Tips & Ideas For you Boy's Birthday Party Celebration
Pick A Theme for Your Party Decorations
A theme can help you coordinate all the aspects of your party including fun invitations, room decorations, activities, games, tableware, cake design and favors. When you start with a theme, you can then work through the typical checklist of things you will need to plan the event from beginning to end. We've got dozens of themes to choose from, including ones inspired by sports, toys, "when I grow up" occupations, and make believe days!
Send A Boy-Friendly Invitation
We all know how little boys are - they generally have the attention span of only seconds! Therefore, if you send an birthday invitation that is exciting and colorful, it is more likely to leave an impression on him. This is especially important if you have your own little boy deliver these invitations to his friends at school - these invitations end up getting tucked into backpacks, so decorate them up with stickers that match the theme of the party so it gets found and delivered to the mom!
Plan Activities for Both Boys and Girls
It is amazing how many girls attend birthday parties for boys - sisters, cousins, and yes, sometimes even girls as friends! Make sure there's something fun for everyone to do. Some of our favorite ideas include planning treasure hunts, shirt or cupcake decorating, and board games. Here’s a great list of activities to use as inspiration:
- Take a field trip – if you are hosting an animal themed party, consider visiting a zoo, animal park, or aquarium.
- Get active – visit a place to rent boats, go bowling, visit a roller skating rink, or go to an indoor climbing wall.
- Have a fun competition – find something that boys and girls can both do well, like driving go-carts.
