In the Northern Hemisphere, March signals the start of Spring. It’s the perfect time for a Hello Spring party. Spring signals the time for rebirth of warmer weather so why not have a party to celebrate.

March Birthday Ideas

People that celebrate their birthday in March have either the star sign of Pisces (1 – 20 March) or Aries (21 – 31 March).  You could have a Pisces themed party celebrating that special Pisces human in your life. It’s hard to find Pisces party decorations in your local store so here are some great Pisces themed cake decorations to make your party extra special.

Likewise if you’re looking for  themed birthday decorations check out this awesome Aries confetti for table scatter decorations. They also have all the other star signs too.

March Birthday Party Ideas

A favorite and fun party theme that would suit a March party is a Celebrity Dress Up party. The catch is that the famous person you dress up as must also have a March birthday. But to make it easier, if you choose an actor you can dress up as a character they played in a movie. Examples of this are Lucy Lawless – you could dress up as Xena Warrior Princess or Daniel Craig – why not dress up as James Bond?

Male celebrities / famous figures that were born in March include: Elton John, Quentin Tarantino, Justin Bieber, Albert Einstein, Bruce Willis, Vincent Van Gogh, Anthony Davis, Daniel Craig, Ron Howard, Ewan McGregor, Kurt Russell, Matthew Broderick, Rob Lowe, William Shatner, Gary Oldman, Chuck Norris, Michael Caine, Alexander Graham Bell, Jerry Lewis, Chris Martin, Steven Tyler, Michelangelo, Al Gore, Tommy Hilfiger, Harry Houdini, Jon Bon Jovi.

Female celebrities / famous figures that were born in March include: Lady Gaga, Liza Minnelli, Reese Witherspoon, Mariah Carey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Keira Knightley, Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes, Rebel Wilson, Jennifer Grey, Diana Ross, Eva Longoria, Queen Latifah, Aretha Franklin, Sharon Stone, Tracy Chapman, Lucy Lawless.

March Party Themes

Thank you to timeandate and daysoftheyear  are a lot of interesting party theme ideas based on some fun, weird and wonderful International Days in March.

It’s also Procrastination Week from 2 – 9 March; so if you were thinking of having that party in March…why not put it off until April??  Read on for some fun ideas for March themed parties.

St Patrick’s Day Party

Coffee Party

Barista Day (1 March) and Caffeine Awareness Month March 

(No it’s not being aware that you need another cup of coffee, it’s being aware of how much caffeine in food and drink you are consuming a day. – So it could be helpful to make sure that there are decaf options at your party too for those who feel they are overloaded.)

Anyhow…if you fall into the ‘need more coffee’ category then a coffee party theme is a fun way to celebrate that next special occasion. You could set up a Starbucks-insprired type coffee station with party printables like this awesome set up below.

Craft Party

(Craft Month – March)

A Craft Party theme is a great idea for those who love to make things. It could suit all ages not just for kids – a craft party could be a great choice for adults too. Perhaps a Mister Maker craft party for young children…or niche it down to a painting party or paper mache party.

For adults a ‘Make and Take Party’ is always lots of fun. If you provide the supplies with the instructions all the party guests could create something amazing or useful whilst enjoying your hospitality. Or buy a couple of cheap easils and grab some paints and a couple of bottles of wine and have a paint and sip party. It’s lots of fun and your guests will have something to take home afterwards to remember how awesome your party was.

Trash to Treasure Party

Old Stuff Day (2 March)   

A Trash to Treasure party is a great way to get rid of old clothing and other items that you once loved but now no longer need. If you believe someone else might love the items as much as you once did – bring it along to the party.

Have other people bring their pre-loved items and see what treasures you can find. Simply, serve light refreshments and you have an easy and productive party idea.

Absinthe Party

Absinthe Day (5 March)

Absinthe Day celebrates the lift of the 95 year old ban of this infamous alcoholic drink. You can find more information about Absinthe here. A very bohemian Absinthe party would be totally fun and unique way to theme an adult’s party.

Have everyone wear green (as the drink is also known as the green fairy). Make sure you have lots of dry ice around the tables to decorate and lots of green or stylish bohemian decorations.

Of course you’ll need an  Absinthe fountain to be the centerpiece and talking point of the party. Or if you really want to level up your party (or relaxing end of the day chill out) check out these amazing Absinthe glasses. 

These glasses are even better than the fountains in my opinion as you will not need any other accessories to enjoy your drink – they are a stylish all in one glass that make drinking Absinthe a breeze.

Cereal Killer Party

Cereal Day (7 March)

Know someone that loves their cereal so much that you really should throw them a cereal killer party? (Interesting play on words – but I can’t imagine throwing the other kind of serial party). Let’s stick with Kelloggs shall we!  Even if you don’t have a party theme per se but you bust out some cakes with these awesome toppers in their honor they will love them.

Silent Reading Party

Return Borrowed Books Week (3-9 March) & World Storytelling Day (20 March)

Have you thought of hosting a Silent Reading Party? This type of party doesn’t have to be at your home but of course it could be.

Simply invite people with instructions to bring their favorite book or the book they are currently reading and let them know the duration of the party, particularly the silent part. You can serve refreshments afterwards, when the silent part is over.

Have some quiet classical music playing in the background, lots of comfy cushions or chairs and enjoy! You might want to add a twist to the party where everyone must bring a gift of another book to gift to another guest at the party. The books can be displayed and each guest can choose the book they would like to take home.

Paella Party

Spanish Paella Day (27 March)

If you want to cut costs have everyone bring some chicken or seafood of their choice to add to the huge paella dish.  You’re definitely going to need a large paella pan or set for this party’s banquet, especially if you’re making it for a crowd! Unfortunately, I don’t have a favorite recipe to share but google it and see what takes your fancy.
