Birthday parties are all about festive fun with family and friends, honoring the last 365 days and marking a year of learning and growing ahead! Although birthday bashes are fun, party planning ushers in its share of stress. We are here to relieve your party planning worries with DIY birthday party decorations that set the mood, help you stand out from the pack, and leave you to the real task — focusing on the birthday boy or girl.


Whether you are looking to adorn sweet treats, create a whimsical photo opportunity, or come up with games that will keep kids engaged, we have a wealth of ideas. So, get out and conquer those sidewalks, eat some cake, and celebrate the big day with Radio Flyer, because our free DIY birthday party decorations save time, money and energy!


1) Start with Adorable Invitations

Get your guests excited for the upcoming celebration with our Radio Flyer invitations! Print these customizable invitations to spark your guests’ imaginations. You can also inspire your partygoers to continue the party at home with these play-inducing thank you cards.


2) Make a Birthday Banner

Of all the days of the year, birthdays are when little ones should feel extra-special. Both smile-worthy and festive, our red birthday banner garland strikes just the right tone. Want to take it to the next level? You can add a name by downloading the full alphabet, from A to Z.


3) Add a Sweet Touch to Your Cupcakes

Give sweet treats flair with our cute cupcake toppers. Featuring a mix of numerals and iconic red wagons, they’re a must-have addition to gatherings.


4) Spice Up Your Food and Drink Station

Add an extra dose of fun to your food and drink stations with our DIY food signs! Not only can you assign playful names, guests can easily identify your delicious treats and drinks.


5) Include Interactive Games

Everyone knows kids can get restless. That’s where our pin the wheel on the wagon game comes into play. Just blindfold your guests, give them a spin, and compete for a prize!


6) Plan Fun Activities for the Whole Family!

Get guests to stay until twilight thanks to our fire fly challenge cards. Simply print them up, attach them to mason jars and let the insect-chasing begin.
