We've seen so many fantastic birthday party ideas  for kids, but we have to admit, some of our favorites have been thrown for the girliest of girls. Some are traditional — full of lots of pink, princesses, mermaids, dolls, and tutus — while others have expanded our ideas of what a girl party should be, with glam-camping, superhero, and safari themes. If you need party inspiration for the little lady in your life, look no further: the following 51 parties are packed full of creative ideas for decor, sweets, favors, and more. Bring on the pink (and blue and aqua and gold)!
A Vintage Girlie Superhero Party

Not only does she rock a cape and mask with serious style, but she inspired this amazing vintage-girlie superhero party ! Keep clicking for all of the details, including amazing printables from Anders Ruff ; a cape from Annie of Kid Kapers  (the birthday girl's aunt); and amazing photography from Molly B , Vita's mom.

A Modern Hello Kitty Birthday Party
Regardless of whether you're a Hello Kitty  fan or not, we're betting you're going to love this birthday party, thrown by wedding  and event planner Gloria Wong  for her daughter Taylor's second birthday.
Although the famed cat features heavily at this party on top of the cake, on cookies, and through the use of her iconic bows (guests were each given one to wear as a headband or bow tie; can you say "adorable?"), Gloria's stylish take on the theme feels totally modern — think of it as kiddie minimalism.

A Brave Birthday Party
Inspired by her daughter Ella's love of Disney film Brave, Hana Lynch — a mom, blogger , and photographer  — created a whimsical fifth birthday party that appeals to the inner rebel-princess in all of us. "I wanted the party table to evoke a sense of being within the enchanting forest that Merida encounters during her adventure," Hana says. "I created this feeling using natural elements like moss and tree stumps to display the food. The light-up 'wisps' gave it a magical touch." Add in an incredible cake; gender-neutral activities including a "haggis" toss, archery, and design-your-own coats of arms; and one adorable birthday girl — and you have one adventurous birthday bash!

A Pink and Blue Sleeping Beauty Party
We've seen our fair share of princess parties inspired by Disney. But while Sleeping Beauty — aka Briar Rose, aka Princess Aurora — is one of our favorite classic Disney princesses, she hasn't popped up on the kid party circuit much . . . until now (though we're guessing she'll get more popular with next year's release of Maleficent )! Suzanne Olvey of Fanciful Events  used the cursed princess as an inspiration for her daughter's lovely birthday party, full of rose-topped sweets, a cake fit for royalty, and an awesome design-your-own-tutu station. "I wanted to incorporate the famous pink vs. blue fight between the fairies," Suzanne says. "The party turned out really special and so magical." Click here  for all the princess-perfect details!
A Safari Birthday Party For an Animal-Lovin' Little Lady
We see a lot of adventurous birthday party themes for little boys, but who says girls can't also get in on the action? For little Reese's first birthday bash, her parents decided a safari theme was the only way to go.
"Reese loves animals," says Kelly McLeskey-Dolata of A Little Savvy Event , the party planners hired to execute the kiddie event. "The greatest activity of the day had to be the live safari animals. Reese loved seeing the snakes and baby alligators, and it added an unexpected and lively aspect to the day." Click here  to see all the sweet safari details!

A Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party
For her daughter Lou's fourth birthday party, Krista Salmon of popular design blog Kiki's List  was faced with a challenge: how to make Lou's requested theme — Strawberry Shortcake — appeal to both the birthday girl and her own superchic design sense. "I tried to incorporate as many tasteful strawberries as possible, but the overall theme tying everything together was pink. Perfect for a party full of 4-year-old girls," Krista says. Click here  for the adorable details!
A Gorgeous Glamping Party
The Bachelorette's Emily Maynard is a supermom, and she didn't let her suddenly extremely public persona stop her from throwing an incredible, girlie camping birthday bash  for her daughter, Ricki. The talented gals of Anders Ruff  got together with Emily to create a creative, sweet glamping (that's glam-camping for those of you who haven't caught on to the trend yet) party. Complete with a gorgeous cake and on-theme sweets (the individual trail-mix containers and take-home s'mores are just two of many standout components), girlie paper goods from Anders Ruff's printable collection , and lots of stylish details (including, of course, an awesome tent), Ricki's party is positively lovely — and nope, there wasn't a rose in sight.
Sweet and Saucy! A Bow-Filled First Birthday Party
Pastry chef Melody Brandon of Sweet & Saucy Shop  has been the sugar-loving mind behind some of our favorite parties ever, so when Melody's little lady Blake celebrated her first birthday, of course she had to do it with sweet and saucy style!
"I have always loved putting bows and headbands on Blake since the day she was born, so I thought the 'Bows for Blake' theme would be fitting and lots of fun," Melody says.
Melody went big with the bow theme, enlisting her sister to help create an incredible bow backdrop, dressing up almost all of the amazing dessert selections with bows and, of course, putting a bow on Blake! Add in the pink-and-gold color scheme, a gorgeous photo display of Blake's first year, and one happy birthday girl, and you have one sweet party. Click here  to check out all the details.

A Tween-Tastic Instagram-Themed Birthday Party
Like you, we're pretty obsessed with Instagram , so when we spotted this Insta-party from Anders Ruff , we knew we had to share. Designed for 11-year-old Brynne, the daughter of Anders Ruff designer Adria Ruff (who threw the party together in two days!), this tween bash took the famous Instagram icon and made it girlie in shades of pink, lime green, and baby blue. A cute store-bought cake was jazzed up with ribbon, gumballs, and printable Instagram icons , and voilà, you have one enviable, tween-approved Instagram party! Click here  for all the details.
A Too-Too Cute Tutus and Teacups Birthday Party
"I am a planner by nature and knew the day after my daughter’s first birthday that I wanted to do a teacups and tutu theme using soft pinks and oranges for her second," says Johanna Saucier, mom to 2-year-old Presley.
"I incorporated teacups in the cake balls and printables and in real teacups purchased from the flea market and used for floral arrangements," she continues. "I also wanted subtle and sweet touches of tulle, including the pom garland, tutus for each little girl, and tulle wands." But the details don't stop there. From a DIY  dress-up closet and shabby-chic doily accents to a framed photo dessert table backdrop, the many ideas at this party made us want to steal them. Our favorite, though, has to be the tulle-topped ombré cakes that lined the party table. Simply "tutu" chic! Click here  to check out all the details of this inspired party.

A Lovely, Whimsical Pink Circus Birthday Party
"The pink circus came to town for my daughter Marguerite's second birthday!" says Anne Ligeard Murat of New York-based children's party, paper, and gift site Clafoutis . "My daughter is very mischievous. She is full of energy and always trying bold acrobatics at the playground. In French, we use the expression 'Marguerite fait le cirque,' meaning she is creating her own circus. She also loves pink, so voilà — we had our theme!"
While undoubtedly a kiddie affair, Anne put her stylish, sophisticated spin on the party, incorporating designer fabrics, a custom artwork, a beautiful cake topper, and vintagey tutus. Click here  to see all the chic circus details.
A Sweet, Sprinkles-Inspired Party
Piper Jane has a notorious love of sweets, so her mom — Kirstin Gentry of Kojo Designs  — wasn't surprised when the 2-year-old requested "sprinkles" as the theme of her birthday party. "Her sweet tooth is renowned in these parts (second only to her mama's), so a sprinkle party is perfectly suited for her second birthday celebration," Kirstin says. What could have turned into a pretty straightforward party became super creative in Kirstin's hands. "Sprinkled" accessories, sweet signage (now available through Kojo Designs' Etsy shop ), fun and easy activities, and some awesome decor (confetti-filled balloons and yarn pom-pom garlands) are among all the gorgeous details. Click here  to see them all.
A Sweet Rainbow-Heart Birthday Party

