Best Kids Polka Dot Party Ideas

Here are some kids polka dot party ideas that may make you go wild and dotty when decorating for your next baby shower or birthday party. Cute polka dot party supplies are popping up everywhere. There's no shortage of plastic plates, invitations and tableware that are covered in dots of all colors. Some of the dotted decorations are so easy that you may want to try your hand at making your own polka dot party stuff.
One of the best handmade items to start with would be polka dot party invitations. All you need is some blank card stock and polka dots that you cut out yourself or you can skip the cutting and the glue by using stickers. The advantage in making your own homemade polka dot invitations is that you can design your own color scheme.

POLKA DOT PARTY INVITATIONS
Brown and pink polka dots on off-white or ivory invitations are one of my favorites. Brown and pink color color combinations have become so popular for both girls and boys in recent years. Isn't that wild? Who would have ever dreamed that pink would be a color for boys?

POLKA DOT PARTY TABLEWARE
Plastic or paper plates, cups, hats, balloons and banners come loaded with all the polka dots you could ever want. Decide what colors you want and you can bet that there is tableware available. Here's an idea for cheap polka dot tablecloths. Take wide white paper, cut it in squares the size best to fit your tables and stencil your own polka dots. Ready made polka dot party supplies like paper tablecloths are very inexpensive, but you might need to make your own baby shower or kids polka dot party ideas if you have tables in an odd size or if you can't locate polka dotted tablecloths in your color scheme.

There are a few party supplies and favors that you can make yourself with little more than some card stock, a hole puncher and some stickers. You can also buy large plastic bags of polka dot confetti. But here's one of those nifty kids polka dot party ideas that I promised, if you have a few handheld hole punchers and some bright colored construction paper why not let the kids occupy themselves by cutting out lots of paper polka dots? Let them come up with a few kids polka dot party ideas of their own. Even used construction paper makes great polka dot party confetti. After all who is going to go through the little paper polka dots one by one? You can buy a few bags of polka dot confetti at the party supplies store just to have as a backup in case the kids get tired of making their own polka dot party supplies. You can use the polka dot confetti to decorate the guest tables.

Speaking of polkadot centerpieces one of the kids polka dot party ideas that I like is to take dowel rods of different lengths with Styrofoam balls of varied sizes that have been spray-painted in Day-Glo or neon colors. You can cut a large Styrofoam ball in half to use as your oasis or anchor for your dowel rods with smaller polka dots on the ends. Cover your large Styrofoam ball with florist fabric or any paper with some cool kids polka dot party ideas and anchor it to your party table. You'll be amazed at how cool, modern and colorful these inexpensive centerpieces are. Hang some polka dot party streamers from the corners and sides of the room to the center of the room.

Add some large round lollipops, jawbreakers and gumballs to the treat bag along with your other polka dot party things and polka dot party favors.
