No one would want to worm out of this party! Antler sheds, forest greenery, fishing bobbers, skipping stone favors and plaid camping blankets make this a boyishly handsome event. Themed cookies and treats look totally satisfying.

The clean-lined graphics over the dessert table immediately catch attention and there are some nice details to notice, too. That bridge holding treats is one of my favorite elements.

LEGO Themed Boy's Birthday Party

5. LEGO Themed Birthday Party

Brittany always comes up with great ways to create themed elements for all of her parties and this one is no exception. The dessert table backdrop and birthday cake presentation are my favorite ideas at this celebration.

Think you can’t use glitter and sparkle for a guy’s birthday? Sure looks great at this party and the disco vibe is certain to appeal to those hard-to-please tweens.

Summer Birthday Party

8. Pool Party

From Spaceships and Laser Beams 

One of our creative readers put together this bash for her twins—such colorful fun! Although the décor and refreshments are spot-on for a summer birthday bash, the cool ideas would work just as effectively at an off-site pool venue during cooler weather.

Who wants to spend tons of money on a party when they’ve just spent tons on school clothes and supplies?  Don’t nix celebrating the new school year—just use these budget-friendly ideas to create a stylish event.

Boy's Golf Birthday Party

10. Golf Themed Birthday Party

From Rebecca via Spaceships and Laser Beams

What’s the driving force behind this party?  Birthday boy’s devotion to golf and Mom’s devotion to the birthday boy! She aced it, too, with preppy colors, argyle patterns and polka-dots. Adorable!

Olympic Themed Birthday Party Ideas

11. Olympic Themed 4th Birthday

From Dolled Up Design via Spaceships and Laser Beams 

Although the Olympic theme is especially appealing during the official games, bright primary colors, activity/educational opportunities and awards for all participants make it a timeless theme. This event is especially charming with the decorated guest table and food displays.

Back to School Party

12. Colorful Back-to-School Party

From Sweet Bambini via Spaceships and Laser Beams 

Kids LOVE to play “school” so whether you are celebrating a return to classes or you’re looking for a fun theme, this Back-to-School event inspires. Colored pencil vases and a food display stand of wood rulers are perfect party supplies.

School Themed Baby Shower

13. Hello Teacher Baby Shower

From Whitney Smith Photography via Spaceships and Laser Beams 

Here’s another way to celebrate back-to-school, a birthday or a new baby—this one is sa-weet! Who wouldn’t want to eat on a lunchroom tray and munch on warm cookies and milk? Show-and-tell is the most fun and chalkboard ideas are the best!


  • PLASTIC BOTTLE HELICOPTER :: Plastic straws and a bottle never looked so good.
  • FOIL PRINTED FALL TREE :: Here’s a cool little art project that celebrates the season we’re heading into.
  • PAPER TUBE ANIMALS :: True confession: I’m not much of a fan of the paper tube crafts that are all over…BUT these little animals are cute! I think kids would have fun making them.
