Planning a Dora Birthday Party

Dora the Explorer is a popular character with little girls. It's no wonder so many are demanding Dora be the feature of their next birthday party. Here are tips to help in your planning.

Dora's color theme isn't as easy as others, but over all you'll want to have mostly pink. Since most little girls love the color pink, this shouldn't be a problem.

Orange and purple are two other color options as well, since Dora wears a purple shirt with orange shorts. Also, "Backpack" is purple while "Boots the Monkey" wears red boots. Pink, orange, and purple should be your main colors though.

Be sure you have the following in a Dora theme, or the above mentioned colors:

- Cake
If you are making your own cake, finding a topper shouldn't be too hard. Just take a trip down the toy aisle and find a small Dora toy.

- Ice Cream
This can be basic, but as an extra treat you can offer Dora ice cream which features the face of Dora (yes this can be found at the store sometimes!)

- Plastic Forks and Spoons
Be sure you have them on hand. Utensils don't have to follow the theme. But if you need to buy them anyway, check for a colors in pink or purple.

- Plates and Napkins
These should feature Dora, and you can order them online if you can't find it. If all else fails or you are pressed for time, grab some that follow the color scheme.

- Decorations
This is pretty open, but try to find streamers and balloons in pink and purple. Most stores sell balloons in packs of one or two colors.

- Invitations
If your daughter is inviting friends, this is a must. Grab invitations which feature Dora, Boots, and other characters. Save one behind for your scrapbook if need be!

Remember this party if for your daughter, so be sure to get her involved!
