Admittedly, throwing a party for girls is lot easier than throwing a party for boys. This is because boys are boys and girls are girls and it’s difficult to find generic birthday party idea for boys than for girls. For one thing, there are lots of party themes available for girls but very limited for boys.
Moms and even the party organizers had to pass the crucial stage of planning, putting their heads together to come up with not just an ordinary party for boys but to ensure that the party will not look like a girls party at all. Here are some tips on how to throw a party for boys that everybody will enjoy.
Since boys are generally easier to please, it would a lot easier on your part as the one who’s tasked to plan a party for him in throwing a perfect and successful birthday bash.
Ask the birthday celebrant
This is basic that most of the time taken for granted. We all know that parents most especially mother’s knows best. But for boys their opinion matters. I am pretty sure even if a child has its own idea on how his party will look like. Boys have their own peculiar ways of doing things no matter how weird it is. They are boys and not girls where magical themed party is enough. Wearing gowns that resemble the story of Snow White, Cinderella, Elsa and other Disney Princesses. It pays to ask them.
When asking the celebrant’s opinion, you have to be receptive and open to different opinions because in the first place, that’s your main point of asking their opinion. But you should also know how to filter information and only accept those that make sense and you think are valuable.
It’s also important to ask the celebrator about his idea of a perfect birthday party. While you’re at it, it’s also the perfect time to ask the person of the specific details of his ideal birthday party the more detailed the information you have gathered, the better. To make it a point that you make the most of this opportunity to ask the person himself.
Acknowledged. Insert. Fused.
It is not enough that you asked them for the sake of asking them. The purpose of having encounter with your boys is to get their opinion and merge it with yours. With mother’s own idea alone, they have the tendency to execute the plans and run the celebration. Thinking that this is good, that is best, I like this, let’s do this as if the party is for her. Kids’ idea of how to hold a party is most of the times broad to the extent that it escapes from reality. This is where mom will come into picture to the trimming of ideas and insert what she has in order to make it feasible without losing the very idea.
The more information you have gathered the better. Now that you have managed to get information from different sources as to what’s the best birthday idea to choose, the biggest challenge now is how to make sense of these sets information. You need to be very well versed in synthesizing loads of information and come up with a decision out of that information.
Choose your guests
It is of paramount importance to choose who will comprise your child’s crowd. Your selection of guests is determinative of how much you need to spend in entertaining them and the kind of food you need to prepare. Everybody knows that in a party birthday where majority of participants are adults, it requires more time in terms of accommodating them except those little kids where what they only need is a ground to play with. Children’s tastes vary as well from those of adults.
Choosing your guests doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be very picky on who are your guest would be. But it’s more of becoming selective in choosing the guests. Although the two may sound alike but they have some sort of distinction.
From colors up to games, it should reflect the personality of the birthday celebrant who is a boy. But the games should not by all means discriminate girl participants. Make use of themes like, Superman, Iron Man, Batman etc. It is good to require your guests to be in character, but this should not be a requirement that everyone must strictly observed. It may lessen your participants.
Of course you want to maintain the masculinity feeling of the party because you’re planning a party for a guy. It would do no harm if you will stick to stereotypical party theme for men or boys like on the choice of color or party theme. For color choice, blue is common among birthday party for boys.
Make the party simple
Simplicity is beauty as the saying goes. The success of one’s party does not depend on how extravagant it is. How flamboyant and expensive the party is. Most of the times it is the thought that counts.
As compared to girls, boys are typically simpler and easier to please as compared to most girls. With that, it will be easier for you or anyone who is planning a birthday party for a boy to throw a party for a boy because they prefer simple parties and not much on extravagant parties.
Qualities of a successful party
Successful parties don’t have to be extravagant. Sometimes, even simple parties are those more memorable ones. A successful party is the one that makes the celebrator the center of the event and no one else.
If you’re able to highlight the person as the center of the celebration, then you’re on the right track of throwing the right party for that person. It’s also very essential to take note that the celebrator must be the star of the day and that he should feel that he’s special in a non-superficial kind of way. As a party organizer, it’s your duty to ensure that these simple yet important aspects must be taken into account.
