Kara's Party Ideas

World Dream Day falls on September 25, so it only makes sense to throw a sweet dream sleepover party to celebrate all of your wildest dreams. Now, this party won't be like your typical sleepover. Go the extra mile and set up individual tents for your guests to spend the night and tell your friends to come dressed in their fanciest PJs. Spend the night munching on unicorn s'mores, making dream catchers, and sparkly dream jars. Finish off the night with a movie marathon in your personal tents so you can fall asleep and dream the night away. 

Superstition Party

With Friday the 13th falling in September this year, it only makes sense to start the spooky season a little early with a superstitions party. For this theme, the creepier, the better. Fill the room with open umbrellas, fake black cats, and decorate with the number 13 all over the place. Test your luck and make a superstitions obstacle course: See if you can cross the sidewalk without stepping over any cracks and dodge all of the ladders. Wind down with some cake and read all about the craziest superstitions from around the globe

Batman Party

Hostess With the Mostess

Take a visit to Gotham City and celebrate National Batman Day (September 18). Send up the Bat Signal on your invites to let your guests know they've been called into action. Then test out your superhero skills and see who has it in them to help protect Gotham City. Take a break from trying out all your superpowers and focus on your superhero suit with a customized cape, just like Batman himself. Finish off the day in Gotham with a Batman-themed cake.

Blue 42! Hut, hut, HIKE! Score a touchdown with your birthday party this year and tackle a football theme to mark the start of football season. Invite your guests to wear a jersey from their favorite team. Turn your backyard into a giant tailgating party full of games like cornhole and the bean bag toss. Don't forget the food! Indulge in stadium favorites like hotdogs, wings, and sliders. When you can't take another bite, switch gears and customize your own football with your favorite colors. Finish off the celebration and give your throwing arm a little bit of a workout and break open a football-shaped pinata.

Oh, hey, New York Fashion Week, sorry we can't make it this year! Instead, we're celebrating a September birthday with a stroll down the runway in the trendiest designs at a fashion show-themed birthday party. Pull together a basket of clothes that all of your guests can choose from. Let everyone mix and match different pieces, and when they have the perfect outfit, hit the runway! Pick out a few of your favorite songs and press play to set the mood for the runway walk. When the show is over, switch gears and design some clothing of your own. Take plain t-shirts from the craft store and use fabric markers, rhinestones, and scissors to transform a simple shirt into a must-have item of the season.

Sally's Baking Addiction

Let's be real — everyone's favorite part of any birthday party is breaking open the pinata. So, why not make the whole party about the pinata? That's exactly what you'll do at your pinata-themed party. When your guests arrive, send them over to the crafts station, where they'll get started on making their very own pinata out of paper mache. While their pinata is drying, let them explore the candy station, where they can pick out what they want to put inside their pinata. If they want to be surprised, set aside a few mystery bags for them to choose from. The celebration wouldn't be complete without a cake — a pinata cake, that is. Cut open the cake and watch the candy break free.
