    Some great links there. I did both a Jungle Safari (which I somehow never blogged!) and a Farm party last year for both of mr boys. Finding a good theme for boys can be a challenge.

    So many fabulous parties!! LOVE the compilation! :)

    This is perfect timing for me. Next month is the little man’s 7th birthday and today I decided was the day to start planning it.

    I think the Cowboy parties sounds right up my alley. So cute!

    What a great collection of ideas!!! Why is it that “boy” things are always so hard?? Hugs, antonella :-)

    Thanks for compiling all these ideas! There are some really good ones in there. Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with good themes for boys. My son turned 1 a few months ago and I did a vintage toy party for him (http://marigoldmom.com/?p=2920).

    I just tried to pin this page & Pinterest gave me an error message saying the page was blocked b/c it had been reported as inappropriate material! What on earth? Are they kidding? More importantly why would someone report this??

    I just thought I should let you know in case there’s anything that can be done about it!

      hmm… very strange. i haven’t heard of that before. thanks for the heads up!! have a great weekend!

    THANK YOU so much for this amazing round up. As a person who only grew up with sisters, I have really struggled to “get” the whole boy thing, especially as my son gets older. I SO appreciate you putting this together. My son will soon be having a camping party of his own. Yipee!!

  23. terri posted on July 9, 2013 at 10:27 pm (#

    We had a bird party last year for my youngest. This year he had a rainbow party, and my oldest had an outer space party. We’ve done dinosaurs for him as well. Boy parties can be super fun!

    I love masks. I notice that children also love them. Hence I teamed up with another dad and created a website that lets you create animal masks for your children. You can resize them and even set them to outline mode so your children can colour them in. Then you just print them on your home printer. It’s a bit of a side project and we would love you feedback on them if you get the chance. We’ve got a bunch of free masks on there so it wont cost you anything to try it out for us. http://maskmakerapp.com/en

    very beautiful party picture, really awesome 

  29. lyn posted on October 16, 2014 at 7:23 am (#

    These are indeed awesome party ideas, but why have you separated them into ‘boys’ and ‘girls’?
    I have a 5 year old daughter who would love all but the military “boys” parties.  Please don’t assume that girls don’t like superheroes or gardening or any of the others.

    • Jamielyn posted on October 27, 2014 at 8:06 pm (#

      Hi Lyn! I agree, these definitely could be interchangeable, we just separated them based on if they were used at a girl or boys birthday from the different blogs. :)

  30. Trish posted on October 21, 2014 at 1:11 pm (#

    Great ideas! I think my girls would even like some of these.

    Whoa, I am so gonna do this! Thank you for sharing it. My boy’s bday is close so I am going to rush and prepare all the things I need for his party. I invite my family and close friends, hopefully everything is going well.

  43. Jyla posted on February 20, 2017 at 8:40 pm (#

    Wow! It was really an awesome collection of party ideas! Thanks. The boys are always changing their minds on what kind of birthday party they want. But one things for sure they love a themed birthday party.

  44. Isabel posted on May 8, 2017 at 4:16 am (#

    I love some of these ideas, especially the pirate cake pop medallions – they look unbelievably effective and scrumptious! I have two sons and can affirm that pirate themed parties are always a hit with the boys for their birthdays! We’ve actually had five pirate themed parties between the two of them, this is because one adores Peter Pan, while the older one is obsessed with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Either way – I now consider myself as a pirate party planner pro! Though I might have to steal the medallion pop cake idea for another party!

    Anyway I was wondering if you had any tips/inspiration for planning girls parties? My sister is currently planning her daughter’s 6th birthday party,and has enlisted my help – so any tips for princess/fairy/wonderland types of parties would be fabulous.
