Half Birthday Party Ideas

Half Birthday parties are for kids whose birthday's fall in December and January and have their birthday's are overshadowed by the holidays. 

A fun way to remember them and make their birthday special is to have a half birthday party. 

Set the date as close to 6 months from their real birthday as possible.

Half Birthday Invitations

On a blank note card make all the party information line up so that it is only on one side of the card.

Cut Birthday party invitations in two and send in 1/2 an envelope (be sure to include all the party information on the 1/2 card).

Start the party on the half hour i.e. 3:30.

Half Birthday Decoration Ideas
There are so many ways to decorate for a half birthday - here are just a few.
Decorate only half of the party room.  Decorate only half of the party table.  Decorate half of the room with streamers and the other half with helium balloons.  Buy heavy duty paper plates and cut them in half.  Fill drink cups only half full and if you serve appetizers or food only put them them on 1/2 of the serving tray / dish.  Or buy 1/2 Cup Measuring cups and serve drinks in them.  Decorate the party table with two tablecloths of different colors. 

Bake a cake and before frosting cut it in half.  Ice both halves completely (you will need extra frosting).

Wrap only half the box of the presents. 


Half Birthday Games
