MY FAVORITE RECENTLY DISCOVERED BOY PARTIES FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD
1. THE PARTY WALL :: Boy’s Ninja Themed Birthday Party – Bold colors and an extensive, beautifully presented menu captured my attention right away—even the napkins were folded into ninja stars! I was also impressed by the themed activities that were educational as well as engaging. An awesome, unique party!
2. PETITE SOCIAL via CELEBRATIONS AT HOME :: Safari Themed Birthday Party – The collection of animal prints on everything from dessert table to favor bags to guest tables looks awesome. Also notice the interesting textures in décor choices—burlap, paper, metal, wood.
3. MICHELLE’S PARTY PLAN-IT :: Indiana Jones Themed Party – This celebration wasn’t for a boy’s birthday but it certainly could be. With such a cool theme, I just had to include it this time. It’s a great combo of adventure-scary-vintage and boys would love it.
4. BLOOM DESIGNS :: Strikes and ‘Staches Birthday Party – Hey, man, what a cool idea for a guy’s bowling themed birthday celebration! Jenny makes it stylish fun with a dessert table filled with round treats and milk bottles masquerading as bowling pins. Including fake mustaches for added manliness? Awesome!
5. PRETTY POSH EVENTS via HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS :: Boy’s Racecar Themed Birthday – Cars, bright colors, car-shaped lunch boxes, racing helmet party hats, car-embellished treats—yup—boys will like this one.
6. SUGAR COATED CANDY BUFFETS via LITTLE BIG COMPANY :: Firetruck Party – No need to sound the alarm over a party as cute as this! That mile-high cake and red tower of donuts are especially noteworthy. Can’t forget about impressive cupcakes and cookies, either. Lots of nice details here.
