Peppa Pig is one of our favourite pre-school party themes and to celebrate the arrival of our brand new Peppa Pig party supplies, today we’re going to show you how to throw a super special Peppa Pig birthday party!
This bright and colourful party theme is perfect for young children who are fans of the show and gives you the perfect opportunity to mix and match official Peppa Pig partyware with some unique party DIYs!
So whether you’ve already chosen this party theme or you’re still looking for inspiration, read on for decorating ideas, party games, party food ideas and more!
Planning your Peppa Pig birthday party
Send out invitations
Start your party with these cute Peppa Pig invitations and send them out around 6 weeks before the party to give your guests enough notice to clear their schedules for the party of the year 😉
Choose your tableware
Next, pick up all your essentials likes plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths. Themed tableware will be the foundation of your party and give you a good colour scheme to work from.
We chose these cute and colourful Peppa Pig party supplies featuring Peppa and George, and then used the colours on the plates to choose the rest of our colour scheme. A multi-coloured colour scheme works great for Peppa Pig so anything goes – red, green, blue, yellow, pink… it’s up to you! We particularly like a pastel coloured theme though.
Make pig snout cups
This cute party craft is SO easy and will match a Peppa Pig party theme perfectly. Simply stick our free printables onto the bottom of plain pink paper cups to turn them into pig snouts!
Make Peppa Pig house party boxes
Party boxes are a great way to serve party food as everything can be prepped in advance. And to make yours match your party theme, you could decorate plain white party boxes with our free printables to turn them into Peppa Pig’s house! So cute and so easy to do!
The next step of our Peppa Pig party ideas is decorations! Peppa *has* to feature heavily in your decorations so we’d recommend mixing and matching some official Peppa Pig balloons (and maybe some Peppa and George cuddly toys!) with a couple of DIY party decorations.
We love this giant Peppa Pig balloon – what a centrepiece!
This balloon is cute too!
Make your own Peppa Pig pom poms
Simply assemble your pom poms and use sticky tape to fasten a mask to the string that will be used to hang each one from the ceiling. Then cut out our printable arms and legs and stick them on! Fluffing out a pom pom can be quite time-consuming so we’d recommend making these the day before your party.
Peppa Pig party food ideas
Now your Peppa Pig party decorations are all done, it’s time to think about party food! Themed party food always makes a buffet extra special and it doesn’t take more extra work. Here are our favourite ideas for a Peppa Pig birthday bash:
- M&S Percy Pigs
- Pink chocolate pigs
- Pink lemonade
- Turn ordinary pink cups into pig snouts by drawing two black nostrils on the bottom of each cup
- Make cookies using farm animal cookie cutters
- Serve your food in cute mini favour pails like these
- Muddy milkshakes (chocolate milkshake with our free printables stuck on each bottle)
How about decorating your cupcakes with Percy Pigs to turn them into Peppa Pig cupcakes?! Or decorating chocolate cupcakes with jelly worms to make them look like muddy puddles?
Plan some fun party games
Finally, make sure you’ve got a good selection of party games up your sleeve to keep everyone entertained! Here’s a selection of our favourite Peppa Pig party games.
Pass the parcel
This colouring set would be a brilliant pass the parcel prize.
How about putting a Peppa Pig twist on musical chairs with this musical puddles game? Download our free printable puddles and play it exactly like musical chairs – when the music stops, you must stand on a puddle and whoever’s left without one is out! Take away one puddle after each round until you’re left with a winner.
Peppa Pig treasure hunt
Treasure hunts always go down well so we’ve put our own Peppa Pig twist on them with these free printable treasure hunt cards. Print out a set for each child (there are six different colours) and hide each card. Whoever can find their whole set first wins!
Pin the tail on the piggy
This game puts a fun twist on the classic kids’ party game pin the tail on the donkey! All you need is a cardboard cutout of Peppa Pig, blue tac and some pink cardboard to cut into the shape of a tail. Give each child a tail with their name on and one by one let them take it in turns to stick Peppa’s tail in the right place while blindfolded. Whoever sticks theirs closest, wins a prize!
An oinking contest can be lots of fun – simply get your guests to practise their best oinks and give out prizes for the loudest, most realistic, etc.
This game will be perfect if you’re lucky enough to hold your party outside. All you need is a couple of pairs of wellies, plenty of space and something to mark out the starting line. One by one let the children fling a welly and whoever’s travels the furthest, wins a prize!
