Soccer Party Details:
This is what Helen said about planning/styling the party- “Master 5 absolutely loves his soccer so it was pretty easy this year to decide the theme for his birthday party – SOCCER!
To add to the party fun, one of the Coaches from the company ‘Ginger Soccer’ came along to join in and play some party games with the little guests. Just after guests arrived, they were treated to join in and play some fun team games and learn some cool new soccer skills.
I wanted to do something a little different from the traditional soccer party colours, so incorporated the colours of royal blue and orange of their logo. I also added some synthetic grass as a runner for the party table to give it a soccer pitch feel. To continue the theme, grasses were used in the sweet and cookie pots also.
It was a load of fun coming up with the names of the foods for the printables which were all named in a soccer theme. To eat, there were Half-Time Hot Dogs, Players Pizza, Free-Kick Fruit, Kickin’ Cookies, Coaches Cupcakes, Penalty Popcorn, Striker Sweets, Header H2O, Corner Cookie Pops, and Champion Cooler.
And of course to fit the theme, the cake just had to be a life-size soccer ball, made from Master 5′s favourite flavours – Vanilla Cake layered with Chocolate Buttercream.
Once the party guests were leaving they were given a thank you party box titled “Thanks for kickin’ it with me” filled with lollies, rubber erasers, pencils, yoyo’s and mini bouncing balls.”
