4 Cool Birthday Party Themes for Boys

Kids' birthdays are very special occasions and with a little planning and creativity, you can turn your boy's party into one he won't soon forget.

  • Pirate Party

    Who's ready to walk the plank? A pirate-themed bash is sure to be a big hit with the boys. Give out a hat, sash, eye patch and hook to each guest as they arrive.

  • Ahoy Mateys!

    An invitation that features a red-and-black color scheme, skull-and-crossbones design and spooky font sets the tone for the pirate gathering.

  • Sweet Treats

    A favorite of all pirates, a skull-and-crossbones design is perfect for decorating sweets. Top cupcakes with a fondant medallion in the party's colors.

  • Hoist the Black Flag

    Let the birthday boy stake his ground with a classic black-and-white pirate flag. Stick it in a glass container full of red candy to coordinate with the theme.

  • A Pirate's Treasure

    Reward guests for making it through the party with mini treasure boxes filled with candy, gold coins, sparkly gems and temporary tattoos.

  • Candy Party

    Let your birthday boy indulge on his special day. This sweet theme is really easy to create.

  • Colorful Invites

    Red, white and blue lollipop invitations are sure to set the mood for this sweet event.

  • Candy Overload

    A candy bar is an essential element for this party theme. If decorating with large jars, buy in bulk. Cotton candy, licorice and marshmallows fill up larger jars without costing a lot.

  • Lollipop Cookies

    Continue the candy theme with other sweets, like lollipop-shaped cookies. Use decorative tent labels to describe all the different treats.

  • Decorate With Lollipops

    Giant swirl lollipops aren't only fun to eat; they're great decorations. Stick them in colorful pots filled with gumballs.

  • Sweet Favors

    Mini swirl lollipops are perfect take-home treats for this theme. Tie with a ribbon and tag for each guest or have each guest fill up a mini takeout box to continue the sugar buzz all the way home.

  • Cowboy Party

    Yee haw! The cowboy theme is a classic one for boys' parties. Set up a set of plastic horseshoes for the kids to play with or go all out and offer pony rides.

  • Photo Invite

    Set the tone of the party by snapping a photo of your cowboy and including it on the invitation.

  • Giddyap Attire

    Boots, hats and jeans are a must when entering cowboy town. Have guests come dressed for the rodeo or pass out hats and bandanas when they arrive.

  • Printable Banner

    Hanging birthday banners are a great way to tie in the theme of the party, whether indoors or out. For the table, lay a burlap runner with leather trim and use bandanas as placemats.

  • Buckaroo Treats

    Cookies shaped like cowboy boots and hats are a must for the cowboy party. Serve up lemonade in mason jars tied with twine and fun striped straws or root beer in old-fashioned bottles. For party favors, place the cookies in cellophane bags, tie with rope and a \"thank you\" tag.

  • Golf Party

    This fun theme is great for outdoor parties, whether hosting it at the driving range, mini golf course or your own backyard.

  • Pull Out the Prep

    Have guests dress in preppy golf attire. For the invitations, use a green and navy color scheme with a little pop of red. This is a popular theme for boys turning four because you can utilize the word \"FORE!\" on the invitation.

  • On the Green

    Mini cupcakes with green grass frosting topped with fondant golf balls and red flags are the perfect bite-size treats. To make the red flags, cut a diamond shape of red paper, fold in half and use double-sided tape to attach to a toothpick.

  • Simple Desserts

    Top a white cake with tees, plastic golf balls and a green and white lollipop to match the theme. Use an overturned golf ball basket as a cake stand.

  • Hole in One

    White powdered donut holes are a perfect snack after the boys finish up their round of golf.
