If you have a child that loves animals a Veterinarian Birthday Party might be the perfect theme this year! From decor to activities, here are some fun ideas. 
My youngest recently turned six years old, and requested a veterinarian themed birthday party. Though his request didn’t surprise me (coming from my aspiring vet), I was a little thrown as to how to put that theme together.
Pinterest was my friend, and I gathered ideas from a few different sites, a local friend, and a little of my own ideas mixed with some specific requests from my son. I was really pleased with the outcome!

The Vet himself, Dr. Simon. He had requested a doctor’s coat as his main requirement. I had a friend embroider it and it made a great part of his birthday gift!
great kid's party theme, this veterinarian birthday party was a hit!

The Decor

Butcher paper is your friend. It is also a great backdrop for your banner. My friend, Danie, custom made this super cute name sign and the food signs. I just printed them off at home, and pasted them to the butcher paper. (You can grab a free printable here.)

I put Simon’s toy vet kit on the table and set his personalized cookie inside. The kid table was covered with a cute paw print cover I found online a couple years ago for another party, and was able to re-use.

Our snacks were part of the decor, as well: graham crackers – “bandages” & giant marshmallows “cotton balls“.
The guests could pick from adorable dog, pig, or cow cookies, as well.

The most fun part of the party was when the special “guests” arrived for the kids to learn about and pet:

Our sweet neighbor Hayden brought her bunny, “Buttercup”, and told the kids all about her.
