Dora Themed Birthday Party

At age 2, it was all about Elmo. About to turn 3, my daughter’s favorite character was Dora the Explorer. So, of course, her third birthday party had a Dora theme.

Dora the Explorer themed goodies are abundant, so it was an easy theme to pull off.

We got all the party supplies – decorations, invitations, paper plates, etc. – at Party City.

We ordered a cake from our favorite local bakery, Royal Bakery, 4726 Telephone Road, Ventura. (805) 658-6030. This bakery will create any kind of themed cake you want. Just bring in the image you want to replicate (such as a paper plate or other item) and they will make it. And, their cakes and other baked goods are delicious.

Finding a costumed Dora character to come to the party took a little more searching. I eventually found a great entertainer at Parties by Stacey. The company is based in Los Angeles/SFV and travels all over (L.A. and Ventura County, maybe beyond) and offers a wide range of party services: characters, arts and crafts, magic, puppets, tea parties and more. For Siena’s party, a sweet clown girl entertained the kids with balloon animals, games and activities, and face painting. Then, she disappeared, and in a little while, out came “Adventure Girl” (aka, a Dora-type character). The kids loved her!

Last year Elmo. This year Dora. What will next year’s character be? I can’t wait to find out.
What themes have you had for your kids’ birthdays?
