Sports Birthdays

Highschool Musical Dessert Table

1.  Highschool Musical Dessert Table – Check out the darling hamburger cupcakes and sugar cookie french fries.  They look like real burgers and fries!  I love the idea of staking them on “bleachers”.  You could totally use this for any kind of school or sports celebration.

All American Sports Party

2.  All American Sports Party – A boys 3rd birthday sports party with an “All American” theme. This party was all done by me, on a budget.(Planning, printables, decorations, food, invitations etc)

Baseball & Softball

3.  “Batter Up” Baby Shower – This baseball themed party was actually a baby shower but of course it would be any little boy’s (or big boy’s) dream birthday as well.

Baseball Wedding

4.  Baseball Wedding – This is seriously such a chic way to decorate with a baseball theme.  These are the most gorgeous way to decorate with baseballs that I’ve seen.  You’ll have the most amazing time scrolling through all of the photos from the wedding.

End of the Season Baseball Celebration

5. End of the Season Baseball Celebration – This is an end of season for their baseball team but I just love all the details and love that went into this party and it would be ideal for a birthday party.

Soccer Themes

Ashton Cup Soccer Party

Hugo's 6th Birthday Party  {Soccer Theme}

7.  Hugo’s 6th Birthday Party  {Soccer Theme} – With soccer balls and green grass spinning around in my head, the colour theme of black, white and green was a no-brainer.  And it worked beautifully.

    We’ve done lots of car racing parties. Using a lot of black & white checkered anything we can find & pulling in colors from favorite drivers car. Look at local party stores, I usually pick out a couple of things there to buy & then also look for inspiration of what I can make at home. When my son was 8, we did a sheet cake with a figure 8 race track on top & you can put hot wheels type cars on it(or I have the racecar jello jiggler mold & made chocolate cars with it.)
