Maybe a fishing or hunting part if he’s into that? Or what about a backyard BBQ party? Beer and grilling 🙂

@leporidae:  oh oh oh, NOW I understand 🙂 Well, I’d say  just keep the colors “masculine” and keep with the original theme 🙂

I threw my DH a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle 30th birthday party and it was amazing. He absolutely loved it and it is easy to find the stuff everywhere.

Just a few decor photos for inspiration. 🙂

Although I think it’s a cute idea, the issue is that the “unbirthday party” theme, being from Alice in Wonderland, will still be feminine even if you do it in all masculine colors and use beer… and you also run the risk that he (or male guests) don’t understand the theme.

I have some ideas for how you could stick with the “unbirthday party” theme in masculine colors and textures, but it would definitely be a very upscale, loung-y, gentlemen in smoking jackets sort of look.

I also have some ideas for some generally cool masculine themes that are still tasteful and still allow you to have fun with the little details (not dollar store Superman theme, though nothing wrong with that if that’s what you’re looking for!).

If it were me and I was throwing Mr. 99 an un-birthday party…I would probably do a really wonky Lumberjack Themed Party with all kinds of log cutting, chainsaw toting, flapjack eating glory….but we’re weird.
