Best Birthday Party Ideas for Boys

What are the top trending birthday party ideas for boys in 2021?

If you are thinking about what do boys really want for their birthday party theme, you are in the right place! We have compiled a list of best birthday party ideas especially for boys, ranging across all interests and ages. For toddler age we would recommend going with circus or paw patrol party themes, for elementary-aged boys consider themes like football or Harry Potter themed parties and for older boys why not throw the best car racing or video-game of their chosen party! Without further ado - let's start planning the birthday party your little man will never forget!

Car Racing themed party

If you are having a Grand Prix themed party going with the red and black colour scheme will be absolutely perfect. Show your love for Formula 1 with a mix of theme birthday cake and dessert table decorations, consider items like car and checkered flag biscuits, round gear-box cake pops and personalised water bottles. Black, red and white balloon garland across your dessert table and free-floating helium inflated balloons will certainly add that wow factor.  And don't forget about theme tableware, cutlery and table accessories to take your car racing party to another level.

Football themed party

Do you know a football fanatic? Kick off a brilliant event with a beautifully decorated party football field. Entertainment is a key here, if you are thinking of keeping 30 boys under the age of 12 in one place without crushing the place down think again. Getting a professional team of kids football entertainers will keep little monster busy for a couple of hours. As for decorating the place, 16" helium inflated football balloons will turn your party space into a football ground. For the party table, using an artificial grass table runner and scattering some little footballer toys on it will not just give your party table that extra wow factor but will also entertain your little guests while they are having food. Of course don't forget about themed tableware, cutlery and party bags.

Roll up, roll up! The show is about to begin! The circus theme is a great party idea for toddlers and both boys and girls up to the age of 10. You can use bright red, turquoise blue, green and yellow colours or incorporate soft pink, maroon or faded yellow colours for a more vintage look. Circus props like large soft animal toys, ticket booth, carousel horses, entranceway will certainly set the scene. And of course, don't forget about the carnival backdrop, clown entertainers and a themed dessert table.
