What to wear to a Children´s birthday party

What to wear to a Children´s birthday party

Once we hit 30, and specially when we become a mother, our social life changes drastically and your social events will be tones of kid´s birthday parties!

Children’s Birthday Parties will be to moms “the social event”, aka the place to be with our girl friends and the place to meet new people, meaning new moms, and of course the place where a lot of photos will be taken, so looking good is totally necessary.


The problem is how can we even think in looking good if we are going to stress out most of the time dealing with damage control, because we have to be honest there´s a lot that can go wrong. Last year my 5 year old son birthday party was suppose to be perfect, and believe me I worked hard for perfection, but my efforts were in vain, and I choose the worst day of that year. Was raining cats an dogs the entire time, and I had 25 children and I don´t even know how many parents inside the house! Needless to say it was insane, but incredibly my son found everything normal and loved the party. I just love him! :)

However I kept my principle, being a chic and elegant mother to receive all my guests at my son’s party. I think that if we don´t get dressed up for our son´s birthday party what else we will dressed up for? He´s wedding?!?! I just like to dress up, and if I have an excuse (as if I need one) better, and thank God I did it because my son told me that I looked like a princess! 😉


So what are we going to wear to such a social event, It’s not exactly like dressing for an adult birthday party, kids are messy, chocolate faces can decide to hug our legs at any moment, and usually this parties involve some form of activity that doesn’t exactly mesh well with heels or cute dry-clean only dresses.


Some moms worry about looking good, for fear that people will ask “why are you all dolled up?” Well, just ignore them, they can be tagged in their oversized sweatpants, and risk being compared to Shrek while you will look Fabulous!


We all want to leave a good impression, so dress to have fun, try to wear something you normally wouldn’t in your everyday routine and don´t worry about wearing something daring! Meaning, wear that statement skirt, wear that T-shirt with fun prints, wear those flatforms/wedges to give you some height (you may want to stay away from the stilettos though!), and incorporate some funny and colorful accessories that are out of the ordinary.

Here we leave some chic and practical solutions, to make everyone look fabulous at a  children´s party.
