When it’s her birthday she reminds you frequently, waiting for the attention of her loving parents. She already has her list of birthday presents and friends to invite. If she’s not as vocal about her birthday, she’s great at leaving not-so-subtle hints. If you are looking to do something special for her this year you’ve come to the right place for birthday party ideas for girls.
Places and Themes for Birthday Girls
- Her favorite restaurant
Lots of restaurants cater or have carryout if you are looking to have the party at home. Catering or carryout can be less expensive than going to the restaurant if you are on a tight budget. If you do have the party at the restaurant give them advance notice so that you can bring your own cake and have them hide it in the back.
- Roller-skating or ice skating
There are lots of fun parties at roller-skating or ice skating rinks. Find out how many guests are attending the party to get estimates on how much it might cost to host the party there. Find out if they allow outside food or if they provide food.
- Costume party
Girls love dress up and this can be a fun way to throw a party. Go to a thrift store and buy a few inexpensive accessories and clothes so that they can play with them. Invite the girls over and then ask them to pick their favorite princess or character.

- The local zoo
If you live near a city that has a good zoo, chances are good that they have a section just for parties. Having a birthday party at the zoo can be a lot of fun.
