1. Unicorns

What better theme for your little girl’s birthday party than unicorns? Two year old girls will love this party theme–plus there are so many ways to get creative with it!

There are numerous unicorn DIY party favors, decorations and desserts out there, which makes options for a unicorn themed party endless. Some of the best ideas to stick with are sparkly streamers, a unicorn piñata, and a unicorn cake! You can’t go wrong with this theme, because it’s sure to make your child smile on their special day!

2. Comic Book

A fun theme to consider for your soon-to-be 2 year old son is comic books! You don’t see comic book birthday parties too often, which makes this a unique theme and you won’t have to worry about your son’s party being like everyone else’s!

A unique idea to consider for this theme is handing out comic books as party favors. Another great way to spice up the party is by doing a superhero theme and having the kids dress as their favorite superhero or have masks and capes ready for all the kids when they arrive!

3. Beach or Tropical

Another unique party theme is beach or tropical. If your child has a birthday in the summer, this is a great theme to consider for the hot weather and can be used for a boy’s or girl’s party!

This is a great theme, because it can be easily transformed into a fun pool party. Whether it’s a beach or tropical theme, find some fun pool toys and make some themed food to make the kids feel like they are at the beach while they enjoy the party! There are also plenty of water games to play at the party as well, such as a slip and slide and water balloons.

4. Princess

What little girl doesn’t dream of becoming a princess? If you have a soon-to-be 2 year old daughter, you can never go wrong with a princess birthday party theme.

Great ways to plan this party are by buying crowns for your child and their guests, princess themed or pink candy, sparkly streamers and a princess or crown piñata. Don’t forget about the princess themed cupcakes for dessert!

5. Sports

What better way to keep kids active while having a blast at a birthday party? Make it a sports themed party! Or, if your family loves to watch or play a specific sport, make that the theme and set up games for the kids and adults to enjoy.

A great way to make the theme come to life is ask your guests to come dressed in their favorite team’s jersey or as an athlete. All the party games can be fun, active, indoor and outdoor games. The kids can try to toss a ball into holes cut into a board, enjoy fun relay races with a soccer ball, or shoot some hoops with a small foam basketball. The best part is this theme can make for some unique cakes too!

Whether you decided to theme your soon-to-be 2 year old’s birthday party princesses or comic books, your kid is sure to have a blast at their fun, themed party! No matter what you choose, there will be fun and different ways to decorate and plan each theme, so don’t be afraid to get creative with the party!
