July is little one’s birthday month! I can’t believe he’ll be turning 7 yrs. old! To celebrate such a milestone, I want to take him, and my readers on a virtual trip to look at birthday celebrations from around the world. We’ll take a look at how moms like you and me celebrate their children’s birthdays with birthday cakes, traditions, themed parties, invites, and so much more!
Theme parties, cakes, and piñatas…
Do you have a Disney fan in your house? Diana from Ladydeelg shares some wonderful tips on throwing a fun and affordable Mickey Mouse birthday party with some Spanish words scattered here and there! Carrie from Crafty Moms Share offers some great Minnie Mouse ideas for the party food, and activities, and a cool Frozen theme party!
How about a cool party with a smoking volcano! Like the volcanoes from Costa Rica? Yes, you read that right. Leanna from All Done Monkey has gone all out for her volcano loving little monkey with a volcano party!
|All of the cakes featured in this collage can be found in this post.|
Around the world… we’re flying to Germany, France, Brazil, Korea and the Netherlands!
Becky from Kid World Citizen has a guest post on an adorable little one’s first Korean birthday, and how his Mom plans incorporates his Korean culture with the American one.
Becky from Rue Du Belverde shares the excitement of being invited to a French birthday party! Not sure what to expect they left the party feeling content, and with an overload of Nutella!
First birthdays, traditions, and more…
Olga from The European Mama shares with us, “In some countries, namedays are celebrated instead of birthdays (or on top of birthdays). For example, my nameday is July 11th (there are several dates for every name). In the Netherlands, kids and adults both sit in a circle- this is referred to as “circle party”. And when guests arrive, they have to congratulate and shake hands with everyone, not only the birthday child!”
Last but not least, I’d love to share with you some free birthday printables, and a birthday song in Spanish from Spanish Playground and All Done Monkey’s birthday book.
I truly hope you’ve enjoyed this virtual trip around the world and how birthdays are celebrated! I’m planning little one’s birthday, and I’ve gotten some great ideas from this post.
What a wonderful collection of ideas!! Happy birthday to your little man!
This is a wonderful post! If only I enjoyed crafts my daughter's parties would be so awesome. : ) I love learning about all the birthday traditions and I will be bookmarking this for the pinata ideas. Smashing something to pieces and being rewarded with candy…That is a tradition I can get behind.
And very happy birthday to your son!
