Sports Themed Birthday Party

5…4…3…2…1…Happy Birthday! I feel like I say this with every birthday, but how in the world did 5 years already pass by? My oldest daughter celebrated her 5th birthday this past weekend and we had a BALL of a time! She loves sports. All sports! So when she decided (a year ago!) that she wanted to have a sports themed birthday party, I thought it suited her well.

First Period Concessions

Since it was a sports themed birthday party, we decided to have food that you could find at the ball park on game day.

  • Of course you have to have hot dogs. At first I wasn’t going to because I wanted a cooking-free party (meaning no one had to man a grill or oven) but my husband insisted and I am glad he did. The hot dogs were a BIG hit!
  • Soft pretzels
  • Nachos and cheese
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Big league chew bubble gum
  • Mini pizzas

Second Period Beverages

It was so hot that day so I knew we had to have a lot to drink. I got out the Gatorade container and went to work!

  • Orange Gatorade
  • Shaved Iced
  • Lemonade
  • Sweet Tea
  • Water
  • Sprite/Coke
  • Yunegling and Root beer on tap

Third Period Decorations & Favors

This is my favorite part of any birthday party! I hit up my two favorite spots for decorations: Oriental Trading and Family Dollar.

Oriental Trading has so many sports themed birthday party things to choose from! It was so hard to decide but I was on a budget. I purchased almost all of party decorations from Oriental Trading. Plus we found not one, but two awesome games to incorporate into the party. The piñata is always a big hit at our kid birthday parties so we bought the coolest baseball piñata from Oriental Trading too! The shipping was so fast so if you are last minute planning, I highly recommend ordering from Oriental Trading.

Now for the favors. I usually don’t do anything big for party favors but I happened to stroll into Family Dollar one day and they had the coolest sports notebooks and baseball bat pencils. So I bought all of them at they had and incorporated those into the favor bags. I also found a sports themed fan and some glow necklaces for the bags too. Although I must say the bag of Big League Chew bubble gum in each bag was the favorite!

Overtime

I think everyone at the party had a great time. I heard rave reviews about the concessions and how good the food was! Capri and all of her friends had a blast swimming in the pool and playing games. If you are thinking about doing a sports themed birthday party for any age, I highly recommend it!

The Choosy Mommy came to life as I began writing for the Choosy Kids (www.choosykids.com) blog from the mom perspective. We also have bloggers who are teachers, nutritionist, pediatricians, dental experts, etc. and I share my two cents on food choices, physical activity, and daily health routines plus so much more! I have a ton to share but didn’t want to take over the Choosy Kids blog so I decided it was best to grow The Choosy Mommy brand.
