Birthday Party Ideas for Men

Birthday parties for women are pretty easy. Find some pink stuff, anything shiny, and surround her with her best friends and favorite family members and she’ll remember it for a lifetime. Women love parties and love being thought of. For men, it can be a bit more difficult. Believe it or not, there are lots of ideas and decorations for a manly birthday celebration.

A Sports Celebration

Most men are crazy about their sports teams. Who cares if the NFL season is over? You can guarantee that the NFL fan in your house hasn’t stopped thinking about his favorite teams just because it isn’t football season at the moment. Make the birthday man feel like an all-star with the NFL Party Zone Kin-N-Kaboodle.

The official NFL licensed party pack includes plates, napkins, cups, invitations, cutlery, balloons, a table cover and curling ribbon. Want to really impress the birthday man and his friends? Go for the deluxe kit- it includes everything listed above plus a banner, a football balloon, candles, and blue and red streamers.

If the guy loves football, he’s probably a big competitor. Set up a flick football game on one of your tables and watch it bring out the kid in the birthday man. It will be a birthday celebration he won’t soon forget.

Military Mania

Whether the birthday man is in the military or not, this party idea will have him feeling like a hero.

The American Heroes Kit-N-Kaboodle pack can get you started with plates, napkins, cutlery, balloons, cups, invitations and curling ribbon. But don’t stop there! Make his cake unforgettable with these camouflage chunky candles.

You might want to have a television set up somewhere at the party showing his favorite war movies. It will give guests something to do and add to the military atmosphere you’re trying to create.

If you’re having trouble finding the perfect gift for the birthday hero, think about a day of paintball, or some time at the shooting range. The gift will mean more if it goes with the theme of the party.

Viva Las Vegas

Men love Vegas, but if you can’t afford to send the birthday boy to Sin City, you can bring the fun to him with a casino-themed birthday bash!

You will naturally want to have tables set up for poker and blackjack. Make the event extra special with some personalized poker chips. Not only will they be fun the night of the party, but years down the road when he’s playing poker with friends.

Hang some casino ceiling danglers to set the scene, and use anything red and black to decorate. If the birthday man is also an Elvis fan, throw in some Elvis decorations as well.

Host a Man Shower for Grooms-to-Be

Personalized-Gingham-Mint-TinWhat do you do when you have a male friend or colleague getting married and you want to host a party that isn’t the bachelor party? You host a Man Shower! A Man Shower is a great way to throw a party for the man you know from the office, school, or other place who’s getting married. ShindigZ has a ton of party supplies and Man Shower themes such as BBQ, various sports, casino, or racecars. Here are our tips and party supplies for a Barbeque Man Shower.

Invite guests to the Man Shower with a Hot Off the Grill Invitation. The invitation is in the shape of a grill and has space for you to write your party details too.

Welcome guests to the party with a BBQ Bonanza Personalized Banner custom printed with your own wording. Our banners are printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and are available in several sizes for your party. The BBQ Bonanza Personalized Banner features a gingham border and a great barbeque photo print. Have guests sign the banner for a great keepsake.

Keep decorations for this party simple. Cover tables with gingham table covers and use red and white gossamer decorating material to create swags, drapes, and curtains or to create chair bows.

Balloons are a great decoration for this party. Create balloon bunches of red, black, and white balloons and add a Grill Mylar Balloon or a Beer Mug Mylar Balloon for a great accent. Balloon bunches look best in clusters of odd numbers. Use coordinating curling ribbon to secure the balloons to a balloon weight.

String a beer light strand around your room for a fun lighting effect that will brighten up the room and add a funny decoration. Plus, the groom might like to keep the lights after the party and try to convince the bride to hang them in their basement or den.

For table decorations, cover the tables in red and white gingham tablecovers. Add a black bandanna to the middle and set a cluster of beer mug candles on it for a simple, festive centerpiece. Check out our BBQ Table Decorations for pictures and table decorating supplies.

For tableware, use red, white, or black plastic tableware or the tableware from our BBQ Party Kit. The tableware for 8 features a bold BBQ design and makes your party theme really sizzle. Create coordinating cutlery bundles by wrapping the matching plastic cutlery in custom imprinted napkins and securing them with some (plastic) barbed wire garland or curling ribbon.

If you’re going to have activities at your party, other than eating and talking, think outside the box of typical shower games. The groom will probably not want to be dressed up in a toilet paper tux or predict when he will have his first baby. Fun games for Man Showers include activities the groom already likes to do. If he likes to play the Wii, he’ll love to play with his friends. Poker, our black jack game set, or other casino games might also be fun. If you want to have wedding-themed activities, set up a trivia game about the groom and his bride, or a wedding trivia game to get the groom and his groomsmen up to date on wedding traditions and the stories behind them.

You’ll want to send your guests home with party favors to remember the Man Shower with. For this party a beer mug candle is a fun favor. Our Custom Gingham Mint Tins will be a hit too. You can add your own wording to the lid and guests can even carry them in their pockets to make sure their breath is fresh at the wedding.

There are tons of ways you can host a fun shower for your friend, the groom. Tell us about your Man Shower!
