10 Awesome Boy Birthday Party Themes

By  | Last Updated:  

It’s my first round up of boys birthday party ideas of the year. Can you believe it’s mid-January already? We were among those who lost power and phone service at home so it felt like I lost an entire week! Thankfully everything is back to normal and that means we can continue celebrating boyish charm together. Not everyone was out of commission as you can see from this terrific round-up of boy birthday parties: superheroes, Phineas and Ferb, birds and bees, a safari, a winter wonderland, sharks, elephants, a circus, a school bus, baseball and an adventure party were recently celebrated in blogland. Come, take a tour!

Boys Birthday Party Ideas - Superhero Comic Book Theme

1. From Candy and Cake via Hostess With the Mostess: Comic Book Superhero Birthday Party — A 6th birthday celebration with a convergence of heroes revs up boyish imaginations. I especially like the guest table with polka dot bottle wraps, individualized with various superhero logos, star plates and napkins, plus a cool comic book pennant flying over the table. Colorful!

2. From Feuza and Corina Silva Studios via Pretty My Party: Phineas and Ferb Surprise Birthday — This witty and colorful celebration was put together in three days—proving it doesn’t have to take months of planning to pull off a fun surprise.

Boys First Birthday Ideas - Jungle Safari Theme

3. From Blooming Table via Hostess With the Mostess: Jungle Safari 1st Birthday — Every detail of this party is delightful! An awesome paper tree backdrop, an entire zoo of stuffed animals, live plants and adorable treats are real standouts.

4. From Elianna Noelle Events via The Party Wagon: The Bird and the Bees Baby Shower — I like several of the sweet ideas in this shower, including “Mommy to ‘bee’ is nesting” and the ABC guest book. Guests were encouraged to choose a letter of the alphabet and then draw something to go with it to make a book for the toddler version of the baby being welcomed. The cake pops are mini works of art!

5. From ParteeBoo Party Designers via Creative Party Place: Winter Wonderland Party — A birthday bash in icy blue and white, with snowmen, penguins and sparkling lights looks like just the thing for a second birthday party at this time of year.

6. From Preparativos Lulu via Kara’s Party Ideas: Adventures of a Little Boy — I love this idea of adventure for a little guy. Newspaper hats, swords, capes, boats, planes, rockets—they’re all referenced in a charming highlight of boyhood adventure daydreams. Lots of blue and white balloons create quite an amazing blue sky background.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas - Yellow School Bus Theme

7. From Fab Details Events via Hostess With the Mostess: Yellow School Bus Party — The sunshiny yellow in this 3rd birthday celebration is cheerfully bright. A cute cake features a school bus and grey chevron. A yellow and white striped lemonade stand and school bus play tents make this party stand out.

8. From Zelicious via Spaceships and Laser Beams: A Shark Themed Birthday Party — A giant shark and his toothsome smile presides over this poolside celebration in the most benign way! A relaxing blue backdrop and lots of fun details make this party a winner.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas - Dumbo Theme

10. From Where the Green Grass Grows via Spaceships and Laser Beams: Dumbo Themed Birthday Celebration — Bright orange, red, yellow and blue trumpets tons of good wishes for a fortunate three-year-old. Oversized rick-rack and giant peanut cookies embellish a fun cake.


Are you ready for some new project ideas? One helps you recycle and make your little guy happy at the same time; the others could be used in a couple of ways.

DIY Stuffed Animal :: This pin is a visual only, but everything you’d need to know is illustrated for making a stuffed animal out of an orphaned sock.

Original Artwork :: Did you know a rolling pin could help you create original artwork or an awesome party backdrop?

DIY Corkboard :: Get organized by making your own corkboard. This chevron project would also work well for a party backdrop, too.

P.S. Here’s a bonus 11th party: From Hello My Sweet via Spaceships and Laser Beams: Vintage Circus Birthday — Common supplies used in an uncommon way produces an awesome party. With all of the terrific details, you might really think you’re standing under the Big Top.
