Birthdays are fun, why not celebrate the half!? These Half Birthday Party Ideas are perfect for the young and hold – ages 6 months to 100 years plus!
Half Birthday Party Ideas
A half birthday celebration is a bit of a new thing… at least, I think. It is new to me! Basically, half birthday are adding six months to your birthday and celebrating the halfway milestone. Often they are recognized for young babies when they turn six months, but they are becoming more and more of a thing for young kids and even adults. My youngest kids (the twins) birthday is a few days away from Christmas, so think having a small June celebration, even if only a dinner a dessert, would be a fun way to celebrate them when the busy season doesn’t over shadow their birthday. If your child has a summer birthday, a half birthday is a way to recognize it when friends are not traveling or perhaps in the classroom.
