Easy and Fun Ideas for an Ice Skating-themed Pre-Teen Birthday Party

Invitation and Decorations

Imagine the squeals of delight when guests receive a pretty Ice Skating Party invitation (1) like this one, all pretty in pink and blue. Then, when they arrive at the party venue, have the scene decked out in the same color combo – from the daintiest details on the tablescapes (2) to the tissue paper tassel garlands (3) draped on the walls and overhead.

Food and Sweet Treats

For a darling birthday cake (4), order (or make!) one topped with a pair of ice skates, and adorned with pink stars, bows, and a scalloped border. Match this with snowy-frosted cupcakes with personalized ice-skating toppers (5) – adorable as party favors, too.

To keep serving easy, prepare bite-size food items like these mini croques monsieur sandwiches (6) on wooden skewers. These would be yummy dipped in cups of hot home-made soup! Then, have vintage-style milk mugs holding snowflake lollipops (7) for each guest to fill with her choice of hot cocoa or warm milk.
