In need of thoughtful and cute LOL Surprise! party ideas for your kid’s party? We get it! LOL Surprise! is a series of adorable dolls that have become incredibly popular with younger kids. If you’re unsure why, exactly, these dolls have taken the world of children’s toys by storm, ET Online has a clear explanation. “Beyond the quirky and cute style of each doll, users are also treated to an ‘influencer-like’ unboxing experience that features additional surprises outside of their new fashion friend . . . Not only are users gifted with a new doll, but they get the enjoyment of unboxing secret accessories and styles, and expanding their LOL Surprise! Doll universe with bigger add-ons for the characters, like cars, dollhouse mansions and more.”
With that in mind, it definitely makes sense that kids of this generation would enjoy these dolls, and perhaps even want a LOL Surprise!-themed party for their next birthday. So here are 12 LOL Surprise! party ideas that’ll help you celebrate your little one in style. Also, in the course of reading this list, keep an eye out for examples of some great event venues you can rent through Peerspace, the largest online marketplace for these types of rentals.
Even though you’re probably not going to be able to find a specifically LOL Surprise!-themed venue, you can definitely find one that will go well with your on-theme decor. We’d suggest going colorful and perhaps a little bit girly with your choice of event venue rental on Peerspace.
As an example of the kind of space we’re talking about, this colorful Victorian home in Cincinnati, Ohio, is ideal. It’s an absolutely beautiful space that can accommodate up to 50 people at a time. One reviewer who hosted a birthday party here wrote of the space, “India was a fantastic host and very helpful and accommodating. The space is beautiful and unique and a great space to host an event. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for space to host and event!”
Balloons are a super simple way to add colorful, on-theme decor to just about any party, which is why they’re one of our top LOL Surprise! party ideas. For instance, we love the LOL Surprise! Together 4-Eva foil balloon bouquet from Party City, but just a quick search online will turn up dozens of theme-appropriate options for balloons alone.
There is no particular color scheme or pattern associated with LOL Surprise! dolls as a whole. But one thing is for sure – they’re always extremely colorful. Draw inspiration from their rainbow color palette by serving colorful treats and drinks. The Decorated Cookie has a super helpful list of 40 rainbow food ideas that would be a great start.
