How will our children ever get past stereotypical gender roles if we parents keep reinforcing them. I agree with the others who've suggested throwing in a little variety with colors and ideas and running with it. I think it'll be a great time.

Exactly! My mother still worries about that stuff and I'm 30!

I have two boys- one of the most sucessful fancy dress parties was "Pirates and Princesses". Although it was a rather more piratical affair complete with jolly roger cake.

I had a party kind of like that in the first grade - but unicorn themed instead of princesses.  My very best friend was a boy, but all my other friends were girls.  He was invited, and we had a unicorns and dragons party, where everyone got to choose between unicorns or dragons or just go with both.  There was face painting and we decorated sugar cookies.  I still remember it as the best party I'd ever had to this day, and it was fun for everyone.  :)
