Party Decorations

Use jerseys in frames to bring your venue a personal look that will impress the guests.  You can place miniature balls on pedestals or in bowls on the tables as centerpieces, and add fun little touches like confetti to make them really stand out. This is a great theme for breaking out your sports stamps and creating different personalized stamp-art like labels for food, or name cards for the guest tables.  Use balloons to add to the festive quality, if you use a sharpie you can make them look just like basketballs/soccer balls as well.  If you happen to have a small hoop or goals, you can incorporate them into your party area as a fun decoration as well. Have a chalkboard set up with fun sports artwork for a neat, unique touch that will stand out remarkably in your venue area.

Party Food Ideas

Make your foods look sport friendly by creating a lot of different round choices, like cake pops, decorated to represent basketballs or soccerballs. Sugar cookies, cupcakes, even sandwiches cut into circles can have be a fun addition to a snacking table. A cake shaped like a court or field with little balls on it is sure to draw attention and taste delicious.

Party Games

For entertainment, the guests can play a rousing game of basketball or soccer, letting them work out that energy with a blast of fun. You could set up a mini-hoop indoors or let them get wild outside. Another fun activity would be to set up a craft corner and let your little sports fans decorate their own special jerseys, giving them a memento to remember the party by.

Party Favors

Let your visitors take home some fun favors, make some chex mix and then place little edible soccer/basketballs inside for a sporty addition. You could have your child sign some mini-balls for them to take home as well for a way to really make your little one feel special and famous. An additional fun take home gift could be candles that are in jars that you, or the guests can decorate with the fun sports theme.
