What a joy to be able to celebrate our sons with special boy birthday parties! The fun of deciding on theme ideas and anticipating their excitement makes it worth all the work. Theres a lot to think about: cakes and cupcakes, treats and decorations, favors and gifts. Its worth it! I hope you find inspiration in some of my favorite parties from this week. They include a veggie patch gardening party, a barnyard farm birthday party, a Madagascar birthday, a ice cream party for boys, a duck hunter party that would work great for Duck Dynasty fans, a pirate birthday party, construction party and a superhero training party.
MY FAVORITE BOYS BIRTHDAY PARTIES AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
1.) From Styled by Belle, via Hostess with the Mostess: Veggie Patch Birthday Party Heres an unusual boy party theme that is filled with charming details! The amazing dessert table looks like a miniature garden, filled with realistic kid sized tools. All of the realistic vegetables are an assortment of cookies growing in a plot of dark, rich chocolate cake crumbs. Healthy food and fresh juices will please kids and their moms, too. Clever party activities dovetail nicely with the theme.
2.) From Lauren Haddox Design, via Karas Party Ideas: Duck Hunt Birthday Party This masculine theme celebration will appeal to nature lovers and duck hunters. The duck-on-a-pond cake is especially noteworthy; even the interior looks good in a camouflage pattern! Brown, tan, green and orange are combined in the duck blind decorations. A novel birthday breakfast bar is a welcome way to celebrate.
3.) From Hildebrandt Photography, via Home Confetti: Vintage Mustache Birthday Party Punny party printables (how many times can you say that?!) make fun appearances throughout this celebration. The colors, crates and suitcases used for serving produce a unique spin on a popular theme. There are so many great mustache themed party supplies that planning your party will be easy!
4.) From ParteeBoo, via Karas Party Ideas: Madagascar Birthday Party This theme is amusing because of the character personalities. Alex and friends are escaping from a crate box cake; comical penguins pose atop cupcakes. An over-the-top dessert table is book ended by balloon palm trees to present a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Plus, I could not resist including it because I have probably watched each of the three Madagascar movies a hundred time in the past four years.
5.) From Partylicious: A Froggy Birthday We’ve featured many of Carol’s jaw dropping parties on our blog and this one’s another great example of her inspiring work. I really like the brilliant use of balloons as the dessert table backdrop in this party. The balloon frog columns flanking the table are pretty amazing, too. Lily pads, water foam, waves, and dirt are all referenced on the cake with great effect; a winsome frog tops it all.
6.) From The Little Soiree: Ice Cream Birthday Party If your boy likes frozen confections he will be over the moon with this ice cream bar, which features about 20 toppings! This bright and cheerful party also offers beautiful savory and dessert tables for a first-rate gala.
7.) From Amy Nation, via Karas Party Ideas: Farm Themed Birthday Party Cute and friendly farm animals populate this boys second birthday celebration. Its full of color and fun details; even the straws are noteworthy because of the variety of animal images used. I especially liked the way the birthday boys initial was built out of miniature tractor wheels to serve as the centerpiece of the favor table. The hands on decorate your own tractor kit is also a great activity idea.
MY FAVORITE BOY BIRTHDAY PARTY POSTS ON THE BLOG THIS WEEK:
8.) From Creative Designs by Toni: Superhero Training Academy 4th Birthday Party A remarkable execution of a familiar theme produced a party full of fun activities to spark a child’s imaginations. I can envision the kids building on the play themes and using the party favors long after the party is over. Don’t forget the superhero capes before the guests arrive.
9.) From Lottie and Me: Pirate Themed 5th Birthday Party The clever dessert table inside a pirate ship captured my attention immediately. It’s stunning. Chests full of costumes, jewels and gold make this whole banquet a treasure. The birthday boy is sure to look darling in this pirate outfit as he greets guests.
10.) From Styled by Belle: Boys Construction Birthday Party Belinda seems to specialize in clever! Novel display ideas, marvelous treats and engaging, age appropriate activities produce a delightful take on this theme.
