It’s time to talk parties again! Only today we’re talking all about the dudes. It’s always tough figuring out a great way to celebrate birthdays for men, because generally they’re not into the fluffy cupcakes and pretty flowers that most of us ladies find irresistible. Have a birthday boy who will be celebrating soon? I’ve rounded up 10 unique ways to celebrate your special guy’s birthday! No worries, there’s not a single flower in sight.
SOUTHERN PICNIC PARTY
I love the idea of hosting a traditional southern picnic in honor of a special man in your life. Think barbecue, boiled peanuts, corn hole, and a little southern charm to top things off! See more at The Sweetest Occasion.
We all know that dudes love the great outdoors. This camping party is perfect for that outdoorsy vibe while still maintaining a classy air. Serve up traditional campsite fare like hot dogs and burgers — and for dessert, don’t forget the self-serve s’mores station! See more at The Sweetest Occasion.
MEXICAN FIESTA BIRTHDAY
Roll out a little international flavor with a fiesta! Precisely 99.9% of guys seem to be obsessed with Taco Bell, and this just adds a sophisticated touch to an old standby without squashing the fun. Don’t forget the margaritas, burritos, and piñata! See more at The Sweetest Occasion.
BACKYARD DINNER PARTY
If you want to celebrate a foodie without spending a ton, plan a fun background dinner party. Cook yourself or have it catered. Keep the guest list small and pick a selection of great wines and beers to complement your meal. See more at The Sweetest Occasion.
What’s a better way to celebrate the birthday guy than by hanging up his mug for everyone to see? Host a sweet but casual at-home party jazzed up with party hats and decor made from black and white photos of your guy throughout the years. See more at The Sweetest Occasion.
Go retro and bust out the bowling shoes, nachos, and pizza, and invite your guy and his pals to the bowling alley for a little old-fashioned competition! This is a great option if he’s a sports nut but you’re looking for an activity where guests can still mingle and talk to one another. See more at Hostess with the Mostess.
GRUMPY OLD MEN PARTY
Why limit the fun to just a few hours? For the ultimate guys’ day out for the birthday boy, have the crew dress up in vintage-inspired “old man” attire and head out for a day of playing golf, lunch, and partaking of their favorite beverages. See more at Jesi Haack Design.
40 OZ. OF FUNK PARTY
This birthday party idea is perfect for the distinguished gentleman who also has a love for old school rap music. Pairing a funky playlist with high-end cocktails, you can’t go wrong! See more at The Sweetest Occasion.
VIDEO GAME PARTY
Every guy loves video games. We know this. Invite his buddies over for an evening of video gaming and serve up game-themed cupcakes along with easy finger foods, like pigs in a blanket and chicken wings. Photo by Hello Naomi.
