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. There’s a lot to think about: cakes and cupcakes, treats and decorations, favors and gifts. It’s 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.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas Garden Theme

1.) From Styled by Belle, via Hostess with the Mostess: Veggie Patch Birthday Party — Here’s 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.

Duck Dynasty Themed Boys Birthday Party Ideas

2.) From Lauren Haddox Design, via Kara’s 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!

Boys Birthday Party Ideas Madagascar Theme

4.) From ParteeBoo, via Kara’s 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.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas Frog Theme

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.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas Farm Theme

7.) From Amy Nation, via Kara’s Party Ideas: Farm Themed Birthday Party — Cute and friendly farm animals populate this boy’s second birthday celebration. It’s 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 boy’s 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.


Boys Birthday Party Ideas Superhero Theme

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.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas Pirate Theme

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.

Boys Birthday Party Ideas Construction Theme

10.) From Styled by Belle: Boy’s 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.
