10 Birthday Parties for Boys He Will Love

By  | Last Updated:  

Once upon a time, a mom in need of awesome boy birthday party ideas climbed on board a Spaceship. She zoomed around the neighborhood looking for the best themes and decorations. She was amazed at what she found: minions were camping; Cookie Monster tried to climb in Noah’s ark, but the Teddy bears wouldn’t let him; super heroes ran AWAY from NYC and joined the circus; so…the cowboys were to meet at the corner store to save the world but they wouldn’t and flexed their muscles while hanging out at the beach instead! That mom was glad to return to earth where things make sense and people aren’t crazy (it was an alternate universe). She ate birthday cake and lived happily ever after. The end.

I need a vacation!

Enjoy this week’s terrific parties!
