Decorating & Food Ideas

Decoration Ideas for an All Boys Party

Decorations can be either generic or tied to the specific theme you choose for your son’s party. Here are some general suggestions for creating a vibrant atmosphere:

  • Use your child’s favorite colors as your basic color scheme. Drape streamers from the ceiling and anchor groups of balloons around the party area with balloon weights. Add Mylar balloons to some of your balloon groups for added effect.
  • Hang a banner or sign on the front door that reads “Boys Only – Password Required” and then send the secret password to your guests in their invitations.
  • Use toys that your son already owns as decorations, such as toy trucks, train sets, army men, matchbox cars, or animal figurines.
  • As each guest arrives, hand him a party hat to wear. If you are hosting a themed party, match your handouts to the party. For instance, for a Cowboy Party or Pirate Party, hand out cowboy hats or pirate bandanas instead.
  • Find favorite photos of your son and his friends. Make color copies and blow them up to poster size. Hang them around the party area.
  • If your son and his friends like video games, set up a station where everyone can take turns playing a sports or racing game together.
  • If it’s a nice day out, set up an obstacle course outside for the guests to run through. An activity like this is a good way for guests to burn energy!

Boys Only Food Ideas

With a pack of hungry boys, you can’t go wrong with the party staples like pizza, hotdogs, chips, and dip. However, if you want to add a few special treats, consider the following ideas:

  • Use truck-shaped or dog-shaped cookie cutters to cut out sandwiches and cookies. You can also make Jell-o treats into shapes after the Jell-O has set.
  • Make homemade pretzels and serve them with different toppings, such as cinnamon and sugar, parmesan cheese, sea salt, or chocolate powder.
  • Freeze grape juice or red Kool-Aid into ice cubes before the party. During the party, fill each guest’s cup with ginger ale and let them drop their colored ice cubes in the cup, making “magic” bubbly drinks.
  • Serve drinks with silly straws.
  • Serve Dirt Cups.
  • Make Camouflage Candy Apples.
