What child doesn't love pizza? And if they love pizza, they'll definitely love your pizza party! These fun and tasty party ideas – including pizza party invitations, pizza decorations, recipes, pizza party games, and more – will have all your guests feeling like they’ve landed in Italy!
Girls and boys aged six through twelve just love a kids pizza party ... especially if they can make the pizza themselves!
For peace of mind, begin planning your pizza birthday bash six to eight weeks in advance. This will allow you time to gather all the supplies that you need, including pizza party decorations, gifts, and menu items. Planning ahead also gives your guests time to RSVP and make travel plans, if needed. Don't panic if you find yourself short on time; you can still plan a great party! Planning ahead simply reduces the risk of conflicts with guests' plans and may increase your pizza party’s attendance.
For pizza party invitations, use white card stock or construction paper folded in half, and decorate it with pizza picture cutouts or pizza party stickers. You can also use our easy, printable party invitations. Or, if you’re short on time, purchase personalized or pre-printed pizza party invitations online. We recommend mailing your invitations three to four weeks prior to the party—any sooner and your guests may forget, any later and your guests may already have plans.
To simplify the rest of the party planning process, check out our Party Planning Timeline, , and read the paragraphs below for information on selecting pizza party supplies, pizza party games, and more for your child's party.
What You’ll Need
If you plan to use paper tableware and pizza party supplies, our Suggested Party Supply List may be quite helpful. Please note that you may not need everything on the list; it is intended only as a guide.
For a pizza birthday party, think red and white (with some oranges mixed in) as your main color scheme. Simple white and red balloons and pretty pastel streamers work perfectly. For goodie bags, purchase pizza stickers, rolling pins, chefs' hats, assorted candies, and other pizza favors. Place all of these items inside clear or printed cellophane bags, and tie the bags closed with pretty, pastel-colored ribbons.
