Despite the everyday busyness of work, chores, and parenting, I’m happy that I can escape into a blog world filled with boy party ideas. I hope youre as inspired as I am when you see all the boyish charm in this round-up of my 10 favorite posts from this week. They include a winter ice skating party, a magic themed birthday party, a Mickey and Friends first birthday party, a superhero birthday, train party and space party. From our blog, I featured a great baby boy shower, a safari party and a hot air balloon birthday party.
MY FAVORITE BOY PARTIES AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
1.) From The Entertaining Shoppe , via Celebrations at Home: Winter Ice Skating Party This outdoor party has a simple, portable table set-up thats done in cozy reds and plaid. The party could be put together on short notice and still wow! I love the clever take-home, hot chocolate favors, too.
2.) From Little Wish Parties, via Amy Atlas: Magical 6th Birthday Party Cute cupcakes and card cookies are sweet, but the cake takes the cake! A supersized backdrop easily adds a lot of zing to the celebration. The little theatre set-up for a magic show presentation captured my attention. Plus, how cute would your little guy look in this magician’s costume at the party! It would be super cute to DIY it was well.
3.) From Eluccellino Designs, via Hostess with the Mostess: Mickey and Friends 1st Birthday Party Kid-happy bright colors and familiar, old friends produce an energy-infused celebration. A clever use of square paper plates as a dimensional backdrop works! Theres a wonderful table set-up here, too.
4.) From Kelly Batista, via Karas Party Ideas: Superhero 3rd Birthday Party An outstanding three-tiered cake and more bright colors combine in a fun theme. Oversized balloons and a terrific backdrop declare this is a party zone! I also like that the superheroes featured here are not the monstrous, oversized denizens, but more little kid-friendly looking.
5.) From Style My Table, via Amy Atlas: 2nd Birthday Train Party A unique color combo (for trains) of aqua and red coupled with a clean design gives this party a fresh look. A wooden train set curving along the table create a nice rhythm.
6.) From Fete a Feta, via Celebrations at Home: Outer Space Birthday Party Starshine and friendly aliens team up for a bright birthday in this party full of DIY ideas. I really like the suspended paper lanterns that have morphed into colorful planets. Plus, the birthday boy looks darling in his NASA outfit — which I’m sure is a big hit for make believe any day!
MY FAVORITE POSTS ON SPACESHIPS AND LASER BEAMS THIS WEEK:
7.) From GreyGrey Designs: Bun in the Oven Baby Shower A gender neutral baby shower with this much originality and charm is a rare gem! Theres a homey warmth offered in this party that invites you right in for joyous company.
8.) From Marabous: Jungle Safari Birthday Party This first birthday party captures a fun sense of adventure. Its full of interesting details and a merry music-making activity for the small fry.
9.) From The Sweet Society: Hot Air Balloon Birthday Party Like a breath of fresh air, this party pleases. Its bright and cheery, with a measure of whimsy and adventure. The awning topped dessert table is especially nice.
10.) From Tikkido: Gorgeous Thanksgiving Ideas These decorating ideas are elegant, inexpensive and easy-to-do ahead of time. That will leave you more time to dress the kids table too, as well as Mr. Tom.
MY FAVORITE PINS THIS WEEK: Each of these ideas can be done with your kids. Nothing looks too difficult and theres a great potential for making fun memories:
- DIY Silk Flowers into Turkeys – You probably already have everything you need for these cute Thanksgiving embellishments.
- Handprint Christmas Tree – This project is a little messy, but oh-so-worth-it cute!
- Snowmen Donuts – What kid wouldnt want to be told to play with his food? This is an activity and a snack all rolled into fun.
