Here at Lucy Blossoms, there’s nothing we love more than a good theme! 

Party themes are a great way to build anticipation for your event, add a touch of creativity, and truly personalize an exciting occasion. Does your child love science and exploring? Make it a space-themed party. Does your significant other need to relax? Try an at-home spa day! 

There’s no end to the ways you can make a birthday party unique, memorable, and most of all – fun. Whether it’s for a child or an adult, there’s the perfect theme out there for every age and gender. And whoever the guest of honor is, our team of event experts have got you covered. Let’s dive into some birthday party themes that are always a guaranteed hit! 

Please note: while we’ve separated the party themes into “boys” and “girls,” the whole point of a theme is to personalize! That means you choose whichever theme is best for you, whether it’s labeled “boy,” “girl,” or “koala bear” (they do love their eucalyptus-themed parties).
