Party Themes for Boys

by blackspanielgallery

Having a successful birthday party for a boy is easy. Just use party supplies and decorations foe a theme that the child likes.

There are many appropriate themes for a birthday party for a boy. Some are appropriate for younger children while others are appropriate for older children. As children get older some ideas might be embarrassing to have known to their friends even if the theme is one the child enjoys. And some themes elude the younger children.

One thing you can do is mix things up. If there are to be a range of children attending the party, get some supplies for one theme, other supplies for another theme, and so on. There is no limit. And if it is to be a party with both boys and girls attending some things appropriate for the girls might even be a good idea.

How Do I Determine a Good Theme?

First, it is important to know what the child likes.  Then, it is necessary that party supplies for that theme be available.  But most boys have several interests.  Do not be afraid to mix themes.  You are entertaining children, and not making a social page statement.  Children enjoy what they like.  So, it the plates are from Disney Cars, and the balloons are pirate themed, and the table decorations are from Star Wars, that is fine.  Actually, a multitude of themes mixed together has a better chance of hitting a favorable point with all of the guests.


The one thing you do not want to do is to use a character designed for the three year olds as a theme for a twelve year old boy.  Make the party age appropriate.


Finding Themes

Look at a good party supply site like Amazon for party supplies.  The themes are listed, and one click can display the supplies available.  What is more is these kinds of suppliers want you to find what you want, so it is a good idea to assume the themes are arranged by popularity.  


Of course there is no way for a party supply shop to know how the supplies are to be used, so they guess whether it is most often a party for boys or a party for girls.  Many themes are used for both, so you might also want to look at themes for girl parties,   This is especially important if there are both boys and girls to be in attendance.

What Will You Need?

The items shown are representative.  Similar items exist for most themes.  So first. pick your theme.

I strongly recommend a party kit.  It makes shopping easier.  A good kit will tell you the number of guests it will serve.  Usually, a party kit will contain cups. plates, napkins, forks, and often a tablecloth.  Occasionally, you will have a choice of how much you really want a lit to contain. Of course you can buy individual pieces to supplement what you get in a pack.

I also need to do one for girls. I deliberately waited because if I wrote one right after the other I would inadvertently repeat wording, and have a problem with unique content. Then I got busy with a math book project, and for a few months had little writing time. Thanks for the comment, it brought the need for the other article to mind.

blackspanielgallery, Helpful, nice, and thoughtful! The mixed themes and party kits make party planning for success so much easier. It's nice to see the attention to parties for boys since the ideas work not only for mixed ages of boys but also for some mixed groups of boys and girls, such as the latest Star Wars-inspired party kits and themes. .
