Little People Party Theme

I racked my brain for weeks trying to come up with a party theme for my daughter who was turning 2.  

I came across these adorable mini hats on Etsy and knew I had to do something with them. So I ordered them without the final theme figured out.

Pinterest showed little party hats on plastic animals, which I thought was adorable but quickly realized that I didn’t actually have any plastic animals and the cute ones were expensive to buy. I saw some at the dollar store, but they looked cheap and scary. All the lions and tigers were roaring and not what I was looking for.

One day sitting in our playroom with my daughter watching her play with her Fisher Price Little People House it clicked.

I grabbed a little hat and tried it on one of her little characters and it fit! My daughter was curious about what I was doing and came over. She immediately started singing Happy Birthday to the toy and I knew I had a winner.

My daughter already had quite a few different Little People sets so I didn’t need to buy any.

If you don’t have a ton and want to throw this theme you can look online and buy used or order a set of just people or animals on Amazon.

As mentioned above it started with the hats on the Little People.

I also made center pieces out of the Little People Bus and Airplane I have.

I used yogurt drinks containers and a brightly colored bouquet I picked up at Costco.  I also stuck in a really brightly colored banners I picked up at Party City.

This was the first time I made a balloon garland. It could not have been easier. It took about an hour.  

I bought a hand pump to save my lungs. The balloon strip can be used over and over again so a bargain in my mind. I loved them and thought they added a lot to the decor.

Little People Food

I didn’t go theme heavy with the food, I just tried to make things that both adults and kids would enjoy.

The one ‘tip’ I would like to share is using lollipop sticks instead of skewers for kid food.

I made these peanut butter and jelly sandwich skewers using sticks so they didn’t have a stabby end.

My two year old and her little friends had no problems taking the sticks apart and my niece learned that she loves jam.  

I also used the lollipop sticks to make fruit skewers.

Little People Goodie Bags:

If you want to continue the theme into the Goodie Bags for little guests to take home here are some <$10 ideas that are appropriate for 1-5 year olds (note: they were <$10 at the time of original publishing).

Little People Birthday Party – Conclusion

This theme is great for kids who already have a collection of Little People toys or if you want to gift them some after the party is over.

My daughter loved this theme and I will bring out the little hats to have mini-birthdays for her toys throughout the year on rainy days or just because.
