Guinea Pig Party
Guinea pig party ideas are a fun way to celebrate your guinea pig’s birthday. But guinea pig parties are also a great party theme for those guinea pig lovers out there. In fact, my 8-year-old now wants a guinea pig party theme for her next birthday.
We’ve made lots of decorations and have included them in this article as free downloads so that you can enjoy them too.

Guinea Pig Decorations
We created some fun guinea pig decorations for our guinea pig party. We set up a party table with a white tablecloth and a fake turf table runner.
I made a green and white guinea pig banner and some matching water bottle labels, cupcake toppers, and gift tags.
All of these free guinea pig party decorations can be downloaded at the bottom of this article.
Guinea Pig Cupcake Toppers
Here are our fun guinea pig cupcake toppers. Simply download, print and cut out. I personally love square cupcake toppers (instead of round) as they are so much easier to cut out…and they look just as good.
Once they are cut out, you can sticky tape them to a cake pop stick or toothpick.
There are 12 cupcake toppers per letter size / A4 size page. Make sure your printer settings are set to “portrait” orientation and “fit to page” before printing. Your printable page will look similar to the image below.
Guinea Pig Birthday Banner
This guinea pig banner was so much fun to make and so easy to decorate with.
The banner is 6 pages in total with 2 bunting flags per letter size or A4 size page as seen below. So 12 flags in total. You can print them as many times as you like to get the desired banner size.
Please make sure that your printer settings are set to “landscape” orientation and “fit to page” before printing. Your printable page will look similar to below.
It’s so easy to put this banner together. Once printed, simply cut out the triangles. You can either add string with a hole punch to hang these on the wall.
I recommend using washi tape when hanging on the wall. Or use blu tack to stick each flag to the wall.
Guinea Pig Water Bottle Labels
These guinea pig water bottle labels were super easy to make. Simply download, print, cut out and stick to your water bottle with sticky tape. If you want to make the labels waterproof, you can use clear contact paper over the top of the label.

There are 3 labels per letter size or A4 size paper. Make sure that your printer settings are set to “landscape” and “fit to page” to make sure that they print properly. Your printed page will look similar to the image below. Print as many as you need.
Guinea Pig Gift Tags
If you are giving out party favors at your party, then you will love these guinea pig gift tags. They are also great to attach to gifts for guinea pig lovers.
There are two different swing tags below. The first has “thank you for coming to my party”. The second tag has a matching guinea pig picture to match the rest of the decoration set.
Please make sure that your printer settings are set to “portrait” and “fit to page” when printing these on letter size or A4 size paper. You could also print them on a thin cardstock if you prefer. Simply hole punch and attach a curling ribbon and they are ready to go.
Guinea Pig Cake
What’s a party without a guinea pig cake? Of course, not just for us humans, but a special vegetable birthday cake for any guinea pigs as well.
Firstly, the cake for the humans!
My kids and I had so much fun decorating these guinea pig birthday cakes. We made two rectangular chocolate cakes and tried to cut them into a rough guinea pig shape. We added buttercream icing, smarties for ears and chocolate buds for eyes. We also had some green shredded coconut for grass.
We tried to make the icing color match our actual guinea pigs. It wasn’t easy, but it was fun. Our cakes won’t win any awards but we loved them.
But why should we have all the fun? As it was a first birthday party for two of our guinea pigs, we thought it was only fair that we made a guinea pig birthday cake for them too.
Birthday Cakes for Guinea Pigs
We made our guinea pig birthday cake out of their favorite foods: watermelon, cucumber, carrot and coriander.
As you can see in the photo below, we cut the veges into a cake shape and stacked them up with a candle in the middle. (We didn’t light the candle of course – it was just for fun!).
They loved it so much. In fact, Lucky finished all the coriander before we finished singing Happy birthday to her.
Here are some more guinea pig cake photos enjoying their birthday cake.
We also made super cute guinea pig party hats for them.
