Soccer is a huge sport that holds massive global appeal. Last year the super bowl had roughly 100 million viewers. A regular old FIFA World Cup game can have up to 300 million viewers. People love their soccer, and more and more little girls and boys are falling in love with the sport. So, how about throwing a Soccer Birthday party for your little Messi or Hamm.
This party was designed for my son’s friend, Bodhi, he is a MAJOR soccer fan. I’m SO glad I was able to work on this with such a cute family.
The main three colors of the set are green, black and white. To pump it up, I included a series of flags where the game is most popular. These mini paper flags can be quickly sewn together to make that super festive garland. And what luck that the bright colors distract from a bit of miscellaneous gardening “stuffs” in the side yard. Hey folks, this is real party with a real family in real life. We get people ready to party, not to host the Queen of England…or Martha Stewart. No offense Martha. And do you see that backdrop? What a SHOWSTOPPER! If I do say so myself. A 4’x3′ piece of foam core covered in a astro turf remnant. All the paper decor on the backdrop is part of this printable kit – just print, cut and Party!
Underneath it all, we used our white tablecloth from Tablevogue, it is easy, wind proof and chocolate frosting indestructible! We added snacks, and sweets and drinks, regular and yogurt pretzels – served in mini printable popcorn boxes – colorful paper cups with veggies and dip and fruit and dip and Gatorade bottles with a flag themed wrapper.
Now, so I know I’m going to get comments about not having pictures of any kids actually playing soccer, but here it is…I don’t. Trust me when I say they did play soccer, but there were so many fun activies for these lucky kids to play that I blinked and they had moved on to something else. I mean, the dad even set up a DIY miniature golf course in their courtyard. How cool is that! So, Soccer and archery (yes, they were all very safe with many adults and precautions) and a mini-golf-water-cannon course.
After all that action, it was time for a sweet treat. We sang the birthday song, and ate yummy lemon cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and chocolate cupcakes with cookies and cream frosting from Meringue Bake Shop.
Besides the worlds best cupcakes, our party mom served some delicious semi-homemade ice-cream sandwiches!
There were some serious sticky fingers after all this yummy, and all the sticky ended up on the soccer themed photo booth props. It was gross but totally worth the cute pictures we got.
Each guest was given a little candy party favor as a thank you….
And they were sent on their merry way into the ocean.
Just kidding, this was another activity set up by the host…part four wheeler, part sled, part boogie board. the kids had a blast. Such a fun party!
