Children’s Birthday Party Invitations. A birthday is a perfect excuse to have invite all of your friends over for a festive party, full of laughter and fun. I love to send out “real” invitations for my son’s parties. I am not very good at keeping a scrapbook for him, but I do keep a birthday party invitation every year to put in his memory box. As much as I love Evite (and I do!), I love picking out birthday party invitations even more.

ECHOage is a wonderful, online birthday party service where children learn the value of giving and receiving while celebrating their birthday. All you need to do is pick a charity, email the invitations and let the donations come in. Half of the donations go to your child to select a gift and the other half go to a charity of your choice.

ECHOage has been selected as a featured Sweet Peas & Stilettos *Shop for a Good Cause* and *Go Green* organization.

Looking for a fun and festive theme for your child’s birthday celebration? Here are a few ideas to get you inspired:

Alien Nation/ Martians Attack – let the kids pretend they are in outer space, you can ever serve space food

American Idol – break out the karaoke machine

Around the World – food and decorations from around the world – fortune cookies, pinatas and more

Bugs – You can even make it into a movie night and let them watch Bug’s Life after they spend an hour digging in the yard looking for little ‘friends’

Candy Land/ Sweet Shop – I have seen some adorable candy table displays lately – this is great for a kids of many ages too, you can pop in a toothbrush into the goodie bag to minimize the guilt

Car Wash – everyone gets their own sponge – lots of water and splashing and bubbly fun

Circus – a petting zoo, popcorn, silly hats and colorful decorations

Cupcake – cupcake invites, decorations and let the kids decorate yummy cupcakes with fun treats

Dinosaur Dig – for your little dino lovers, hide fake bones in the year and let the kids dig away

Disco – music, silly costumes and dancing

Fairy – every little girl I know seems to go through a fairy stage at one point in time (and they all look so cute in fairy wings!)

Fashionista/ Project Runway – Let the kids decorate t-shirts or tote bags and then they can walk the runway

Kite Flying – enjoy a beautiful afternoon as the kids picnic, fly kites and enjoy the fresh air

Lego – a table full of Legos will keep many kids happy for hours

Luau – if you have a pool, let the kids make leis and hula dance too

Olympics – for your sport lover – have an obstacle course, a basketball game and other fun activites – kids can go home withgold medals in lieu of party bags

Sleeping Beauty Slumber Party – all of the little princesses can come over to your castle for a night of girlie pink fun

Tea Party – let the girls get dressed up, sip tea and decorate tea cups too

Under the Sea – lots of shells, a cool fish shaped cake and the kids can go fishing in a little kiddie pool

Zoo – Kids love animals – let each child bring over some over their favorite stuffed animals and be zoo keepers for the day
