extra invitations to use as photo props and attached wooden skewers for holders. I also found a kit at Target to make silly ‘geek’ glasses with mustaches, so we made a few to use as photo props.Robot themed kids birthday party ideas from #PearTreeGreetings! #kidsbirthdaypartyideas #kidsideas #robot Robot themed kids birthday party ideas from #PearTreeGreetings! #kidsbirthdaypartyideas #kidsideas #robot

Joshua’s Superhero Birthday Party by FindingWalden.com

Finding Walden is one of our beloved Pearistas. She just had her son’s fifth birthday party and used Pear Tree Greetings to set the tone for the party. Her party is full of kids birthday party ideas so be sure to visit her blog for the full party.

Joshua just turned five, you guys. Five feels so huge! It really feels like just yesterday I was planning his Super Mario Super Birthday Party but no, nope. I was recently tasked with planning a FIFTH birthday party.

Pear Tree Greetings has some perfect Superhero Birthday Invitations in their kids’ birthday invitations line right now, and I knew that they would help me give Joshua a superhero birthday party with a twist. Invites! Ordered! BAM!Pear Tree Greetings Superhero Birthday Party Invitations

I also threw some Superhero Thank You cards into the cart so that we can practice teaching gratitude and penmanship. (Being thankful and sensory practice! BOOM!)

And then I fell into full on party planning psychosis on Pinterest and we started the busiest month ever. EVER.

While I was browsing the Pear Tree site, I saw that they’ve recently launched a line of kids’ party decor and scoped it out. I found kids party decorations that matched the superhero invites and a coordinating set with a slightly different style. I bought them both and threw in some searching for heros favor tags for good measure.Pear Tree Greetings Kids Party Decorations #findingwalden #peartreegreetings #superhero #kidsbirthdaypartyideasPear Tree Greetings Kids Party Decorations #findingwalden #peartreegreetings #superhero #kidsbirthdaypartyideasPear Tree Greetings Kids Party Decorations #findingwalden #peartreegreetings #superhero #kidsbirthdaypartyideas

Winter Warm Up Birthday Party

Winter Warm Up Birthday Party - hot chocolate bar #peartreegreetings #birthdaypartyideas #kidsbirthday
With the winter we are having in Minnesota, an outdoor party is out of the question. My niece has a March birthday and every year we struggle to come up with indoor birthday party ideas. This year for her 6th birthday we decided to embrace the cold. Our theme was “Baby, it’s cold outside,” and we decided to stay indoors and have each guest create a canvas craft project. We emphasized the theme with snowflakes on our invitations and a hot chocolate bar for the birthday treat!

Winter Warm Up Birthday Party - the theme begins with the kids birthday invitation #peartreegreetings #birthdaypartyideas #kidsbirthday
Pear Tree’s Snow Day Vertical Christmas Cards with white snowflakes printing over the full photo made perfect winter birthday party invitations. We added Avery’s photos and changed the text to spell out the party details to invite everyone to the celebration.

Next, it was time to plan our pizza party decorations! We kept it simple, with subtle touches like mustache straws & cupcake toppers, and used the classic pizzeria colors of red, black and white, with green for an accent. The chef’s hat topped it all off (no pun intended). :)

Farm Birthday Party Ideas with Printables!

Michelle, a Pear Tree Product Designer, threw this birthday party for her son, Alex, complete with custom birthday invitations and farm party printables so you can re-create the look!

A farm theme was an obvious choice for Alex’s 2nd birthday. We live on a small hobby farm, and Alex is the best helper when it comes to feeding the chickens or collecting the eggs. He loves to play with his toy tractors, ride his pedal tractor, and is always singing Old McDonald.

We held his party at a local park, Sibley Farm, with our closest friends and family. The children enjoyed playing on the farm playground, looking at the farm animals and taking hayrides around the park, pulled by Grandpa Tom’s tractor!

Once we picked our party theme, designing the invite and coming up with farm birthday party ideas was fun! I used our newest format, 3 separate cards tied together with baker’s twine, to design these Li’l Farmer Tied With Twine Kids Birthday Cards. The top card becomes a keepsake card for the guest of honor. It has a little red barn on the front and on the reverse side is an area for the guests to share their favorite Alex moment and bring to the party. The second card is a photo magnet for guests to keep, and the third holds all the party details. This invite worked perfectly, since I could fit all the party information on one card and have fun with the other two! I used colored envelopes and matching address labels to make them fun to open.