Kim incorporated the theme throughout the outdoor party (beautifully photographed by Rennai of ten 22 studio ) with sweet treats including an amazing cake featuring rainbows inside and out, balloons, clever rainbow-colored drinks, and pool-perfect decor. Click here  for all the details.
A Chic, Tiffany's-Inspired Birthday Party
We've seen plenty of adorable little girls birthday parties in our day, but this Breakfast at Tiffany's-inspired party for 1-year-old Riley managed to be both girlie and chic, much like style icon Audrey Hepburn herself. "I wanted something that was ultimately fun and glamorous, and nothing was better than Breakfast at Tiffany's!" says Riley's mom, Cassidy Freitas. "Also the theme would combine two of my all-time favorite things: diamonds and breakfast." A stylish DIY  photo booth, a yummy breakfast buffet, and one scrumptious birthday girl dressed as Holly Golightly added to the appeal of this simply stunning party. Click here  for all the divine details.
A Country-Fair-Themed Party
It doesn't get more chic than Jenni Kayne , fashion designer, founder of kid street-style site Ladys & Gents , and mom to two little ones. We recently featured Jenni's son Tanner's hip pirate birthday bash , and now it's her daughter Ripley's turn to party!
"Ripley absolutely loves pigs and bunnies, so a country fair for the ladies felt like the perfect theme," Jenni says of her daughter's second birthday party. "Not knowing exactly what my version of a country fair looked like, I was inspired by the different parties that I found on Pinterest and ran with it." Wildflower arrangements, homemade pies and cakes, fair games like a ringtoss and sack races, and of course, Ripley's much-adored farm animals all made an appearance at this old-fashioned party. Click here  to check out the most stylish country fair around!
An Over-the-Top Project Runway Party
When her almost-4-year-old daughter, Charlotte, requested yet another princess birthday party, Nicole of Million Dollar Smile Celebrations  decided the old theme needed a new spin. "We watch Project Runway together, and she has quite the eye for fashion," Nicole says. "So when I suggested Charlotte's Royal Project Runway fashion show, I had her attention. When I told her the 'challenge' would be to create a look inspired by a princess to walk the runway, I had the judges' approval!" This inspirational Project Runway party  is so detailed and over the top that we're guessing little Charlotte will be talking about it for many birthdays to come. Make it work, birthday girl!
A Create and Celebrate Birthday Party
Krista Salmon of Kiki's List  took her soiree skills on the road for eldest daughter Elizabeth's create-and-celebrate birthday party. "We loaded up a van full of seven girls and headed to Confetti Studio  in Warrenton, VA," Krista says. Not only do we love the cool crafts — painted bead necklaces! paper garlands! — and happy faces that fill this party, but we also love how a simple (i.e., fairly easy for Mama) party can look just as special as one filled with the most over-the-top dessert table or decor.

A Bold, Candy-Colored First Birthday Party
A summertime bash calls for bright colors and outdoor games, and this first birthday party didn't disappoint on either front. Full of candy colors and treats, bold patterns, and plenty of backyard fun, this is one party that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face. "I found my inspiration to the party when I spotted the invite on Etsy  and I instantly fell in love with the modern chevron pattern and color scheme," says the birthday girl's mom, Jill Hill.

"Every little girl wants a princess party at some stage of their childhood, so we decided to put a twist to the traditional castle and crowns," says Louise Sanders of Sunshine Parties .

With florals, polka dots, stripes, frills, and lots of sweets, this shabby-chic birthday party  is fit for even the pickiest princess, and best of all, it's supereasy to re-create. "It was important to us that anyone could replicate this party," Louise says of the printable party collection . "You just need to give yourself a little time to cut out labels and other elements as well as to make the pom-poms and paper fans. Otherwise, it’s a piece of cake!"
A Groovy Vintage Barbie Camping Party
Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses  loves throwing a creative party, so when her daughter decided she wanted a Barbie-camping-themed birthday bash , she didn't go the typical pink route. "I decided to put a fun spin on the theme and went with a '70s vintage vibe. It all started with this great find, a 1971 Barbie Country Camper!" Maria says.
