Party Ideas for March Birthdays

A great way to get started is by picking a fun spring birthday party theme for your little one. We've got inspiration for three fun March themed parties to help you get those creative ideas flowing.

St. Patrick's Day Kid Party Themes

For those who want to honor March and St. Patrick's Day, there are plenty fun of ideas to choose from - from a rainbow theme complete with pots of gold at the end of each table to a leprechaun-inspired event with lots of green, gold and purple décor and ‘magically delicious’ treats!

We love the Lucky Charms themed kids St. Patrick’s Day party idea from Inspired by This. A perfect theme for children of all ages, guests will love this party inspired by those delicious marshmallows we all know and love.

Decorate with soft pastels and florals to truly celebrate the holidays and the beginning of spring in a fun (and yummy) way. Can we talk about that incredible cake?!?

Animal Party Themes

If you prefer something more general, try an animal-themed party to celebrate the special day.

Finding the Lovely planned a sweet animal theme family party for her son's 6th birthday celebration. She decorated her home with soft blue balloons accented by neutral tones and backdrops she was able to create herself.

We love the simplicity of her spring decor and the thoughtful way she was able to incorporate her son's love for animals with easy to find decorations and cake toppers.

This theme is easy to customize for your animal lover by using a brighter color palette or focusing more on a trip to the zoo. This is such a cute party theme to celebrate boys and girls with a March birthday.

Spring Garden Party Ideas

One of our favorite creative & versatile March birthday party ideas is a spring Garden Party. Whether you are celebrating a first birthday or you want to host a fairy inspired party for girls, the options are limitless.

The dreamy inspiration in the photos from Story by Mia is perfect for creating a mood board to plan your own party themes.

How to Decorate for a March Celebration?

No matter what party theme you choose, don't forget about the decorations! A few simple but creative touches can go a long way in making your party feel festive, fresh and unique.

For example, if you're the host of an animal-themed bash, consider creating giant paper animals as wall decorations or using toy animals as centerpieces atop tables covered in colorful cloths.

And of course don't forget about balloons! They are always a hit with kids and can be customized based on your chosen party theme or colors. Create a balloon arch in the shape of a rainbow or use them as accents for all birthday party themes.

You could also make some green shamrocks or floral garlands out of construction paper or felt and hang them around the room for added festivity.

Dress up the tables with fresh flowers to really bring spring into your party themes.

Fun March Birthday Party Activities for All Kids

Of course, no good birthday party is complete without a host of fun activities for all the party guests.

Depending on the age of the birthday boy or girl is, try setting up some art projects like painting rainbows onto canvases or making garden markers out of popsicle sticks and markers.

If they're older kids, consider organizing some outdoor games like tag or hide-and-seek - just make sure everyone is dressed appropriately so they stay warm enough while still having fun!

What Food to Serve at your March Birthday Party?

Finally, what to eat? Bake some cupcakes or cookies that fit into your chosen theme (rainbow cupcakes anyone?) and set out snacks like chips and dip or fresh fruit kabobs that are easy enough for little hands to grab between activities.

Quick snacks that can be enjoyed by guests of every age are a win-win!
