15 Amazing Boy Party Ideas

Boys Birthday Ideas

A few weeks ago we highlighted some of our favorite GIRL Party Ideas…and this week we’ve rounded up some unique boy birthday party ideas. We try to think outside the ‘party’ box around here, so here are some unique and fun party themes that your son will love!


This goldfish party invitation is fun way to incorporate a theme without having to be too matchy matchy. If your child is anything like mine, he LOVES goldfish crackers as snacks. Incorporate them into the party food, give away real goldfish as favors (with parental permission) and use a variety of patterns in these colors to tie in the party decor. You can find the invitation HERE.


This crabby party is a different way to host a pool party or cookout. You can add some class to this kids party with bold stripes and americana colors to make it great for younger or older boys alike. You can find the full Preppy Crab Party HERE.


I am head over heels in love with this fishing printable that is new to the shop. Does your son LOVE the outdoors and all things fishing? This party idea gives you a great color palette to work with and a large variety of ways to incorporate food, decor, games, and favors…you could serve fish sticks, goldfish crackers, and root”beer” to your attendees OR send them with brown paper lunches. There are so many options with this party idea…go wild! HERE is the link to the invitation.


Planes, trains, and automobiles may not be a brand new theme, but it is a fun boys party idea. You have so many options with this theme and the gorgeous bright primary color palette and little boys and girls alike will enjoy all the fun party tie ins you can do with this.
