"Messy Boy Party" Part 1: The Messy Theme

We recently celebrated my son's 4th birthday with a "Messy Boy Party" theme. I wanted something fun, memorable and really geared to little energetic boys. I thought about neat games we could do. After all my ideas involved some level of messiness ... voila! That would be my theme! The Messy Boy Party!
My little invitation shows my son digging in the sand at the beach from earlier in the year. He readily agreed to add some real dirt to the party invitation envelopes to give his little friends a sampling of exciting things to come!  :-)
At the door, guests were greeted with a "Messy Boys Allowed" sign:
And as the party games began they were offered personalized drinks:
Labels for party drinks are always a handy feature. I made these with some of the art from my party invitation:
Next time I'll share the scoop on the Messy GAMES!!! As that was obviously my focus for this party. And then, a YUMMY ice cream cake that took shape as part of the activities!!!
