Hmmm. Tough age. Still wanting to be mommy's boy while proving to his friends that he's not. A lot of our local "guys" have skate parties (either roller or ice), or bowling. Is it going to be boy/girl, or just boy? That would make a difference. One of our friends' parents just opened up their home for a swim and video game party. Snack trays with mini sandwiches, cheese, crackers, veggies, sodas, and a loud stereo. Kids just like to hang out, not necessarily have it all planned or on schedule. As for decor, try camoflage, and hide his presents around, like a scavenger hunt in a jungle or something. Have fun!
