Showcase his age with a homemade speed limit sign. Decorate the cake with a toolbox or truck. He’ll be delighted with anything you do to incorporate his pastime into the party.

Birthday Decorations for Men

Besides the garage theme, you can choose any hobby that men enjoy to theme their party: football, movies, hunting, home improvement, video games, woodworking… There are hundreds of birthday themes to choose from. The two we are featuring here are the Scotch and James Bond theme. The scotch theme fits gentlemen with a more refined taste and a penchant for booze while the James Bond theme is for actions lovers or a guy who sees himself as a man of mystery. Both are very eye catching and work well for hosting a man’s birthday bash where you can stylize the birthday tables with bottles of scotch, glasses, or martini's – shaken, not stirred!
