21 Cool Birthday Party Decor Ideas for Children 

We just celebrated ‘Ailani’s 5th birthday last month (you can check out her Olympic themed celebration here) and we will be celebrating Aralynn’s 2nd birthday in just a few weeks. I probably won’t do a big party for Aralynn- she’s still quite young and doesn’t yet care about all the fancy stuff- but we will definitely have a small gathering of family stop by for a fun themed celebration. Anyway, I always find party planning for kids to be lots of fun and even for those who are not planning a massive birthday bash, there are cute and fun ways to decorate your home or yard for a small birthday party. Check out these 21 Cool Birthday Party Decor Ideas.
