10 Birthday Parties Perfect for Boys

By  | Last Updated:  

When planning your boy’s birthday party, what sparks your imagination? Do you think about your son’s latest interest—that can change with the day of the week, you know—or do you go with something classically all-boy—or do you try to dream up something you’ve never seen before? Whatever way you go about it, I think visual inspiration is a terrific springboard.  You’re going to see some sweet ideas in this week’s round-up: puppy dogs and dinosaurs; bicycles and baseball; minions and racecars; a trash bash; and vintage gold and green. And for you Yanks, notice the awesome 4th of July celebration, too!
