Boy food doesn’t have to be pretty. Appetizing, yes, and presented in an appealing array, but forget the fuss, and enjoy the simplicity! Is it a cupcake? Then it’s great! It matters less to most boys if it sports special décor. Colorful toothpick flags, a few colorful candies, or a smattering of candy sprinkles and you’re good to go. Cupcake papers in a bright color or print or supporting theme are a painless decorating plus. Or make a traditional cake and use crushed graham crackers for sand, food-coloring-greened coconut for grass, and park his miniature cars or trucks or construction equipment on top. A round cake is easy to transform into the game ball of choice with a little piping icing. Mimic a popular building brick with a rectangle cake topped with circles cut from a second layer, or hurry to the finish line by forming the classic connecting bumps with round sandwich cookies.
Finger food is a good idea for any party, and your bevy of boys are definitely finger fooders. Sweets are an easy go-to, but if you want to cut down on the sugar without busting the budget, popcorn is a great alternative that most kids like and the spills are non-lethal to carpets and upholstery. Nuts are a little more pricey but still a good option, and pretzels and Goldfish crackers are kid favorites that fit into a party budget. Always ask about food allergies and have safe alternatives on hand for those who need them. Moms of allergic children are usually quick to come to the rescue with party-sized servings out of those expensive bags of restricted-ingredient treats.
Personalized water bottles are a success on several levels. Colorful, patterned tape around the label is party décor, and adding names in permanent marker is a special touch that also eliminates confusion about whose drink is where. Water bottle caps are often difficult to get started, so you might want to pre-open the bottles slightly and reseal as part of your party prep.
