These glamorous birthday party ideas are perfect for girls both young & older. Do you have a little one who likes dressing up or is interested in fashion design? Any fans of Project Runway in your home? Do you have a girly girl that loves getting mini makeovers? There are many ways to plan a fun fashion birthday party that the kids are sure to love!
Glamorous Birthday – Invitations
Creating a fashion-related invitation is really easy! You’ll need a few different swatches of material and some brads (fasteners) to create a material swatch invitation. You can alternate paper party detail swatches with swatches of material – see below for a picture sample. Mix up some fun materials like animal print, lace, ruffles…I’m sure you’ll find a lot of great ideas at your local fabric store!
You can include a swatch that reads “Get ready for some fun fashion designing and start practicing your runway walk!”.
Another simple idea for glamorous birthday invitations you can hand deliver is to tie the invitation onto a plastic tiara and include a note on the invitation asking the guests to wear these to the party.
Glamorous Birthday - Decorations
Lots of pink in flowers, balloons and streamers makes for an excellent start to a glamorous party. Put up some extra mirrors around the party area and hang plastic necklaces and feather boas from the corners of the mirror. Anything with glitter and sparkles would make an excellent choice as well.
You can create a casual lounge area with lounge chairs or pillows. Include a refreshment area with pink lemonade in plastic martini glasses.
Glamorous Birthday - Food
You can add edible glitter to foods such as cupcakes and other desserts. You can sprinkle a little over other items as well like dips or on the food table. 1. Beauty Cakes Cupcake Pics

Glamorous Birthday - Activities
Fashion Designers: Split your party guests into groups of 2 or 3. Give each team the same assignment: Choose 1 person to be your fashion model and the rest of the team will be the designers. In a specified time frame, each team will have to design an outfit for their model to wear for a fun fashion show. Provide each team with materials such as:
- old bridesmaid dresses (here’s a great chance to use them again!) or dresses purchased from a local thrift store
- streamer paper
- plastic flowers
- tape or glue
- anything else you think make a fun addition to your fashion supplies
You could allow for some time for hair and makeup makeovers as well.
Create an area designated as a catwalk – you could line a runway with rose petals for a fun added touch! Don’t forget to line the catwalk with chairs for your audience! Once the design time is up, have each of the teams take turns displaying their models in their newly created outfits. Be sure to have your camera ready!
Pampering: Treat your little guests to some pampering by bringing in some professionals to do mini manicure and pedicures for the guests.
