Easy Birthday Party Decor For Any Theme

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company. All opinions are 100% mine.

Easy Birthday Party Decor For Any Theme. Fun and easy ways to keep decorate your child's next birthday party. Including fun princess-themed party favors! Celebrating your child’s birthday can be fun and exhausting. Hosting doesn’t come natural to me, so I tend to get overwhelmed with all the planning and preparations. However, I find that keeping it simple is the way to go. As long as my kids have a birthday cake, friends, food and a few gifts, they’re happy.

Today I want to share some of my favorite ways to customize and decorate a birthday party. These ideas are easy and don’t require a lot of time or money. I’ll also be sharing Hershey’s new birthday products that are dressed in their party-best. These new Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates come in brightly wrapped foils to fit a variety of birthday themes and help make the day that much sweeter. I even created a fun party favor and craft that would be perfect for a princess-themed party.

Easy Birthday Party Decor For Any Theme


You can’t go wrong with balloons. It’s a simple and inexpensive way to add pops of color to any birthday party. I like selecting at least 2-3 colors depending on the party theme.


If you’re having a party, you’re probably serving cake or cupcakes. You can either purchase a cake decorated with your child’s birthday theme or customize it yourself. I like to purchase a plain white frosted cake and add the decor myself. I have used real flowers, colored sugar and other small toys to customize my children’s birthday cakes.


Instead of buying custom themed birthday plates and cups, choose disposable tableware in a solid color. For a princess party, you could buy pink and purple. Or for a superhero party, you can choose a color based your child’s favorite character.


This is one of my favorite ways to add a personal touch to a party. I like to offer snacks and treats that tie in the theme of the party. For example, if you’re having a princess theme party you can serve pink lemonade, fruit with strawberry yogurt or even sandwiches cut out into stars. Keep it simple and fun.

Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates

Birthday parties with Hershey! Making your little one feel extra special on their big day just got easier with The Hershey Company’s new products designed to fit the birthday and to be added to almost every aspect of the celebration, whether it be in party favors, special treats, in games and prizes, or part of the decorations.

I created these fun princess themed party favors using the pink and purple foil wrapped Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates. I placed a sticker pack at the base along with decorative pink grass, a princess crown, play jewelry and Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates.

I wrapped it up with cellophane wrap and tied with colorful ribbons.

I also created princess wands using a small wooden dowel, craft paint, ribbons and Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates. Simply paint the wooden dowel with purple or pink paint, glue the chocolate on one end along with a few ribbons. It’s a fun and simple craft idea that even kids can create. I actually found this fun tutorial on the Hershey’s Kiss website.

Jesenia, I like the idea to buy a cake that is decorated to fit the theme of my kid's birthday party. My wife and I have been planning on throwing our son an exciting birthday party this year. Maybe we should rent out a room at a fun venue that he could enjoy.
