I think this Instagram party is absolutely adorable! Thanks to Instagram, many moms now have expertly edited pictures of their children’s accomplishments through the year.

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!

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.

Three Awesome Kids Christmas Party Ideas

Looking for kids Christmas party ideas that don’t involve Santa or gifts? Here are three party ideas that will keep little hands busy.

Cookie baking or decorating party
Three Awesome Kids Christmas Party Ideas

Christmas baking is a lot more fun when you have a lot of hands helping. Why not invite your kids’ friends over for a party to help? They can help decorate gingerbread houses or cut-out cookies that you bake ahead of time, such as gingerbread or sugar cookie cut-outs. Or you can have a cookie baking party and let the kids help you make any kind of cookies you like!

Our Gleeful Gingerbread Kids Christmas Party Invitations or our Gingerbread Lane Kids Christmas Party Invitations are the perfect choice for this Christmas party idea!

Before the party begins, have all of your ingredients whether for baking or decorating ready to go, and set up several stations with supplies so the kids each have a place to work. Things may get messy when the kids dig in to help, but that’s half the fun. And, of course, each guest gets to take home a sampling of cookies.

Use our Particular Pattern Ugly Sweater Christmas Party Invitations to set the stage for this party. Overuse the colors red and green and make sure you have lots of old patterns and fabric throughout the party to reinforce that ugly sweater theme. This is a delightfully tacky party that everyone enjoys. You can even have a contest for people to vote on the ugliest sweater. See more ugly sweater Christmas party ideas on our Pinterest board.

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!
Farm Birthday Party Ideas with Printables!
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.
